Police- Driven to Tears- Buenos Aires 12-2007

If any fans in the massive audience witnessing the reunion tour by the Police in Buenos Aires back in December 2007 were literally “Driven to Tears“, then no doubt they were tears of joy. This kind of reaction was replayed nightly so often that the multi-year, multi-continent musical dragnet ranks in the top three biggest […]

The Police- Regatta de Blanc 40th Anniversary- Sting, Stewart Copeland, Andy Summers

“Love can mend your life, but love can break your heart…”- “Message in a Bottle”, 1979 (Sting) “Outlandos d’Amour  has a certain grotesque, naïve charm about it,” Sting offers in this interview about the second album by The Police, “but Regatta de Blanc   is infinitely a better record.” Both the critics and the rock audience agreed, […]

Cheap Trick- Dream Police- Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander

we find out from my guests Cheap Trick lead singer Robin Zander and guitarist/songwriter Rick Nielsen that the band had actually interrupted recording their fourth studio album, “Dream Police” , in order to do that first Japanese tour in 1978. Several hits would eventually come from “Dream Police”, including “Voices”,”It’s the Way of the World”, and the title song, but those would have to wait while Cheap Trick scuttled all plans while they learned to surf the tsunami of success from the unexpected live album.

The Police- Synchronicity- Sting, Stewart Copeland

Starting with 1978’s “Outlandos d’Amour”,  the UK breakthrough “Regatta de Blanc”,  their 1980 worldwide hit “Zenyatta Mondatta”,  and “Ghost in the Machine” the following year, you could debate whether the first four  albums by the Anglo-American band The Police  were significant enough creatively and commercially to issue a warrant to book them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Yet this fact is certain: the 1983 Police album  “Synchronicity” guaranteed it.

R.E.M.- Out of Time 30th- Michael Stipe, Peter Buck, Mike Mills

It is clear on the thirtieth anniversary of R.E.M.’s “Out of Time” album that the song from it, “Losing My Religion”, has weathered the time in between exceedingly well. “Pop culture, particularly in the US, everything comes and goes in cycles, as things do,” points out R.E.M. singer/ lyricist Michael Stipe, “which we all realize as we all grow older and wiser, whether it’s politics or music or pop culture…I always wanted to have a song that would be considered ‘the song of the Summer’. As it was, that song kind of became the song of the year,” he chuckled. Ten million copies sold and three Grammy Awards later, nobody could argue the case.

Sting- The Soul Cages 30th Anniversary

The Sting and I…We had already done multiple interviews when he was in The Police and now Sting had just released his third solo album by the time we reconvened to discuss “The Soul Cages” in 1991. Sting had lost both parents by then, the most recent  his father, and was clearly wrestling with his star ascending amidst pain and personal loss.
