The Sting and I...We had already done multiple interviews when he was in The Police and now Sting had released three solo albums, including Fall 1987's "Nothing Like the Sun", by the time we reconvened 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.

By the time October 1981 's fourth Police album "Ghost in the Machine" was dispatched, the exposed roots and influences shown by the London-based trio founded by Yankee drummer Stewart Copeland, who had emerged from the dying embers of the Punk Rock scene there, were more Miles and Mingus than Johnny Rotten. "Ghost in the Machine" topped the UK sales chart, #2 on Billboard album chart, over three million copies sold in America alone, and Rolling Stone magazine ranking it at #322 on their Top 500 Albums of All Time list. Police commissioner Stewart Copeland and six-string sharpshooter Andy Summers are your personal Ghost...busters with me here In the Studio in this classic rock interview.

It seems that stardom for The Police had occurred in the UK after the release of their second album, "Regatta de Blanc" , but mainstream popularity in the U.S. still eluded them until October 1980's "Zenyatta Mondatta". My guests In the Studio are Police-men Sting, Stewart Copeland, and Andy Summers.

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…

"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, garnering two #1 hits in the UK with "Walking on the Moon" and "Message in a Bottle", plus topping the album sales chart there with Regatta de Blanc.

"Outlandos d'Amour' has a certain grotesque, naive charm about it," Sting confesses in this interview about the Police debut,"but 'Regatta de Blanc' was infinitely a much better record."

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.
