The Police

At the very beginning of their career The Police were praised for their cross-thinking live qualities: As a band that almost could turn Supernatural their already unique studio sound on stage in something. Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers negotiated controlled energy (-schÜbe) and haunting melodies with improvised security of a jazz trio, but they were also the most unbridled dynamics of a punk rock band clearly hinted -, with this mixture, they were in no time to the most important rock bands of the 70s and 80 years. And far beyond ...

Her real breakthrough then took place at the time of the punk movement in the late 1970s. All three members of The Police originally came from completely different (sound) corners: Summers played with The Animals, Soft Machine and Kevin Ayers, Copeland was a member of Curved Air and had started a short solo career under the name Klark Kent, while Sting had collected his first musical experiences with various fusion jazz combos. Together they had understated virtuosity and the unorthodox approach when they crossed reggae grooves with complex rhythmic arrangements. With the energetic as groundbreaking guitar solos by Summers, the complex polyrhythms of Copeland and the softly gliding bass lines and the contrasting voice of Sting, it was clear immediately that The Police were the most daring and the most important representatives of the New Wave ...

Their first album "Outlandos D'Amour" was released in 1978 to AM Records: And return mail climbed it with hits such as "Roxanne" and "So Lonely" in the charts. The following year, the trio put already with "Reggatta de Blanc" successor before, who also occupied the top position and, among other hits like "Message in a Bottle" and "Walking on the Moon" also fOr the first major award made: The Police were her first Grammy for the title track. "Zenyatta Mondatta" followed again a year later (1980) and gave them two more Grammys and the top 10 hits "Do not Stand So Close To Me" and "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da". 1981 published The Police finally "Ghost in the Machine", which was to get two platinum awards with the two hit singles "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic" and "Spirits in the Material World" equal.

After a one year break, The Police did back together to record their absolute milestone with "Synchronicity": An album that proved to be her farewell to the work in the studio and at the same time provided for the third Grammy Award. To date, the most successful Police album was represented on "Synchronicity" and "Every Breath You Take", one of the most important rock ballads of the eighties and - later - the reason for a very special award: The BMI Award for Eight Million inserts on the radio (2005). In the US radio landscape they were in the eighties by far the most played band while they were able to celebrate similar successes in the UK: five first-placed albums and singles. In 1982, The Police a Brit Award in the category "Best Group", followed by the Brit Award in the category "Outstanding Contribution to British Music" in 1985th

After the band broke up in 1984, the three hyperactive sound-revolutionaries concentrated on their solo careers. Sting released in 1985 the album "Dream of the blue Turtles", for which he is a series of high-profile jazz musicians on board took (among others Kenny Kirkland, Darryl Jones, Omar Hakim and Branford Marsalis). His successful solo series should Sting in the following years with "Bring On The Night", "Nothing Like The Sun", "The Soul Cages", "Ten Summoner's Tales", "Mercury Falling", "Brand New Day", "All This Time "," Sacred Love "and his recently released" songs from the labyrinth "album continue continuously.
