‘We didn’t continue on and on and on like U2 or the Stones’
I am not sure what mr. summers wants to tell us, but I myself don’t see it as an achievement on the police’s part that they disappeared after synchronicity and arise like the phoenix from the ashes a good 20 years later. I’d rather call it an accident, something that especially summers did not actually intend back then.
he himelf only recently said that they could have continued with a few more great records -> and that’s what U2 did anyway. apart from that no single U2 record is as weak as ghost in the machine (with all due respect to the few great tunes that the record contains).
I am happy police got back together, I am going to see them live in september; and andy summers is one of my top 4 guitar players.
he shouldn’t be telling himself bollocks like that though. U2 have worked their backs off the last 20 years, as a band, an experience that despite his great solo efforts summers certainly hasn’t achieved.
Andy will be wishing they hadn’t hung it up when they had when he realizes that playing songs that are 30 years old every night will make him feel as old as he is. Although, I don’t think he’s every year of the 64 he’s listed as being in the article.
U2 and the Stones had the nerve to carry on past the Joshua Tree and Exile On Main Street. Had they not, the world would have lost out on a lot of great music.
A fairer comparison would have been his band to Echo and the Bunnymen.
How does he know it was their hight point. They split over argumuents and fights. Sounds like a whole barrel of spite to me, a convenient truth. Nothing to do with reality!
That’s arguments, not argumuents! Sorry, had a little drink about an hour ago.. 🙂
The Police failed as a band, mostly because Sting is a selfish ass, and also because Stu Copeland would ride Sting like a little pony-boy and he couldn’t take it. Wankers!
In my opinion, Men at Work were just as good as the Police.
I saw the Synchronicity Tour, and it wasn’t all that, in fact it was rather boring. I don’t expect anything more from this money-grabbing reunion tour.
Sting should stick to Lute Music!
