Biography

A founding members of the post-punk rock group The Police, Andy Summers provided the elegant, sinuous guitar work that personified the group's best work on songs like "Every Breath You Take," "Don't Stand So Close to Me," "Roxanne" and countless others. A veteran of the late 1960s psychedelic scene in his native England, Summers came together with Sting and Stewart Copeland to form The Police in the late 1970s. Their music, which embraced world and jazz music within its tight, intricate melodies, won worldwide favor and made them one of the most successful groups of the early 1980s. The Police disbanded in 1984, after which Summers composed music for film while pursuing a solo career which hewed closer to jazz and experimental sounds, as well as critically acclaimed stints as an author and photographer. In 2007, The Police reunited for one of the highest grossing tours in music history, which underscored Summers' position as a key figure in late 20th century rock-n-roll.
