Bonus Trivia


Part of The Police's love of international sounds and their focus on a worldwide market came from the background of Stewart Copeland and his brother Miles, the band's manager; both had grown up as globetrotting CIA brats.


Sting had a small but important role in the 1979 film version of The Who's Quadrophenia and went on to appear in numerous movies in the '80s and '90s.


Before dying his hair and trying to pass himself off as a punk in The Police's early phase, Andy Summers had been a member of Neil Sedaka's band and guitarist in a late lineup of the Soft Machine.
