Sting - a musical titan, truly worthy of the one-name moniker.
Born Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner in England on October 2, 1951, Sting first realized his desire to become a famous musician around the age of 6.
It was while wearing a black & striped jersey during a performance with a childhood group called the Phoenix Jazzmen, that Sumner earned his nickname. His bumblebee like get-up caught the attention of everyone in the room. Since then, he's used the name almost exclusively.
It was 1977 that Sting's fortune would change forever. He moved to London, and started gigging with Stewart Copeland. Another guitarist from the area named Andy Summers quickly joined the fold to form The Police. One of the all-time legendary bands, the Police released five chart-topping albums and won six Grammy Awards between 1978 and 1983.
While their early sound & style was punk inspired, The Police soon transformed to reggae/rock with pop overtones.
The Police at the peak of their popularity in 1984, Sting quickly established himself as a viable solo artist, one obsessed with expanding the boundaries of pop music. Sting incorporated heavy elements of jazz, classical, and world beat into his music, writing lyrics that were literate and self-consciously meaningful, and he was never afraid to emphasize this fact in the press. For such unabashed ambition, he was equally loved and reviled, with supporters believing that he was at the forefront of literate, intelligent rock and his critics finding his entire body of work pompous. Either way, Sting remained one of pop's biggest superstars for the first ten years of his solo career, before his record sales began to slip.
Before the Police officially split-up, Sting had started work on his first solo album. It was 1984 and Sting chose a group of jazz musicians as a supporting band. Sting recorded his solo debut, The Dream of the Blue Turtles, in 1985. Young jazz lions Branford Marsalis, Kenny Kirkland, and Omar Hakim backed Sting in perfunctory fashion.
"If You Love Somebody Set Them Free," "Love Is the Seventh Wave," and "Fortress Around Your Heart" each reached the American Top 10 list. A documentary called Bring on the Night caught the band in action in 1986.
After a failed attempt at a Police reunion, Sting began recording Nothing Like the Sun and it garnered hit singles with "We'll Be Together" and "They Dance Alone."
Soon thereafter, Sting began his relationship with Amnesty International. He got behind environmentalism and established the Rainforest Foundation to raise awareness about destruction of the Brazilian rainforest.
In 1991 Sting released the brooding The Soul Cages. Sting aging scored a Top 10 hit with "All This Time."
In 1993, Sting released the more upbeat Ten Summoner's Tales. It gave Sting two more Top 20 singles with "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You" and "Fields of Gold." By the end of 1993, "All for Love," a song he recorded with Rod Stewart and Bryan reached number one on the pop charts. There was now no denying - Sting was a bonnafide stud.
Mercury Falling was released in the spring of 1996. It was another platinum seller for Sting. Brand New Day followed in 1999 and in 2003, Sting released the gorgeous Sacred Love.
In October 2006, Sting released Songs from the Labyrinth.
On February 11, 2007, the earth almost stood still when Sting reunited with Copeland & Summers as The Police as they opened the 2007 Grammy Awards.
The Police Reunion Tour, followed.
