And Now for Something Completely Different
Police drummer Stewart Copeland has been fired from his job as the Police’s official blogger after making fun of Sting in a post.
Guitarist Andy Summers said that he and Sting were not happy with Copeland opining about the band’s early shows, saying they were “totally at sea” and that Sting was a “petulant pansy“.Now, I don’t know if the at sea comment was a message in a bottle, but as far as the petulant pansy remark is concerned I wonder if the Stones might have the same opinion of Mick Jagger? Hah! Source.True story… back in the 80s I was managing and producing R&R bands in TO. One summer’s evening after band practice we were discussing about going over to a local pub to see a new band. They called themselves the “Police”.
I responded by mocking “they will never go anywhere with a dumb name like that“. I guess history has proven otherwise. Maybe that’s why I’m no longer in the music business.
