The Police

The Police is a British rock band from London, England. He comes from the new wave and post-punk generation, and is trained by the British Sting on vocals and bass, the American Stewart Copeland on drums and the British Andy Summers on electric guitar who quickly replaced the French Henry Padovani in 1977. The band was very popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s thanks to their rock music, mixing jazz>, punk> and reggae. The band is best known for its titles Roxanne, So Lonely, Message in a Bottle, Walking on the Moon, Don't Stand So Close to Me, Can't Stand Losing You and Every Breath You Take. The Police is ranked number 70 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. The trio ceased all joint activity after the series of concerts given in 1983-1984 following the release of their last album, Synchronicity, which met with great international success, and was only briefly released in 1986, then for a major world tour in 2007-2008. The band was formed at the end of December 1976, following the meeting between Stewart Copeland, former drummer of the progressive rock band Curved Air and Henry Padovani, a young French guitarist who had just arrived in London, and their common desire to join the punk scene, then in full swing. Copeland already has the band's name, The Police, an international word that probably refers to his father, head of the CIA's Political Action Staff, but he is missing a bass player. Copeland thinks of Sting (Gordon Matthew Sumner by his real name), whom he spotted on December 23, 1976 at a concert of Nothing Achieving, which were released as a single in May 1977 in auto production on the label
