Sting, Police Reunite

Oh, wait, that's not the Police. Pretty close though. Here's the real video.

"Jazz odyssey." That resonated with me because I was just talking about the Police getting back together, and I offered my opinion that they were great in their heydey, but I had a feeling Sting would insist on working in all that bad jazz crap people pretended to like on Dream of the Blue Turtles.

I am prophetic.

Actually, it's not that bad. If they have to throw Sting a minute of scatting with oboe accompaniment in the middle of every song, fine, as long as they don't botch the rest of So Lonely.

"We Never Hated Eachother:" So says Stewart Copeland. I don't believe him.

His bandmates kidded about Sting's demanding personality.

"We refer to Sting as our dear leader," Copeland said.

"On a good day," Summers added.

They insisted the disputes that broke them up were artistic, not personal.

"The nature of the arguments were all about music . also hairstyles," Sting joked.

Copeland weighed in more earnestly.

"We never hated each other," Copeland said. "We fought tooth and nails over the music, but as human beings, we always liked each other."

How could you not hate him? He's a dick. He broke up the band because he didn't like the idea that you were equals and partners and wouldn't let him "expand the vocabulary of rock music" with crap like this:

So he hired a bunch of sessions musician who had to listen to him.

Regrouping with his old bandmates has been very healing, Sting said.

"There is a part of my life that I've sort of run away from for 25 years, but it's a very important part of my life, so to come back and be in the band and develop these relationships again we're more wise than we used to be," Sting said.

"Healing." Uggghh.

But this is funny:

While all are regarded as consummate musicians, the decades away from their old material was evident Monday as the band struggled at times, with humor, to get through some of the tunes.

At one point during "I Can't Stand Losing You," Sting who was reading his own lyrics said: "It's all coming back to me. I'm 24 and I'm mad."

Good news:

The group plans to stick to Police material and not include Sting's [three] solo hits.

I tossed that "three" in there myself.

Thanks to yls.
