Crimes against music, I heard.

Copeland is an award winning sound track composer!

And Summers has done some pleasant jazzy stuff and some noodley bollicks with Fripp - nothing you really need to trouble yourself with but hardly cross Minsk.

(Edit - that should have read criminal :))

Both have written entertaining memoires.

I like that whole album - it’s a beauty. I really like Copeland’s Klark Kent stuff too. The lyrics are pretty stupid but I think they’re supposed to be. Looking back at it now it seems like Jumpy good natured Dad rock. Right up my alley.

Grrr.

My humorous copycat thread about Sting being charged with crimes and having the police after him has been derailed into a real thread about the members of The Police and their post-band careers.

:evil:

That Copeland / Ridgway track is indeed great; from one of my favourite Coppola movie, Rumblefish. Neat Tom Waits cameo!

I L-U-V love that stuff!

The "Collected Works" CD has an unreleased song or two that are quite good!
