    Had to miss the Synchronicity tour and always hoped they'd reunite. But I thought Sting had gotten too full of himself over the years for it to happen.

    I did NOT miss Synchronicity. Saw them in OKC at the Myriad. (UB40 opened.)

    Seeing what the Stones, Skynyrd, the Who (even with 2 members dead) and every other old band are raking in, the Police would be stupid businessmen NOT to reunite.

    F Yeah! I, too, missed Synchronicity on tour. Police are my second favorite band of all time (U2). Great stuff. Thanks for posting this, fop.

    Happy to help. Hope it comes off. I saw Sting say recently that he's grown bored with rock music. But hell, they were good at it. Stewart Copeland one of my favorite drummers of all time.

    I like The Police as well. But it's all about the Benjamins.

    Certainly a top 10 favorite of mine ... nice to see Stewart Copeland a little more willing. When The Police disbanded, Copeland and Mr. Sumner weren't on the best of terms.

    An all-time favorite lyrical excerpt ...

    "There's a king on a throne with his eyes torn out
    There's a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
    There's a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
    There's a skeleton choking on a crust of bread"

    The Police
    "King of Pain"
    "Synchronicity"
    1983

    Ah, great memories. Love that song, Sam Mills. :)

    Yeah, it is all about the Benjamins, but for the fans, it'll be worth it. I saw Sting in concert like 2 years ago, and he's still in great shape and can still go and work a show.

    And totally agree, Copeland is one of the best drummers I've ever heard, as well as an accomplished composer (arranger?). I'm stoked about this.

    Will Sting play the lute?

    Did he do that? I didn't even know that? I hope he does, then.

    "and every so-called meeting with his so-called superior is humiliating kick in the crotch."

    they don't write 'em like that any more.

    "many miles away . . . "

    No, they sure don't, Franklin. :)

    Stewart Copeland provided an awesome score to the incredibly underrated Rumble Fish. Really good stuff.

    If this comes off, one of my standard sayings will be rendered irrelevant: Everyone gets back together...except The Police.

    Oh wait! And Journey. Everyone gets back together...except the REAL Journey.
