Timeless and Timely: The Police

What a way to start a Friday.  Paris, France.  1977.  This very day.

Strontium 90 took the stage in Paris.  Oh, wow.  Sensational update, INLE!  That seems relatively mundane and not worth mentioning.  Perhaps.  Except that in Strontium 90, playing for the first time together, were Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland.

We’d later know and love them as The Police.  While they didn’t eventually get along too well, they managed to make some excellent music.  We touched on music that sticks with you as a youngster earlier in the week.  The Police were definitely one of those, too.

For now, we’ll keep it short since we’ve got more coming later today.  

The Police. Thanks, May 28 + Strontium 90.
