The Police rock. So why did Sting become such a p**sy?
Hahaha. He's still great, just doing different stuff now. I don't like everything he puts out these days, but he's still extremely talented and not afraid to change. I respect that.

I was always a big sting fan, and my girlfriend got me his autobiography for christmas. What I gather is that he never really liked a lot of stuff that the police did, but he needed to suceed, he had a family that was living in near poverty.

He's "Nothing Like the Sun..." album is a favorite of mine.
