1 ThePolecats 1 year ago Even though not too much of a Sting fan as a solo artist and I much prefer The Police, I thought I'd post this video. Everyone knows this song but it's worth posting as it's an awesome song and kicked off his very successful solo career. He was huge as a solo artist in the '80s and '90s. Was listening to Jonsey's Jukebox, and Jones was mentioning how the 80s was the decade that solo artist were big and that's true, Sting is just one example as well as Phil Collins.This song was recorded before he got his sideman and guitarist named Dominic Miller. Never saw Sting in concert as a solo artist but saw him with The Police as they reformed in 2009. That was an amazing concert and String and the boys were in top form. I saw Andy Summers as a solo artist at the Baked Potato in Studio City (or is it Universal City) a few years prior so it was a treat to see him twice as a solo artist and as a Police.
