The Police are good.....Copeland has a very unique sound, I dont know how to describe it and I dont know if this word really fits when describing drumming, but he has a very distinct inflection - how he makes different hits vary throughout the song, his intensity flows really well throught the song especially live. Hes really good, but Neil is better. Overall as a musical catalog, to me its not even close, and I really do like The Police

I just never got it. I always thought they were just above me. Not unlike Dylan I suppose...

they're just.........boring  And sting's faux Jamaican accent is just so damn annoying.

I'm a drummer, and I understand what you're saying about Copeland, definitely.

I'll probably get run off the forum for good for this one but anyway....

The Police is one of the many bands I loved in the early eighties, and one of the reasons why I never paid much attention to Rush.

So, I had to answer honestly.  Back then, for me (and I emphasize for me), Rush couldn't compete for very long up against other bands.

Is that what it is?  :lol:   I agree he's a real fanboy of himself, and I couldn't stand their fan base of teenybopper little boys and girls, but The Police were talented, and I did love their music.

I would just call it the particular way that he swings- syncopation that is much closer to jazz drumming, rather than rock.

He's really good, but Neil is better.

I agree with that, too.

The man had everything.  Not many people do.  He had it all - looks - talent - and oodles of money.

Sting always makes me think that, had he not been a musician, he could instead have been a murderous barber.

Just a vibe I get...

Ah, Segue- you just brought back a very precious memory for me. (And no, it doesn't have anything to do with Sting, actually). Bravo!

He was a teacher before he became famous.  That's probably where he got the lyrics for Don't Stand So Close To Me.   :lol:
