9780810884908: Sting and the Police: Walking in Their Footsteps

During the 1980s, when pop icons like Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, and U2 reigned supreme, many regarded The Police as the biggest band in the world. Yet after only five albums-and at the peak of their popularity-The Police disbanded, and Sting began a solo career that made him a global pop star. Today, artists from Diddy to Gwen Stefani credit The Police and Sting as major influences on their own work-reflecting that The Police was not only a popular, polished rock act, but a powerfully influential one, too. In Sting and The Police: Walking in Their Footsteps, Aaron J. West explores the cultural and musical impact of Stewart Copeland, Andy Summers, and Sting. West details the distinctive hybrid character of The Police's musical output, which would also characterize Sting's post-Police development as a musician. Sting's long-lived solo career embodies the power of the artful appropriation of musical styles, while capitalizing on the modern realities of pop music consumption. The Police, and Sting in particular, were pioneers in music video, modern label marketing, global activism, and the internationalization of pop music in their embrace of punk, reggae, and world music. Sting and The Police: Walking in Their Footsteps will interest more than just fans. By placing the band within its various musical, cultural, commercial, and historic contexts, Sting and The Police: Walking in Their Footsteps will appeal to anyone interested in global popular culture.
