Stewart is as responsible for the Police's sound as anyone.
Or maybe Stewart was the primary arranger
Which is to say that arguably Copeland and Summers were the the annoying siblings who called him on his egotistical bullshit often enough that he could sit down and filter things down into great three-minute tunes.
That's right - on Police records, the drums are really fucking LOUD. (...) But to say that Stewart was merely a sideman to Sting and his writing abilities, I'd say that that's a fairly baseless position.
I played drums for years
Because Sting's a raging egomaniac who decided to surround himself with the musical equivalent of "Yes Men" after he left The Police?
after all, genius
by the way, i'm a guitarist, not a drummer and it's my opinion that copeland's the best musician in that band
he was mixed loud, you mean ... shows what YOU know
you don't have a point
you needed to know that it's not just drummers that hold copeland in high esteem
you said he played loud ... own your words
Synchronicity II = one of the best songs ever written
The Police get props for putting out two excellent records (though I hold the Cars'* first two in even higher regard)
who the hell would pay to see The Who perform in 2006? Why? I saw them in 1981
