police.jpgIt all began on this day August 18, 1977 in a nightclub in Birmingham, England, when Stewart Copeland, Andy Summers and Gordon Sumner (Sting) played their first gig together.  I can remember it like it was yesterday, hearing The Police for the first time.  It wasn’t the heavy sound I was used to listening to but it had it’s own appeal.  That song Roxanne that is so famous and well known today really grabbed you right from the start, no pun intended.  It seemed as if it was the very next day that nearly every song on that first album (we talking vinyl baby) was being played on every radio station around.  MrBuzzAldrin has put together a pretty good video “A brief History” that can give you a few background tunes with a, well, A brief history.  enjoy!
