THE POLICE: EVERY LITTLE THING

BY CAROLINE & DAVID STAFFORD
10 August 2021

Caroline and David Stafford's wonderfully entertaining new music biography, THE POLICE: EVERY LITTLE THING - THE ADVENTURES OF STING, STEWART AND ANDY is published on 26th August by Omnibus Press. An American drummer, a bass player from Newcastle and a guitarist a decade older than the other two, with little in common other than their musical brilliance and towering ambition, formed one of the most successful bands in history. Covering the years 1977–1986 and the brief reincarnation in 2007–2008, acclaimed biographers Caroline and David Stafford chronicle the rise and fall of the Police. Much like Reservoir Dogs but without the light relief, it's a tale of jealousy, anger and attrition both on the road and in the studio. And yet, despite – or perhaps because of – the battles, these three musicians, Sting, Andy and Stewart, each supremely talented in his own right, together achieved a symbiosis that produced music of soaring magnificence.
