Sting

Born Gordon Sumner in 1951, Sting helped make the Police one of the most vital bands of the late ’70s and early ’80s, combining jazz, pop, rock, prog, reggae and punk for a sound that was decidedly their own. By 1985, the Police were history and Sting launched a solo career that scored a No. 3 single (‘If You Love Somebody Set Them Free’) and a No. 2 album (‘The Dream of the Blue Turtles’) right off the bat. He’s since reached the Top 10 many more times over the next two decades, including singing on Dire Straits’ massive hit ‘Money for Nothing.’ His records have followed the Police’s course of challenging, genre-hopping music. After starring in movies like ‘Quadrophenia’ and ‘Dune’ over the years, Sting — who got his nickname from the yellow and black bee-like jersey he wore — wrote a Broadway musical, ‘The Last Ship’ in 2013.
