Back before The Police was one of the biggest selling bands of the ’80s, they played really seedy locations. One night the trio, played in area that had a lot of Brothels, but Sting couldn’t afford one to bring up to his hotel room. Therefore he imagined what it would be like to have a relationship with one and maybe even marry her. And that is the story behind their first huge hit Roxanne.
Talking about behinds, Sting also told Howard Stern what that weird sound and laughter is that you hear at the beginning of the tune. The singer thought the piano lid was down, but it wasn’t. So that his butt tickling, or should say, smashing the ivories.
I will hear that song in a whole new red light.
Have you ever wondered if Sting got stung by a bee? Well that is what Graham Norton wanted to know from The Police singer when he was on his show on Friday. Not only has be Sting been stung, he owns a dozen hives of the buggers at his Wilshire Estate.
For the most part they get along with the man that named himself after what they do, but one day there was a bee who feels the way about him as I do. That little fella flew up to Gordon Sumner and stung him on the crown of his head.
He said it was the “most exquisite pain. It was like a psychedelic experience and my whole brain went.” Then he added, “I haven’t been the same since.”
The incident happened about when he reunited with The Police, so I guess something good came out of it for us. In fact, it was also good for him because he revealed he wants to be stung again by one of those yellow and black creatures.
Back when Sting was with The Police, for the first time, he had a head full of stingers aka spiky hair. After he left the band, so did his hair and my admiration for him.
Therefore, I haven’t followed his career like I used to. So can someone tell me when he suddenly got a full head of hair again? Maybe, now that his locks are back, so will his ability to do the music of his I like. Kind of like how Samson got his power back when his hair grew back after Delilah cut it off. That did happen, right?
A 28 year old man from China, who has terminal cancer, wanted to get married before he dies, so he married a doll. According to The Mirror he wanted the big day and a photoshoot, but didn’t want to leave behind a grieving window. His solution was to marry a life-size doll.
Hopefully this will bring him some comfort in his final days.
Ever since I read the story, I have had The Police’s Be My Girl, Sally stuck in my head. If you’ve never heard the song written by Andy Summers, you can hear it below and you will understand why I do.
Sting was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon brought out the Ragtime Girls to sing one of his former band’s biggest songs, Roxanne. Whoever thought the classic song would work in that tempo, but it does.
BTW is just me or does Sting’s stupid bushy beard make him look more bald than he already is?
