The Police

The Police were one of the definitive rock groups of the 1970s and 1980s. They formed in London in 1977 and for most of their history consisted of Sting (nicknamed due his habit of wearing a yellow and black t-shirt), Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland. The group broke through at the same time that punk was shaking up the music scene in the late 1970s, playing a style of rock influenced by reggae, jazz and punk. The Police were indisputably the most adventurous leaders of the genre then known as New Wave.

Their first album Outlandos d'Amour, debuted in 1978 and reached no 6 in the UK with such hits as Roxanne and So Lonely. Their second album Reggata de Blanc, with the single Message in A Bottle, was the first of five consecutive number one albums. Finally in 1983, after a year long sabbatical, The Police released their final studio album Synchronicity. This achieved number one in both the UK & US and contained the hugely successful hit single Every Breath You Take. The album earned them three Grammy Awards. They split-up in 1986 but reunited in 2007 for a one-off world tour. They were the world's highest-earning musicians in 2008, thanks to their reunion tour
