Talking of the break-up of the band to Rolling Stone in 2007, Sting said,
We didn’t have a great deal in common, We were different generations, in Andy’s case, welded together by a flag of convenience . . . Part of the frustration was that Stewart and Andy were driven to write. It’s difficult to tell somebody it’s not a good song, and it was usually me.
As a band, the police gave successful songs like Don’t Stand So Close To Me, Every Little Thing She Does is Magic, Roxanne, and of course, Every Breath You Take.
