Maybe it's because Sting is a pretentious twat, I can't argue with that. But at least when he was in this band he was a fantastic songwriter, and a very underrated bass player. Actually maybe that's why they aren't considered as hip as their new wave peers, they were classically trained musicians with a background in jazz and prog...

Oh for crying out loud that was a long time ago, opinions can change, get over it.

Actually I never knocked him as a bass player, I said that he and Michael Anthony were equal in abillity but looking back on that I think that statement was very very wrong after having heard more of Sting's material with The Police.

I just wanted you to know that I read it, and I saw it, and there was some fury.

Also, you're welcome.

Sting's a decent bass player. Not great or anything.

Are you just saying that now because you know it'll piss Big3 off?

I think he's an excellent bass player, I've learned that just because he doesnt play like Geddy Lee means he's lacking in the skill department

Do you judge every band you like on a musical dexterity level? It's not a criticism at all. I have just found that the actual musicianship seems to overide all other aspects of your love of a band when I find it one of the LEAST important things in music.

However if you do love music from this view point then you should really widen your net and check out many bands who are great musicians who just happen to play more commercial music and/or make great tunes outside of a Rock scenario.

You should be kissing this guys boots

Well I've said prior, we're all free to be wrong.

Sting knows, and has always known, what not to play. As a Bass player he knows where he's needed and he's not worried about his penis shrinking if he doesn't get a solo.

Sting's someone, to me, who's always managed to hear and be in the groove. I get the idea that he doesn't care what instrument he's playing.
