In North Vancouver, BC, The Police are rehearsing at Lion's Gate Studios in Studio 5! Yesterday on Classic Rock 101 (local CR station) people were calling in all morning with news of crews moving in acoustic soundproofers and large crates with the Sting and Police logos. There was also plenty of people carrying around mics and drums. Adding to the mystery, people (including myself) saw Sting himself at Whistler (ski mountain near Vancouver) miling around the Village and on the slopes.

Anybody have anymore to add or just wanna chat about The Police?

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Sting is such a prick, but the Police were good back in the day. Not sure I'd go and see them now though.

Derigiberble would win in a fight against any UGer, n00b or not, just because most people on the site can't help but love him/her.

ROOOOOOOOOOOOXANNE is probably the greatest karaoke song ever. Just as long as sting doesn't act like a douche, this could be interesting.


I think the real prick in the Police is Stewart Copeland. He's the one who doesnt quite get that he's the drummer not the frontman.

OKAY I HAVE BEEN TO LIONS GATE STUDIOS

Here's what went down:

I got there at 10:30am and guards took my camera during my stay. I managed to talk my way in because one of the stagehands and I found out we were old buddies in our April wine roadie days. Anyways I get to Studio 5 and I come face to face with Stewart Copeland! So I talked to him for awhile and whatnot and he and I exchanged emails and stuff because we really hit it off. And after all this the Police all got together and performed ****in' Don't Stand So Close to Me (my fav song by them) and they all signed my Synchoronicity album and I went on my way.

Amazing though eh?

Awesome. That's ****ing sweet.

And you were a roadie? Nice.

Haven't listened to much April Wine, though.


Yeah I was a roadie. Lots of Canadian bands had me on their crew. Listen to April Wine, you'd like them a lot I think.
