The Ultimate edition of the truest account of The Police’s beginning and early days.
‘Do you know where you were on September 25, 1976? Maybe not, but I do.
I was a long-haired alien drummer touring the UK in a prog-rock band called Curved Air, and that night we were in Newcastle where I saw a local band called Last Exit.
I know that because I was taking notes every day in my now slightly dog-eared, pocket diaries. I noted that they were ‘great’ and that we had a party. In a later diary entry, after realizing that punk was the future, I remark on the day that I persuaded their bassist to move to London and join me in my own punk band.’
Illustrated throughout with original diary pages, commentary, hand-made poster designs and previously unseen images, this is Stewart Copeland’s personal story of the ‘starving years’ of the band who became one of the world’s biggest acts.
