Sting

Gives Talk

Sting gives a presentation on the early life he spent in a shipyard and the way it would eventually come to influence his music as he found inspiration in the lives of his fellow shipyard workers. He also talks about his upcoming Broadway musical and presents several selections from the work.

The fact is, whether you’re a rock star or whether you’re a welder in a shipyard, or a tribesman in the upper Amazon, or the queen of England, at the end of the day, we’re all in the same boat.

Sting interview

The Guardian interviews Sting about if he cares what people think of him or not.

In some ways I consider it an advantage to know how other people view you. You’re under no illusions about how you’re thought of. You have to strike a balance: there’s people who can’t stand the sight of you, there’s people who really love you and obviously the truth is somewhere in the middle. That’s the passage I’m navigating. I don’t get unduly hurt. I might get a bit crazy.

Sting gives an interview on The Arsenio Hall Show in Los Angeles, California. They talk about how he learned how to play, his favorite artists and when he discovered Jimi Hendrix.

He was the first black guy that I saw in person, he was like huge. He was six foot tall. He had an Afro. He was dressed like something from another planet. He was left handed. That was an amazing experience.
