Andy Summers’ Police Update: “We’re All Completely Connected”

When I recently chatted with Police guitarist Andy Summers for Long Island Pulse, we touched upon quite a few topics, including his band new all-instrumental solo album, Metal Dog, as well as the must-see Police documentary, Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police.

But most interesting, was the following update regarding the future of the Police:

LI Pulse: Are you still on good terms with the other Police members?

Andy Summers: Yeah. I saw Stewart [Copeland] last week. There’s always stuff. The band, or “the brand,” continues forever. We always have to make some decision about something. The relationship doesn’t go away. Stewart lives close to me in LA; we’re more likely to see each other than Sting…I’m not sure where he is. But we’re all completely connected.

After having his articles posted from other outlets on Alternative Nation (and before that, Grunge Report) for years - heck, he was even interviewed by GR back in 2009! - Greg Prato finally began contributing articles to the site in 2014. He has written for various sites/mags over the years (Rollling Stone, All Music Guide, etc.), and is the author of quite a few books. And as evidenced by such titles as Grunge is Dead: The Oral History of Seattle Rock Music, A Devil on One Shoulder and an Angel on the Other: The Story of Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon, and Too High to Die: Meet the Meat Puppets, he also has a deep fondness for alternative rock n' roll music.
