UK retail price: £16.99

Forming when punk was starting to become a force, The Police – led by drummer Stuart Copeland and singer/bassist Sting - used this emerging new form of music to create a sound that was both fresh, energetic and sophisticated. An early incarnation with guitarist Henry Padovani ended when Andy Summers joined the band, and under the innovative management of Miles Copeland, The Police took on the world.

From 1978 to 1983, the band released five magnificent albums that took in rock, reggae, and world music. A succession of massive hit singles, including ‘Message In A Bottle’ and the classic and often misunderstood ‘Every Breath You Take’ also cemented their success. By 1983, they’d become arguably the biggest band in the world, but egos and arguments took their toll, and the group split in 1986. Sting would go on to massive solo success, but a reunion tour in the 2000s broke box office records and finally closed the door on the band.

This book details every song and album from the first single to the last, making it a comprehensive guide to the music of one of the greatest bands in music history, with sales of over 100 million worldwide.
