it was amazing
Read in June, 2009

Gosh Gordy, you really had a rough life as a kid but who didn't in England after the war? Who would have imagined you grew up dragging milk cans to doors at dawn while smelling the salt air?

Actually a well written book with an unassuming tone of gratitude for fame and glory in the rock world. Sting comes across here as a regular bloke with a bent for family life. It was very interesting to read about his early years as a journeyman musician in the sea side dance halls and how hard he worked honing his chops. He does a pretty good job of hiding his dislike for Mr. Copeland, Police drummer, and doesn't dwell on the excesses of the road or ego matches. It was pleasant to read a rock memoir that focussed on music lore and local color instead of drug addled exploits.
