Sting says he doesn’t think “any grown man can be in a band”

has said that he doesnt think any grown man can be in a band because its a teenage gang thing. Speaking in a new interview the former Police frontman talked about aging out of rock music and how he struggles to find growth in music made by veteran bands. I dont think any grown man can be in a band actually Sting told MOJO via Tone Deaf. A band is a teenage gang. Who wants to be in a teenage gang when youre knocking 70 It doesnt allow you to evolve.

He continued You have to obey the rules and the gestalt of the band. As much as I love the Stones and ACDC its hard to see growth in their music. For me the band was merely a vehicle for the songs and not the other way round. Stings comments ironically come after he spent six years in The Police from 1977 until 1983 – when he was 26 until he was 32. He released his first solo album The Dream Of The Blue Turtles in 1985 which was wellreceived. However if his solo release had proved unsuccessful he explained he hopes he wouldnt have returned to the band.

Both Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland had made albums without me so it was my right too he explained. I recruited a band from the jazz world and I was lucky it was a hit. I have no idea what would have happened if it hadnt been a hit.
He added Would I have gone back to the band and eaten humble pie I hope not. Earlier this year The agreement covers all Stings solo songs including the likes of Shape Of My Heart Fields Of Gold and Englishman In New York. The deal also extends to the songs Sting wrote for The Police such as Roxanne Every Breath You Take and Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic.
