ROX-ANNE!

YOU DON’T HAVE TO PUT ON THE RED LIGHT!

PUT ON THE RED LIGHT!
PUT ON THE RED LIGHT!
PUT ON THE RED LIGHT!
PUT ON THE RED LIGHT!
PUT ON THE RED LIGHT!

Anyway, yeah, the Police might be getting back together.

Quick survey, PopWatchers: Good Thing / Bad Thing?

(You must pick one. No hemming, no hawing. No “Maybe, but”s. I shall start.)

BAD THING BAD THING BAD THING.

It’s gonna be boring. And also sad. And the Stooges AND Genesis ANDmaybe Wham! beat them to it for 2007, not to mention the Pixies andDinosaur Jr. and … you see my point. And I know Sting (pictured, center) doesn’t needthe money, because even if he only sold 9 copies of the lute album, hestill managed to convince me to buy that “Fields of Gold” album back inthe ’90s and that took some doing, because that song makes me want toset things on fire, like fields. And if I bought it, consequently, everybody bought it, and so Sting ≠ needs the money.

So, is it Andy and Stewart’s fault?  Let’s see…

Ah, yes. There’s your hint, right in the article: “The British pressis a-twitter with rumors of a Police reunion in the wake of word thatrehearsal dates have been penciled in for the trio, presumably inFebruary prior to bassist/vocalist Sting’s upcoming European tour andafter drummer Stewart Copeland [pictured, right] completes his duties as a judge on theBBC-TV “singing with the stars”-style celebrity duets program “Just theTwo Of Us.” Guitarist Andy Summers [at left] recently published his memoir of histime with the Police, “One Train Later,” but doesn’t appear to have anyoutstanding commitments currently.”

Sigh.
