Sting and The Police: The Rhetoric of Stardom
Philip Norman, The Sunday Times, 1981
IT IS NOT Sting but his alter ego Gordon Sumner who opens the door of the smart Hampstead house, one hand restraining a large, black, comfortingly ugly dog. His band, the Police, have taken a break between world-conquering concert tours. For Sting, this evidently also means a rest from being the apotheosis of fashion.
