艺人资料
1977年在英国伦敦成立的三人摇滚乐队,七十年代风靡英国、欧洲的乐队之一。由主唱史汀、鼓手科普兰和吉他手萨默斯组成,曾六次获格莱美奖。到现在他们的主唱史汀仍然是格莱美的常客。
1977年,他们录制了第1首受朋克音乐影响的单曲《fall out》,该曲是由科普兰的兄弟milecopelandeland的illegal唱片公司发行的,mile copeland还是该乐队的经理人。1978年初,“警察”与a&m公司签约,并于4月份报出了单曲《roxanne》,这首歌首次展现了他们创新性的雷鬼节奏的奇特摇滚。直到1年后,该曲进入美国排行榜前40名,才使“警察”在英国榜上起飞。
1978年秋,专辑《outlandos’ amout》出版,并慢慢地爬上了英国排行榜的前10名,美国排行榜的前30名。 1979年,《regatta de blanc》出版,单曲《message in a bottle》成为英国榜的冠军,这首歌确立了乐队在英国、欧洲的明星地位。其销量在世界范围内令人吃惊,并且获得各个不同层次的听众——sting英俊的容貌和乐队精湛的技艺不但吸引了青少年听众,而且还获得了严肃摇滚唱片的购买者的首肯。之后他们到泰国、印度、墨西哥、希腊、埃及等国家巡回演出,非常受欢迎。在两个专辑发行之间的空隙里,他们还致力于个人发展,尤以sting在电影quadrophenia和《打开收音机》中扮演的角色最为成功。1980年秋,《zenyatta mondatta》出版,这张专辑给他们在北美地区带来了突破,在美国、加拿大都进入了排行榜的前10名。在英国,专辑在排行榜冠军的位置停留了4个星期。《don’t stand so close to me》成为英国排行榜第2首冠军歌曲,在美国也是第2首进入排行榜前10名的单曲。随后另一首单曲《de do do do de da da da》同样进入前10名。在美国麦迪逊广场花园举行了一场成功的音乐会之后,他们回到录音棚录制了一张电影音乐专辑《ghost in the machine》,出版后立即成为热门唱片,获英国榜冠军,美国榜亚军。单曲《every little thing she does is magic》在美国成为热门歌曲。
在他们1980-1981年旋风般地获得成功之后,他们获得不列颠音乐大奖中的“最佳英国组合”和3项格莱美奖。之后乐队的成员都开始了各自的计划,1982年,andy summers与fripp robert录制了一张实验专辑《i advance masked》;同年,sting在别处大出风头,参加了“大赦国际”音乐会,并在电影《硫磺和糖浆》中饰一角色,sting也为电影录制一首单曲《spread a little happiness》;stewartcopeland也与francis ford coppola、gabriel peter等人合作。这导致了“警察”乐队的下一个专辑《synchronicity》直到1983年中期才出版,该专辑受到音乐出版界及舆论的藐视,但却获得英美两国排行榜的冠军,而且它在世界范围内的销量都异常可观,均获得多白金的销量。其中还包括两首最好的国际热门单曲《every breath you take》和《wrapped around your finger》。
此后,乐队处于解体边缘,从他们第5张专辑后,这个3人乐队没有录制过任何作品,每个人都进行了个人探险,stewartcopeland拍了一部电影,录了一个专辑,都命名为《rhythmist》,sting则在更多的电影中出现,录制了深受爵士乐影响的国际热门专辑《dream of the blue turtles》。
1986年,乐队宣布解体。sting的现场演出双唱片《bring on the night》发行。1987年,sting的新唱片《nothing like the sun》出版。在这张专辑中,sting特邀两位非常著名的吉他手eric clapton 和“dire straits”乐队mark knopfler担任伴奏。sting在这张专辑翻唱了hendrix jimi的名曲制《little wing》。另外.“警察”乐队原来的作品被收集成一张选集《every breath you take:the singles》出版,并成为英国排行榜的冠军。
1992年9月发行精选集《Greatest Hits》。
1993年9月发行精选集《Message in a Box》。
1995年5月发行现场专辑《Live!》。9月发行精选集《Every Breath You Take: The Classics》。
2007年初宣布乐队将重新合体,然而最终还是解散了。6月发行精选集《The Police》。
2008年8月举行了告别演唱会,11月发行现场专辑《Certifiable》。
The Police were an English rock band formed in London in 1977. For the majority of their history, the band consisted of Sting (lead vocals, bass guitar, primary songwriter), Andy Summers (guitar) and Stewart Copeland (drums, percussion). The Police became globally popular in the late 1970s and are generally regarded as one of the first new wave groups to achieve mainstream success, playing a style of rock influenced by punk, reggae, and jazz. They are also considered one of the leaders of the Second British Invasion of the U.S.They disbanded in 1986, but reunited in early 2007 for a one-off world tour that ended in August 2008.
Their 1978 debut album, ‘Outlandos d'Amour’, reached No. 6 in the UK, and their second album ‘Reggatta de Blanc’ became the first of five consecutive UK No. 1 albums. ‘Synchronicity’ from 1983 was No. 1 in both the UK and U.S., selling over 8 million copies in the U.S. alone. The Police have sold over 75 million records, making them one of the world's best-selling artists of all time.They were the world's highest-earning musicians in 2008, thanks to their reunion tour.
The band has won a number of music awards, including six Grammy Awards, two Brit Awards—winning Best British Group once, an MTV Video Music Award, and in 2003 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Four of their five studio albums appeared on ‘Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The Police were included among both ‘Rolling Stone's and VH1's lists of the ‘100 Greatest Artists of All Time’.
In early 2007, reports surfaced that the trio would reunite for a tour to mark the Police's 30th anniversary, more than 20 years since their split in 1986.On 22 January 2007, the punk wave magazine ‘Side-Line’ broke the story that the Police would reunite for the Grammys, and would perform ‘Roxanne’.The band opened the 49th Annual Grammy Awards on 11 February 2007 in Los Angeles.
The group were headliners at the TW Classic festival in Werchter, Belgium on 7 June 2008. The Police also headlined the last night of the 2008 Isle of Wight Festival on 15 June 2008.The final show of the tour was held on 7 August 2008 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.On 11 November 2008, the Police released ‘Certifiable: Live in Buenos Aires’, a Blu-ray, DVD and CD set of the band's two performances in Buenos Aires, Argentina on the tour (December 1 and 2, 2007). Those sets with two DVDs also included a documentary shot by Copeland's son Jordan entitled ‘Better Than Therapy’ as well as some photographs of Buenos Aires taken by Andy Summers.
