Strange Things Happen (Paperback)
When Stewart Copeland gets dressed, he has an identity crisis. Should he put on "leather pants, hostile shirts, and pointy shoes"? Or wear something more appropriate to the "tax-paying, property-owning, investment-holding lotus eater" his success has allowed him to become? This dilemma is at the heart of Copeland's memoir. The world knows him as the drummer for The Police, one of the most successful bands in rock history. But they may not know about his childhood in the Middle East as the son of a CIA agent. Or be aware of his film-making adventures with the Pygmies in the deepest reaches of the Congo, and his passion for polo. Here we move from Copeland's remarkable childhood to the formation of The Police, their rise to stardom, and the settled-down life that followed. It's a book of amazing anecdotes, all completely true, which take us backstage in a life that is fully lived.
