When you say the name Andy Summers, most people think of The Police, one of the most successful rock groups of all time and through whom Summers would help define and refine the rock-guitar sound.
But as Summers tells The Current's Steve Seel, he's not one to trade on the past. In the decades since the Police, Summers has continued to make music, and has even parlayed his creative energies into writing and photography.
Now, Summers together with singer and multi-instrumentalist Rob Giles has launched a new band called Circa Zero.
Steve Seel talks to Summers and Giles about Circa Zero including the rather humorous circumstances under which their debut album, Circus Hero, got its title.
- Music Memory: The Police, 'Canary in a Coalmine' The next in our series of musical reminiscences comes from LIsa Heyman of St. Paul, Minn., whose story includes a funny mondegreen related to a track by the Police.
- Random Vinyl: The Police - Ghost in the Machine (1981) The album art widely recognized as being significant in the history of record covers. It's a seven-segment display (like you'd see on your alarm clock) representing Andy Summers, Sting and Stewart Copeland.
