TIMELINE

Stingbutton.gif (123 bytes) Sting was born as Gordon Matthew Sumner on October 2, 1951 in England. Sting first became a music icon during his years as lead singer of The Police.

Sting - Bring On The Blue Turtlesbutton.gif (123 bytes) Sting's debut solo LP, The Dream Of The Blue Turtles, was released. With his debut, it was apparent that Sting had left most alternative influences in the background and focused more on his jazz-influences. The title of the LP came from a dream Sting had about blue turtles (which represented chaos) destroying his garden. The LP yielded Sting's first solo Top 3 hit: "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free" (debuting in June) followed by the hits, "Fortress Around Your Heart" "Love Is The Seventh Wave," and "Russians." Sting may have lost some of his Police following, but he began gaining new audiences through music that was still accessible to pop audiences, and had enough lyrical content to keep critics pleased.
