How many rock bands can you name where every member of the band has published an autobiography?
Honestly, I'd like to know because I can't think of any other than my favorite band, The Police!
Between the years of 2003 and 2009, all four (yes four) members of The Police have released their autobiographies: Sting's "Broken Music" (2003), Andy Summers' "One Train Later" (2006), original guitarist Henry Padovani's "Secret Policeman" (French version 2006, English version 2009) and Stewart Copeland's "Strange Things Happen: A Life With The Police, Polo, And Pygmies" (2009).
For a fan of The Police, these books are all essential reading, providing each band member's unique viewpoint on their successes, struggles, fame and often tumultuous relationships. If you haven't checked out these autobiographies yet, or are perhaps wondering which one offers the best place to start, read on as I'll provide my reviews of each band member's memoir below.
