01Two Englishmen In New York20111114

As he reaches sixty, Sting looks back over a solo career spanning twenty-five years. Johnnie Walker travels to New York to sit down with an Englishman who penned an ode to staying true to one's identity in the world's most iconic city.

The musical superstar is in a philosophical mood as he talks to Johnnie about forty years in the music business, focusing largely on his solo career after the break-up of the hugely successful group The Police in 1984. He's recently released a definitive box set collection, celebrating 25 years as a solo artist, and is in the middle of another world tour, called fittingly for The Police's former bass guitarist, Back to Bass.

As a solo artist Sting has had 21 UK Top 40 hits, picked up eleven Grammy Awards and put out ten studio albums, featuring much loved hits from Englishman In New York to Fields of Gold. He's experimented with styles and sounds from jazz to bossa nova to country and gospel, and recorded successful collaborations with the likes of Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams and Mary J Blige.

To a soundtrack of Sting's often very personal solo tracks, Johnnie talks to Sting about his family life; his long-lasting relationship with his wife Trudie Styler; and his passion for his charity work, from The Rainforest Foundation to Amnesty International.
