I see it as a whole, great musicians came together to make great music. The Police was Andy, Stewart and Sting and would not have been what is was/is any other way - one of the biggest bands ever!
My girlfriend just bought me the Synchronicity Concert Dvd for my birthday and I'm loving it (and her of course.) I just dig the way Copeland looks high and hyperactive on that kit!
