Tags: Sting

The man who provided Marto (and most of us) with the soundtrack to his twenties, Police frontman and iconic rocker, Sting caught up with Triple M to talk his Aussie visit and new album, 57th & 9th. 

He revealed he celebrated his Birthday alone on Sunday, following a night headlining the AFL Grand Final. 

"I was Johnny No-Mates – I was completely on my own, so I got a bit reflective.”

 “I went out and had a nice meal, I was so jetlagged, so it was nice to have some down time.”

 Refecting on a year of loss of icons in the entertainment world, Marto asked Sting of the passing of a close friend to the musician, Alan Rickman.

 “Does it make ever you think, do you ever stop and reflect…?” Marto asked. 

 “Of course I do, I was 65 on Sunday, you could say I’ve probably lived most of my life already .. that’s not being depressed about it," Sting said. 

 “It enriches life by accepting that it could end…”

Refecting on a year of loss of icons in the entertainment world Marto asked Sting of the passing of a close friend to the musician, Alan Rickman.

Marto touches on just how enormous Sting got with the Police, “Was there more pressure then?”

 “I quite like pressure, I like work, I like the challenge of work, that doesn’t go away. “

“I don’t mind it, I don’t mind fame, I don’t take it that seriously…

"I lead a citizens life and I’m free to walk around as I like.”

 What impresses him?

"I’m impressed by my kids, their extraordinary human beings," he said.

"I’ve got 6 of them, three boys thee girls."

"They’re exceptional beings."
