Wikipedia : This day (October 2, 1951), in Wallsend, Northumberland, England, is born Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner a.k.a. Sting, English singer and songwriter, co-founder of The Police

Official Site : But the hip London music press saw through The Police’s punk camouflage and did little to disguise their contempt, and the band’s early releases had no chart success.

@allmusic : Lead singer and bassist for the Police who pursued a solo career distinguished by his sophisticated blend of jazz, pop, and world music.

@last.fm : He gained his nickname while with the Phoenix Jazzmen. He once performed wearing a black and yellow jersey with hooped stripes that bandleader Gordon Solomon had noted made him look like a bumblebee; thus Sumner became Sting.
