Sting’s early life was dominated by a shipyard—and he dreamed of nothing more than escaping the industrial drudgery. But after a nasty bout of writer’s block that stretched on for years, Sting found himself channeling the stories of the shipyard workers he knew in his youth for song material. In a lyrical, confessional talk, Sting treats us to songs from his upcoming musical, and to an encore of “Message in a Bottle.”

Shamelessly self-important, egotistical braggart. Horribly conceited and a bloody awful lyricist. The Last Ship was expectedly mawkish, clichéd and vomit-inducingly sentimental.
Absolutely dire. Apparently he plans on releasing more music. I can't wait to not buy it.

Same music still comes out of England. Check out the Singing Loins for a more modern take on Sting's origins.

Deeply indulgent bullshit – the boy never held a rivet, saw a rivet or knew how a rivet might have been. He never saw the inside of a shipyard. ALL bullshit from a middle class onlooker wishing he had as much experience.

Bloody Brilliant . Everything you have ever done is spiritual Sting. Connecting people to California is just as healing as reconnecting people to local communities . Some people need local community connection, some people have very damaged ego states and need positive reconnection to their global desert rose because of abuse issues.xx

I just love him. He has given us so many good songs and I hope his beautiful family perpetuates his legacy (he's a teacher so, that might be the case, I hope).
I hope also that this story of his life encourages many that are stuck somewhere they want to be away from. With hard work a better life is possible and this stories are the fuel we need to keep on fighting.

The pure joy of finding the right combination of words, the right syllables as they roll off the tongue, flowing gracefully atop the right chord progression, to tell the tale as a painter with strings, is a most captivating art and discipline. He transported us to his childhood and put us on that shipyard. You could almost smell the brine in the air and hear the roar of the chains, the crack of the timber, the mountain of steel headed out to sea. Absolutely brilliant.

I think ships became unnatural as soon as they stopped being made from wood, and especially when cranked out for war. Too many jobs are tedious & toxic and nobody ought to be forced into that life. The Chris Rea song "Steel River" follows a similar concept; see the cynical line about salmon returning to the river.

Sting…please just stop…put the guitar down, or put it up on eBay. "Everything You Do Just Sounds Like Muzak."
