Strange Things Happen: A Life with the Police, Polo, and Pygmies

Stewart Copeland


When Stewart Copeland gets dressed, he has an identity crisis. Should he put on “leather pants, hostile shirts and pointy shoes”? Or wear something more appropriate to the “tax-paying, property-owning, investment-holding lotus eater” his success has allowed him to become? This dilemma is at the heart of Copeland′s vastly entertaining memoir-in-stories-that-could-be-told-over-a-meal, STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN. The world knows Copeland as the drummer for The Police, one of the most successful bands in rock history. But they may not know as much about his childhood in the Middle East as the son of an agent for the CIA. Or his film-making adventures with the Pygmies in the deepest Congo. Or his passion for polo (“Brideshead Revisited on horses”). STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN moves from Copeland′s remarkable childhood through the formation of The Police and their rise to stardom, to the aristocratic life that followed, and finally behind the scenes of The Police′s extraordinarily successful reunion tour. It′s a book of amazing anecdotes, all completely true, that take us backstage of a life fully lived. (And yes, there are chapters about Sting, too.)
