Re: Stewart Copeland
I can respect his body of work and his drumming, but as a person, I lost a lot of respect for Stewart Copeland when I saw him whip a stick as hard as he could backstage at someone during the show he was performing at the Modern Drummer Festival. He could have easily blinded someone in one eye with that action - it was so unthinking and so irresponsible, no matter what might have been going on with the sound or his monitor mix. He came off like a real horse's patoot that day.
I've often heard people talk about how they analyze someone's sound and style, often times for long periods of time. I'm not quite sure how I feel about that. Stewart Copeland plays the way he does because he's Stewart Copeland, and he probably doesn't think about it too hard - he plays it the way he feels it.
I do have to admit though that I really dig his feel and sound from the earlier Police recordings.
Your = possessive - your stuff, your dog, your car, etc
You're = you are - a contraction.
