The Police live in Long Island 10 Oct 1979

13- what is your favourite tour and why?
I was lucky enough to see the Police in 1980. I think they were at the top in energy and playing, I think their best period was late 1979 - early 1980. They were bigger two years later when I saw them again, but they were "different" .

I don't know!

15- if it was not Sting, who would it be?

Someone else for sure, but do not know who!
