2- What did you do for living?
I'm a record dealer.

3- Sting or Police?
Both, but I still prefer THE POLICE. – Don't forget however Stewart & Andy. Especially Stewart has done some amazing work – to my mind he's very much underrated.

4- When did you start to collect Sting items and why?
I started back in 1979 when I was still very, very young. I received the "Message in a Bottle" 7" as a birthday present. That was the beginning and years later I have quite some stuff I think ;-)
Why I collect? Because man has been a hunter & collector for 10.000 years I think.

Basically everything. I still love 7" singles because that's what started this whole craziness. I also love any printed material (Presstuff, magazines, tourbooks, etc.)

Difficult to say – maybe my acetates, maybe something else – don't know really.

The Ghost In The Machine promo LP with light effects.

8- What is your best remember about Sting and/or collecting?
That I've met many very nice (and some really crazy…) people over the last decades. It was all a bit more intimate & friendly before the internet though.

9- How many time did you see sting/Police live?
Next question…

10- Your 5 favourites songs /your order of preference of the album?
Can't answer that either – changes every day
