Early years and success with The Police
Alexandria, Virginia born Stewart Armstrong Copeland grew up in the Middle East, mainly between Cairo and Lebanon where he would discover a passion for drumming and was encouraged by his father who once played in The Glenn Miller Band to pursue his love for drums which he did enthusiastically especially after the family moved to London during the late 1960s. His first big break came as a substitute drummer for the group Curved Air with whom he would record two albums including "Midnight Wire" in 1975-76. A year later he would form his own group called The Police. Sting, Andy Summers and Stanley Clarke are other famous musicians who have played and recorded with Stewart Copeland. Between 1977 and 1986, The Police would sell over 75 million albums and win several Grammy awards, helping to establish Copeland as one of the premier drummers of the rock era but lesser known is the fact that his musical score for the film "Rumble Fish" earned him a Golden Globe nomination in 1983.

Enjoy Stewart Copeland's innovative drumming style live
Widely regarded as one of the greatest drummers of the history of music, Stewart Copeland's style has many influences starting with Mitch Mitchell and Sandy Baker and seasoned by his time spent in the Middle East and a sojourn in Africa where he would produce a docufilm about the origins of rhythm. Even his exemplary work on the Rumble Fish score reveals much about his innovative approach to percussion and sound and he singlehandedly revived the use of the splash cymbal in popular music during his tenure with The Police and even pioneered other variations of the kit. Proficiency in the use of the high-hat is a technique ably demonstrated on classics such as "Message in a Bottle" which is a virtual masterclass in the use of cymbals as is "Walking on the Moon" and he is equally adept at the art of syncopation and if you really wish to sample this technician at work then watch his Drum Solo from The David Letterman Show in 2011.
