Car Con Carne

(Rejected episode headlines: “Next to Stew,” “Driven to Cheers”)


The legendary Stewart Copeland joins me for an interview in advance of his Chicago area performance of “Police Deranged for Orchestra” at the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan on May 19.


Discussed in this episode:

-Turning Police songs into orchestral arrangements.

-How to handle “lead singer” responsibilities for this tour.

-Is Stewart comfortable diving back into the past and Police history?

-The overall “massiveness” of the Police, circa “Synchronicity.”

-His New Age Grammy wins.

-What’s the current status of Oysterhead?
-We also go through a handful of Police songs to get his thoughts/gut reactions on each.

-We also settle the question of which Stewart Copeland 80s soundtrack collaboration is better: Adam Ant (Out of Bounds) or Stan Ridgway (Don't Box Me In).


Don’t miss Stewart Copeland on May 19. It’s a rare opportunity to see Stewart in that type of setting, let alone playing THOSE songs.
