This week in Studio 360, Kurt talked with drummer and composer Stewart Copeland. Copeland became famous in the early 80s as the drummer for the band, The Police. However, The Police were never, in Copeland's own words, 'a warm, cuddly band like U2.
The band broke up in 1984, but Copeland went on to make quite a name for himself as a film composer. He earned a Golden Globe nomination on his very first score for Francis Ford Coppola’s 'Rumblefish,' and went on to create soundtracks for over twenty films, including 'Talk Radio,' 'Wall Street,' and 'The Pallbearer.' In this bit of tape from the cutting room floor, Copeland tells Kurt about going from The Police “where we beat each other up” to the “creative bliss of being the only musician in the room.”
