"'I Burn For You' was written in 1975 in my classroom during a maths lesson. I was in a band that had a weekly residency in a pub in Newcastle. The same people would come every week, so the demand for new songs was acute and the only available time to write was after I'd set my pupils long tests which kept them quiet and allowed me the relative solitude I needed to cobble together lines and music."

Power-couple Trudie Styler and Sting led a star-packed line-up at the three-hour event held Thursday at New York's Carnegie Hall. It's serious business trying to save the world's rainforests. But the annual Rainforest Fund benefit concert series meant to raise funds for the cause long ago learned the value of keeping things light. For the 25th year, power-couple Trudie Styler and Sting led a star-packed line-up at Carnegie Hall - the latest of which included Paul Simon, James Taylor, Dionne Warwick, Stephen Stills, Renee Fleming and more. At the three hour event, held Thursday, nary a twig of the rainforest was mentioned, outside a tidy speech at the mid-way point by Styler, outfitted in a chic white, floor-length gown...
When Bill Clinton walked on stage last night I don't know who looked more surprised, Sting or wife Trudie Styler. There was such uncertainty that Clinton would come, let alone give a talk to the star studded Carnegie Hall audience for the Rainforest Foundation's 25th anniversary, that he was never announced. And no mention of him was made all afternoon during rehearsals. But Clinton did show up, just at the end of Act 1, in the break between Stephen Stills' two songs, and rocked the house. The place went wild as Clinton not only spoke about Sting and Trudie's dedication, but let Kevin Spacey do imitations of the former president at the mike with him. "Sometimes you can't tell who's talking," Clinton said. Then referring to Spacey's role as a vicious president elect on "House of Cards," Clinton marveled of Spacey's Frank Underwood, "He's president and a murderer."
Sting and Trudie will be on the Today Show this morning in the 9am hour to talk about the RF benefit concert and The Last Ship. Be sure to tune in!
