Sting took part in a web-chat with fans on the AOL UK network on 21 January 2002. Here is the full transcript of the chat...
The live album Sting planned to release last month was to be unlike most other in-concert discs. ...All This Time' would be recorded at a private villa in Tuscany, Italy. A five-camera crew would capture the rehearsal period and show, and a simultaneous international webcast was announced. With his long-time band and several guest musicians, Sting would reconstruct arrangements of his best-known songs. The small audience would consist of 200 friends, family members and a few contest winners from around the world. He hoped the result would be a personal, intimate performance...

Sting's live album recording echoes U.S. tragedy. "Irony doesn't translate into print, so I'm never ironic on tape," says the rock star to the cassette recorder. Getting no response, he leans closer and shouts. "Ever...!"
Falling for her, lock stock and barrel: Trudie Styler - actress, producer and the very well-connected wife of Sting - is hard to resist, as a sceptical James Harding discovers...
Playing Anna Friel's mum in a new movie proved an emotional experience for Trudie Styler. Trudie Styler, looking svelte and sexy in a Seventies turquoise jump-suit, stretches out on a sofa and pauses for a moment before explaining why the film she's been shooting on the Isle of Man has been her most emotional screen experience...
11.01.01BILLBOARD
Sting On The Fragile Art Of 'All This Time': I looked out across the river ...and saw a city and an old church tower ...priests came 'round tonight ...to offer prayers for the dying, to serve the final rite - Sting, 'All This Time'. Like echoing fragments of a familiar song, the sights at dusk on a recent September day at the Certosa del Galluzzo priory and church near Tuscany's Arno River seemed stirring and sadly symbolic in their comforting agelessness-as if life's deepest sensations have all been known and felt before. Minutes before sundown, a portly Italian monk of the Cisterian order met Sting; his wife, Trudie Styler; and their few guests at the massive gate of the castle-like monastery overlooking Florence. After bows and cordial hand clasps were exchanged, he led us down into the cloister's cavernous, 14th-century corridors...
11.01.01BBC RADIO 2
We met Sting earlier last week just ahead of his one-off date on November 5th in the BBC Radio Theatre and we talked about music, The Police and we talked about his new album too. It's called '...All This Time' and I was doing some sums and it's probably the wrong side of twenty one years - does it feel like that...?
The following transcript is of a webchat that Sting did on 31October 2001 with Vizzavi. Hosting the chat was Jools Holland...
10.01.01THE TIMES
He's as well known for his outspoken defence of human rights and the rainforest as he is for his music. But for the past two years Sting has been concentrating on what he does best - playing live with his band. Alan Franks meets a lord of the rockocracy in his Tuscan palazzo. If the New York terrorists had wanted to spoil Sting's party, they could hardly have shown more lethal timing. As he stepped out to front the band in the courtyard of his Tuscan villa, it was barely five hours after the collapse of the World Trade Centre. This was an audience of just 200 friends, invited from all over the place to hear an intimate version of the concert which he has been taking round the world for the past two years. A live album, to be released next month, was being recorded. The mood should have been exuberant, but it was understandably weird and sombre, with that nightmare footage of planes and buildings still looping through everyone's head...
Sting believes in taking chances. Here he explains why he quit a steady job for the dole, left the Police at their peak - and how he deals with happiness ONE man's risk is another's sure bet. I may have the reputation for being a risk-taker, but when I look back, I wasn't always conscious of taking them. To me, at the crossroads, there weren't really two divergent paths for me to consider; two stark but equally compelling choices. There was a dead end and the edge of a cliff. So, if it's die or jump, is it risk or destiny? Maybe it doesn't matter. Maybe risk is destiny...

It's a hectic spring evening at the Four Seasons hotel in Cairo, and everyone seems to be buzzing around. Clearly something BIG is about to happen. As international and local journalists rush to get good seats, excitement fills the room. It seems hard to believe that in a few moments he will actually be sitting here amongst us, relaxed and ready to answer our questions...
You're doing lunch at the Tides with Sting, the thinking man's pop star. But he's having a hard time focusing. There's some jazz playing in the background, a cool sax thing nobody else is paying attention to...

Hours before his performance that he gave yesterday night in the Estadio Nacional, the legendary Britain musician said he is living the happiest time of his life. He doesn't have ambition for more awards, just to play music...
01.17.01LA NACIÓN
"I want to sunbathe so I don't look like an Englishman, that's why I came early", says Sting, from Río de Janeiro. He's in the city where, on Friday, the third edition of the Rock in Rio Festival will begin. He will perform on the opening night. "It's a good night, because James Taylor, Gilberto Gil and Milton Nascimento will also be there. I'm going to play, but I'm going to listen a lot of music as well", he says to La Nación, during a long interview over the phone...
