Answer the following trivia question for the chance to win an autographed copy of Sting's album Songs From The Labyrinth! For years, Sting was asked to perform the music of 16th century English composer John Dowland. The idea finally came to fruition after he met the Bosnian lute player Edin Karamazov, who worked with Sting extensively on the project. Sting calls Dowland "the archetype for the traveling musician."

Check out these photos of Sting at iHeartRadio Music Festival - where Clear Channel Radio Stations presented the largest concert event in Radio History at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 23 and 24, 2011 in Las Vegas. Sting, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Alicia Keys, Steven Tyler, The Black Eyed Peas, Kenny Chesney, John Mayer, Jennifer Lopez, Usher, Carrie Underwood, Jane's Addiction, Nicki Minaj, David Guetta, Rascal Flatts, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Sublime with Rome, were just some of the Music Superstars To Converge On Las Vegas on 23/24 September... Awesome stuff!
Interview: the thing about Sting… is that he is arrogant, stubborn, hypocritical and pretentious. Or is he? As he approaches his 60th birthday, Elizabeth Day joins him in France and discovers just how wrong you can be... Sting is sitting on a bar stool in a white T-shirt and grey camouflage-patterned combat trousers, playing a harmonica. In front of him, a 20-piece orchestra is half-way through a classical arrangement of one of his songs, producing a swelling crescendo of sound that fills the stage. Behind him rise the steep, stone-hewn seats of a Roman amphitheatre in Lyon where, later tonight, Sting will play to a packed crowd of French fans as part of his Symphonicity world tour...

Looking at Sting in the flesh, it's nearly impossible to believe he turns 60 a week today. Lean, muscular, tanned and looking ridiculously fit, he has just returned from a bike ride around his adopted home of New York City. Years of clean living and yoga have left him with the body and energy levels of a man half his age. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the former Police front man is also struggling with the fact he is about to enter his seventh decade. "I can't quite believe it," he muses from his apartment balcony overlooking Central Park. "It doesn't quite compute for me being 60. I still feel like I am 14. I think I have maintained my curiosity about the world and my sense of wonder at it. If that is what feeling young is about then I feel young. I am not jaundiced by the world - I still find it fascinating..."
