Last Saturday, I had the distinct privilege of meeting Sting. Many people think he's just about the coolest guy on the planet, still others are sure he's a prima donna (after all, he is a celebrity). Well, I'm here to tell you exactly who this guy is... At The Public Theater in New York City (a unique historic venue for artists of all types), Sting has been performing his new CD titled The Last Ship, which will also appear on Broadway as a musical next year. The premise is based on the local shipbuilding industry in the town of Wallsend, England, where Sting lived as a boy...

Taking the stage in the first of 10 sold-out performances at New York City's 260-seat Anspacher Theater at The Public, the evening was an opportunity to both promote Sting's new album and debut the musical's songs, as he put it, "Before I turn them over to the actors." Incredibly fit at 61, with his blond tufts now turned to a salt-and-pepper buzzcut, Sting looked more like Steven Berkoff for John Varvatos in his casual but clearly expensive white T-shirt and faded blue demin. Backed by a 14-piece band - that included five backing vocalists, two fiddle players, one accordionist, a drummer, bassist, guitarist, two actors (Jimmy Nail and Jo Lawry) and his musical director Rob Mathes on piano and acoustic guitar - the former Gordon Sumner captivated the room with his presence. But it was his music that truly stood out in an evening of songs and spoken word. Think: Behind The Music: Sting Goes to Broadway...
