Due to his poor personal hygene, Sting was called 'Stink' by his class mates. Due to an over inflated ego he corrupted this to 'Sting' because he thought it cooler. It isn't cool, it's just stupid

From Edwarda85 06/09/2016 16:34
Sting has quite a reputation. There's the good stuff (Intelligent, Eloquent, Great Voice, Talented Musician, apparent sex god in his day),

And the bad (Pretentious, Snobbish, Preachy)

His longevity, Police included, deserves praise and his solo career was a success. He gets more hate than he deserves. I'm surprised he isn't more revered considering he kept to himself mostly and did what he liked to do, music.

I'm a fan and surprised more people aren't.

At first I was surprised Sting isn't rated higher. Then I realized that his albums can be pretty hit or miss affairs. Some, such as the Soul Cages, are even pretty difficult to get through. But when he does get it right he is a top notch songwriter.
