Sting was a schoolteacher for 3 years. During this time, he played in bands nights and weekends.
His real name is Gordon Sumner. Got the name Sting from a black and yellow striped sweater he wore that made him look like a bumble bee.
Some of the movies he acted in include Quadrophenia, Dune, The Bride, Plenty, The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen, and Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels. His first movie role was in The Great Rock And Roll Swindle as a member of the Fabulous Blowwaves, the band that nearly rapes Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook. (thanks, John - Levittown, NY)
He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
He has 6 children: 2 with his first wife, Frances Tomelty, 4 with his current wife, Trudie Styler.
In high school, he was a champion sprinter.
Sting recorded a live album in Italy on September 11, 2001. He completed the show and eventually released the album.
His first acting experience was before he joined the Police. He was in a Bra commercial for a few seconds, playing pinball. (thanks, Dan - West Hartford, CT)
He did the soundtrack for Brimstone And Treacle featuring the song "Spread A Little Happiness." He also played the leading Role in this Movie. (thanks, Sabrina - Vienna, Austria)
During his three years as a school teacher, several girls had crushes on Sting. The Police song "Don't Stand So Close To Me
" is about a teacher who is attracted to one of his students, but Sting has denied that this came from any personal experience.
