Stewart Copeland is not only one of the greatest drummers in pop history, he is also a fantastically funny interview partner. During our Zoom talk about his new project THE POLICE DE-RANGED for Orchestra, he didn't hesitate to jokingly trash jazz (one of his hobbies as they say), comparing playing with The Police to World War 3 and also explained why it's better NOT to play The Police songs with The Police. All in good fun obviously — never leaving a moment of doubt about how much he enjoys performing.
