Item description for Sting: Autobiografía (Broken Music: A Memoir by Sting) (Spanish Edition) by Sting...
Go into the private life of one of the greatest musicians of all times
This autobiography is one more chapter in the life of one of rocks megastars. From the beginning pages, it is certain that this is a serious work, a painful, sincere and intense self-exploration. Sting relates details of his family life, his first years of school, the routes in which he accompanied his father to deliver milk at daybreak and even episodes that marked him for life, like finding his mother in an adulterous situation. Thus, with an admirable pace and very far from the brightness, glamour and the arrogance that many stars approach when writing about their own lives, Sting takes us through his life from childhood and adolescence and stops when he exits the group "The Police", at approximately 25 years of age.
"I had no interest in writing a traditional autobiographical recitation of everything that's ever happened to me. Instead, I found myself drawn to exploring specific moments, certain people and relationships, and particular events which still resonate powerfully for me as I try to understand the child I was, and the man I became." -Sting
Sting, whose real name is Gordon Matthew Sumner, was born in England in 1951. He was a Spanish professor and in his beginnings played in a jazz orchestra.

Review of Sting's Broken Music Jun 16, 2004
The Police (and Sting) have been sitting in my top ten bands for some time now, and so I was keen to read Sting's story, maybe hoping to find some of the inspiration and meaning behind some of his songs. Some of his songs are explained I guess, and it does tell of how the Police were formed etc. I found it to be a little slow going at the start and again in other places, but it's still worth a read for Sting and Police fans definately. He also doesn't come off too arrogant I reckon, which many people accuse him of. Basically tells his life story up to the mid twenties, which includes being a teacher, a husband, father, son, teenager up to no good etc.
