Great!
This was very interesting. I liked the new version/remix of Never Coming Home very much. I think it is even better than the version on Sacred Love album, which is very good also.

Maybe radio stations have 42 minutes of commercial time added between the good stuff?

Not an hour only 18 minutes : (
In the jukebox it's only approx. 18 mins. but the summary above says an hour long interview. What gives? Will this be available as a podcast or something downloadable? Thanks Tina Dave and Wendy. ~Josh/surpata

"I've still got two sexy weeks left," Sting points out when the subject comes up, eyebrows raised in mock defiance...

In the next few months, Sting will celebrate his 25th anniversary as a solo artist (and his 60th birthday) with a new box set and theater tour. The biggest party, though, will be the October 1st benefit he's throwing for the Robin Hood Foundation in New York, where he'll be joined by Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, Billy Joel and many more. For Sting, the show is both a celebration and chance to give back. Rolling Stone spoke with him backstage at the iHeartRadio festival last weekend about fame, looking back, current music and the relationships in his life as he turns 60...
