  • Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police

    Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Dec, 2014 2

    The rise and demise of The Police as told through the lense of Andy Summers, the guitarist and probably lesser known of the three band members. 

    This is the sort of documentary that I could watch all day and all night and into the early hours of the morning and contemplate rewatching the next day.

    The story of his relationship with his wife and family, which is woven through, is heartbreaking. 

    I'd like to see more of his photography. What an awesome record and memory. I imagine him getting lost in that archive for days. 

    Recommended.

    ★★★½ Rewatched 08 Jul, 2014

    Do you like Phil Collins?

    Actually, I do.

    I am a bit young for Genesis, to be honest, but still appreciate their later work. Their two-part live album "The Way We Walk" is a go-to selection. Especially "That's All" and "Throwing It All Away", featuring the sublime keyboards of Tony Banks (who? exactly!)

    But, his solo albums, while much maligned, will eventually get the credit they deserve. I'm sure.

    Granted, there are some cheesy singles, and "In The Air Tonight"…
