We didn`t go to school together. We didn`t grow up in the same neighborhood. We were never a tribe. There was friction for the right reasons. We care passionately about the music and we`re all strong characters, and nobody would be pushed around. So it was part of our dynamic. We fought cat and dog over everything.
Most bands are from the same neighbourhood, they have the same background and education. Ours couldn`t be more different. Stewart was born in Beirut with American diplomatic parents, Andy was from the genteel south coast, and I am from Wallsend. We didn`t have that common bond. Our bond is that we were in the Police and we can make music together.
