Sting is best known for his years of work with The Police as principal songwriter, bassist, and lead singer. After the group's initial hiatus in 1983, he embarked on a solo career that saw him move to a more pop-rock oriented sound. His first solo album, 1985's The Dream of the Blue Turtles, yielded the hit "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free," and reached triple platinum in sales. Sting has also acted in many films, including the movie version of The Who's Quadrophenia, and as Baron Frankenstein in The Bride, and is a noted philanthropist and activist. He has won a total of eleven Grammy Awards and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
