Sting - born Gordon Sumner, was co-founder, bassist, and lead singer for London pop reggae trio, the Police. After 5 albums, and becoming the most popular band in the world, they split in 1983. With a very recognizable voice, he was able to sustain considerable popularity as a vibrant solo artist while mixing elements of jazz and world music rhythms into his sound.

Seriously though. Brendon could have just given up. But he didn't and he stayed successful and awesome. Brendon is one of my biggest inspirations. There are only some people that can make a whole album alone. That is pure talent and I love Brendon for making Death of a Bachelor.
