Sting, CBE (born Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner; 2 October 1951) is an English musician, singer-songwriter, activist, actor and philanthropist. Prior to starting his solo career, he was the principal songwriter, lead singer and bassist of the rock music band The Police.
As a solo musician and member of The Police, Sting has received sixteen Grammy Awards for his work, receiving his first Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 1981, and receiving an Academy Award nomination for best song. He is a member of both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
A flashback in "Deep Throats" shows how big a rip-off Peter's "Sounds of the Rainforest" CD was. Among the sounds is two construction workers knocking down trees who bad-mouth Sting and his song "Desert Rose".
In "We Love You, Conrad", he is first seen at one of his concerts in a cutaway after it is pointed out that in many of his songs, very few lyrics can be understood. Here, he performs "Brand New Day". Later, at the Russell-Wilcox wedding, he was part of the entertainment, and sang "Fields of Gold".
