When Stewart Copeland gets dressed, he has an identity crisis. Should he pu t on "leather pants, hostile shirts, and pointy shoes"? Or wear something m ore appropriate to the "tax-paying, property-owning, investment-holding lot us eater" his success has allowed him to become? This dilemma is at the hea rt of Copeland's vastly entertaining memoir-in-stories, Strange Things Happ en. The world knows Copeland as the drummer for The Police, one of the most successful bands in rock history. But they may not know as much about his childhood in the Middle East as the son of a CIA agent. Or be aware of his film-making adventures with the Pygmies in the deepest reaches of the Congo , and his passion for polo (Brideshead Revisited on horses). In Strange Thi ngs Happen we move from Copeland's remarkable childhood to the formation of The Police, their rise to stardom, and the settled-down life that followed . It ends with a behind-the-scenes view of The Police's extraordinarily suc cessful reunion tour. It's a book of amazing anecdotes, all completely true , which take us backstage in a life that is fully lived.
