Sting Prefers 16th Century Ballads To Rock

Posted October 19, 2006 - By Frank Meyer

Geeeez, talk about your old fogies! Sting is not just saying that he thinks today’s music is lame by yesteryear’s standards, but "yesteryear" to him is the friggin' 16th Century!!!

Yes, the former Police frontman told a German newspaper that he prefers singing songs of Elizabethan lutenist and composer John Dowland to the contemporary rock music of today.

So it’s no surprise that his new album, Songs from the Labyrinth, is comprised of Dowland lute music. Well, I guess it is a surprise if you ever thought of Sting as being a rock ‘n’ roll guy, kinda hip, or at least not a complete and utter bore.

So…um, surprise!

"Rock music has come to a standstill," Sting said. "It's not going forward any more, it only bores me,"

So I guess rather than create actual good rock music himself, he’ll just distance himself from it, criticize it and instead perform music no one in their right mind would ever want to hear that makes him seem as out of touch as humanly possible.

Good move, jerk.
