“IT WAS GET PUNK OR GET OUT OF TOWN,” REMINISCED ANDY SUMMERS IN the June, 2007 issue of GP, as he recalled the musical climate in the U.K. ca. the summer
of ’77. “For me, it was a horrible lowering of musical values. Happily, it wasn’t
long before we got out of that and started to slowly develop our own thing.” Their
“own thing,” of course, is now Police history. Summers essentially redefined the
role of guitarist in a power trio, a dirty job that had to be done. His clean, chorused,
echoing guitar sound, and his fresh chord voicings and minimalistic, textural approach
to the instrument opened ears, and made a huge impact on guitarists from Alex Lifeson
to the Edge.
