Frankly, I am not the biggest fan of The Police and Sting. It has nothing to do with their or his musicianship, or his tantric abilities. Maybe The Police are just played too much on the radio. Within the last year, I received a 2-CD set of the best of Sting's work, and there was only one I liked. This one.

Like Gordon, I like westerns. My mom tells me I was named after Davy Crockett. It made me proud when I was young, though I didn't know what a "bar" was.
