Many things are taught on Robert Fripp's guitar courses, but one cannot imagine that defensive tactics against scorpions is one of them. Saints preserve us!

Sting Goes Broadway

The first couple of albums were full of fire and conviction. Listen to those albums and Sting sounds like he's singing for his life.
