Sting’s Drummers – Vinnie Colaiuta and Manu Katché | Recreating Iconic Drum Sounds


Great Gift Ideas for Drummers

Sting has always played the bass himself – and what does a great bass player need? Of course: A great dummer.
But Sting didn’t want to just go for any mediocre drummer, but rather chose to play with the masters themselves. After his time with The Police and legendary Stewart Copeland on drums, he pursued his solo career and chose only the finest drummers to play with, most notably Vinnie Colaiuta and Manu Katché. Here’s our take on both those legend’s drum sounds.
