    "STING" has always been one of my favorite artists and the album he's recording in this video is my favorite album of his.

    I know for sure that he went to college to become a teacher and taught for 2 years. I had also heard he was an English teacher, but I'm not sure about that. He certainly has a way with words. I wonder what the newbies who've never heard of him (or his music) think of this video.

    PS He was born on October 2, 1951. I was born exactly one month before.

    Sh*t, we're old.....:(

    I double checked. He was a certified primary school teacher in England. He also taught English in St Paul's First School, a secondary school, in Cramlington near Newcastle. If you want to feel even older, Sting's son, singer Joseph Sumner, just turned 37.

    Tony Danza also went to college to become a secondary teacher, I believe.
