Schoener, Eberhard - Flashback

SKU 21-MIG-CD-302
This is the best known of his works...mainly because his backing band was The Police (then completely unknown). It mostly sounds like Eberhard, but you can hear a little bit of The Police in it too. Funny!

" He is a tall man in his fifties with romantic wisps of grey hair framing an interestingly lugubrious face. His face looks like an eighteenth century aristocrat who has somehow been displaced into the twentieth. It was Andy Summers, The Police's guitarist who had introduced us all years ago. Andy brought Stewart Copeland and me to Munich in 1977 to work with this unusual director. Eberhard Schoener needed a band of versatile musicians to take part in a show that he was creating. We had only recently formed The Police and were desperately in need of funds to keep our venturous dreams of stardom alive. Hence, a couple of weeks working in Germany as part of (as Andy described it) 'a multi media extravaganza of lasers, circus, rock, classical and electronic music, with ballet dancers and a mime artist' was too seductive to refuse not to mention extremely well paid. We were on the next plane out, not quite sure what we were in for but none the less excited. Eberhard's urbane cosmopolitanism, his old fashioned German addiction to romanticism and his insistence that modern life could still be an adventure inspired me greatly, as he really seemed to be a man born in those days."-Sting
