"Weekend At Bernie's" Scorer Andy Summers Pleased He Could Find Time For Police Reunion Tour

Rock guitarist Andy Summers said this week he was glad he was able to clear his schedule for the upcoming reunion tour of the Police, with former bandmates Stewart Copeland and Gordon Sumner (aka Sting).
"For a while, I really wasn't sure it all would work out, what with all the balls I have in the aair," Summers told in an interview following the annoucement of the 2007 tour, which kicks off in March. "But Sting called me up and started talking about all the fond memories and how it could be just like old times, and I kind of couldn't say no to him."
After the breakup of The Police in 1986, Summers worked on musical scores for such films as "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" and "Weekend at Bernie's." He also led the band on the talk show hosted by comedian Dennis Miller and had several guest spots on TV shows and appearances in films. He later toured with the bands Rush Hour and Animal Logic.
"It'll be great to see the guys again," he said of Copeland and Sting. "They can really use the money and exposure."
