Somewhere between photojournalism and an illustrated diary, Taschen's Andy Summers I'll Be Watching You follows The Police on tour around the globe between 1980 and 1983 through the eyes of one of their most intimate insiders, guitarist Andy Summers. From the American West to Japan, Summers’s 600 plus photographs capture bandmates Sting and Stewart Copeland on- and offstage, as well as landscapes, still lifes, and passersby they encountered on the road.

More Details

In the early 1980s, The Police went on tour accompanied by a photographer who documented the band behind the scenes in a series of candid and striking blackand-white photos. This talented photographer also happened to be the band’s guitarist, Andy Summers. Yes, it’s true—the man responsible for the guitar lick from “Every Breath You Take” was not only the backbone of one of the most popular bands of all time, he also possessed a visual gift for composition and mood that allowed him to capture the spirit of The Police better than anyone else could have. This book, somewhere between photojournalism and an illustrated diary, follows The Police around the globe between 1980 and 1983. From the American West to Australia to Japan, Summers recorded not only the band members rehearsing and partying—the proverbial sex, drugs, and rock and roll—he also photographed fans, landscapes, still lifes, and passersby in a reportage style reminiscent of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank. Containing over 600 photos—most of them previously unpublished—and filled with diary-style entries, I’ll Be Watching You is a sumptuous volume beating with musical energy, nostalgia, and atmospheric beauty.
