How Gordon Sumner Used Positive Thinking To Make Fame Happen Before He Became Rockstar Sting - By Stephen Richards

Back in the 1970s, two young men were sitting in a Tyneside (England) pub at a table staring into the dregs of their beer. They were both down on their luck. However, one of the men said, "I’m just waiting for the chance to burst onto the world. I want to go to London and become a word-famous pop star and musician. I’m simply wasting my talents here in Newcastle. I've got to move on. I just feel special; that’s all. Is that so bad?” The man talking? Sting!

See the full story in the new book ‘Three Sumner Tales’ based on the Sting endorsed biography 'A Sting in the Tale' (the only biography about, and approved of, by Sting) by Sting's friend James Berryman.

Three Sumner Tales is a story of Sting the boy, the young man; it is an utterly stunning piece of work. Adapted by James Berryman into 3 x 30 minute semi-biographical situation comedies (TV sitcom) from the book ‘A Sting in the Tail’, the only biography about, and approved of, by Sting.

Each eye-wateringly funny dialogue in this e-book is based on real life events featuring Sting, Jim Berryman and related characters. It is set in 60s and 70s Newcastle before Sting rose to fame as the frontman of the band The Police.

Each of these real life scripts delivers some truly slick comedy, and Jim Berryman’s writing talents bring to each one of them a kind of magic that is quite hilarious and in the tradition of TV’s ‘Only Fool’s and Horses’, ‘Dad’s Army’ and ‘Fawlty Towers’. The intricate storylines in ‘Three Sumner Tales’ are delivered with a sprinkling of slapstick that has been lovingly-crafted. Even though these relate to some years after their setting, Jim Berryman’s writing is evergreen. Revealed within are issues of Sting’s personality, excitement and triumph, all set against a setting that will appeal to any age.
