Andy Summers' Biography "One Train Later" - Now a Feature Film!

In 2006, guitarist Andy Summers released his autobiography "One Train Later," which chronicled his life in music - most notably his years in the tremendously popular pop-rock band The Police with Sting and Stewart Copeland. After many years of speculation and delays, a much-anticipated version of his story has been used as the basis for a new documentary film: "Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police."

The film covers not just the years written about in his book, but of course The Police's highly successful Reunion Tour of 2007-2008. After a limited release in theaters at various festivals, the film is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.

On this page you will find a collection of links and news about the film, compiled for all fans of Andy Summers and The Police. And of course, you'll find information on how to get a copy of the film for yourself!

Fans of The Police will certainly find this book a worthy addition to the "inside-out" autobiographies penned by bandmates Sting ("Broken Music"), Stewart Copeland ("Strange Things Happen") and Henry Padovani ("Secret Policeman"), and road manager Ian Copeland ("Wild Thing"). Summers is perhaps the most brutally honest about the darker side of success and stardom in these pages, yet his love for music and the guitar shines through it all, in his wonderful prose and insightful, well-crafted imagery. Any rock music lover should be sure to read this book.

 

"One Train Later" - Get a Copy of Andy Summers' Biography

Andy Summers' "One Train Later" has received high praise from many critics and fans alike. With depreciating honesty and dry British wit, he tells of many adventures and incidents throughout his life, including encounters with everyone from Eric Clapton to Jimi Hendrix, and even John Belushi. BlogCritics calls it "humorous, sad, and complex - a thorough examination of a conflicted man holding nothing back." RockHack says "Ian Copeland's book had a more colorful description of getting their gear out of customs in Egypt, but Summers otherwise provides plenty of choice anecdotes about touring in exotic locales." Entertainment Weekly praised it as "A rollicking, you-are-there history of the '60s" and The Daily Vault notes how "Summers renders one scene after another with a rich mixture of clarity and bemusement, conveying both the intimate details and, with the benefit of twenty years' perspective, the greater significance and/or absurdity of any given situation along his twisting path."

Stewart Copeland's own documentary of his years in The Police, released before the reunion tour began, "Everyone Stares: The Police Inside Out" makes for a great companion piece to Andy's documentary. It features predominantly Stewart's own "home video" recordings of the band along with his very unique narrative voice and exlusive "Derangements" of classic Police tracks.
