How Old Is Sting, Anyway?

Old enough to be a Kennedy Center lifetime accomplishment honoree.  I caught the end of the broadcast on CBS last night, after they had honored Tom Hanks, Lilly Tomlin, Al Green, and Patricia McBride.  I only saw the performances of Sting’s work by Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen and Bruno Mars.  I was blown away.

In this age of all reality shows all the time, when Average Joe seeks discovery on TV talent shows week after week, true professionals honoring one of their own washed the airwaves with their own glorious renditions of the work of an icon.  Spectacular.  Even if you aren’t a fan of Gaga or Mars, their tributes to Sting are worth a listen.  And, of course, Springsteen is the Boss.
