Andy Summers: Previous pinner wrote, "So much space."   In 1981, Queen and The Police were my favorite bands. I've been a huge Andy Summers fan since around 1979 and think some of his licks are the best ever recorded, especially the main riffs from "Message In a Bottle", "Walking On The Moon", and that incredibly catchy little fill near the end of the instrumental "Reggatta de Blanc".

The Police were a new kind of power trio, and Andy Summers was the main reason. Quickly moving away from punk, he recast jazz chords and reggae rhythms as headlong rock & roll. Summers played as sparely as possible, constructing clipped twitches or dubby washes of sound – leaving ample room for Sting and Stewart Copeland. "His tone and style were just absolutely perfect – he left space around everything," Rush's Alex Lifeson said.
