Under The Influence: Andy Summers (The Police)

Are you a big fan of the Beatles? 
Isn't everyone?

  I was drawn to [Strawberry Fields Forever] in particular because it’s dark and a bit more twisted. Plus they had that fascinating backwards thing going around in it. And the Lennon vocal gets me every time. McCartney wrote the up, ingratiating melodies while Lennon usually wrote f***ed up and down. So even though this is sort of an avant-garde pop piece, Lennon brings an aspect of the blues to it.
