However, during a recording session with ex-Velvet Underground member/producer John Cale, Padovani left due to his inadequate guitar skills. The three piece lineup of Sting-Summers-Copeland would remain for the rest of their existence. The Police recorded five studio albums over the span of their career. However, their final album released in 1983, Synchronicity is commonly referred to as a classic as well as the greatest of their works. « hide
