HE was the lead guitarist in The Police, playing alongside Sting and drummer Stuart Copeland… and Andy Summers is today a huge name in the annals of rock.
But the former Bournemouth classmates of Andy Summers – who launched a solo career after the band disbanded in 1984 – are hoping he might be attracted back for a year group reunion.
He is pictured in the school photo above in the back row, second from the left.
The reunion is aimed at ex-pupils who left Summerbee Secondary School in 1959 and is being organised by David Cox, who now lives in Surrey.
He is hoping as many of the Year 5 three classes of Academic, Technical and Commercial at Summerbee will be able to attend.
“Fifty three years later a few of us, who are still in touch, are looking to hold a reunion for the whole of the 1959 year group on March 30 at a Bournemouth venue,” said David, who was in the Academic class.
“As the age of the group will be in the region of 69, the reunion will be based on a meet, greet and converse over a drink.
“The time for high jinks is long past.”
For more information on the reunion evening contact David at [email protected] or call him on 01932 232797.
Summerbee School itself was built in 1953 at Mallard Road and its former pupils also include the former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Paul Condon.
