what happened next
The Police subsequently went on to become one of the world's biggest bands. They played Aylesbury again at very short notice in July 82 as a warm up to their huge Gateshead Stadium gig resulting in an all night queue in Aylesbury Cattle Market. By 1984 the band had effectively split and played their last gigs in 1986.  Sting went on to have a hugely successful solo career. Apart from playing at each others weddings spontaneously (and still arguing judging by the Behind the Music programme, they reformed in 2007 and went onto play the UK's biggest arenas and Stadiums. In 2008 they played their last ever UK gigs at the Isle of Wight Festival and then Hyde Park.

The Cramps ended in 2009 with Lux Interior's death.
