Sting, 70, is one of Britain’s most celebrated musicians with 18 Grammy awards, three Brit Awards and even a CBE for his services to music. However, despite almost 45 years in the industry, The Police lead singer has not been made a ‘Sir’.
Musicians including Elton John, Rod Stewart and Tom Jones have all been knighted for their services to music.
Now, Sting has spoken out at not being made ‘Sir Sting’, but maintains he is “OK with [it]”.
Speaking to The Sun, the hitmaker said: “I am already a Commander [of the British Empire], which is the same rank as James Bond.
“So, I’m OK with that.
“Sir Sting doesn’t have a ring to it.”
It comes after the crooner admitted he is still “sad” after “egos” caused The Police to split.
The rock band, who had hits including Every Breath You Take and Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, separated in 1986.
Sting says the break-up was “tough” because he loved Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers, and says they had a “fantastic adventure” together in the band.
He told The Mirror: “We had been through so many things and success.
“So, to see it sort of falling apart for ego, my own and theirs, made me sad. It still does.”
He added that he knew the band would split during the production of The Police’s final album, Synchronicity.
He continued: “The tension between the members of the band was becoming more apparent, you know, because I was writing all the songs it’s always a problem with bands.

“At first it is a kind of democracy and then it becomes not a democracy, it becomes a benign dictatorship I would say. But that’s the nature of art.
“You know, somebody has to step up and say ‘OK, we’re gonna go this way’.”
Sting has been married twice. His first wife was actress Frances Tomelty, who were wed from 1976 to 1984.
The pair share two children, Joseph, 45, and Fuchsia, 39.
After their separation, Sting wed Trudie Styler in 1992 and had four more children: Brigitte Michael, 37, Jake, 36, Eliot (nicknamed Coco), 31, and Giacomo, 26.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the icon has a massive £299 million ($400 million) in the bank.
However, he has said that despite his enormous wealth, his children will not be inheriting his fortune.
He previously told the Mail: “I certainly don’t want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks.
“They have to work. All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate.”
