SPECIAL LIVE EVENT: A Conversation & Book Reading with Andy Summers in Los Angeles August 18, 2021

On the eve of the publication of his new book of short stories, Fretted & Moaning, the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Andy Summers for a special conversation about publishing his first work of fiction, followed by a reading from the collection. The conversation will be moderated by music journalist Lyndsey Parker.

Musician, composer, photographer, guitarist, and author Andy Summers has written short stories ever since he became a member of The Police, and they are as smart, witty, and unexpected as his music and photography. Now for the first time, 45 are collected together in this hardback book.

Andy’s stories in Fretted & Moaning reveal a cast of characters drawn from the world of music, chief among them guitarists. Every tale has at its heart music or a guitar and a person whose ambition, hopes, dreams, loves, hates, failures and successes are revealed in uncanny, funny, and never expected ways.
