Former Police rocker ANDY SUMMERS has slammed former colleague Sting's recent music as boring and "middle-of-the-road".

The message in a bottle bassist hopes the legendary band will reform for a worldwide tour, but is worried about Sting's current tastes in music.

He says, "Sting did a couple of good albums after we split up but most of the recent stuff isn't to my taste.

"I just don't get it. He listens to all this great jazz music yet he comes out with really middle-of-the-road music of his own. I just don't get why he has to work with Mary J Blige."
