ANIMAL LOGIC BIOGRAPHY

After The Police disbanded each member of the trio explored solo activities. Of course we all know how well things went for Sting who became a big solo rock star. Andy Summers went "new age." And Stewart Copeland started doing soundtracks.

Not satified with merely composing the theme to TV's The Equalizer or such hit films as Francis Ford Coppola's RUMBLEFISH, Stewart hooked up with jazz great (and ex-Return To Forever bassist) Stanley Clarke and singer/songwriter Deborah Holland to form...Animal Logic

Animal Logic Publicity Still
A group with this sort of pedigree seemed destined for greatness, and there is no arguing that the musicianship of this trio (and the contributions of an all-star roster of guest musicians) were anything less than stellar. Alas their popularity with the public never grew to the potential it deserved, and beyond being a favorite among music insiders, they only filled small venues on tour and barely registered any meaningful chart activity. Animal Logic broke up after only two critically well-received albums.

Of course all three members continue to perform solo in their individual musical fields: Clarke is the preeminent fusion jazz bassist of the day. Holland has released several solo records and continues performing as a singer/songwriter. Copeland continues to work scoring several films a year.
