Ted’s List, the leading resource on the internet for musical instrument reviews and advice, has announced that legendary drummer Stewart Copeland has been awarded the prestigious title of ‘Ted’s List Drum Champion’. 

Copeland, best known for his work with the iconic rock band The Police, was recognised for his unparalleled talent and contributions to the world of drumming.

“Stewart Copeland is a true master of his craft,” said Robert Emery, spokesperson and founder of Ted’s List. “His innovative style and technical prowess have inspired countless drummers around the world, and we are thrilled to honour him with this award.”

Copeland, who has been playing drums for over 50 years, expressed his gratitude for the recognition. “I am deeply honoured to receive this award from Ted’s List,” he said. “Drumming has been my passion since I was a young boy, and to be recognised in this way is truly humbling.”

As the ‘Ted’s List Drum Champion’, Copeland joins an elite group of musicians who have been recognised for their exceptional talent and contributions to the world of music. Previous recipients of the award include Brian May, Russell Watson and Lang Lang.

In addition to his work with The Police, Copeland has collaborated with a wide range of artists throughout his career, including Peter Gabriel, Tom Waits, and Adam Ant. He has also composed music for films, television shows, and video games.

To celebrate Copeland’s achievement, Ted’s List has published a special feature on their website, highlighting some of his most memorable performances and providing insights into his unique drumming style. The feature also includes an exclusive interview with Copeland, in which he shares his thoughts on the state of modern drumming and offers advice to aspiring musicians.

“I believe that drumming is all about expressing yourself,” Copeland said in the interview. “It’s not about playing the fastest or the loudest, but about finding your own voice and using it to create something unique and meaningful.”
