The website Club JDD features an interesting article/interview about Henry Padovani. You can find it here.
Henry Padovani (born in Bastia, Corsica) was the original guitarist with The Police. In 1977, he was replaced by Andy Summers. For a brief period between July and August 1977, The Police performed live as a four piece band with Padovani and Summers sharing guitar duties. After an aborted studio session with producer John Cale, Padovani decided to leave the band.
He recorded with producer Yves Aouizerate a solo album in 2006, à croire que c’était pour la vie, sung in French, including the song “Welcome Home” featuring Stewart Copeland and Sting of The Police. This was the first time the “original” members of the Police recorded together since “Fallout”, “Nothing Achieving” and ‘ Visions of the Night’. Manu Katché, Steve Hunter, Glen Matlock and Chris Musto also appear on the album. to be released in spring 2007.
Henry also released a book in April 2006, Secret Police Man, that recounts many episodes of his “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll” London lifestyle in the late 1970s and the early days of The Police.
