Sting performed at the MusiCares event to honour James Taylor as person of the year. The event took place on February 6th at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Sting played an acoustic “Close Your Eyes”. Sting first saw Taylor as a 19-year-old in Newcastle, England, in 1971. “I’m a budding songwriter. At least I think I am,” the former Police frontman recalled. “I want to see what all the fuss is about. Within four bars, I realize he’s a virtuoso of the guitar. He starts to sing in this soft, rich baritone. I think, ‘I have to change my career. I’ll become a bass player in a punk band.'”
