Angel of the North and Sting

Angel of the North by Antony Gormley

It took a long time for locals to like this now famous landmark known locally by some as "rusty reg or rusty rita". There's something VERY comforting going back home and seeing it. I suppose not unlike New Yorkers who know they're home when they see the Statue of Liberty.

 It's Sting's 60th birthday today, and since he's another Geordie, here's hoping you have a canny one pet.

Here's a pic of him unveiling artwork he commissioned for the Laing Art Gallery

Painting is by Stephen Hannock

In it you can see the Sage (the slug) where Sting has performed.
