Rock & Roll History: Sting, Daughter Eliot Sumner Each Hit Billboard Radio Chart with Separate Singles


Here’s a rock & roll first, a bit of history for the books: Sting, and his daughter Eliot Sumner, have hit a Billboard chart simultaneously and separately with their retrospective new singles. Sting’s song is “I Can’t Stop Thinking about You.” Daughter Eliot’s (her name is Eliot Paulina Sumner, aka to friends “Coco”) is “After Dark.” A weird and happy coincidence! The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! And both songs are incredibly catchy.
