Sting has sent out a warning to fans of videogame Rock Band - it won't turn them into real musicians, because he is terrible at it.
The former Police frontman has provided a number of his hits for the game, which allows fans to perform using artificial instruments.
But he insists it's no true measure of musical ability.
Sting reveals, "I contributed to it. They used a few of my songs. It's good for kids to get into music, but I do wonder if playing the game actually makes you want to play a real guitar. I don't know if it correlates.
"I've tried it, and I can't do it."
