Andy Summers limited edition Leica camera confirmed


Yesterday I reported about a new Andy Summers limited edition Leica camera - I can now confirm this rumor, here are two quotes from a recent Sonicscoop interview with Andy Summers:

"With so many expressions available to Andy Summers, that’s the one he puts first. But it can’t be an easy selection process, when this renaissance man has so many talents to choose from: literary (his memoir One Train Later is an addictive read), photographic (Leica just created a signature camera for him), filmmaker, family man.

I mean, for me, actually it’s a good year this year. I’ve got this record out. It’s going well. I got a signature camera being made by Leica. I should have very nice photo book out later in the year, and then also Fender making a new guitar for me, as well as a nice tour in Brazil and going back to China to play some stuff there. So yeah, it’s looking pretty good."

Who is Andy Summers:

"Andrew James Somers (born 31 December 1942), known professionally as Andy Summers, is an English guitarist who was a member of the rock band the Police. Summers has recorded solo albums, collaborated with other musicians, composed film scores, and exhibited his photography in galleries." (Wikipedia)

Andy Summers has been featured multiple times on the official Leica Camera blog. He recently released his latest album “Triboluminescence (see cover above).
