This is a very basic template to use for articles about people. You can add header sections as you feel necessary in order to properly illustrate this subject, for instance regarding professional career, personal life, charitable projects, etc. However, lengthy or detailed sub-sections probably deserve their own article in that person's category on the Wiki, with just a link added in this article. Be sure to replace the text in ALL CAPS with the appropriate information.

If this person does not have their own category on the wiki, place the article in [[Category:People (Artist/band name)]], where "Artist/band name" is the appropriate category (that is, is the person relevant to Stewart Copeland's history, or The Police as a whole? Etc.)
