After having a lasagna Sting's manager gave a The Soul Cages DAT cassette to Vinnie to which he listened to for about forty-five minutes. Then they sat down to play some songs, the first being Every Breath You Take and then some other Police material. Then they played The Soul Cages songs. all in all about 90 minutes - just Sting, Dominic Miller, and Vinnie.

A day and a half later he was confirmed as Sting's new drummer. Vinnie went to England, the new band rehearsed for five days. About two days into rehearsal, Peter Gabriel showed up and they rehearsed for the upcoming Amnesty concerts in South America.
