Even Sting wonders about the gulf oil leak

British rock star Sting says like everyone, he's paying attention to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and wonders why such a deep well was approved to begin with.

"The problem in the first place is what were they doing drilling that deep without any safeguards? Who allowed that to happen?" Sting said of the spill.

The BP well has been spewing millions of gallons of oil since the rig exploded on April 20.

Sting was preparing Thursday for a second night at Denver's Red Rocks Amphitheatre as part of his tour with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.  He stopped by the Denver Art Museum to look at a painting of southern Colorado's Mount Blanca by his friend Stephen Hannock, whose work he collects.
