D

While presents contrast.
Contrast is Gordon's songs are under his name but initially he was a part of a band.

We need the underlined part to be a clause and hence we need a subject "he" here."he" refers back to Gordon.

Thank you.

Can anyone explain why C is incorrect? I think the two clause are independent and we require ", + FANBOY".

C is wrong because yet is unnecessary, is redundant

While Gordon Sumner is best known for the songs he composed under his stage name, as Sting, starting off as part of a three-member band, he started another band called The Police,

Actually, this is the meaning of the sentence.

Hope this helps.

Regards
