Thank You R.E.M. (1980-2011)

21 Sep

R.E.M. decided to call it quits today.

“To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening.” R.E.M.

People often ask me what my “All Time Favorite Band Is?” This is not an easy question to answer, but R.E.M. has always been near the top of a very short list.

Thank you Bill, Mike, Peter, and Michael, for making memories that I return to… “Time after time!
