No sé si es el fin del mundo o no, pero la noticia que ayer estaba en boca de todos, era el anuncio de la separacion de REM, el fin de REM, despues de un ultimo disco fabuloso "Collapsed into Now", a la altura de sus grandes discos...se separan por qué? Ese título era una premonición??
"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.
The group was originally made up of singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry, who left the band in 1997.
"I hope our fans realise this wasn't an easy decision; but all things must end, and we wanted to do it right, to do it our way," Stipe said as he announced the split.
