R.E.M. Call It A Day

"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. R.E.M.HQ: NEWS

R.E.M. will release a career-spanning Greatest Hits album through Warner Brothers in November.

I remember seeing them around 1982-83 when "Chronic Town" and "Murmur" came out. They played at a roller rink in Stony Brook, NY. Opening band was Dream Syndicate.
