Formed in Athens, Georgia in 1980 by singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills, and drummer Bill Berry, R.E.M. is widely considered to be one of the leading pioneers of alternative rock. Following years of underground success in the early to mid-’80s, the band hit it big in 1987 with the single “The One I Love”. They spent the next few years atop the charts thanks to a string of smash hit albums, including 1991′s Out of Time, 1992′s Automatic for the People, and 1994′s Monster. But after their acclaimed 1997 LP, New Adventures in Hi-Fi, Berry left the band, leaving the group with a collection of polarizing efforts, namely 2004′s Around the Sun. In 2008, however, Stipe, Buck, and Mills turned heads with the critically-acclaimed Accelerate, and again with their most recent LP, this year’s Collapse Into Now.
Yesterday (9.21.11) the Alt/Rock world stood still as R.E.M.’s break up was made official on the bands website, this is what was posted:
“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.”
