R.E.M. Calling it Quits After 31 Years

Posted on | September 22, 2011 | No Comments

I’ve was a big fan of R.E.M. for many years.  I’m a bit saddened that they are calling it quits.  My favorite albums are probably “Green”, “Automatic for the People” and “Out of Time.”  I stopped listening to their new music after the release of their album titled “Monster.”  They released numerous hits over the years.  I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of listening to their music.  Coincidentally, one of my all time favorite songs is titled “Photograph.”  It was a song that Michael Stipe and Natalie Merchant performed together.

31 years is a very long time for a band to stay together.  I hope I’ll be employable for that many years.  Michael Stipe’s networth is estimated to be at least $75 million.  Between their savings and their residual income from their music they should be fine financially.  I’m sure they’ll continue their political and social activism for many years to come.
