1 Review
The voices of nearly sixty R.E.M. insiders - friends, musicians, producers, and industry colleagues - comprise an unusual, unadulterated history of one of rock's most innovative, integrity-driven bands. Besides new photos and an updated discography, the author has added two new chapters that discuss recent events: the making of Monster and New Adventures in Hi-Fi; the band's first world tour in five years; drummer Bill Berry's aneurysm and departure from the band; the controversial dismissal of R.E.M.'s manager Jefferson Ho
