REM 'Calls It a Day"

Alternative rockers from Athens, Georgia, REM has decided to call it quits according to a statement released by the band's website. This is the statement....

"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.

In a statement by bassist Mike Mills: "We have always been a band in the truest sense of the word. Brothers who truly love and respect each other. We feel kind of like pioneers in this -- there's no disharmony here, no falling-outs, no lawyers squaring off. We've made this decision together, amicably and with each other's best interests at heart."

My hat's off the band and I wish them luck in whatever they do....
