Stipe and Yorke, 1995

Stipe and Yorke, 1995

Yes, we know that this is a Radiohead site but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that after three decades, the members of R.E.M. have decided to break up. Radiohead and R.E.M. have a bit of history together that started when Thom and Co. were chosen to be the opening act for R.E.M. on their Monster tour in 1995. It was during that time that Thom Yorke and Michael Stipe became close friends; in particular, Stipe gave him advice on how to deal with the demands of being in a rock band.

We leave you with a few video highlights of Radiohead and R.E.M. after the jump.

god, this is SO gorgeous :lol:
kinda touching too, strangely.


it's a sad news, although they're breaking up with such class, undeniably.
can't imagine reading a similar news about RH in a future... I hope I won't. I hope they'll just last for ever : )

Well I just wasn't depressed enough apparently... D:


I remember being really upset when I thought Gorillaz were breaking up (turns out they weren't, it was just a rumor) and I'm sad now about the REM breakup but Radiohead parting ways would be too much.

Fuck liking shit, I don't even like the shit that I like, and I don't give a fuck about not liking all the shit I don't like


Their music isn't bath friendly........try listening to TKOL in there without spashing the whole bathroom....or Kid A without drowning yourself during HTDC. Rubbish.



ahahahahaha what the fuck is wrong with people

I hope that day (radiohead breaking up) never comes. If they do decide to quit, they should just not tell anyone.



So sad about R.E.M :( I wonder what Thom is thinking and feeling. Are they still good friends? Stipe and Thom

I guess. He was at the Atoms For Peace show in New York last year. Before the show I saw Thom greet him with a hug on the balcony level.

good to know that he still catches up with his older homies. I wonder what Thom thinks about Stipe posting naked pics of himself :wacko:

Michael and Thom are still great friends. They really love each other. I'm sure the Rhead guys are sad about the break up too. I have been down since the breakup. R.E.M. are my favorite band. I've seen them 27 times. I didn't expect this to happen not so soon. I really thought they would have continued on at least a few more years. A final tour would have been a better way to say goodbye to us long time hardcore fans.

If it wasn't for Michael Stipe I wouldn't even know Radiohead. He talked about them in so many interviews in 1998. Michael mentioned how good OK Computer is. So that was the first album I bought. Now Radiohead are my Second Favorite band.
I'm gonna miss this band always.
