R.E.M. Reflect on Band’s History in Rare Interview



YouTube, @CBS Mornings.

In honor of their Thursday induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, R.E.M. got together for a rare interview.

The band — vocalist Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills, and drummer Bill Berry —spoke with “CBS Mornings” to reflect on their history as a band.

“You know, we lived or died on the strength of our songs. So this is a huge honor,” Buck said of the induction.

As far as how things have been since the band broke up in 2011, Stipe shared: “We’re also here to tell the tale, and we’re sitting at the same table together with deep admiration and … lifelong friendship. A lot of people that do this can’t claim that.”
