R.I.P. R.E.M. Band call it a day after more than 30 years

I know this isn’t Radiohead news, though after being a band for more than 30 years, R.E.M. “have decided to call it a day”.  R.E.M. were a big influence to Radiohead and they have played together several times.

“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.

Here are some videos of R.E.M. and Radiohead
