Wow, after 31 years together REM yesterday announced they have broken up. I remember seeing them in 1981 at The Moonshadow in Atlanta for their IRS Records signing party. Back then they only had their EP, "Chronic Town". That was some show! Maybe it's for the best that they've broken up and even though their last cd released in March was the critics darling, I personally loved their work from the '80's and early '90's. Thank you for the memories, REM.
