Phew, what a weekend it was! While we were entertained by a certain Mr Michael Stipe in London, across the pond his R.E.M. bandmates rocked Georgia! Namely, The Baseball Project (Scott McCaughey, Peter Buck, Steve Wynn and Linda Pitmon) are currently touring the U.S. to promote their second album; over the weekend they played in Atlanta and Athens, where they were joined by a host of friends. Friends’ names? Well… how about Mike Mills, Bill Berry (!!!), John Keane, and Kevn Kinney and Tim Nielsen (of the Drivin n Cryin fame)? Anyway, several friends attended these gigs; Linda and Mark have already sent their reports and/or photos, and I’m hoping to have everything ready for your viewing and reading pleasure by tomorrow morning!
While I’m busy resizing and uploading photos, adding new webpages etc., here’s an assortment of recent Mike Mills interviews from various magazines – as you all know, Mike was doing press rounds to promote R.E.M.’s newest album Collapse Into Now:
And here’s a beautiful live-in-the-studio version of “Every Day Is Yours To Win”.
