REM Makes Surprise Appearance In Oxford; 2007 Hall Of Fame Inductees Announced Today
REM made a surprise appearance in Oxford, UK last night at a Robyn Hitchcock show. Peter Buck has been performing with Hitchcock and his group The Venus 3 (whose lastest album you can read about here), and Michael Stipe and Mike Mills joined the party onstage, performing "Electrolyte" and an unreleased, as-yet unidentified song. Don't believe me? Ask Thom Yorke of Radiohead, he was there. Source: NME
The word is that REM began working on their next album this past September. Their nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame may turn into an induction very soon, as the inductees are to be named by press release sometime today.
