Remarks :: The Story of R.E.M.
Softcover book by Tony Fletcher
Copyright 1990 |
" The First Full Biography of the American Band of the Nineties"
" Hailed as "America's Best Rock & Roll Band" by Rolling Stone
magazine, R.E.M. is the underground success story of the decade, the most
respected American band of a generation.
In an age of cultivated
image and high-gloss production, R.E.M. has proved that it is possible to
follow natural instincts, maintain integrity, and achieve more than it
ever dreamed possible."
" In this, the first full biography of R.E.M., noted rock critic
Tony Fletcher follows the group from its humble origins in an abandoned
church in collegiate Athens, Georgia, to the band's current status as
worldwide headliners, and explores R.E.M.'s appeal in the context of its
time and place."
" Drawing on dozens of interviews with friends, associates, and band
members themselves, richly illustrated and with a comprehensive discography,
Remarks is not just the document of one group's rise through cult
status, but also is the story of American rock in the 1980s."
