R.E.M. - Rockpalast - October 2, 1985

R.E.M. have disbanded. It's my feeling they come from that great tradition of American music which tells the truth, is sympathetic to the down trodden and champions those without a voice. R.E.M. always did that and are a credit to their country. That's quite hard to achieve consistently over decades rather than years. It's authentic.
