R.E.M.- Automatic for the People 30th- Michael Stipe, Peter Buck, Mike Mills

R.E.M. singer/lyricist Michael Stipe, multi-instrumentalist/singer Mike Mills, and guitarist/songwriter Peter Buck all convene with me here In the Studio marking the thirtieth anniversary of "Automatic for the People" by R.E.M., estimated to have sold 18,000,000 copies worldwide because of "Man on the Moon","Everybody Hurts", & "Drive".

R.E.M.- Automatic for the People 30th- Michael Stipe, Peter Buck, Mike Mills 10-3

"It was substantially an uncommercial record," R.E.M. guitarist/songwriter Peter Buck insists here In the Studio on the 30th anniversary of 1992's "Automatic for the People", an eight million seller. "Except for the fact it was us, if that had been a band's first record, it wouldn't have gotten on the radio at all." Michael Stipe & Mike Mills join Peter here the week of 10/3.
