The author follows the story of R.E.M. from its humble origins in Athens, Georgia, to their status as a leading world-wide act, all the while placing the allure of their appeal in the context of its time and place. Drawing on dozens of interviews with friends, associates and the band members themselves, this is not just the story of one group's rise through cult status, but the story of American rock in the 1980s. This edition brings the band's story right up-to-date, covering the departure of drummer Bill Berry, Michael Stipe's increasing role as a spokesman for humane causes, and the group's music right up to their "Reveal" album.
