Peter Müller says:

Grosser Musiker.

Pj Loco says:

This is no longer about being politically inclined, this is about decency, I think that when Trump said drain the swamp he meant drain the swamp so the legion of doom wouldn’t have to hover over it to get some air….

John truth says:

Brilliant both of you and all your team.

mattmoose says:

Bless you, Michael, you are a beautiful soul. Thank you. Namaste.

MrBubyV says:

The Majority of:
“Politicians” are & always have been Hypocrites. Everything is just amplified ,…nowadays 📲
FACT:
Everyone has a video camera in their pocket… “NEWS” & information is instant,.. & Our world is just a whole lot smaller now. 🤷🏽‍♂️

MEMO:

🗣 WE DIDN’T START THE FIRE, ITS ALWAYS BEEN BURNING SINCE THE WORLDS BEEN TURNING 🌍 🔥
(Billy Joel) was right!

Mike says:

Did you see this liar? Can you believe people are voting for this guy? https://youtu.be/1SofNxTjY-Q

Dave Shannon says:

Imagine Michael Stipe telling you he's a fan of yours!

Adam Dennis says:

Stipe is a very nice guy. Athens, Ga!

zerooskul says:

Trumpty Dumbty ran on a wall
Trumpty Dumbty reigned in fee fall
And all of our futures,
In spite of his claims,
Were dumped on by Trumpty
And flushed down the drain

john bannister says:

This is all very well, but what are you guys going to do about in in November? The UK waits nervously

ReubenBlackUK says:

…typical musicians no substance just flimsy and fragile and self hating..

royston mason says:

exuming mccarthy is one of my favorite R.E.M. songs

Kam Harmon says:

Oooh – "insofar as" …

LJ says:

It makes me sad that as much as I have always loved Michael and REM, I feel isolated from them due to politics.

Billy Boy says:

What a sweet guy!

Dreams R Lies says:

Does Michael Stipe age, cuz I’ve been a fan since I wouldn’t even recognize myself but he looks EXACTLY THE SAME. WTF?! 😂

Herman Klump says:

He’s a sack of lies and something else.

Constance Shaw says:

A TRUE REMINDER
Trump having known the dangers of coronavirus and opting to downplay it to the American people!
SO DO SOMETHING ON OUR STIMULUS $$
It's your fault DJT not the
AMERICAN PEOPLE!!

Sara B says:

I don't think I'd be able to handle meeting Michael Stipe. R.E.M. was the very first band I got MEGA into and his voice still shoots through my heart and soul unlike most other artists do. He's like my cool, weird, art/ alternative dad who just does his own thing.
Like right now, where he seems to be living in the mansion from Edward Scissorhands.

kees abel says:

TRUMP 2020 OUR SAVIOR!

Craig Gee says:

Michael crying for Hal is so touching.

Snaggle Toothed says:

6:27-"Compliments-from-Al."-WTF-is-'Al'?

Adieu says:

Woooow this guy looks depressed

John Blake says:

there's a yellow dot on Stipe's right arm…. Any thoughts on Stipe's background? a typewriter…what is that behind the typewriter? there's some yellow in that to match Stipe's shirt. Otherwise, we're talking all grey and black….and so many other interesting shapes, sculptures and other things in the background…

daibar says:

I guess Trump is not his Orange Crush?

Celtic Batman says:

REM is still one of my favorite bands of all time, and I cannot wait to hear more of his solo work

Old Wight says:

I hear Michael is unhappy with Governor Brian Kemp, who was slow to bring in some COVID restrictions and then fast to lift them. I tell you what, we will send Victoria's Premier Daniel Andrews to Georgia, and you can send us Brian Kemp. In Victoria recently a pregnant mum was arrested in her jim jams in front of her kids by Andrews' coppers, for organising an anti lockdown protest on Facebook. A new Act Andrews wants to bring in will allow private citizens to be authorised to detain other citizens on apprehension of reasonable likelihood to breach restrictions. Give me the conservative Republican who believes in personal responsibility over the dishonest pro China socialist authoritarian, any day of the week.
