AUDIO: R.E.M.'s Peter Buck and Mike Mills (1992)
Ira Robbins, Rock's Backpages audio, 17 August 1992
Messrs. Buck and Mills talks about making Automatic For The People: how they write; the optimal length of an album; Stipe as a lyricist, and the album track-by-track. They also reflect on their 10-year career; the R.E.M. organisation; parallels with U2; how they measure success; touring... or not; working with the Troggs, and Robyn Hitchcock; Peter Holsapple's relationship with the band; being out of place at the Grammies, and their Desert Island Discs.
