I’ve openly mentioned this quite a bit on Twitter over the years: I’m a huge R.E.M. fan. I’m probably as big of an R.E.M. fan as I am a U2 fan. As it turns out, R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe turns 62 — 62! — today.
Happy birthday, Michael! Thank you for music that has meant the world to me. And may there be many, many, many more!
