Extremely rare interview alert- wow.
R.E.M reunited the band for their first group interview in nearly 30 years.

The went on CBS Mornings (this morning) as they've just been inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. All four founding members got together to discuss the honor as well as the band's breakup and more.

"You know, we lived or died on the strength of our songs. So this is a huge honor," Buck said of being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame alongside fellow 2024 inductees Hillary Lindsey, Timothy "Timbaland" Mosley, Dean Pitchford and Steely Dan. Country music star Cindy Walker was posthumously inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame this year.
"It is the hardest thing that we do. And it's the thing that we've worked on the most from the very beginning," Mills added.
The band formed at the University of Georgia in Athens. At the beginning of their career, Berry said they wrote songs as fast as they could "just to put food on the table."
