R.E.M. on the Side



R.E.M. Guitarist Peter Buck is a busy boy these days. Teamed with Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol) for what they say is a ‘country-tinged’ album, calling themselves Tired Pony.

While out in the wilderness of Oregon/Washington area, Peter sat in with the Decemberists too for three songs on their new album due in February. Colin Meloy cites R.E.M. as a pretty big influence for the new album. How cool is that? To get someone who influenced your work to play on your work?
