R.E.M.: 3/4ths of a Reunion

Peter Buck,Mike Mills and Bill Berry of R.E.M. were joined by members of other Georgia bands for a six-song mini-set at the Revival: Celebrating Georgia's Historic Theater benefit at the Fox Theater in Atlanta on Friday.

The bands included Drivin' N Cryin',The Georgia Satellites,The Brains,Pylon and Drive-by Truckers, as well as musician-producers John Keane and Dave Barbe and Bill Berry's son,Owen.

Fan shot video of "The One I Love" was posted on YouTube over the weekend.

 

Setlist:

  1. "Fall on Me" (with Kevn Kinney of Drivin' N Cryin', Owen Berry and John Keane)
  2. "The One I Love" (with Kinney, Owen Berry)
  3. "Battleship Chains" (Georgia Satellites song, with Rick Richards of The Georgia Satellites, Owen Berry, Kevn Kinney and Patterson Hood of Drive-by Truckers)
  4. "Crazy" (Willie Nelson song, with Vanessa Briscoe Hay of Pylon) 
  5. "Money Changes Everything" (Brains song, withTom Gray of The Brains)
  6. "Texarkana" (with Barbe, Keane and Jay Gonzalez of Drive-By Truckers)

Hot Takes:

  • Too bad Michael Stipe didn't participate.
  • They probably wouldn't have agreed to do it if he was there, because they've been adamantly against a full band reunion.
  • It's still nice that three of them made it out.

Mix Morning Show!
