Kathryn (Kmarie) - , reviewed R.E.M. : The Rolling Stone Files : The Ultimate Compendium of Interviews, Articles, Facts, and Opinions from the Files of Rolling Stone on + 526 more book reviews
DeCurtis and the editors of Rolling Stone chart the band's rise to fame and the personalities and influences which have led to their success. Enjoy a fine blend of in-depth interviews and associates' opinions, blending band history with a compendium of music and album facts. This book should be on the bookshelf of every R.E.M. fan. It is jam packed with all kinds of information about the band. I only wish that the book included glossy photo's of the band. The book covers the band from the time period of 1982's "Chronic Town" to 1994's "Monster". Overall, if you are an R.E.M. fan buy the book you will not be disappointed!
