SHOULD HAVE LEFT IN '87:

R.E.M., Alt-Rock Progenitor, Calls It Quits (JAMES C. McKINLEY Jr., 9/21/11, NY Times)

R.E.M., the underground band from Athens, Ga., that helped invent the alternative-rock sound of the 1980s, announced Wednesday its members were splitting up after 31 years of making music together.

"A wise man once said 'The skill in attending a party is knowing when it's time to leave,' " Michael Stipe, the group's lead singer and lyricist, said in a statement posted on the band's Web site.


Document was a great album, but the last good one.
