I saw REM in a little club in Atlanta in 1983 and they were great. It was a benefit, though, and so they played a lot of covers. I saw them a couple of years later in the Fox Theater and they just couldn’t get their sound right. It was a shame.

The worst show was when they were touring for Green in ‘88. By Stipe’s own admission, he was in the middle of a nervous breakdown.

At one point he started haranguing the audience for drinking Coors out of styrofoam coolers.
