So...Stipe was never not a prima donna? I hate that prick with a passion. Great singer. Great lyricist. Memorable front-man dance. Which he doesn't seem to have quite developed yet, here.
From the same Letterman episode:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KA57Pafq_NUAWESOME
Stipe is pretty much a whiny wiener, as far as I can tell. I never quite forgave him for that crack he made once about the Beatles meaning nothing to music.Of course, the only one of the band I have actually met (however briefly) was Peter Buck and he seemed like a total asshole. He was touring with Robyn Hitchcock, who was really gracious and pleasant.
Of course, Stipe can make anything sound like a hymn:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKKMlUUnw0w
Stipe's life is a hymn.TO SATAN.
And the proof: Bill Gates on guitar and backup vocal, in the clip you linked to. Bill + Mike singing = gorgeous harmonies, man!
