Reckoning was my intro to R.E.M.
My best friend in high school told me she and some of her friends were driving from Greenville to Charlotte to see this band called R.E.M. and I should go. I really hadn’t listened a lot to them but I was game so off to Charlotte. Over the past 25 years I’m not sure I can count the number of times and miles I have driven to see the band but I still listen to every album, I still go to every show I can get to, and I am introducing my kids to the music now too which makes me feel old.
I have lost track of my best friend from high school. So Julie Ferguson if you are out there thanks for the R.E.M. memories you gave me!!!!!
