Berry Plays With Rem Again
Ex-REM drummer BILL BERRY played with his former band for the second time in a year over the weekend (01/02APR06). Berry took the stage alongside MICHAEL STIPE, PETER BUCK and MIKE MILLS, following a performance by Buck's side-project band THE MINUS 5 at the Georgia Theater in REM's Athens, Georgia hometown. The band then performed COUNTRY FEEDBACK, a track from their 1991 album OUT OF TIME. Berry, who quit REM in 1997, played bass as the song contains no drumming. Last October (05), Berry also reunited the original REM line-up for a seven song set at the wedding of the band's longtime guitar technician DEWITT BURTON.
