Stipe Glad To Contribute To Kerry Documentary

MICHAEL STIPE was proud to contribute a song to a documentary focusing on JOHN KERRY's life during the late 1960s and early 1970s, because he considers the defeated presidential candidate "a great leader".

The REM frontman was blown away by director GEORGE BUTLER's GOING UPRIVER: THE LONG WAR OF JOHN KERRY, and was honoured to lend further support to the defeated American election candidate.

Stipe says, "It shows Kerry for the man he became during the Vietnam era. My band were asked for, and proud to offer, a song to the score of this film.

"It's chilling to watch the genesis of a great leader - not giving up."
