    R.E.M. have broken up, but don't expect a solo effort or offering from singer Michael Stipe anytime soon. Ex-guitarist Mike Mills commented on his former bandmate, saying, "I don't think that music is where his passion lies. I think he wants to be in the visual arts. I imagine Michael will do a lot of sculpture and photography. I think those are his big interests now" to Mojo.

    R.E.M. were together for 31 awesome-tastic years.
