    NME.com reports that former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck is working on his debut solo album, according to his friend Scott McCaughey. REM broke up last year.

    McCaughey, Buck's Minus 5 bandmate and frequent R.E.M. collaborator, was doing an interview with a Seattle radio station when he revealed that he was in town to work on the record with the guitarist.

    McCaughey also hinted that Buck might sing on the album. He did not sing with R.E.M. ...ever. Even if he sings on record, Buck won't sing live.

    The only news McCaughey shared was that it likely would come out on vinyl, with no intention of it being available as a download.

    Hey, R.E.M. fans, you wanna hear Peter Buck solo?
