R.E.M. (* 1980 – † 2011)

“To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening.” R.E.M.

Danke Jungs, für ewig wichtige Alben wie “Automatic For The People” und “New Adventures In Hi-Fi” und selbst Eure  eher mauen 00er Alben vergessen wir im Moment des Abschieds. Warum man nach 31 Jahren allerdings nicht mehr als lahme Plattitüden wie “Wie gehen als Freunde” und “Wir haben alles erreicht und der Moment fühlte sich richtig an…”  raushaut, sei mal dahin gestellt und deutet auf ein relativ große Müdigkeit der Band hin. Sehr schade ist es natürlich trotzdem und wer mag kann unsere R.E.M. Retrospektive anschauen.

R.I.P. White Stripes (1997-2011)

The White Stripes would like to announce that today, February 2nd, 2011,
their band has officially ended and will make no further new recordings or perform live.

The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any
health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health.

It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve What is beautiful and special about
the band and have it stay that way.

Meg and Jack want to thank every one of their fans and admirers for the incredible
support they have given throughout the 13 plus years of the White Stripes’ intense and
incredible career.

Third Man Records will continue to put out unreleased live and studio recordings from
The White Stripes in their Vault Subscription record club, as well as through regular

Both Meg and Jack hope this decision isn’t met with sorrow by their fans but that it is
seen as a positive move done out of respect for the art and music that the band has
created. It is also done with the utmost respect to those fans who’ve shared in those
creations, with their feelings considered greatly.

With that in mind the band have this to say:

“The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong
to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is
that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your
involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful.”
