    I really enjoyed this as I lived in Athens from 1995-1997 and would run into Michael and the fellas all over town, This was before cell phones or people carrying cameras. I lived on Finley St across from the tree that owned itself! Favorite memory was the foirst time I saw Michael Stipe at Guaranteed. After eating my veggie burger I worked up the nerve to appoach him at the register and said, "Thanks for the music"To which he replied, "You're welcome." no autograph or picture. Just a pure interaction of a gratefully starstruck fan and a musician! After that I would see him about town in his Volvo station wagon, at Jittery Joe's or the Globe. I always loved how nobody really paid them any mind. A pure and lovely time!
