Old man don’t lay so still, you’re not yet young

Michael Stipe, of Athens, turns 52 years old today and I am officially old.

Enjoy. There’s more after the jump.

    Great post.

    Proud to have been at one the last times the original 4 played together live at the 40 Watt back in 2006.

    Yeah, even during not-football season, Athens is part of Georgia, and Messrs. Stipe, Mills, Buck, Berry and Downs have had more influence in the politics and landscape of Clarke County and Athens over the last twenty years than anyone. At the very least, there still would be a City of Athens instead of a Unified Government without the support of rem/Athens Ltd.
    Also, our two business for export are higher education and rock ‘n’ roll. So saying that Stipe’s birthday doesn’t matter to Athens would be like saying a Callaway’s birthday doesn’t matter to LaGrange.
