R.E.M. Manager Not Worried About Anti-War Song Backlash

manager Bertis Downs tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the band is currently in the studio recording and that the song represents “a work in progress that may emerge on a future project.” He added that he doesn’t see a Dixie Chicks-ish reaction looming to the group’s anti-war song ‘The Final Straw’. “If you read Michael’s statement, it’s hardly incendiary stuff. These guys generally go with their gut. It’s just their statement on these troubled times.” Accessatlanta.com has since removed the article.
