There’s no denying the sheer level of talent that both Michael Stipe and Mike Mills brought to R.E.M. However, with that talent came reoccurring self-doubt and insecurity, especially in Michael Stipe.
In this Big Interview sneak peek, Stipe tells Dan how he found comfort in the punk rock scene. As Stipe put it, “Music was the medium that pulled me out of this kind of morass of teenage self-questioning and placed me in a community.” He then goes on to talk about the importance of having insecurity as a means to tamper one’s ego.
Questioning Mike Mills’ own level of confidence, Dan asks “have you always sort of been a ‘sweet daddy cool’?” It’s clear that Mills now has quite the new nickname… Watch their full conversation on a new episode of The Big Interview, premiering Tuesday, November 28th at 9/8c on AXS TV.
