What’s in a name?…

Chris Anderson, erstwhile editor of Wired magazine, member of the technological elite and author recounts a story about early 80′s hair, a battle of bands, and how he was nearly in REM.

Fantastic, I’d have loved to be there. Funnily enough just the other day I dug out my copy of Green by REM (disclaimer, I get a few pennies if you buy from that link) which may or may not be their best album, but I enjoyed it immensely anyway.
