REM finishes on a 'high'
REM believe that they were "not creatively out of gas" when they split.
The Man on the Moon rockers' bass player, Mike Mills, says their split in September has seen them finish "on a creative high" and he is glad he will remain friends with Michael Stipe and Peter Buck.
He told The Daily Beast: "It seems amicable because it is. We are not creatively out of gas. We are not pissed off at each other. There are no issues. The whole point of it is we're walking away on a creative high and on our own terms."
REM revealed their decision to split after the band's fifteenth album Collapse Into Now.
