“We’ve talked about it,” Stipe told NME. “You have to be really patient.”
NME caught up with Stipe and Courtney at Love‘s home in Los Angeles to discuss everything: Kurt Cobain, that documentary, Andy Kaufman (Courtney is appearing in a film biopic called ‘Man In The Moon’; Kaufman inspired the REM song of the same name), how they met and more. They’ve been friends for a long time although famously in Nick Broomfield‘s ‘Kurt & Courtney’, one of Love‘s ex-boyfriends shows the filmmaker one of her lists of things to do to get famous – the top item is ‘Become friends with Michael Stipe‘. This is the first interview that they have ever given together.
