The star admits he was "really honoured" to guest star onstage with his old pals...

REM frontman MICHAEL STIPE has revealed he was “really honoured” to join RADIOHEAD onstage at their VANCOUVER gig last month.

The REM appeared onstage with the band at Vancouver Thunderbird Stadium on August 30 to sing ‘Karma Police’. Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke had joined REM the night before at the same stadium to add vocals to ‘E-Bow The Letter’.

Now Stipe has revealed how thrilled he was in a post on REM‘s official website [url=]


He said: “They invited me up to sing ‘Karma Police’ and I was really honoured because NOBODY gets up with tha Radiohead. I did a good job on the chorus and danced around a little.

He added: “The best part of the show for me, favorites aside, was ‘A Wolf At The Door’ which was like watching a caterpillar chrysalis in varispeed and human form right before your eyes. Better than ‘Mimic’ and I really like that movie, especially Norman being ripped apart by a giant bug.”

REM‘s North American tour continues tonight (September 24) at Birmingham Oak Mountain Amphitheater, Alabama.
