What do you think of Mike Mills of REM? I used to really love their early stuff. But listening back again (after playing bass myself), his playing kind of surprises me. There is something unusual about it. His tone is kind of unusual too, being kind of high and prominent with his Rickenbacker. His approach is something I don't understand. But I think it probably had a lot to do with their greatness in the early days. I can't put my finger on what it is about his style. I know that he was undoubtedly the most skillful musician in the band, and probably a better guitarist all around than Peter Buck. I'd appreciate any thoughts about his playing.
