    schema:description "For the last quarter of a century, Michael Stipe has been the lead singer of R.E.M., one of Indie rock's biggest success stories of the 1980s. From humble beginnings, R.E.M. toured and built a steadily growing legion of fans before breaking into the mainstream during the early 1990s, and they did it all on their own terms. Today, Stipe is one of the most instantly recognisable faces in rock and R.E.M. are held in a respect that only 25 years of excellent song writing and hard work can justify. But Stipe is much more than just the singer in an enormously successful rock band. When not writing, rehearsing or performing with R.E.M., Stipe has a keen interest in film making, from pop videos and independent shorts to producing big budget full-length movies; he is keenly interested in politics, he led high profile endorsements of the Democratic party in recent elections and for many years has been a champion of environmental concerns."@en ;
