Accelerate This Way

Two short items by me went up in recent days on the Rolling Stone website: a review of R.E.M.’s show last week at the Hollywood Bowl and an item on Joe Perry writing the music for “Walk This Way” (part of the “100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time” package).

I am pleased to report that Perry still has a strong Boston accent.

The R.E.M. setlist in full:
Pretty Persuasion
Living Well Is the Best Revenge
What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?
Sitting Still
Man-Sized Wreath
Circus Envy
Hollow Man
Fall on Me
Final Straw
I’ve Been High
Let Me In
Losing My Religion
Horse to Water
Bad Day
Walk Unafraid
I’m Gonna DJ

Supernatural Superserious
The One I Love
Until The Day Is Done
Happy Birthday to You
Man On The Moon

(Hollywood Bowl, 29 May 2008)
