Heroes III

My third hero in row is Mr. Michael Stipe. I talked about him and R.E.M. already at length on this blog, so there’s not much for me left to say. Somehow I never really came to know much about Stipe, although he always was in my life somehow. It was not until the last couple of weeks that I started to read a lot about him and the band and trying to understand more about all this. A strange thing somehow, to be able to call somebody your hero without knowing much about him. But somehow that worked out quite well – maybe it was more about what his music and his appearance triggered in me, than what his lifestyle would have told me. A different kind of hero, but nonetheless my hero.
