Hi, I was wondering if any of R.E.M. are left-handed? Also how many left-handed fans are there out there? write here!

Michael Stipe is left-handed! You can notice that easily in their 2 videos: "At my most beautiful" and "Talk about the passion". Hope this helps!

Michael has also said that as a child he often wrote backwards, which is typical of lefties. He can also be seen using his left hand in REM ABC (from Parallel) under "I" for itinerary.

My wee sister is left-handed!! So her art is pretty exceptional for her age, but then again, so is mine, and I'm no leftie!!

i read in an "unofficial" rem book that michael was left handed and that he wrote backwards. i never believed it. just thought the book was trying to make him out to be strange.

I think being left-handed is something special I am lefthanded and proud of it!:-)

Anna - there was a girl called Anna who was left-handed and used to go to my old school. She left around christmas, wouldn't it be amazing if this was you!

i read somewhere (don't ask me where) that michael was both right and left handed. what do they call it? ambi-something or other! i'm probably completely wrong (sigh, as always). &=^)
