Author Robert Dean Lurie is one of the latest writers to dive into the early days of the Athens, GA band, R.E.M. with the new book "Begin The Begin." The advantage that Robert has, is that he knows the area and the lore of how the band formed, back in the late 1970s. The beginning of the legacy is when Bill Berry meet Mike Mills in high school, before attending the University of Georgia together, kind of like when John Lennon met Paul McCartney, and they say the rest is history. Well, this book examines that history.
