Michael Stipe, Brian Eno & Stephen Colbert "Lean on Me" (live on 'Colbert Report')
Published Nov 11, 2011Michael Stipe may have decided to throw in the R.E.M. towel, but that isn't stopping him from hobnobbing with other A-list musicians. Last night (November 10), that took the form of Stipe appearing on the Colbert Report with Brian Eno and doing a sing-along performance of "Lean on Me," of all things.

And while Stipe's "acting" chops may still be a bit tough to swallow, it's always good to hear Eno exercise those often-dormant pipes of his, even if it's just for a cover of "Lean of Me."
