(Gibson) Michael Stipe has let us into one of the secrets of his songwriting. He writes his R.E.M. songs on his cell phone.

According to Music-News.com, he told Absolute Radio's Dave Gorman: "My notepad is my iPhone, and in fact I recorded and wrote this entire record on my phone. I love technology for that; it's so much easier than having scraps of paper everywhere. Of course I write lyrics that I hope would someday see the light of day, more times than not that never happens.

"I see things when I hear music and it's usually a landscape, and my job as the lyricist is to people that landscape with stories and with narrative and with ideas and with words." more on this story
