Stipe, a Georgia native who recorded R.E.M.'s Automatic For The People in New Orleans 14 years ago, has strong feelings about the disaster and its aftermath. "The news cycle has moved on and I don't want the public to forget about those who were affected by Katrina or to believe that everything is fine now," he says.
"Things are not fine. The storm is still impacting people's lives in a very real way and many have been left desperate. I want to remind each of us that as humans, and certainly as Americans, it is out responsibility to help those in need."
