Michael Stipe was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about his new photography book, Our Interference Times, but topics also turned to other things, like his decision to return to music after a decade exploring visual art, Greta Thunberg, Extinction Rebellion, his favorite Radiohead song, and the time he told Donald Trump to shut up at a Patti Smith concert because he was talking too loud.
