Michael Stipe has become a regular at his friend Partrik Ervell's runway shows, but he doesn't wear the label. "I'm a 49 year old man. I don't think that would be appropriate," he said. The REM front man (now sporting a full beard) has been sculpting since the band finished a long tour, he said. Last year he exhibited his bronze sculpures at Rogan's store, and now he's working with silver.
