It's fitting that Mike Mills has plans to celebrate Record Store Day in Maine at Bull Moose in Scarborough on April 19. The former bassist for R.E.M. and co-writer of some of the band's most enduring songs makes a point to seek out the best music stores in most every town he visits. 

'I still go into Wuxtry Records in Athens,' Mills told me in a phone interview. R.E.M's Peter Buck was behind the counter at Wuxtry 35 years ago when Michael Stipe was a frequent customer. The store was a catalyst in the formation of one of rock's most influential bands. 'I've been to Mississippi Records in Portland, Oregon. I was in Amoeba in Los Angeles not long ago. I hit record stores whenever I can,' Mills said.
