REM bassist Mike Mills has revealed that he doesn't expect former frontman Michael Stipe to release any solo material in the near future. The band announced their official split last month after 31 years together. The guitarist said that he believes that Stipe is more likely to work with art and photography instead of making music in the next chapter of his career. He told Mojo:
"I don't think that [music] is where his passion lies. I think he wants to be in the visual arts. I imagine Michael will do a lot of sculpture and photography. I think those are his big interests now."
