REM frontman Michael Stipe has hinted that he may move to England if Republican John McCain is elected US President.
Stipe, a well documented supporter of Democratic hopeful Barack Obama, said it is “unfathomable” that anyone would vote for Mr McCain.
"He served his country and he did a good job as a serviceman, I will honour him for that, but he is not presidential material,” he told Sky News.
When asked what he would do if Mr McCain was elected, Stipe replied: "Well I'd have to move to England".
His comments come hours after Mr McCain unveiled Alaskan Sarah Palin as his running mate.
Joesph Biden will stand alongside Mr Obama as he bids to become America’s first black President.
Stipe and the rest of REM will perform at London’s Twickenham Stadium tonight.
