“Radiohead have become one of those few bands who make you feel privileged to know and love them. They are not a band you can either take or leave. This is music which forces the listener to commit him or herself totally and forever. The reward for such devotion is that you will be taken away into another world.”
Q: If that sad day comes along when Radiohead split up, what do you plan to do in your retirement?
Thom: Age badly. Follow random pathways in the forest. Smoke a pipe. Become a hermit. Never shave again. Take Ecstasy on weekends. Develop a Valium habit. Read the Bible. Go to Tibet. Become an MP (member of the parliament). Change my name. Laugh at economists. Start skanking dancehall style.
