Thom and Neil

When Thom Yorke was 16, he sent a demo of one of his earliest recordings into a music magazine. „They said, ‚This guy sounds like Neil Young,'“ Yorke told the BBC in 2008. „I was like, ‚Who is Neil Young?'“ He went out to a record store and picked up After The Gold Rush. „I immediately fell in love with his music,“ said Yorke. „He has that soft vibrato that nobody else has. More than that, it was his attitude toward the way he laid songs down. It’s always about laying down whatever is in your head at the time and staying completely true to that, no matter what it is.“

Yorke has remained a big fan in the three decades since he picked up his first Neil Young record, and Radiohead has covered „Tell Me Why,“ „Cinnamon Girl“ and „After the Gold Rush“ in concert. In December of 2003, Yorke and Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood performed the title track to 1974’s On the Beach on the BBC’s Gideon Coe show.
