THOM YORKE Will Not Attend RADIOHEAD’s Rock Hall Induction: Rolling Stone
After weeks of speculation about whether Radiohead will show up for their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, Thom Yorke has confirmed that he will NOT be attendance for the ceremony in Brooklyn in March.
When asked by Variety if he was going, Yorke said he had a previous engagement performing piano pieces in Paris, and then added, “we’ve always been very blasé about that stuff [like the Hall Of Fame]… So we don’t want to offend anyone. We just think that we don’t quite understand it.”
Although Yorke can’t attend the induction, he’s keeping his calendar open for the Oscars – the song he wrote for the movie “Suspiria” was shortlisted in the Best Original Song category.

Hear CHESTER BENNINGTON on MARK MORTON’s New Solo Album: Loudwire
One of Chester Bennington’s final vocal recordings has been released, a year and a half after his passing. The Linkin Park frontman had laid down a track for Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton’s solo album Anesthetic before he took his own life in July of 2017.
Bennington’s song is called “Cross Off”, and you can hear it below. Mark Morton says: “He’s got one of those once-in-an-eon-existence voices. It’s unmistakable. So emotive as well. Very personal and very unique.”
Other vocalists who appear on the album include Myles Kennedy, Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach, and Morton’s bandmate Randy Blythe. It’ll be available on March 1st.
