Thom Yorke tells students the music business will fold within 'months'
Radiohead man admits that it will be 'no great loss to the world'
In an interview for a new high school textbook, The Rax Active Citizen Toolkit, the Radiohead man claims that the music industry is dying, reports ThisIsLondon.co.uk.
"[It'll be] only a matter of time," Yorke says. "Months rather than years before the music business establishment completely folds."
Advising aspiring musicians not to tie themselves to such a "sinking ship", Yorke adds that the fall of the music business will be "no great loss to the world".
The textbook, which is due out on July 1 and is written by Jamie Kelsey, also features interviews with Ms Dynamite and broadcaster Jon Snow, and is aimed at helping 15 and 16-year-olds become more politically literate.
