Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien in Dublin, Friday June 6. O’Brien rarely contributes much to the band’s songwriting process, although he has had a few notable successes, such as penning the intro riff to ‘The Bends” closing track ‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’.
Radiohead’s two nights at Dublin’s Malahide Castle were heavy on material from 2007’s ‘In Rainbows’, which Thom Yorke has descibed as being an album of "seduction songs". NME said ‘In Rainbows’ found "Radiohead reconnecting with their human sides, realising you [can] embrace pop melodies and proper instruments while still sounding like paranoid androids."
Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood. The softly-spoken guitarist was once asked if he ever had sex with groupies. He recoiled in horror, explaining: "Sex is a fairly disgusting sort of tufted, smelly-area kind of activity, which is too intimate to engage in with strangers."
Jonny Greenwood swaps guitar for drums, live in Dublin, June 6. Radiohead’s youngest member at 36, he once declared that 1997’s ‘OK Computer’ was over-rated: "I don’t think it’s that good an album, really, There are good songs on it but there are songs that just sound like dead ends."
