Thom Yorke - Radiohead & Trading Solo

John Blake Publishing, 26 févr. 2009 - 300 pages
Radiohead is a band with few peers - acclaimed, multi-platinum-selling, globe-trotting and a critics’ favourite. At the epicentre are the strangely compelling and yet unusual features of their mercurial lead singer, Thom Yorke, one of rock music’s most enigmatic personalities. This is the first ever biography of Yorke... The tale of the extraordinary drive, ambition and perfectionism of just one man. Thom Yorke’s personal story has never been told and this biography tells that tale with the help of in-depth interviews from former classmates, previous band members, producers and video makers and other key players in his life. This biography chronicles his remarkable life from the formative childhood experiences as a public schoolboy that first shaped his songs, through to each Radiohead album - from his perspective - as well as his solo work and expansive charitable and ecological campaigns. Thom Yorke: Radiohead & Trading Solo provides a fascinating portrait of a man who never settles for second best and decided that stardom, on its own, just wasn’t enough.
