THOM YORKE NEEDS A YOO-HOO
Larry Flick graciously lets me stop by his morning show on SIRIUS XM OutQ every Wednesday morning to make my weekly "rock report," as he has named it. When we were recently discussing the reissue of R.E.M.'s classic Reckoning, he kind of went off on a tirade about Michael Stipe, and how he takes himself too seriously, and he needs a Yoo-Hoo. You know who else needs one? Thom Yorke of Radiohead. I like Radiohead a lot, but they aren't one of my favorites, and I'm not nearly as crazy about them as their huge legion of fans. But Thom Yorke needs to complain less. He's been saying that Radiohead can't do another full album because it would "kill" them or something like that. Bitch, please. Nothing else needs to be said about that. But Radiohead do have a cool new song, "These Are My Twisted Words," which they are offering as a free download.
