Roger Waters on Radiohead

by Jonathan on February 23, 2002

There is an interview with Roger Waters in the current issue of Rolling Stone where he mentions Radiohead. Here they are:

Have you heard Radiohead?
My son Harry gave me OK Computer. I really liked it. I thought it had two or three really great songs on it. Then a friend gave me a newish album with a red thing, I can’t even remember what it was called —

“Amnesiac”?
Yeah, Amnesiac. That was beyond me, I have to say. I listened to it once in the car and went, “Well, OK, guys. Good, but you’ve left me.” You know, where’s my Neil Young? Where’s my John Lennon album?

It’s very difficult to write “Breathe, breathe in the air, don’t be afraid to care,” without people going, “Fucking wanker!” [laughs]. And I think that’s what Radiohead and these other bands are attaching to. There is a purity in those records.
