Kid A Radiohead

Celebs who love RH

On Carson Daly’s “Last Call” last night (Oct. 4), Peter Gabriel was on promoting his new album Up. Carson Daly asked the following:

Carson Daly – “Is there anything just sort of currently that might, I don’t know, move you or inspire you musically of stuff that’s out there right now?”

Peter Gabriel – “I don’t know, I mean, for me when I saw Radiohead’s Kid A at number one that was a big thrill because it was the most experimental record I’ve seen at number one in this country, that I can remember. So that’s one of those things. I mean there’s a lot of interesting stuff, we have a band, just been at the studio (real world studios, peter gabriels studios) called Sigur Ros, that I think are very good and I listen to a lot of the world music stuff, so that keeps me fascinated.”

In other “celebrities who love Radiohead” news, NSYNC’s Justin Timberlake mentioned his admiration of Radiohead, calling them the “modern-day Beatles”, in an interview with MTV. We’ll save you from having to read the full interview:

I don’t know if people will get this, but the way I treated my vocals in the verse of ‘Take It From Here’ was like [Radiohead’s] Thom Yorke or [Coldplay’s] Chris Martin,” he added. “To me, Radiohead and Coldplay are the modern-day Beatles. I would love to do a duet with Chris Martin someday. That would just be something so original, and I know I could pull it off. It may not happen, but it doesn’t hurt to put it out there.”
