Foo Fighters

It’s been slow in the Radiohead news department lately so we’re just fishing for news.

On MTV Europe, the Foo Fighters proclaimed that The Bends was their #1 rock album of all time.

Tommy Lee on RH

Tommy Lee talked about Radiohead in an interview with KNAC recently:

KNAC.COM: I was really surprised by your vocals on the album. I think you did a great job with everything, and I especially like “Sunday.” I wondered which vocalists you’ve drawn inspiration from?
TOMMY: There’s a lot of guys that I love. Thom Yorke from Radiohead, I like his voice. The Radiohead record, The Bends is my all-time favorite record on the planet. I just think he’s got some great melodies and I feel him when he sings. I think that’s what I try to do when I sing a song; hopefully people feel me.
