That would be right. RH are one of the greatest bands around at the moment![/quote]
at the moment? they are more than that! they are easily the 2nd most important band of our generation 2nd only to nirvana. radiohead are one of the best bands of all time. They;ve been this way probably since OKC which of course was released 15 years ago. they are only getting better, thats the scary part. Flawless band. one of the greatest lyricists and frontmen of all time in thom. and johnny has to be one of the most underrated guitarists of all time, but will in time be viewed with the kind of praise and honor he deserves. what do you say about a band like radiohead? endlessly searching and experimenting, creating, trying out new things. this isnt just a huge band in 2012. i think a case could be made that in 40 years, they will be viewed along the lines of Elvis, or the beatles, or the stones or dylan.[/quote]
I agree with everything you have to say. I was underrating them when I said they're one of the greatest bands at the moment. You are right, they are getting better as they go along and it's incredible all the different, interesting, innovative stuff they come up with. May they be around for years to come with their amazing creativity. I love everything about them and have to have a "hit" of their music every day. I have all their albums which I quickly bought not long after I discovered their genius. They're as relevant today as Pink Floyd were in their heyday. Thom and Jonny are outstanding as is the rest of the band, who are obviously more low key than Thom and Jonny. I hope that they are
viewed along the lines of the artists you mentioned in years to come. Good to know that there are people out there such as your self who view this band in the way that they deserve to be seen. I'm seeing them live for the first time in November, and cannot wait, it will be the highlight of my year, I'm sure.
