Thom Yorke Won’t Be Attending Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony


Radiohead will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but Thom Yorke already has other commitments surrounding the ceremony, according to Variety. Yorke will be in Paris getting ready for a piece he wrote, being performed by the Paris Philharmonic April 7th so he won’t be attending the ceremony in Brooklyn March 29th.

“I can’t. I know I can’t, because of these piano pieces that I’ve written. There’s the Paris Philharmonic, so I have to be there for that,” Yorke told Variety of the piece he wrote the piece for Katia and Marielle Labèque.

However, Yorke is hoping for a Oscar nomination after making the shortlist for Best Original Song, “Suspirium” from the movie soundtrack.  “I mean, I hope it gets nominated. That would be great, because it was a year and a half in my life, and I worked bloody hard on it. So, you know, sometimes it’s nice to be recognized. Sometimes, if you understand what it means,”  He told Variety.
