    Default Yorke throwing fits about nothing

    I can't figure it out. It seems he didn't like the lables offer so he refused it. The label then says they offered him 3 million and wasn't interested in turning over rights to some songs. I fail to see what they were lying about to the press.

    I really continue to think this guy is just a pompous ass. It's like that whole Tony blair thing. He said he didn't want to meet with him because he got all nervouse with butterflys in his tummy and then threw in a jab about Blair not being any type of authority on global warming.

    Shut up Yorke. Just shut up and right your damn songs so your hipster fans can continue to listen to it. You do it well apparently. You are acting like a high priced athlete who is trying to negotiate incentives after the season is over. Whatever deal you made with the label regarding your music when it was recorded is done, it belongs to them. Now don't cry about it and kick and scream because you didn't get your way and the label answered a question about how it all went down.

    no no no.

    Yorke and co requested rights to their previous albums in exchange for releasing In Rainbows with EMI. EMI said no, so radiohead went elsewhere quietly.

    They did NOT request any cash. But EMI bigwigs announced that they turned Radiohead's offer down because they were requesting 10 million dollars. This is quite a twist of the truth, converting rights to albums into cash in order to make radiohead seem money grubbing.

    read up first... yorke did not kick and scream, he was merely irritated by EMI's juvenile smear campaign. look at the sequence of events next time first. it wasn't until EMI made that ridiculous announcement that Yorke said ANYTHING about EMI besides them parting because of "difference of opinion."

    EDIT: The band even remained relatively quiet when EMI announced and executed the cheap money grab that was the radiohead box set. which was completely slimy on their part, and clearly an attack based on the loss of revenue from not being given rights to the latest album.

    You should just shut up and check up on things before really making your post, let alone a thread. And for this posting, they really are not coming to Arizona, so like all the AZ peopel on this board are going to stone your ass.

    Okay, this thread just took a turn for the worse, although I do like the insinuation that Thom Yorke makes booking decisions based on what some random person who clearly isn't a fan writes on message boards.

    Um... to what? Cause I was asking what the fuck is wrong with you that you seem to get aggravated with yourself while in the middle of posting apologize for it. It's weird.

    Faxman, why do you have to keep going on about how much you hate Radiohead? We all know already just give it a rest for a bit....

    Who let the 3rd grader post? Lolololololol
    Oh Noooooo all the hipsters in arizona are going to track me down and stone me. Awesome.

    Posters 1 and 2 thank you for the intelligent response. The two articles I read about the two instances didn't mention the death thread or EMI's offer. I will read the info. What I read about the guy has turned me off but maybe as you guys say the journalism is slanted.

    Does that mean we can have all the Radiohead fans shut up about how great they are over and over again? I promise I won't talk about them if you don't. Deal?
