Trevor Baker's biography of Thom Yorke, published 2009, is, as the cover states, the first ever biography of Yorke. Personally, I would have preferred a biography of Radiohead. I suspect there must be one already on the music bookshelves. Sure enough, Thom Yorke is the leader of the band, the writer of the songs and a most interesting and compelling figure, but I felt throughout this read, that I wanted to know more of the other four band members. O'Brian, Colin Greenwood and Selway are more or less absent from the narrative.
Two stars says it was o.k. and I'm glad I could get through this in one day.

I'm not the biggest radiohead fan, but I do love their sound. The bends and O.K. Computer are good albums though! & of course I've never seen them live either but wouldn't that be a riot. There are too many bands, that would be great to see live. Broken up and together
