Frontman Thom Yorke plans to miss Radiohead’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
Yorke has confirmed to Variety that he wont be attending the March ceremony at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center after weeks of speculation about whether Radiohead will show up for their induction.
“We’ve always been very blasé about that stuff. So we don’t want to offend anyone. We just think that we just don’t quite understand it,” the singer said of the Rock Hall honor.
“We’ve had it explained to us, so it’s cool. But we don’t really understand it as English people,” he added. “I think our problem is essentially that every awards ceremony in the UK stinks. We grew up with the Brits, which is like this sort of drunken car crash that you don’t want to get involved with.”
Meanwhile, Yorke is excited about the Oscars, as his Suspiria song “Suspirium” has been nominated in the Academy Awards’ Best Original Song category.
“The Oscar thing makes a bit more sense, I guess, because I’ve had it explained to me a bit more.,” Yorke said. “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.”
