Legendary Peter Frampton is currently promoting “Frampton Forgets the Words”, his new instrumental cover album and in an interview with Grammy.com he gave his opinion on Radiohead, that he covered on the album, playing the song “Reckoner”.
Guitarist Peter Frampton gives his opinion on Radiohead:
Asked if he knew Radiohead members, he said: “No, I don’t know them. But from afar, I’m amazed by that band. It’s one of the most inventive bands ever, I think, and they keep reinventing themselves with every album, every piece. And it’s something so special; it’s very unique. I mean, every band is unique in some way, but Radiohead are way ahead of their time, I think, which is wonderful.”
“I can learn so much from them just listening to the way [Thom Yorke] sings, plays, the way they all write, the basic chord sequence and the track and the riff. You know, I delve in there. It’s a lesson for a musician. It’s a really big lesson listening to any one of their songs.”
