In a recent interview on the Heres The Thing radio show, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke reached the subject of disbanding the five-piece and ending the group after almost three decades of work. Although he seemed to be perfectly honest, it's not something the fans would want to hear either.
When asked by host Alec Baldwin whether there was ever a time when the band got fed up with what they are doing, a time when they "looked at each other and said, 'I think we're done,'" the singer said:
"I do that frequently frequently"
Yorke then went on to explain that ending Radiohead would just be "life," adding that its never about the music when it comes to these things. But it seems that the rest of the band doesn't quite share his views and is just "waiting for him to do it" at the moment.
"It's never really the music, it's always everything else. Just stresses of life, whatever..."
Bassist Colin Greenwood recently shared some different views regarding the bands future, stating that that Radiohead are ready to enter the studio and will do so in a matter of months.
"We're taking some time out whilst people are doing some other stuff, doing their own things, and the plan is to get back together again [at the] end of the summer," Greenwood told the BBC 6Music.
Latest Radiohead release, "The King of Limbs," came out in February 2011 as the group's 8th studio effort. With 69,000 units sold within the first week, it debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart.
