Born Thomas Edward Yorke on 7 October 1968, in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, England, he is the lead vocalist, principal songwriter, guitarist and pianist of the rock band Radiohead. Thom Yorke's life story of success is an inspiring one. He was born with a vision ailment,i.e., his left eye was paralyzed and shut until the age of six, and thus, he had gone through numerous surgeries to get back his sight. Finding solace in music, he took guitar and piano lessons early in his childhood. Being the subject of teasing in the classroom made him only to practice harder, which eventually led to forming his own combo, what's today known as Radiohead. The band, often considered as one of the biggest art-rock act since Pink Floyd, was formed in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, in 1985, even though under different name, i.e., On a Friday. The name referred to the band's rehearsal day when its founding members: Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwood (bass), Phil Selway (drums, percussion) and Ed O'Brien (guitar, backing vocals); gathered to create music and hone their musical skills. High-school students at the time, they truly became fruitful several years later. As Radiohead, they released their debut single "Creep" in 1992. Once the American radio MTV made a surprise hit out of the Nirvana-esque anthem, the band rose to global prominence. As for their full-length albums, they include the following: Pablo Honey (1993), The Bends (1995), OK Computer (1997), Kid A (2000), Amnesiac (2001), Hail to the Thief (2003), In Rainbows (2007) and The King of Limbs (2011). All of the albums were well-received by rock audiences, but it was OK Computer that earned the votes to became Greatest Album of All Time in the British magazine Q shortly after its release. While Radiohead is still his top priority, Yorke has also found the time to work on some side projects, like releasing his debut effort The Eraser (2006) and his work with Atoms for Peace, album titled Amok (2013).
