Thom Yorke's life story of success is an inspiring one. He was born with a vision ailment. His left eye was paralyzed and shut until the age of six, and thus, he had gone through numerous surgeries to restore 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 practice harder, which eventually led to forming his own band. This early group eventually formed what we know today as Radiohead. The band, often considered as one of the biggest art-rock act since Pink Floyd, was formed in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, in 1985 under the name, 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. The band found mainstream success after they released their debut single "Creep" in 1992. MTV helped turn the song into a teen-angst anthem and soon 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), The King of Limbs (2011) and A Moon Shaped Pool (2016). All of the albums were well-received by rock audiences, but it was OK Computer that is considered one of the greatest albums of all time by many music critics. 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).
