VIDEO: Radiohead covers Neil Young’s “Tell Me Why”

I have yet to get around to writing my second review for last week’s Radiohead show at White River Amphitheatre (here is my first review in case you missed it), but that doesn’t mean I forgot about the show.

One of the highlights of the show was when Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood flubbed up “Faust Arp” twice and after one of the mess ups they broke into Neil Young’s “Tell Me Why.” The funny part about that song was Thom mumbling the lyrics because he didn’t know all of them.

Well, Radiohead played in San Francisco a few days after blowing me away (again) at White River and the performed a cover of “Tell Me Why” in full. Here’s the video:

I’m covering the show for the P-I and I managed to score a photo pass, so hopefully I will take some decent pics and be able to post them here for all to enjoy. You can also expect a detailed review of the show to be posted here. Although I am not sure I will be able to write the review immediately after the concert for this blog.

(Note: The rest of this post is mostly babble about the technicalities of filing two reviews for two different publications that I face as a freelancer. Feel free to keep reading, but I figured I would give you a heads up in case you could care less about the fine details of my job.)
