June 28, 1997 – Radiohead’s OK Computer hits No.1 on the UK Charts

I was going door-to-door telling people that “Creep” is a bad song when I found myself in a computer store.

Then I laughed, ’cause I got the picture of a computer drinking a pint and hanging out with his computer mates. Then all of a sudden I stopped laughing, because I got the idea of what if a computer could play guitar. I was transfixed by this idea. And that’s when I knew: We needed to do an album about that.”
