Thom Yorke Crushed My Dreams, Says Peter Gabriel (Almost)



Remember when everyone thought that Peter Gabriel was just your kindly, hip-to-the-beat grandpa that you could name-check at will and shower with indie praise? Well, he's through with you now! You know, if you're Thom Yorke. In January, we reported on Peter Gabriel's pretty cool covers album, Scratch My Back, which features not only old heroes like Talking Heads and Lou Reed, but also contemporary folks along the lines of Arcade Fire, Radiohead, and Bon Iver. According to NME, part of Garbriel's "song swap" involved Thom Yorke contributing a cover of Gabriel's "Wallflower," while Gabriel covered Radiohead's "Street Spirit (Fade Out)". Unfortunately Yorke has been hard to reach, and--Gabriel suspects--he hates the "Street Spirit" cover. And now we feel bad for Peter Gabriel. He's nice, he's kind of old, and he's a terrific gossip. Who couldn't love that? We're really asking. Who, Yorke, who?
