Although Radiohead will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March, the band’s frontman, Thom Yorke, will not be in attendance.
In a recent interview with Variety, Yorke detailed prior commitments that will stop him from attending the induction ceremony in Brooklyn. Yorke stated that he’ll be in France at the time, as he wrote a piece for the Paris Philharmonic, which is premiering on April 7th.
Thom Yorke tells Variety he can't make it to Radiohead's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction. But he's less suspicious of the plaudits he's receiving for his "Suspiria" score and its Oscar-shortlisted theme song. https://t.co/rpzzjUEG8Q

“I can’t. I know I can’t, because of these piano pieces that I’ve written,” Yorke explained, although he doesn’t seem too upset about missing out on the ceremony. Yorke continued on to explain that he’s “always been very blasé about that stuff.”
Yorke added that he wasn’t trying to offend anyone, but rather the band just doesn’t quite understand it “as English people.”
