John Adamian of the Hartford Advocate spoke with classical pianist Christopher O’Riley, who interprets Radiohead’s hits. Why? “My aim has just been purely selfish — I love the music and I want to play it,” says O’Riley. “This is the only instrument I play, so this is what I’m doing.” And he’s found fans of the work from the band’s fans. “[Radiohead fans] like it,” O’Riley insisted. “They think I get parts of their songs. And they like hearing them; that’s the best thing … . These are interpretations, and the interpretations go down rather well with the people who love the music as much as I do.” Hartfordadvocate.com has since removed the article.
