Ongoing History Daily: Radiohead’s weirdest fan?

Over the course of their existence, Radiohead has attracted some of the most rabid and strange groupies in music. 

For example, a fan once asked guitarist Colin Greenwood for an autograph.  He obliged and the next night, the fan showed up with a tattoo of Colin’s signature.  But this is even weirder. 

Thom Yorke once got a letter from a convicted British murderer who told him that he loved the song “Creep” because the song was about him.  “I killed this bloke,” he wrote, “I’m the creep in that song.  But it wasn’t me.  It was the words in my head.  They made me do it.”

Yesterday’s post was about an odd request Michael Jackson made of U2.
