Here at Rock My World we are big fans of the band, ‘Radiohead’.
Known for being uncompromising, alternative, and incredibly cool, the bands singer, Thom Yorke, has never been one to follow music trends. Thom also surprised even the most jaded members of the music industry by being able to maintain one of the longest relationships in rock ’n’ roll, but alas, the news just in, is that the lead singer has split from, Rachel Owen, his partner of 23 years.
Thom and Rachel have been at each others side since the forming of the band, but it appears that Rachel, mother to Thom’s two children Noah, 14, and Agnes, 11, is now holidaying abroad without him signaling an end to one of rock music’s most solid of couples.
Yorke is without doubt, one of the most influential artists in music today and during the bands lifespan this has helped him become one of the wealthiest artists in the music business.
The split details are yet to be worked out, but, Thom could very well be looking at having to split his £22 million fortune with Rachel, whom he began dating when they were both at Exeter University. As it stands though, Rachel, a printmaker, will remain in the couple’s £3 million home in Oxfordshire.
All of this will undoubtedly be a strain on Thom as he embarks on a long tour of his solo album ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes,’ which opened in Tokyo last week.
Yorke is also very keen on having a career in composing, and only last week he announced that he will be writing the score to Harold Pinter’s ‘Old Times’ on Broadway, starring Clive Owen.
