Phil is often jokingly called the "bald member". In fact he is one of the friendliest. Phil is the oldest of the band and perhaps the most underrated one. His soft and polite voice can easily be recognized in interviews and concerts. Before joining Radiohead he had drummed for various touring musicians and worked as an English teacher.
21.97 % of users had this result: You are Jonny! (guitar, keyboard, piano) Hardly drinks. Married. Known as "the dreamer" at school. Likes buying clothes. Wrote The Tourist, the final track on OK Computer. Jonathan "Jonny" Richard Guy Greenwood is Radiohead's "lead" guitarist. He is also the brother of fellow band member Colin Greenwood. His short name, "Jonny", is spelled without h, because it comes from the name Jonathan, not John. Radiohead fans have joked about this, suggesting that bandmate Thom Yorke adopted the "h" that Jonny dropped.
46.24 % of users had this result: You are Thom! (vocals, guitar piano) During his first year at Exeter University he sported a long coat and a trilby hat; Steptoe & The Bunnymen chic. Still likes clothes. Changes his hairstyle more often and more radically than the others. Writes the bulk of the songs which the band arranges and mutates. Drives a Fiat Punto. Born with a paralyzed left eye, Yorke spent most of his first five years undergoing operations leaving him with impaired vision and his trademark lazy eye. Classmates often taunted him with the nickname "Salamander." After seeing Queen guitarist Brian May perform on television, Yorke was inspired to become a musician. He received his first guitar at the age of 7 and joined his first band by the age of 10 while attending a private boys' school in Abingdon (where he would meet his future Radiohead bandmates). Yorke later attended the University of Exeter and worked as an orderly in a mental hospital. Radiohead became one the world's most successful bands, topping charts around the world, and Yorke's songs became synonymous with late 20th century culture. Themes of technology, urban-existentialism, illness, and love dominate his lyrics. Yorke has also garnered attention as a political activist campaigning for causes including Free Trade, Anti-War movements, and Amnesty International. He currently lives in Oxford with his long-time girlfriend, Rachel, and their two children, Noah and Agnes. He uses the pseudonym Tchock when doing album artwork. He cites his biggest influences as Queen, The Sex Pistols, David Bowie, Can, the Pixies, and Jimi Hendrix.
8.96 % of users had this result: You are Ed! (guitar, vocals) Ed's dad is well-known as a keen follower of the band's fortunes and pop in general. "His dad will come in waving the music papers and want to discuss the new Primal Scream single," said Colin. Ed has now moved into his own place. Ed was originally invited into the band by Thom Yorke because of his resemblance to Morrissey. He is often considered the most photogenic rock star of the band, and the most gregarious with the public. He is also the tallest member of the band, at 6' 5". Ed has a wife named Susan and a child, Salvador, who was born in January 2004. Ed is known to smoke marijuana recreationally, and is a supporter of the campaign for cannabis reclassification. Despite the "no-drugs-during-sessions"-policy of the band, Ed has said that he recorded songs during Pablo Honey and The Bends while stoned. In Meeting People Is Easy documentary, Ed was seen rolling a spliff. At the Brit awards in 2001, Ed talked openly about how he had used hallucinogenic mushrooms. Ed and Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood claimed they had been under the influence of mushrooms while attending the 2001 Grammy awards.
15.32 % of users had this result: You are Colin! (bass guitar) Known as Coz. While an undergraduate studying English Literature at Peterhouse, Cambridge, Colin served as the college's entertainment officer, and helped arrange several gigs for Radiohead, which was then known as On a Friday. Later, whilst working at the music chain store Our Price, he apparently had a big hand in helping the band get off the ground. When Keith Wozencroft, nearing his run as a sales rep for EMI, entered the store one day, Colin said, "You should sign my band" and handed him their demo tape. That got it all started for the band with EMI. Colin is often described as the intellectual of the band, having completed his studies in modern American literature. Among his greatest musical influences are Booker T and the MGs. In 2004, Colin served as a judge for the New Generation Poets talent contest, sponsored by the Arts Council of England. His wife Molly McGrann is an American literary critic and novelist; they have a son, Jesse. About his brother Jonny he says: "Unlike the Gallaghers we beat each other up in private and get on very well in public ... It's really nice to be in a position where you're with a member of your family and you get on really well."
