Speaking to actor Alec Baldwin on his US WNYC Radio show he commented:

“I’ll never forget McCartney said to me even the Beatles got tired of being the Beatles,” Alec Baldwin prompted. “Were there times when you guys sat there and looked at each other and said, “I think we’re done”?”

“I do that frequently – frequently. I mean at least…,” Thom Yorke replied.

Asked how the rest of Radiohead felt, he admitted it was really in his hands.

“Not as much. They just wait for me to do it. But it changes…”

On what would prompt the split he added: “It’s never really the music, it’s always everything else.”

“Just stresses of life, whatever.”

Thome Yorke was promoting his new band Atoms For Peace whose debut Amok was just released.

The supergroup boasts Yorke, Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.
