Philip Selway's writing break
Philip Selway didn't write any Radiohead material for 15 years.
The drummer - who released his debut solo album 'Familial' in August - admitted writing material for the record was initially a challenge, as he hadn't written anything for Radiohead in "a good decade and a half".
He said: "You learn to write songs when you're a teenager, or when you're in your twenties, so you have a particular slant from those experiences. Coming across a new songwriter who's starting in his late thirties, that's a different slant on things.
"When we first started as a band, I'd bring stuff in, but there's no dearth of material there. So I didn't really write anything for a good decade and a half."
However, the British rocker explained working outside the band prevented him from becoming frustrated with the "defined" roles within Radiohead.
He added: "We have our fairly defined roles within the band and you try and develop within them, but they are fixed. Working outside the band, you always gain a broader view and you get stuff out of your system, which prevents some frustrations coming into the process of working together.
"And you appreciate what you've got."Posted on 20 Sep 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
