Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel Fears Radiohead Hated His Cover Version

Veteran rocker Peter Gabriel fears he will never get to work with Radiohead as frontman Thom Yorke was insulted by his version of their hit track Street Spirit (Fade Out).

The former Genesis star recorded orchestral renditions of songs by artists including Neil Young, Lou Reed, and David Bowie for his 2010 album Scratch My Back, and the Radiohead cover was part of that project.

He had hoped the artists featured would return the favour by choosing one of his tracks to record, but the plan hit the buffers when several stars, including Bowie and Radiohead, backed out, and Gabriel fears the Creep hitmakers were offended by his efforts.

He tells Mojo magazine, "Thom Yorke's not got back to me. He was keen to do Wallflower. But then I think he or the others didn't like the version I did (of Street Spirit). I talked about it in another interview, and I think that further p**sed him off. So I think that might be one for the next life."
