The English rock band is composed of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards), Colin Greenwood (bass), Ed O’Brien (guitar, backing vocals) and Philip Selway (drums, backing vocals) and broke into the music scene in 1992 with the hit single, “Creep” and one of the most popular alternative rock music acts in the past three decades.
