The genius multi-instrumentalist and lead guitarists for Radiohead was born. Not only is Jonny Greenwood easily considered one of the greatest and most innovative guitarists of our time but he also has a knack for composing scores for films such as “There will be blood,” which he was nominated for in the Grammy’s for best score for a film. Most recently he scored the film “Norwegian Wood,” which is also one of my favorite novels written by Haruki Murakami. Greenwood is often credited as the second major influence on songwriting in Radiohead, next to Thom Yorke. He wrote the music for the closing tracks of OK Computer (“The Tourist”), Kid A (“Motion Picture Soundtrack”), Amnesiac (“Life in a Glasshouse”) and Hail to the Thief (“A Wolf at the Door”).
Happy Birthday Jonny Greenwood!!!
