Come again?

Let's hope that Thom Yorke didn't take advantage of Colin Greenwood's temporary deafness during the making of In Rainbows to, for example, sell the idea of the pay what you like pricing to him.

Greenwood's hearing problems were quiet acute, but got better:

"For a few months afterwards I'd be watching the telly and suddenly hear these high pitched whistling noises as more and more high frequencies came back."

He doesn't say his hearing is now sharper than ever, but we're going to hang around outside his house with one of those silent dog whistles.

[Serious bit: really, really - get some ear protection if you're going to be exposed to loud music, either in a studio or at a gig.]
