In case when <a href="http://beyondbridges.net/2016/02/travesty/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">reading this</a>, you conclude that I am one of those dudes that just hates covers and people messing with 'the original', thought I would share this you all. Well worth a listen.
Amanda’s interpretations delivered here, because I read about it on Maria Popover’s Brain Pickings. Click through for a great interview with Amanda. And Maria’s own article separates out all of the tribute tracks.
this is the 9th post in my series of Bowie Tributes - enjoy

Basically they left it to their fans to decide what to pay - pay a premium or 'steal' it - my paraphrasing of what good people will think - not their words.
Turns out they did very well with that approach – but of course the nay sayers suggested that of course Radiohead can afford to do that – they are Radiohead. At the time, I was on a bit more of a rant about the stupid music industry than I am these days. Not because the music industry has become more wise – or even that the problems have gone away – just time I guess. I am not part of the industry – simply a passionate watcher from the peanut gallery that involve himself with the professionals in the creative industry and help wherever I can.
