Thom Yorke Travels to Copenhagen For Climate Summit

December 17, 2009 12:00 AM ET

Thom Yorke has frequently posted on Radiohead's Dead Air Space the past weeks about the Copenhagen Climate Summit going on now in Denmark. Not satisfied with simply bringing attention to the summit, the singer of Rolling Stone's Number One Album of the 2000s decided to make a surprise voyage over to Copenhagen to witness the talks himself. Watch above (via AtEase) as Yorke talks about his climate concerns and what his hopes for the summit are. Yorke is actually attending the summit with a press badge, so the above video represents one of those rare instances where reporters are interviewing a much more famous reporter, a member of the press who was recently named among RS' Artists of the Decade in our current issue. Yorke will also reportedly talk on the Age of Stupid Website at some point today.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
