US magazine Pool Flair reports that Thom Yorke worked with the shotgun-toting rocker on We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
Following Atoms for Peace – his collaboration with Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers – Thom Yorke is believed to have lined up an even more unlikely collaboration: Radiohead are suspected to be working with Ted Nugent on a musical adapatation of the children’s book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
The US magazine Pool Flair reported that Nugent and Yorke had hit it off at a charity event recently, where the reputedly glum star told the US rocker that Radiohead often soundchecked with versions of his 70s hits Cat Scratch Fever and Wang Dang Sweet Poontang.
“Thom told Ted he was working on a musical based on a kids’ book and the Nuge offered to help,” a source told Pool Flair. “He went to Nuge’s hunting ranch in Texas, and goddam if it didn’t turn out he was a natural with a rifle and sights. That boy bagged him some game when he was there.”
