I can understand why Tom Yorke and Radiohead don't want to meet Miley Cyrus and Kanye West backstage at the Grammys. Not that I've been to the Grammys, but I've been in situations where people come up to you at an event trying to curry favor or play the "I'm an admirer" game. You get the feeling they aren't sincere. If someone was really interested in meeting you, why wait for a "photo op" moment to do it?
Wear gaudy colors, or avoid display. Lay a million eggs or give birth to one. The fittest shall survive, yet the unfit may live. Be like your ancestors or be different. We must repeat!
Radiohead is a name band based upon name only. If you asked a general poll to name 5 songs by Radiohead I would be willing to bet about 80% of the general population would draw a blank. They really aren't played on the mainstream radio anymore. They have a good following and have made enough money to tell Miley or Kayne to shove it.
However, if I were to go out and buy a Cd from one of the 3 it would be Kayne. Both Kayne and Miley are much more popular in the general public. However Radiohead probably just doesn't care. Most people over 18 really don't like Miley all that much and her speaking out against Radiohead is good publicity for the band.

There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
C. Savatage. listen to their music '91 (Streets: A Rock Opera) through their final album in '03 (Poets and Madmetn) (and if you like TSO, they are Savtage-lite in musical and possibly lyrical senses); are far better than Radiohead could dream of being. "Creep" is the only Radiohead song that doesn't bore me to tears. Miley Cyrus has some potential, but i really doubt she'll ever come close to using it.
Megadeth after "Rust in Peace...Polaris" is also brilliant.
oh yeah, and then there is those that Paul Simon and Merle Haggard guys...
