Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead performs during the band's headlining set on the first weekend of the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California.

And from said website comes this interesting nugget for Radiohead fans and nerds: Guitarist Jonny Greenwood got his Ebony Frost Fender Telecaster Plus back 20 years after the band's gear was stolen during a 1995 stop in Denver.

Via the King of Gear:

Last year, someone contacted me via email, saying that they were browsing the site and recognized Jonny’s Ebony Frost Fender Telecaster Plus (old Tele2) as one that they had purchased in the 90’s in Denver, CO (the city in which all of the band’s gear was stolen on October 04, 1995). I directed them to Plank, the band’s guitar tech, and the result was that after nineteen years, the guitar was finally returned to Jonny.

Here's some Radiohead in the studio circa 2008. Greenwood's in the yellow t-shirt.
