From USA Today: “The perks of fame: The members of Switchfoot have now had occasion to meet several of their idols, including U2′s Bono, whom Jon consulted about data.com, a Web site promoting awareness of African debt aid and trade. While recording Letdown, Jon and his bandmates also bumped into Radiohead — almost literally. “We went into what we thought was our studio, and Thom Yorke and the rest of the guys were there. I thought, ‘This is so great: Radiohead is in our studio, hanging out.’ In reality, they were tracking their own record. So I walk in, introduce myself, say ‘What’s going on?’ They’re obviously completely taken aback by this kid barging in and asking questions. I walked further in, and finally Thom Yorke comes up to me and says, ‘I don’t mean to be an idiot, but if you could please leave? It’s a private studio.’ He was very kind about it, though.”"
