Yorke Urges Prince To Release Creep Video Footage

Rocker THOM YORKE has reportedly called on PRINCE to allow video footage of his Coachella Festival performance to be made available online - because the RADIOHEAD frontman wants to see the pop superstar's rendition of CREEP.
Prince stormed the stage at the Californian festival in April (08), playing a string of his hit singles to the 60,000-strong audience.
However, one of the biggest surprises of the night was his cover of classic Radiohead song Creep, which he performed with an added guitar solo and extended falsetto.
Fans' video footage of the Coachella appearance later appeared online on YouTube.com - but they were soon pulled from the website after its owners were allegedly threatened with legal action.
But the move didn't go down well with Yorke, who wanted to see the rendition for himself - only to discover the video was no longer available despite owning the rights to his band's song.
According to reports, when Yorke was told of the internet ban, he said, "Really? He's blocked it? Surely we should block it. Hang on a moment... well tell him to unblock it, it's our song."
It's not the first time Prince and executives at his NPG Records label have taken legal action for breach of copyright - in 2007, the star threatened to sue three of his biggest fansites unless they removed images, album artwork and lyrics from their websites.
