Conan O'Brien

“Creep” [by Radiohead]

Conan O’Brien, no relation to Ed O’Brien, soundchecked Radiohead’s “Creep” the other day. He’s currently on his “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour.” (Fun fact: Radiohead was the first musical guest on Late Night with Conan O’Brien). Look for Conan on TBS, a “very funny” station, in the fall.
