Radiohead Honors Legendary WWI Vet

Harry Patch, who was Britain's oldest survivor of WWI, died last month at the age of 111. Thom Yorke, the lead singer of Radiohead, was so moved by Patch's story that he wrote a song in his honor. The song, titled "Harry Patch (In Memory Of)," was actually recorded prior to the veteran's death but just released on the band's Web site Wednesday. Yorke wrote of the song: "It would be very easy for our generation to forget the true horror of war, without the likes of Harry to remind us. I hope we do not forget." Patch was noted for shunning the spotlight and always discussing his experience with war in a dignified manner that honored all veterans.
