Ed O'Brien Thinks He Has The Virus

First person in our music world?

March 23, 2020

So far it seems we've seen a lot of NBA players come down with the virus that shall not be named, (which Cardi B deems suspicious)...

...and now we might have our first "Alt-world" case.  Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien, who was here a couple of weeks ago, thinks that he has it.


He told Uproxx that no, he hasn't been tested, but he's been sick for 10 days with flu-like symptoms and has lost his senses of smell and taste. “I Googled it last night and that’s a classic symptom of the coronavirus,” said O'Brien, who's self-quarantining at home in the UK. “So, it’s like, okay, I’ve got it.”

Yeah, it kinda sounds like it, and he's doing the right thing by staying home.  Here's an Instagram post from Ed:

Sending love and strength EDX
