http://pitchfork.com/news/66383-radioheads-ed-obrien-talked-to-kanye-west-about-godDuring the conversation, O'Brien revealed that he once talked to Kanye West about musicians' relationships to faith and God. Their conversation, which happened "about four years ago" during Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, was apparently tentative and one-sided. ("He wan't interested in me at all," O'Brien said.) Apparently, they connected when O'Brien discussed British musicians' religious beliefs.
I said, "If you asked pretty much any British musician whether they believed in God, I'd tell you that 99% of them would say, 'Don't be stupid, of course not.'" It blew his mind. He was like, "You cannot be serious."
