Clement on stage in Nashville earlier this year

Jack Clement: Nashville legend who worked with Johnny Cash, U2 and Jerry Lee Lewis

"Cowboy" Jack Clement was one of the renaissance men of American music. A maverick original, his 60-year career was spent mainly within the country genre – writing and publishing hit songs, producing seminal albums (many in his own studios), recording in his own right, working as a DJ in his later years and even producing a horror film which has gained a cult following.

Katmen are Slim Jim Phantom, the snare-beating Stray Cat, and Darrel Higham, who twangs a fat Gretsch behind his wife, Imelda May, plus bassist Al Gare.

Album: Mayer Hawthorne, Where Does This Door Go (Republic)

Beach boy: Thom Yorke rocks a ‘surfer dude’ look, to front new band Atoms for Peace

Simon Price on Atoms for Peace: Nice grooves, Thom – shame about the moves

If you'd told the average Radiohead fan 20 years ago that their leader would one day be on stage with his hair in a scrunchy, wheeling his fist like he was at an old-skool rave, while the bassist from the Red Hot Chili Peppers gyrated next to him like an ape wrestling a rubber python, they'd have looked at you with the kind of paranoid mistrust that extended exposure to Radiohead's music engenders.
