Jonny Greenwood Net Worth $20 Million Dollars

Jonny Greenwood Net Worth: He dropped from the psychology program at Oxford Brookes University when his group Radiohead got a record deal in 1991. He worked as the group’s keyboardist and guitarist despite being gifted in various instruments. Greenwood composed or collaborated on several tracks for the group, including “Subterranean Homesick Alien”, “Only”, and “Arpeggi”. He uses his computer programming background to create applications to simply help make Radiohead’s music exceptional, which played an enormous part in the development of the group’s 2011 release “The King of Limbs”. Greenwood started a solo career in the early 2000s, with his first record, “Bodysong”, falling in 2003. He released a compilation album, “Jonny Greenwood Is the Controller”, four years after. Greenwood has been married to his own wife, artist Sharona Katan, since 1995. She appears on several of his soundtrack covers. He and Katan have three kids together.

Quotes

#Quote
1Jamaican reggae is the style of music I always reach for when ranting to friends about how you could listen to one style of music exclusively for the rest of your life - and it would all be great and varied and worth hearing.
2At least we played well. But I don't think the irony was lost on people. All these gorgeous, bikinied girls shaking their mammary glands, and we're playing Creep and looking terrible.
3Most prog is awful. I've got it into my head that prog rock must be good because it attracted a lot of fans. But so far, I've just trawled through fairly tedious Genesis albums.
4I think guitarists are really over-admired and over-revered. I don't mind when people are telling me about their 1971 Firebird, but it's the same thing as people telling me about their car or something. It's fine if you have an interest. By talking with me though, you could be interviewing a novelist about guitars. It's the same thing, except I don't write that well either. I like my guitar and I enjoy playing it.
