James Morrison: "Coldplay second version of U2"....

Heres what he said, (re its about the brits incase anyone is wondering):

Broken Strings singer James is most looking forward to U2’s performance.

He added: “Coldplay are the second version of U2 so I’ll watch the real thing. Lady GaGa is going to be great fun to see too.”

I'm glad that Coldplay and The Killers have emerged. I hope they have long careers because I know U2 can't go on forever. They got 5 stars from the most important magazines this time around (Q, Rolling Stone) but with every passing album thats a harder and harder feat to achieve.

I'm glad Coldplay, The Killers, koL have emerged, every artist needs a challenge to progress, U2 are now reacting to this challenge and progressing and I hope the other bands will do in turn too.
I don't think bashing other bands is necessay to express your love for U2, I can understand how tiresome and obsessed Chris Martin can seem, but he's a good singer in a good band, even if I prefer U2 a thousand times.

No kidding huh? I can emulate Chris Martin's voice with no problem at all. It's so fucking easy.

Bono's semi-operatic voice is alot harder to pull off.

Also good job Morrison. You ruined your credibility completely when you finished it off with Lady Gaga.

I think it´s good that other bands come along like Coldplay,Killers etc but in the 80´s there was Simple Minds,Big Country,The Alarm that were about (some of them still are) and they are really strong bands that kept U2 on their toes! I quite like Coldplay but that knock you out punch is missing from them and The Killers...? Shite band

I disagree. I think Coldplay will be the biggest band in the world once U2 retire. And they still haven't reached half of their true potential yet.

I like Coldplay and think that the things they've done since 2000 have been much more interesting that what U2 has done. Mind you, I haven't heard NLOTH yet.

Your opinion will definitely change after you listen to it.

I agree though. Coldplay's album were more interesting than U2's recent ones.

Until NLOTH came that is. It goes back to the 90s.

Important as in popularity, or credability?

If this happens, might as well give up now. Coldplay are really the epitomy of all that is wrong with music today i.e. bland, boring, soft rock, lack of invention or creativity, lack of charisma/character, poor singer, need I say more.

The are very very very poor imitation of a crap version of U2, one without any real energy, passion, innovation or any outstanding ability. If they are the best band in the world, then that really doesn't say much for bands around the world today or the type of music that is most popular.

I'm not Radiohead's biggest fan since they went all weird on Kid A, but i'd rather listen to them than Coldplay any day. KOL and The Killers aren't much better than Coldplay, neither are Keane, Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, Editors etc etc. They are all mediocre with the odd decent song, but nothing really good about them, not like some band in the 90s or before that. Muse or even Kasabian are much better than Coldplay and have more potential. Oasis have had their day, not sure what the Manic Street Preachers are doing at the moment and older bands like Bon Jovi, Aerosmith etc are way past it now and living on past glories.

If you think of the early 90s there are bands who music has stood the test of time like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Faith No More etc, all bands with excellent singers and some great songs. Okay that was mainly grunge, but I even preferred some of the Britpop by Suede, Blur, Oasis etc, to the crap indie stuff out now.

Even so, where are all the good singers these days like Bono, Chris Cornell, Mike Patten, Eddie Vedder, Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant etc. None of these indie/alternative rock bands have a decent singer between them really, I've heard better at the Barfly and other places in Camden, Kentish Town etc.

Coldplay the biggest band in the world...I'd rather see Arsenal win the treble ten years in a row and for my team Spurs to be relegated to the Conference.
