Quite obvious wasn't it?

The strongest distinction between the two is voice. Martin simply doesn't have the pipes to demand a stage prescence like Bono does, even if he apes his movements down to a tee.

I have nothing against them, but his stage act is getting considerably Bono-ish these days, he did the same thing on Conan a week or two ago, went up into the crowd, ad-libbing non-sense etc. He's just been heavily influenced and is starting to approach the line between flattering imitation and Stappness.

I have to say I think a lot of the Coldplay bashing around here is downright ridiculous, but even so, you can't deny the obvious.

I agree with all you said. I like coldplay, but try to be yourself mr. chris martin.
