does chris martin need to don a pair of shades in order for people to accept he may be just pushing some buttons with his big talk?
i quite enjoy watching him emulate bono's marketing BS.
sell it like you mean it, baby.

Well, I have to give it to him though. The new album is damn good.

from Blender
Right now he's reading Into the Heart - The Stories Behind Every U2 song. U2- who were one of the blueprints for Coldplay-are ont heir 11th album; Coldplay are still beginners.
"But U2 can be beaten!" declares Martin bullishly. "For me it's no different from the film Rocky. You study your opponent. And I regard them as opponents"
They'de be flattered.
"They should be terrified," retorts Martin with half-smile. But he means it. If you don't aim to take on the best, he'll say, what's the point? "Why settle for being the ninth-best band ever?"
So where do you rank yourself now?
"Ever? Um, I think we're probably fourth." Pause. "Only joking".

Chris Martin has never had a mullet.

Will Coldplay perform at Live-8? They have a gig in scotland that night.

No. I got disapproving looks from eighty percent of the congregation, who I think were horrified by that fact that a Christian girl of fourteen could know the word genitals...

I was mortified. I was so embarassed I could have cried.
I laugh about it now, of course

funny but i never really liked coldplay's music that much. just about the only thing that strikes me as worth listening is yellow. and then i get irritated by chris' voice. too pop-ish for me. honestly, next to bono, my favorite voice at the moment and which really blows me away is that of bo bice. bright future for this guy. heard santana is doing a collaboration with him. THAT i want to hear.
