-Adam Clayton v their bassist: Clayton is the jazz, soul man. Coldplay have some decent basslines, but nothing as distinctive as Clayton's.

-Larry Mullen v their drummer: well, Mullen is just a warhorse and looks great!

So- winners as individuals and team. There is only 1 u2- coldplay can try but ain't got the goods.

just a simple fyi:


Their lead guitarist:
Jonny Buckland
Musical Likes: The Stone Roses, Ride


Their bass player:
Guy Buckland
Musical Tastes: James Brown, Kool & The Gang, funk and soul.

Their Drummer:
Will Champion
Musical Tastes: Irish folk


I love Coldplay and love U2. I do not think Coldplay are bigger than U2, but like someone posted in here why is it wrong for a band to strive to be bigger than the one who is on top? Competition is good. I also like Radiohead but I am not going to dislike one band over another because musical comparrisons come up. If I like the music and songs you will get my fanship regardless. The fans in here are not getting my $$$ the bands are and that is all that matters to me.

That's funny, 'cause, with a lot of the shoegazer bands like Ride, I barely notice the guitar because it's so thoroughly drowned under layers of reverb. Still great stuff, though.

Oh, and Guy Buckland and Will Champion have got Adam and Larry beat on cool names, if nothing else.

COLDPLAY is boring and overrated. i don't like their music. its like a band has written one song and does repeat that song in an endless loop all the time.
we need rockers...no poppers !!!

Adam and Guy would probably get along well, Adam once said his favorite artist was Bob Marley. Also into R & B, and some groups I've never heard of, Propellor heads?

Hehe Larry sang Irish folk songs.

U2 and Coldplay get along better than some of their fans do, it would seem.

I've heard people use the exact same argument when talking about U2.

Yeah me too, "U2 songs all sound the same" but those who say that, can't possibly be that familiar with U2 to say that.

I recently heard Boomerang II, at first it has like a traditional Japanese style intro, gets faster and Adam sings on it!

I never get those arguments.

Adam's not really regarded as one of the best bassist in rock, yet, how many bassists have such a memorable, signature bass riff like "New year's Day?" I'm told it's not even a hard line to play, but watch the crowds go nuts the second he starts that intro.

*pictures Coldplay doing Discotheque video*

ROTFL!

*pictures any band doing discotheque video*



If only more bands could be this silly, goofing around like that.

Can't be bothered thinking about that, as it didn't happen. I'm just gonna bask in the Frogs glory on sunday, and laugh at Coldplay's expense.

In that respect, I guess I treat U2 like my football team. And I remember how pissed off I was when 'Stuck..' was beaten to no.1 by Atomic Kitten (of all ppl)
So I shall enjoy the news come 7pm on sunday.

:lightbulb: guys, guys...you all know everyone uses the "all their songs sound the same!" argument for any band they dislike, right?

the only bands i can think of where it actually applies are bon jovi and creed. (i kid, i kid, unless no one here's a fan of either in which case fuck yeah! lol)

The idea that all of Coldplay's songs sound the same is more than a bit naff. I could see that argument - sort of - for Parachutes. But it's just not the case for Rush of Blood.

Even if you look at just the singles ... In My Place, God Put a Smile Upon Your Face, The Scientist, Clocks ... you can't argue that they all sound the same. Four completely different tempos and structures. They're as varied as four singles that U2 ever released from the same album, with the exception of Zooropa, which only had three singles anyway. And that's not even mentioning Politic.

We want to be better than Mozart. That doesn't mean we are, but that's what we're trying for. To me, there's no point in trying for anything less."
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Only one person in this threat mentoined this utterly stupid comment from the increasingly annoying frontman of Coldplay. used to be briefly charmed by them but for God sake people they are soooooooooo boring'...Charisma??? ZERO Points...Everybody keeps mentioning U2 versus Coldplay...ehhhh wake up please

Chris Martin should be committed for mentioning Mozarts name when talking about himself or his U2-cloneband...it's pathetic...

Mozart must be smiling down from heaven thinking
"I wrote don Giovanni and this guy wants to do better "

Well Chris: good luck with your efforts but speed of light is not exactely the Requiem...good luck with making your own fruitfamily...

Fantastic quote by the superior Thom Yorke by the way
