Coldplay ?????


I was wondering what everyone thought of Coldplay and the obvious comparison. Has anyone heard their comments in any interviews and if so, did they give props and homage to guys?

I apologize if this has already been discussed. Iíve been gone for quite awhile.

Hey Whammy!

Check out this thread here!

More than 700 posts about Coldplay...some about the comparisons between early U2 and Coldplay.

In most of the interviews I've heard, Chris Martin and the rest have nothing but great things to say about U2.

I Coldplay... but have been a bit aggravated at their lack of interviews and tv appearances since Chris started dating "the actress." Before that, he was always willing to talk to everyone, or meet fans before shows. This doesn't affect my love of their music, though - I just feel their general image has become a bit icy.

I love them but I hate the comparisons. Other than Chris' obvious concern for the fair trade issue, which is of course VERY CLOSELY related to the debt and subsequent povery issues of third world countries, I see no real similarities in their music.

The Coldplay show I went to see at the Hollywood Bowl this may was one of the best concerts I have ever been to.

Coldplay is my 2nd favorite band. I don't know how similar they are to early U2 though, because they seem to be more mellow than U2's first albums.

Maybe that's just me...
