COLDPLAY takes away the maximum at Q Awards.

YIPPEE!!!

KEEP FOLLOWING THE NEWS !

CHRIS MARTIN Grovels at 3am after daily mirror Jibe at Q Awards.

After branding Chris Martin the “most boring man in pop”, we expected nothing more than the cold shoulder. But when we bumped into Coldplay’s frontman on the red carpet at the Q Awards yesterday, the unthinkable happened… he was actually quite nice.

In fact, cheeky charmer Chris had us weak at the knees with his outrageous flirting and compliments. So imagine our shock when he then got up on stage to accept his award for Best Act In The World – and slagged us off! He mumbled: “Thanks to everyone we’re friends with apart from people who slag us off and the Daily Mirror.”

The Wit And Wisdom Of Coldplay… (Q Awards Acceptance Speech)

Double award winners Coldplay wowed the crowds with some of the best on-stage gags and speeches of the awards

As drummer Will Champion collected the award for best act in the world, he responded to Adam Ant’s crack that the band had stolen their sartorial ideas from him. “Thanks to Q for inviting Adam Ant and making us all look like f***ing w***ers,” Champion said.

Chris Martin made it clear that he still carried a torch for Cerys Matthews, despite being married to one of the world’s most famous actresses. After collecting the best act title, Martin said: “About eight years ago we supported Catatonia and you let me hold your cigarette. I thought ‘maybe there is a chance’.”
Unlucky in love Cerys shot back: “There is a chance!”

After hearing that David Gilmour and Rick Wright had wanted to play Glastonbury, Martin took a swipe at Noel Gallagher’s Jay-Z dissing comments earlier in the year.

Martin told guest: “Pink Floyd at Glastonbury? I’m not having that.

Chatting to a reporter on the red carpet, Martin joked: “You should never count your chickens before they’ve been put in a KFC.” Asked what the band would be doing next, he said: ” Opening a restaurant and a couple of farms.”

Did Coldplay had problems ?

Did Coldplay had problems ? Lets see if they really do have some.

Keep tracking to the following news, regardless to what time these reports belong to ;)… Know more about your favourite band which you didn’t come to know before.

Martin has tussled with photographers he feels have overstepped the mark. "I don't get wound up or anything, I just have a large collection of hoods. And secret pathways"

Chris Martin is nervous. I’m not sure why. Coldplay are riding high: their comeback single Violet Hill was downloaded 2 million times in the week it was available for free on the band’s website. Heated excitement has attended the band’s announcement of three free concerts, in London, Barcelona and New York.

Before its release earlier this month, Guy Hands, much-maligned financier boss of the band’s embattled record label EMI, described their new album, Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, as “right across the world . . . the most anticipated album of the year”. For once in the music world, boardroom and shopfloor might be in agreement. When Coldplay’s serial perfectionism resulted in a delay in the release of their last album, 2005’s X&Y, it was blamed for a drop in EMI’s share price. When it was finally released, it sold 150,000 copies in one day in the UK. That week it topped the charts in 32 countries. In America, lead single Speed of Sound immediately walloped into the Top 10; the last British band to do that were the Beatles, with Hey Jude.

But the reviews were increasingly sniffy: X&Y was the sound of a stadium rock band more concerned with its very bigness than with meaning something. And the lyrics were trite. It would go on to sell 10 million copies. The commercial adoration and the critical vilification got to the band, and Martin in particular. Collecting two Brit Awards in 2006, the singer said: Continue reading

‘Coldplay fails in the karaoke market’: Chris

(

Mommey ! 😦

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin says that his group has failed as a band because they have not fared well in the karaoke market yet.

Martin admits that he would like his songs to be a success in the sing along category too.

“I’m really determined there should be more Coldplay songs in karaoke bars,” The Sun quoted him as saying.

“I’ve been into them and you open the lyrics book and there are a million Beatles songs.

“There’s dozens of Abba, Culture Club or even Bucks Fizz, but Coldplay? There will be two or at best three. If we could just get eight in every bar worldwide I’d be happy. I would know we’ve made it.

“I think there are three karaoke possibilities on Viva La Vida. It surely has to be the ultimate measure of success,” he added.

Martin also revealed that he is nowhere close to being able to perform a karaoke himself.

“I got up in a bar one night with my mate Tim Wheeler (from ASH) and we chose Bohemian Rhapsody. It was appalling,” he added.

Quote From Vocalist Chris Martin:

“We’re trying to get to the very highest level. 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.”

Trivia Fact:

Chris Martin appears as a zombie in the 2004 horror comedy film Shaun Of the Dead.

Early Days:

The four future members of Coldplay met as college students in London and became almost instant friends; the band grew out of their friendship. An early EP of only 500 copies got them a performance slot in the Manchester In the City music festival in 1998.

Success with “Yellow”:

Following the Manchester performance, connections with one talent scout led to another and ultimately a recording contract with Parlophone Records. A 1999 limited edition release titled The Blue Room received Continue reading

The most auspicious and hopeful song from Coldplay

Chris Singing Fix You from the Album X&Y

Chris Singing Fix You from the Album X&Y

About the song :

Fix You” is a song by Coldplay and is the fourth track on their 2005 album, X&Y. During live performances of the song all four members of the band sing, although on record only Chris and Will do. It was also released as the second single from that album in various countries. In the United Kingdom it was released on 2005-09-05 to avoid competition with Oasis’ “The Importance of Being Idle” (released 2005-08-22) in the UK Singles Chart.

On 14 September 2005, Coldplay released the Fix You EP on the iTunes Music Store. All of the sales went to the American Red Cross Hurricane 2005 Relief and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences’ MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund. This song was also played on Shelter from the Storm. It has also became a tribute song for the victims and eventually became the anthem for the event.

Fix You Music Video :

Watch the video of the song Fix You right here.

Writing The Song :

When writing the song, Chris Martin was influenced by Muse’s use of a church organ on the track “Megalomania” from their album Origin of Symmetry. Unable to gain access to one, Martin instead used an old keyboard that his late father-in-law (Bruce Paltrow) gave to his wife Gwyneth Paltrow. However, in other instances Martin has claimed that “Fix You” is a copy of Elbow’s 2003 anthem “Grace Under Pressure”.

Some sources claim Chris Martin wrote the song for his wife Gwyneth Paltrow after she suffered depression due to the death of her father Bruce Paltrow.

This song is written in E flat major.

Media Usage :

  • The song was used for a promo for the Jim and Pam love story saga on NBC’s hit show The Office
  • “Fix You” was used for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s special, in which homes Continue reading
