That was really funny! Loved it! Btw, is it just me do the guys always seem nervous about what Chris might actually say in interviews (like they'll look at each other)?
Interesting question. Who knows..I always kinda perceived it as them paying attention to what he is saying. especially after GS I kinda have a feeling the other 3 band members are quite protective of Chris. He is also the spokesman and all and I always see them as quietly encouraging him along.

Oh my god, what an embarassing interview. Chris must have been drunk. Cringeworthy.

Liked it how Simon Pegg stood up for his friend though.

Or rolling their eyes and giving him unimpressed looks in the case of Will :D
Meh I dont think so. They seem all pretty tight and on the same wavelength, however Chris is the craziest of them all and thats probably why 98% of the songs originate from him :) All great artists are a bit crazy :)

i think will is the most encouraging one actually. since about viva, i have noticed most times when chris is in trouble or need help, he turns to will.

there was a video from viva era. they played around the world before starting the tour in england and the first show they played, chris almost stops yellow and runs to talk to will. there was an interview with chris later during mylo and he said that there was no audience noise when they started yellow and he felt like running off the stage. and will calmed him down. in the video chris made the audience sing the outro to yellow over and over to "get his confidence up". i still remember that well because it showed just how the band worked.

Quite an interesting anecdote! They said multiple times Will is the rock of the whole group, so no wonder Chris (or I think also the others) would turn to him in moments like these. I also think he is the most level headed of all, he just looks so wise and Yoda-like haha

it was from the first or second day of the concerts in england, around the end of november or early december 2008. i'll try to look it up, but it's been a long time. the video was on youtube.

But then you know it´d be a just punishment. Will is the just King of Coldplayland haha

Incidentally I find the instruments they play reflect very well their roles/personalities in the context of the band. Will is the fundation (as the drums are of a song), Guy I think is also quite level headed while being a bit more dynamic than Will (like a bass is still the fundation of all the guitars but still less fundamental than the drums), Jonny and his scintillating solos just reflect his own sparkling and positive nature (just look at his smile LOL) and Chris of course is the ultimate voice of the melody in the song (like in his role in the band he ´s the one where most songs originate from). I kinda love how cohesive they are in all their aspects ! haha No wonder they function so well as a band.

Chris missed his calling as an ornithologist :eek: Either that or an astronomer.

@The Adversary So your AROBTTH Head is bleeding ? Is that a statement about Coldplay as a whole or just an artwork you liked ?

It was just an artwork I liked but I like your interpretation better. Yes, I'm going with that and I came up with it all by myself if anyone asks ;)

I know, I just took a long, hard look at my AROBTTH cd but couldnt see it. Then again, I don't wanna be corrupted and see a goat every time I look at AROBTTH
