Tim Rice-Oxley was very kind but also sorta harshly rejected them because 'he wasn't into quintets'.

So Chris thought, "If we want a future, maybe we need another person in the band as our dedicated keyboardist," so he called his friend Tim Rice-Oxley.
Good thought !!

While Chris mentally postponed the finding of a fifth member for his band, there was one other thing that kept him up at night: He was aware of the fact that his band had an awful name, but he could for the life of it not think of any better name.

After thinking about it for days, he came up with a name he thought would fit the band perfectly, One Direction. However, when he suggested this name to the other members, it was shot down immediatly. Now they were back to square one.

Another one of them suggested Starfish, and that was turned down as well.

But this proposal was turned down as well. Not feeling they were getting anywhere, Chris felt very depressed and walked the streets of London with his head hung when he suddenly bumped into an old friend of his, Tim Crompton.

Tim said to Chris, "Why are you feeling down?"

"Well, you know Tim, I just can't stand the name of my band."

"What is it Chris?"

"Well, um, it's..."

"Come on, spit it out"

"It's..um..Starfish"

-abrupt laughter- oh my god almighty, bloody hell mate, you got a band name that'll put you in Her Majesty's Pleasure. Have you lost the plot?

"I..."

"Oh no worries Chris, I'm only pulling your leg. I mean you seriously will be snookered if you go around callin yourself that. You need a good name...I know, I don't want mine anymore, you can have it"

"What is it?"

"The Coldplay"

"The Coldplay... It does have a good bit of a ring to it dudnit?.. Well except the 'the'..."

After ruling out "Hot Plate" and "The Chris Martin Band", the boys found their name.

But it was a good paragraph :p

"So Tim told me he found The Coldplay too depressing a name for his band, but what do you think ? It may just fit the mood of the music we make.." said Chris to the boys during the next rehearsal.
