    12 Coldplay Months of 2010: MAY (8 Copies of Roadie)

    roadiemcginn.jpgFull review and poll: 12 Coldplay Months of 2010: MAY (8 Copies of ROADIE) [thanks mrman78]


    May was the month American Idol contestants covered 'The Scientist', Coldplay campaigned to save 6music, the much anticipated 'ROADIE' was delayed but eventually made it to us, Coldplay's fame soared, Glastonbury 2011 rumours began, Ash released 'Slash' footage, Roadie #43 debuted, the EMI drama continued and the Oracle delved into even more of our questions!


    Coldplay ruled the roost when it came to combined Facebook, Twitter and YouTube followers, according to Famecount. In May, Coldplay had 3.8 million Facebook fans, 2.8 million Twitter followers and more than 70,000 YouTube subscribers according to Famecount.com, the world's first online media measurement service. It gave the band a Famecount index of 57.9 per cent, making them just over half as popular as Barack Obama, who got a 100 per cent fame count and the No.1 spot when it comes to online presence. Globally, Coldplay came 12th in the world as a social media entity.

    After months of anticipation and a slight delay from it's original May 4th release date due to the volcanic ash fiasco, Matt McGuin's book "ROADIE: My Life on the Road with Coldplay" debuted! The forum was a-buzz with discussion and reviews regarding the new book, which is a stonker!


    Back in 2002 Ash made headlines with a DIY slasher movie they filmed on a camcorder whilst on tour. The film featured cameos from likes of Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland from Coldplay and the Foo Fighters Dave Grohl. Written by Jed Shepherd, it was never completed and was stored away like the Ark. With their A-Z single series ongoing Ash decided to dig it out it of their archive in May and compiled a 5 minute version - featuring Coldplay and Charlotte Hatherley - to use as an alternative video for current single Binary - letter Q in the series - and released this week.
