Chris Martin has duplicated Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke's idea to compare his band to the United Nations - and Martin insists he would represent the military might of America.
The Coldplay singer-turned-political campaigner admits he steals many ideas from Yorke - and this is one of his favourites, as he knows exactly which powerful country each member of Coldplay would be.
Martin says: "Thom Yorke once drew a parallel between his band and the UN, and he said, 'Well, I'm America.' And with our band, I'm America. Jonny (Buckland) is definitely China: actually more intelligent and better than me; he just doesn't talk as much.
"Guy (Berryman) is probably Italy or Spain: somewhere you have a good time that adds the artistic creativity. And Will (Champion) is definitely Russia: hardcore, solid, hard to win over, but once won, loyal as royal. It's a very good parallel. And not the first thing we've stolen from Radiohead."
