    Danny's Duet Offer For Chris Martin

    dannymcnamara.jpgDanny McNamara hasn't ruled out a future hit single with his mate Chris Martin.


    The Embrace singer, who helped Coldplay at the start of their career by giving them support slots at their gigs in 2000, has talked of a possible collaboration.


    He said: "I've said to Chris that we should write a song together. He writes great verses and I write great choruses so we should do it at some point. It'll surely be a hit."


    More on this here

    Newlywed Chris Martin has spoken for the first time about his shock wedding to Gwyneth Paltrow and he told me: “I love being married.”In a rare and revealing chat the shy Coldplay singer also said he is thrilled at the prospect of becoming a dad. Chris, 26, and Oscar winner Gwyneth, 31, are expecting their first child next summer. He has never before spoken about his love for the Hollywood beauty or the news he is to be a dad.But with me he was open, funny and almost confessional as he talked about his life and the future for him, Gwyneth and his band. The couple ran off to California and married in secret days after telling the world of their baby joy two weeks ago.There were no family or friends present — just them and a judge in a Santa Barbara hotel. The couple celebrated by taking a private jet to Mexico for a brief honeymoon. Chris is notoriously coy when it comes to discussing his private life. As we talk he fiddles nervously with his silver wedding ring.He tells me exclusively: “I guess you can say we eloped. It was great because we got married without any fuss. I’d have eloped even if I wasn’t famous and ran a shop. Sometimes I think I’m like the Hugh Grant character from Notting Hill who runs the bookshop. Just an ordinary bloke that has extraordinary things happen to him. It’s been an amazing year for me. But it’s all been a bit mad with the media interest in us. We’re not the kind of people to do the red carpet thing and go to lots of showbiz parties. We’re just normal people who want a normal life. But don’t get me wrong, I love the thought of having babies and I love being married.”Chris shares a luxury apartment with his new bride in London’s plush Belgravia.They have spent the past year jetting around the globe, spending much of their time in New York and Los Angeles, where Gwyneth was brought up.But now the couple plan to take some time off to enjoy being married — and await the new arrival.Devon-born Chris says: “London is, and always will be, our home. We’ve got no intention to live in America. I sometimes get fed-up with the attention we get here, but it would never make me give up my home. I feel very protective towards my wife. But I’m no different to anyone else. Sometimes I react, but I don’t go round punching photographers.”Coldplay’s 2002 CD A Rush Of Blood To The Head has sold more than eight million copies worldwide. The band have been nominated for Record Of The Year at February’s 2004 Grammys for their single, Clocks. This year has seen them take countless trophies, including Brit Awards, MTV awards and Bizarre Poll gongs.Chris has unfairly been labelled “boring” because he doesn’t drink, smoke or take drugs. True, he is as far removed as you can get from the likes of loutish Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher — who in March branded Chris a “nobhead student” and Gwyneth a “gawky bird”. But in the flesh Chris is funny, charming and intelligent and cracks jokes to disguise his shyness. He is far from boring. He and Gwyneth, who dated for 18 months, are the perfect match. They are polite and caring people whose talent has brought them wealth and fame. Chris says: “Everyone says my wife and I are miserable but we’re not. We’re happy people.”When I ask Chris if he and Gwyneth have chosen any names for their baby, his humour really comes out. He says: “I’m thinking of calling it Liam or Noel. Apparently Liam said a few things about me that weren’t too complimentary but I think I’ll repay the compliment by naming the baby after them. “I would like to buy Noel Gallagher’s place in the country. We could call it Clocks Towers. . . that was a joke.”Chris and his bandmates, Jon Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion, are working on a follow-up to A Rush Of Blood To The Head. But fans will have to wait until 2005 to hear the new material. He explains: “I want time off because I’ve had a mad year. I think people need a rest from Coldplay. There’s a real pressure on us now, too. We’ve become obsessed with trying to deliver something amazing. I hope people aren’t sick of us. We’ve loved touring the US but we’re still not that big in America. I’d like to thank Sun readers for supporting us. I don’t think we would be where we are today without them.”Despite the band’s success, Chris is still nervous about their future. He says: “I’m always worried it could end tomorrow. There’s no guarantee people are not going to get fed-up with us. Everyone assumes we’re multi-millionaires because we’ve sold a lot of albums but none of us are rich enough to retire. The most extravagant thing I’ve bought is 95 hooded tops all the same. It means I can hide when I walk out of my front door.”That is exactly what Chris plans to do next year. Somehow I doubt he will manage it. Chris on …Gwyneth: “Everyone keeps saying my wife and I are miserable but we’re not. We’re happy people.”Chris on …Marriage: “I’d have eloped even if I ran a shop.
