I miss old Coldplay

    I saw them in Atlanta in 2002 on the rail. Elton John came out and played piano on Yellow. It was sublime. And it was a time when I thought Chris Martin was endearing. Now I find him and his music annoying. Guess we all have to grow up sometime. (Parachutes is still one of my fave albums, though)

    I still find Chris Martin endearing, but mostly when he's on stage with other musicians and not when he's with Coldplay. Their newer stuff makes me cringe. I do love Parachutes, and I love his enthusiasm for music and many of the musicians that I love. I mean, the dude was basically Ed's backing musician for Global Citizen, when in fact his name came before Ed's in the billing. I think that was mighty humble of him. And he got Michael Stipe to come out of retirement to sing at the Sandy benefit:

    Oh for sure, Chris Martin is a great humanitarian and seems like a good guy. I think I just grew out of Coldplay's music at some point. That Super Bowl performance last year was cringe worthy.

  • Great thread. I was a huge fan back in early 2000's, pre-Gwyneth.

    I dig the new song Hypnotised. Great music. Not a huge Coldplay fan though.
