An Amazing Band, originally called 'Starfish' (thank god they changed it!!)
Have 3 albums: 'Parachutes' (2000) 'A Rush of Blood to the Head' (2002) and there newest 'X&Y' (2005)
The band members are Chris Martin (vocals, piano, guitar) Jonny Buckland (guitar, harmonics) Guy Berryman (Bass) and Will Champion (drums)
A lot of people debate over which band is better, Radiohead or Coldplay...and the answer is Radiohead, in my opinion, because they started it all. If Radiohead hadn't existed would Coldplay sound the way they do? Plus Thom Yorke has a better voice and piano skills than Chris Martin. Also if you listen to 'Just' by Radiohead you could never see coldplay writing/playing or singing anything like that... because they are like the mellow, caffeine-free Radiohead. Not that, that is a bad thing because they still rock. Some people also think they are overrated but they have amazing talent and a unique sound so don't knock it until you've listened to them.
4 Grammies, 4 Brit awards and almost 17 million album sales says something about the band.
Chris Martin is also huge charity work. Go check out www.maketradefair.com and see all the great stuff he's done.
Their hit songs and my favorites: Yellow, Trouble, Shiver, Clocks, The Scientist, In my Place, Don't Panic, God put a Smile Upon Your Face, Spies, Politik, Green Eyes, For You, Warning Sign, Moses, Daylight, Everythings Not Lost, Amsterdam, Beautiful World, Only Superstition, Speed of Sound & lots more.
