Chris Marin is well on his way to becoming the weirdest man in rock and roll, he is a passive aggressive hot mess unable to manage the middle ground between his inflated ego and Public School Boy "Thank you Sir, may I have another" psychosis.
How fucked up is Martin? He apologizes to an interviewer for being late when he is, in fact early. He is BIZARRO. You know what, he is the anti-Win Butler, Butler can' stop primping and looking down at the world, Martin can't stop groveling and kissing up.
Last Thursday, Coldplay were playing a charity gig in London when in the middle of "The Scientist" -a very very bad ballad off their first album, Chris according to the Sun (and contact.music where I aggregated it) , he stopped the concert because a fan was playing along on her tambourine. He told her "'This is not a tambourine song – I don't mean to be rude. Let me be honest with you, we tried tambourine on the recording and had to scrap it – so we have been playing it for 10 years with no tambourine. It probably sounds great, but I'm just used to it without tambourine. Don't take it personally. I can't see what you look like, but you look lovely and sound fantastic. Don't take this to be some kind of anti-tambourine rally or rant against the tambourine. It's one of my favorite instruments. promise the next song is a tambourine frenzy, you can go crazy."
Yep, this guy is indeed a rock star. He should pal with Kanye West not Jay-Z.
