Hi,

http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/5940051/22_u2

Since roger said coldplay are crap i think chris martin takes every opportunity to indirectly criticise or dismiss queen. i just think it's funny. Take the link above where he discusses U2 and you can sense that he's indirectly referring to queen...ye'll get the jist.

Roger was right - all their songs are the same, and they're depressing. Roger obviously has good taste, and chris martin thinks he's great - loser!!

Article is from April 15, 2004 - I believe Roger's words about the Coldplay crap happened later (June 2005). And actually he said "everything they do sounds too similar", but not "crap". Though it is.

Oh it's blatant, isn't it? The way the word "Queen" does not appear in the article is a dead giveaway...

plus the rest of it is SOOOO spot on - the ever changing lineup of ZZ Top...

I wouldn't necessarily say they're bad composers. More like they're afraid to move away from their comfort zone.

I think they're good composers and good performers, but Chris should sing more with his natural voice instead of that annoying falsetto. And the drummer should play more guitar.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Seb, why they're good composers?

- Just several chords: songs's structures are simple (I love good simple songs but they have just ONLY simple structure songs). No sequences (just vesre-chorus-sequences)
- Where is beautiful melodies?
- Where is songs's variety?

What make them at least good composers?

I confess, I've heard just several albums and one live album.

'Trouble' and 'Don't Panic' don't sound alike at all. 'Clocks' (a song I hate) is quite different from the others too. I like 'Fix You' although I think it's tad overrated.

All in all, Coldplay are a good band. Of course not as good or versatile as Radiohead (how can you compare a VW Beetle with a Ferrari?) or others, but still good.

And U2 are the only band who have been together over 30 years and still haven't learnt how to play their instruments ;)

Where does Chris Martin indirectly criticize Queen in that article?

Ok, I'm not going to get into a debate about this because I don't see any reason why I have to defend my musical tastes, but I love Coldplay, and I quite like U2. Just because Coldplay don't like Queen doesn't mean I have to hate Coldplay. One of my best friends doesn't like Queen.
Coldplay is one of my favourite bands. Their songs don't all sound the same, and I love the lyrics of them. Like in Fix You: "When you get what you want, but not what you need". I dunno, I just like them. *shrugs*

I fully agree! The thing that I dislike the most about U2 is that they are so weak on their instruments.Compare Queen's playing with U2's playing and you'll hear it very good. I have to say that they are quite original though.the edge is unique(but always the same)and bono tries to put emotion in his vocals altough his voice is weak
