The Best Band in the World
Can there be the perfect band? No. Can there be a "best?" Yes. Kobe Bryant is the best basketball player in the world. Coldplay is the best band in the world. You know why? They write the best songs. Chris Martin is one of the best performers our generation has known. Thank you Coldplay - for making me write and write - trying to find and fish for that special song. If I can find that fish, I will die a content, young lad! If you don't like Coldplay, you are probably mad that they went pop. The point of good music is to go pop. You can't be anti-establishment when the establishment is actually novel. Great things do slip into mass arenas - rarely, but it happens. This is an example of stadium status. Enjoy.
