The Journey of Coldplay

Last night was a big night for Coldplay.  They were feature on 60 minutes, which you can view here.  If your interested in going through the 12 year history of the band and learning about them, check it out.  It’s about a 13 minute interview and you learn a lot, plus you can see why I like them so much!  They speak about the two groups that accused Coldplay of steeling their music.  They also discuss lead singer, Chris Martin’s, crazy actions on stage and his relationship with celebrity Gweneth Paltrow.  

Then Coldplay was up for 7 Grammy Nominations  and winning 3 of them!

Record of the Year – Viva La Vida
Album of the Year – Viva La Vida Or Death and All of His Friends

Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals – Viva La Vida (Win)

The Grammy’s also released this picture, which forms the faces of band with the various songs that the band loves and is influenced by.

One more item to post, this is the video of them performing last night at the 51st Grammy Awards.  They play 2 songs, “Lost?” the acoustic version along with Jay Z’s rap from Coldplay’s Prospek’s March.  Then they perform Viva La Vida.

That’s it for now.  I really suggest you check out the 60 minutes interview at the top, it’s pretty amazing.  Enjoy!

  1. I think this was the highest selling album of the whole year! Coldplay did an excellent job of trying to be creative and bring in classical elements for their title track
