Some cynics believe that record companies decide which songs their artists should release based on a computer programme. Maybe some do, but Coldplay have a far simpler method – Chris Martin’s kids tell him which tracks will be hits.
According to The Sun, Chris and Gwyneth’s sprogs Apple and Moses (aged eight and six) let their dad know which of his tunes make the grade. Martin told them:
“Kids are very honest – if they start singing a song it’s because they like it. It’s a great gauge.”
And it seems they also come in handy for keeping his ego in check, as the Speed Of Sound singer admitted, “When we played Wembley Stadium I was like, ‘Wow, now we are big rock stars’, but next morning the kids were saying, ‘get me some pancakes’.”
Pancakes, you say? And when are these Coldplay pancakes being released to the public?
