Synopsis:

Capturing the world's attention with soulful songs filled with raw emotion, Coldplay burst onto the music scene with 'Yellow' in 2000. Following this rapid success, their debut album Parachutes went straight to number one in the album charts and has since sold over five million copies worldwide. Coldplay's second album A Rush of Blood to the Head took the world by storm, hitting the number one spot in twelve countries within one week of release. Coldplay's successful 2003 US tour, took their appeal to a global scale. Phil O'Brien's biography charts the meteoric rise of the self confessed 'geeky kids', from their graduate days through to their Grammy award winning status as Rock Superstars. It gives the lowdown on Martin's extraordinary relationship with Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow and their new baby Apple, the astronomic commercial highs and lows of life on the road, and all the ensuing gossip. This is the definitive biography of a band loved by millions of all ages across the globe, and poised to become rock legends on a par with internationally renowned bands such as Oasis and U2.

Book Description Plexus Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Author Phil O'Brien charts the ascension of one of the greatest rock bands in the world today. In her fascinatingly introspective account, she tells how a band led by an introverted, self-confessed 'geek' struck such a huge emotional chord with their audience. The book looks at the affect of fame upon the band, particularly on leader Chris Martin. Apart from regularly finding themselves to be cover stars of the music press, Martin's relationship with Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow has dragged him into the world of tabloid features and gossip columns. Considered a most unlikely couple by the press, the attention has caused Martin to retreat from the limelight in order to focus solely on music and worthy social causes. Despite trying to hop off of the media merry-go-round, however, the sensitive songwriter recently commented triumphantly, at a London Earl's Court concert with Paltrow in attendance, 'This proves geeky kids can win through!' Coldplay: Look at the Stars charts the continuing rise to world stardom of those same kids now that they are grown up and reaching for the stars. Seller Inventory # AAT9780859653497
