  7. 00:00:09,568 --> 00:00:12,478
  8. Hello?
  9. - Hi, hey, Chris, it's Mat.
  10.  
  11. 2
  12. 00:00:12,658 --> 00:00:15,568
  13. - Mat, how you doing?
  14. - I'm good. Can you talk?
  15.  
  16. 3
  17. 00:00:15,748 --> 00:00:18,228
  18. Yeah, it's
  19. a good time. How are you?
  20.  
  21. 4
  22. 00:00:18,398 --> 00:00:19,718
  23. I'm good, I was just...
  24. I was just wondering
  25.  
  26. 5
  27. 00:00:19,743 --> 00:00:22,034
  28. if you had a chance
  29. to see the film yet.
  30.  
  31. 6
  32. 00:00:22,218 --> 00:00:25,758
  33. Uh, the truth is, Mat, I don't
  34. think I'm gonna be able to do it.
  35.  
  36. 7
  37. 00:00:25,928 --> 00:00:31,808
  38. I feel like if I see it, I might just
  39. wanna remove myself from the film.
  40.  
  41. 8
  42. 00:00:31,978 --> 00:00:36,328
  43. - So, if it's okay with
  44. you, could I just trust you on it?
  45.  
  46. 9
  47. 00:00:36,508 --> 00:00:38,148
  48. - Okay.
  49. - If you don't mind.
  50.  
  51. 10
  52. 00:00:38,288 --> 00:00:40,008
  53. I just feel like
  54. we've known you for so long
  55.  
  56. 11
  57. 00:00:40,158 --> 00:00:41,948
  58. and we trust you
  59. and we love you.
  60.  
  61. 12
  62. 00:00:42,118 --> 00:00:44,248
  63. You just make the film
  64. you wanna make
  65.  
  66. 13
  67. 00:00:44,428 --> 00:00:47,258
  68. and all I ask is please
  69. could you not open the film
  70.  
  71. 14
  72. 00:00:47,428 --> 00:00:49,668
  73. with one of those shots of the
  74. band walking to the stage,
  75.  
  76. 15
  77. 00:00:49,738 --> 00:00:51,698
  78. 'cause I feel like
  79. that's been done.
  80.  
  81. 16
  82. 00:00:51,868 --> 00:00:53,518
  83. - Really?
  84. - Yeah.
  85.  
  86. 17
  87. 00:00:53,698 --> 00:00:55,414
  88. Okay. Well, leave it with me.
  89. I'll see what I can do.
  90.  
  91. 18
  92. 00:00:55,438 --> 00:00:56,958
  93. - Thanks, Mat.
  94. - Yeah.
  95.  
  96. 19
  97. 00:00:57,138 --> 00:00:58,898
  98. - Speak to you soon.
  99. - Bye-bye.
  100.  
  101. 20
  102. 00:02:06,768 --> 00:02:10,638
  103. I don't
  104. want to rule or conquer anyone.
  105.  
  106. 21
  107. 00:02:10,818 --> 00:02:12,598
  108. I should like to help everyone
  109. if possible...
  110.  
  111. 22
  112. 00:02:12,778 --> 00:02:15,868
  113. Jew, Gentile, black man, white.
  114.  
  115. 23
  116. 00:02:16,038 --> 00:02:17,698
  117. We all want to help one another.
  118.  
  119. 24
  120. 00:02:17,868 --> 00:02:19,868
  121. Human beings are like that.
  122.  
  123. 25
  124. 00:02:20,048 --> 00:02:22,308
  125. We don't want to hate
  126. or to despise one another.
  127.  
  128. 26
  129. 00:02:22,478 --> 00:02:25,878
  130. In this world there's room for everyone.
  131. The good earth is rich.
  132.  
  133. 27
  134. 00:02:26,048 --> 00:02:29,398
  135. For those who can hear me,
  136. I say do not despair.
  137.  
  138. 28
  139. 00:02:29,578 --> 00:02:32,968
  140. The hate of men will pass
  141. and dictators die,
  142.  
  143. 29
  144. 00:02:33,148 --> 00:02:36,448
  145. and the power they took from the
  146. people will return to the people.
  147.  
  148. 30
  149. 00:02:36,628 --> 00:02:38,408
  150. The kingdom of God
  151. is within men,
  152.  
  153. 31
  154. 00:02:38,588 --> 00:02:40,368
  155. not one man, nor a group of men,
  156.  
  157. 32
  158. 00:02:40,538 --> 00:02:42,068
  159. but in all men, in you!
  160.  
  161. 33
  162. 00:02:42,238 --> 00:02:44,198
  163. You, the people, have the power!
  164.  
  165. 34
  166. 00:02:44,368 --> 00:02:47,328
  167. The power to create machines,
  168. the power to create happiness,
  169.  
  170. 35
  171. 00:02:47,508 --> 00:02:50,858
  172. you, the people, have the power to
  173. make this life free and beautiful,
  174.  
  175. 36
  176. 00:02:51,028 --> 00:02:52,948
  177. to make this life
  178. a wonderful adventure!
  179.  
  180. 37
  181. 00:02:53,118 --> 00:02:56,338
  182. A wonderful adventure!
  183.  
  184. 38
  185. 00:03:01,128 --> 00:03:05,478
  186. A wonderful adventure!
  187.  
  188. 39
  189. 00:04:30,778 --> 00:04:34,178
  190. A Head Full Of Dreams is somewhere
  191. we've been trying to go for a long time.
  192.  
  193. 40
  194. 00:04:35,438 --> 00:04:39,138
  195. The journey has been
  196. so incremental and so episodic,
  197.  
  198. 41
  199. 00:04:39,318 --> 00:04:41,358
  200. it's just a mountain
  201. that keeps getting higher.
  202.  
  203. 42
  204. 00:04:41,528 --> 00:04:43,488
  205. If I ever turn round
  206. and look down,
  207.  
  208. 43
  209. 00:04:43,668 --> 00:04:46,708
  210. I think will I just be amazed
  211. about how on earth we got here?
  212.  
  213. 44
  214. 00:04:49,148 --> 00:04:50,798
  215. There's not really
  216. a day goes by
  217.  
  218. 45
  219. 00:04:50,978 --> 00:04:54,588
  220. that I don't get a reminder
  221. of how very fortunate I am,
  222.  
  223. 46
  224. 00:04:54,768 --> 00:04:56,768
  225. first of all,
  226. to have met the other guys
  227.  
  228. 47
  229. 00:04:56,938 --> 00:04:59,678
  230. and that things just happened
  231. in the way that they did.
  232.  
  233. 48
  234. 00:05:00,508 --> 00:05:02,768
  235. Our friendships
  236. have somehow survived
  237.  
  238. 49
  239. 00:05:02,948 --> 00:05:05,818
  240. and stayed quite similar
  241. to how they were.
  242.  
  243. 50
  244. 00:05:05,988 --> 00:05:08,078
  245. We've spent half our lives
  246. together now.
  247.  
  248. 51
  249. 00:05:08,258 --> 00:05:12,478
  250. I've spent more time with these people
  251. than almost anybody else.
  252.  
  253. 52
  254. 00:05:12,868 --> 00:05:16,128
  255. It's more like family, it's more
  256. like brothers, actually, than friends.
  257.  
  258. 53
  259. 00:05:16,308 --> 00:05:19,308
  260. I think we all think about what
  261. we'd be doing with our lives
  262.  
  263. 54
  264. 00:05:19,488 --> 00:05:21,178
  265. if we hadn't met each other.
  266.  
  267. 55
  268. 00:05:21,358 --> 00:05:23,658
  269. I mean, it's almost terrifying
  270. thinking about it, really.
  271.  
  272. 56
  273. 00:05:28,188 --> 00:05:29,538
  274. - Cool.
  275. - Nice.
  276.  
  277. 57
  278. 00:05:29,708 --> 00:05:31,498
  279. Can you turn the lights down
  280. a tiny bit?
  281.  
  282. 58
  283. 00:05:33,668 --> 00:05:35,718
  284. Just this one down a bit.
  285. Thanks, bro.
  286.  
  287. 59
  288. 00:05:36,548 --> 00:05:37,548
  289. Cool, cool, cool.
  290.  
  291. 60
  292. 00:05:39,418 --> 00:05:43,898
  293. What are we singing?
  294.  
  295. 61
  296. 00:07:10,598 --> 00:07:11,768
  297. Nice.
  298.  
  299. 62
  300. 00:07:11,948 --> 00:07:13,444
  301. Great work, fellers.
  302.  
  303. 63
  304. 00:07:13,468 --> 00:07:15,598
  305. Yeah, that's it. That's it.
  306.  
  307. 64
  308. 00:07:15,778 --> 00:07:17,388
  309. Wait, list...
  310. Listen to the applause.
  311.  
  312. 65
  313. 00:07:22,608 --> 00:07:25,364
  314. If you don't like it, don't worry about it.
  315. I'm having fun. You know what I mean?
  316.  
  317. 66
  318. 00:07:25,388 --> 00:07:27,218
  319. That's how it makes me feel.
  320.  
  321. 67
  322. 00:07:27,398 --> 00:07:29,438
  323. Dad, I love this song. Thank you, baby.
  324.  
  325. 68
  326. 00:07:29,618 --> 00:07:32,398
  327. And thank you for saying
  328. what I paid you to say earlier.
  329.  
  330. 69
  331. 00:07:34,968 --> 00:07:36,488
  332. I was saying to the others,
  333.  
  334. 70
  335. 00:07:36,668 --> 00:07:39,578
  336. to see things that were recorded
  337. 20 years ago, you know,
  338.  
  339. 71
  340. 00:07:39,758 --> 00:07:42,538
  341. I had no recollection of anyone
  342. having a camera back then...
  343.  
  344. 72
  345. 00:07:42,718 --> 00:07:44,408
  346. Is a really strange sensation.
  347.  
  348. 73
  349. 00:07:48,978 --> 00:07:52,458
  350. What had become really distant
  351. memories came flooding back to me.
  352.  
  353. 74
  354. 00:07:52,638 --> 00:07:55,418
  355. You know, our lives have changed
  356. in so many ways.
  357.  
  358. 75
  359. 00:07:56,078 --> 00:07:58,818
  360. And when I think back
  361. to what our first album was...
  362.  
  363. 76
  364. 00:07:58,988 --> 00:08:00,988
  365. You know,
  366. if you listen to Parachutesnow,
  367.  
  368. 77
  369. 00:08:01,168 --> 00:08:04,688
  370. it's very acoustic and it's very
  371. small and it's very intimate.
  372.  
  373. 78
  374. 00:08:11,738 --> 00:08:15,268
  375. And then if you fast forward
  376. to A Head Full Of Dreams,
  377.  
  378. 79
  379. 00:08:15,438 --> 00:08:17,528
  380. it's a very different thing
  381. altogether.
  382.  
  383. 80
  384. 00:08:17,708 --> 00:08:20,668
  385. Looking back at some of the
  386. old footage, underneath it all,
  387.  
  388. 81
  389. 00:08:20,838 --> 00:08:23,888
  390. I still see the same people then
  391. as we are today.
  392.  
  393. 82
  394. 00:08:24,058 --> 00:08:27,668
  395. To really get the full story, you've
  396. got to go back to when we met.
  397.  
  398. 83
  399. 00:08:27,848 --> 00:08:32,068
  400. I mean, it really does
  401. feel like a lifetime ago.
  402.  
  403. 84
  404. 00:08:32,238 --> 00:08:36,598
  405. We were friends for almost a year
  406. before we played any music together.
  407.  
  408. 85
  409. 00:08:36,768 --> 00:08:40,248
  410. We all lived in the same
  411. student halls of residence.
  412.  
  413. 86
  414. 00:08:41,598 --> 00:08:44,208
  415. Most people would've found
  416. their bandmates by advertising.
  417.  
  418. 87
  419. 00:08:44,388 --> 00:08:47,648
  420. "Drummer required" in the back of
  421. the NME or something like that.
  422.  
  423. 88
  424. 00:08:49,738 --> 00:08:51,998
  425. Fuck it!
  426. - I think in our case, it was different
  427.  
  428. 89
  429. 00:08:52,178 --> 00:08:55,528
  430. because we all really knew this is
  431. the group that we want to form.
  432.  
  433. 90
  434. 00:08:55,698 --> 00:08:57,138
  435. This is who we want to be with.
  436.  
  437. 91
  438. 00:09:00,048 --> 00:09:02,268
  439. We met at
  440. University College London.
  441.  
  442. 92
  443. 00:09:02,448 --> 00:09:06,408
  444. We were all studying
  445. to be in bands.
  446.  
  447. 93
  448. 00:09:15,628 --> 00:09:17,028
  449. I've been expecting you,
  450. come on in.
  451.  
  452. 94
  453. 00:09:18,458 --> 00:09:20,598
  454. Just your Jones person?
  455.  
  456. 95
  457. 00:09:21,378 --> 00:09:22,688
  458. Let me show you around.
  459.  
  460. 96
  461. 00:09:22,858 --> 00:09:25,208
  462. College was just a sideline,
  463. you know.
  464.  
  465. 97
  466. 00:09:25,378 --> 00:09:28,418
  467. I thought it was a good place to meet
  468. people 'cause I wanted to be in a band.
  469.  
  470. 98
  471. 00:09:28,518 --> 00:09:30,208
  472. I got there,
  473. got to this big place,
  474.  
  475. 99
  476. 00:09:30,388 --> 00:09:32,268
  477. Ramsay Hall it was called,
  478. Tottenham Court Road.
  479.  
  480. 100
  481. 00:09:33,738 --> 00:09:36,348
  482. That block hasn't changed a bit.
  483. That was where we lived.
  484.  
  485. 101
  486. 00:09:36,528 --> 00:09:38,738
  487. - Looks quite bucolic now, doesn't it?
  488. - Yeah.
  489.  
  490. 102
  491. 00:09:38,918 --> 00:09:41,088
  492. Didn't look like that
  493. then.
  494.  
  495. 103
  496. 00:09:41,268 --> 00:09:44,838
  497. I remember the first day I got here,
  498. a tramp was sick outside my room.
  499.  
  500. 104
  501. 00:09:45,008 --> 00:09:47,358
  502. Lots of musicians in this hall,
  503. weren't there?
  504.  
  505. 105
  506. 00:09:47,538 --> 00:09:50,498
  507. Five or six bands
  508. were spawned in our year.
  509.  
  510. 106
  511. 00:09:51,538 --> 00:09:53,824
  512. There was a lot of sniffing out
  513. at the beginning, wasn't there?
  514.  
  515. 107
  516. 00:09:53,848 --> 00:09:55,628
  517. Like, who does what?
  518. Who's a guitarist?
  519.  
  520. 108
  521. 00:09:55,808 --> 00:09:57,750
  522. There was a bass player
  523. on the third floor.
  524.  
  525. 109
  526. 00:09:59,068 --> 00:10:01,848
  527. Chris was like this massive
  528. ball of energy and hair.
  529.  
  530. 110
  531. 00:10:02,028 --> 00:10:04,248
  532. Yeah, I remember he had
  533. very long hair,
  534.  
  535. 111
  536. 00:10:04,418 --> 00:10:06,468
  537. quite unlike anyone
  538. I'd ever met before.
  539.  
  540. 112
  541. 00:10:06,818 --> 00:10:08,858
  542. I would always be
  543. showing off saying,
  544.  
  545. 113
  546. 00:10:09,038 --> 00:10:11,678
  547. "I play songs, I play songs" to
  548. anyone that would listen, you know?

  593.  
  594. 123
  595. 00:10:48,418 --> 00:10:50,598
  596. Back in 1996 when we met,
  597.  
  598. 124
  599. 00:10:50,768 --> 00:10:52,778
  600. I didn't think Jonny spoke
  601. at all.
  602.  
  603. 125
  604. 00:10:52,948 --> 00:10:54,908
  605. He was just this stoned guy
  606. in the corner
  607.  
  608. 126
  609. 00:10:55,078 --> 00:10:57,534
  610. that if you said something he
  611. would just, like, smile.
  612.  
  613. 127
  614. 00:10:57,558 --> 00:10:59,558
  615. Yeah, we got on pretty well
  616. straightaway,
  617.  
  618. 128
  619. 00:10:59,738 --> 00:11:02,218
  620. but you know, you can't start
  621. playing music on your first date.
  622.  
  623. 129
  624. 00:11:02,648 --> 00:11:06,788
  625. I came to London solely to find some people
  626. to be in a band with and make music.
  627.  
  628. 130
  629. 00:11:08,308 --> 00:11:11,708
  630. I'd wanted to do this
  631. from when I was a small boy,
  632.  
  633. 131
  634. 00:11:11,878 --> 00:11:15,008
  635. but you never really imagine
  636. that it's possible.
  637.  
  638. 132
  639. 00:11:16,448 --> 00:11:17,968
  640. One day I came into the room
  641. he was in,
  642.  
  643. 133
  644. 00:11:18,018 --> 00:11:19,538
  645. and Jonny had a guitar,
  646. and I was like,
  647.  
  648. 134
  649. 00:11:19,578 --> 00:11:20,734
  650. "I didn't know
  651. you played guitar."
  652.  
  653. 135
  654. 00:11:20,758 --> 00:11:21,888
  655. Then he started playing.
  656.  
  657. 136
  658. 00:11:24,148 --> 00:11:26,238
  659. And something in me
  660. was switched.
  661.  
  662. 137
  663. 00:11:26,418 --> 00:11:28,304
  664. I was like, "This is the guy I've
  665. been looking for my whole life."
  666.  
  667. 138
  668. 00:11:28,328 --> 00:11:30,418
  669. Chuck! Chuck, it's Marvin.
  670.  
  671. 139
  672. 00:11:30,598 --> 00:11:33,418
  673. Like in Back to the Future
  674. where Chuck's cousin Marvin
  675.  
  676. 140
  677. 00:11:34,468 --> 00:11:37,378
  678. calls Chuck Berry and says, "I've got
  679. that new sound you're looking for."
  680.  
  681. 141
  682. 00:11:37,558 --> 00:11:39,338
  683. Well, listen to this!
  684.  
  685. 142
  686. 00:11:40,948 --> 00:11:42,868
  687. It was
  688. love at first sight for me.
  689.  
  690. 143
  691. 00:11:43,518 --> 00:11:45,348
  692. He took a little longer
  693. to convince.
  694.  
  695. 144
  696. 00:11:49,958 --> 00:11:52,178
  697. When I first started playing
  698. with Chris,
  699.  
  700. 145
  701. 00:11:52,358 --> 00:11:56,578
  702. I thought, "He's so good, I think
  703. we might do something," you know.
  704.  
  705. 146
  706. 00:12:04,888 --> 00:12:07,678
  707. Obviously you have a sense
  708. that something is starting,
  709.  
  710. 147
  711. 00:12:07,848 --> 00:12:12,068
  712. but I don't think we had a sense of what
  713. that something was or where it would end up.
  714.  
  715. 148
  716. 00:12:13,598 --> 00:12:17,248
  717. Within a couple of weeks,
  718. we'd asked Guy if he would join.
  719.  
  720. 149
  721. 00:12:18,948 --> 00:12:20,858
  722. Me and Guy didn't like
  723. each other at first.
  724.  
  725. 150
  726. 00:12:21,038 --> 00:12:23,468
  727. He thought I was weird
  728. 'cause I had long curly hair.
  729.  
  730. 151
  731. 00:12:23,648 --> 00:12:26,388
  732. I thought he was arrogant, but he wasn't.
  733. He was just really quiet.
  734.  
  735. 152
  736. 00:12:26,558 --> 00:12:29,048
  737. But then we bonded over
  738. a keyboard, so we thought,
  739.  
  740. 153
  741. 00:12:29,218 --> 00:12:31,348
  742. "Ah, wicked. Well,
  743. maybe we don't hate each other."
  744.  
  745. 154
  746. 00:12:31,998 --> 00:12:34,308
  747. What does it mean to me, music?
  748.  
  749. 155
  750. 00:12:34,488 --> 00:12:39,318
  751. It's been my life since I was
  752. probably about five years old.
  753.  
  754. 156
  755. 00:12:39,878 --> 00:12:43,888
  756. I found a box of cassettes my sister
  757. had, and I'll never forget that.
  758.  
  759. 157
  760. 00:12:44,058 --> 00:12:48,888
  761. I became a bass player 'cause
  762. of my love of soul and funk.
  763.  
  764. 158
  765. 00:12:49,068 --> 00:12:50,954
  766. And that was it, you know.
  767. I'd get home from school
  768.  
  769. 159
  770. 00:12:50,978 --> 00:12:53,638
  771. and I would just play that
  772. instrument constantly for hours,
  773.  
  774. 160
  775. 00:12:53,808 --> 00:12:55,548
  776. just lock myself away
  777. and play it.
  778.  
  779. 161
  780. 00:12:56,938 --> 00:12:59,818
  781. He was the first person
  782. to put his whole life on hold
  783.  
  784. 162
  785. 00:12:59,988 --> 00:13:04,518
  786. based on one song that Jonny and I had
  787. played him on two crappy old guitars.
  788.  
  789. 163
  790. 00:13:05,518 --> 00:13:07,908
  791. It just blows my mind
  792. that he did that.
  793.  
  794. 164
  795. 00:13:09,088 --> 00:13:11,258
  796. It soon became apparent
  797. that we needed a drummer
  798.  
  799. 165
  800. 00:13:11,438 --> 00:13:13,918
  801. if we wanted to play a gig.
  802.  
  803. 166
  804. 00:13:14,388 --> 00:13:16,528
  805. Chris Martin, these are
  806. your wheels of fortune.
  807.  
  808. 167
  809. 00:13:16,698 --> 00:13:20,438
  810. What's up? I'm Cheese Hawk,
  811. I ride for Proco trucks
  812.  
  813. 168
  814. 00:13:20,618 --> 00:13:22,358
  815. and Deutschentractors.
  816.  
  817. 169
  818. 00:13:22,528 --> 00:13:24,878
  819. We went away for the summer
  820. and at the end of the summer,
  821.  
  822. 170
  823. 00:13:25,058 --> 00:13:27,778
  824. we started really writing some good
  825. songs and we wanted to do a demo.
  826.  
  827. 171
  828. 00:13:27,888 --> 00:13:30,448
  829. Today we can eat food
  830. that isn't come out of the bin.
  831.  
  832. 172
  833. 00:13:33,588 --> 00:13:36,564
  834. We were cool in everything except
  835. the drums. We didn't have a drummer.
  836.  
  837. 173
  838. 00:13:36,588 --> 00:13:40,678
  839. So, when we went to do our first photo
  840. shoot in Tesco's on Oxford Street,
  841.  
  842. 174
  843. 00:13:41,288 --> 00:13:43,208
  844. I did mine, Jonny did his,
  845. Guy did his.
  846.  
  847. 175
  848. 00:13:43,378 --> 00:13:45,898
  849. So it was just three of us and
  850. it was called the PanicEP.
  851.  
  852. 176
  853. 00:13:46,858 --> 00:13:49,038
  854. So, we went down to Will's house
  855.  
  856. 177
  857. 00:13:49,208 --> 00:13:51,969
  858. and Will was always our mate who
  859. played guitar much better than anyone
  860.  
  861. 178
  862. 00:13:51,998 --> 00:13:53,608
  863. and knew about 100 songs.
  864.  
  865. 179
  866. 00:13:53,778 --> 00:13:55,348
  867. He was a walking jukebox.
  868.  
  869. 180
  870. 00:13:55,518 --> 00:13:58,308
  871. I met Chris... We were
  872. on a bus somewhere together.
  873.  
  874. 181
  875. 00:13:58,478 --> 00:14:02,228
  876. We used to play guitars in the stairwells
  877. 'cause they had nice acoustics.
  878.  
  879. 182
  880. 00:14:02,398 --> 00:14:04,918
  881. I was at the bottom of the stairs
  882. and he was on the fifth floor.
  883.  
  884. 183
  885. 00:14:04,968 --> 00:14:07,398
  886. A five-story musical experience.
  887.  
  888. 184
  889. 00:14:08,318 --> 00:14:13,058
  890. It's a very fundamental and basic
  891. memory that I have about being a child.
  892.  
  893. 185
  894. 00:14:13,238 --> 00:14:17,018
  895. Music was all around.
  896. It's a legacy of my mum's.
  897.  
  898. 186
  899. 00:14:17,198 --> 00:14:19,718
  900. I knew that Chris and Jonny
  901. had recorded an EP
  902.  
  903. 187
  904. 00:14:19,898 --> 00:14:21,508
  905. and they wanted some drums
  906. on it.
  907.  
  908. 188
  909. 00:14:21,678 --> 00:14:24,248
  910. My flatmate played the drums
  911. and he had a drum kit.
  912.  
  913. 189
  914. 00:14:24,418 --> 00:14:28,078
  915. We set it all up and then, when it
  916. was ready to go, he wasn't around.
  917.  
  918. 190
  919. 00:14:28,248 --> 00:14:29,858
  920. I think he'd disappeared.
  921.  
  922. 191
  923. 00:14:30,038 --> 00:14:31,964
  924. I'm not sure how committed
  925. he was to being in a band.
  926.  
  927. 192
  928. 00:14:31,988 --> 00:14:33,688
  929. So, Will said, "I'll do it."
  930.  
  931. 193
  932. 00:14:34,038 --> 00:14:35,798
  933. I'm the only one here,
  934. I'm the only one left.
  935.  
  936. 194
  937. 00:14:35,868 --> 00:14:38,828
  938. "I'll give it a go" and then
  939. he went...
  940.  
  941. 195
  942. 00:14:42,788 --> 00:14:46,178
  943. I had the same feeling that I had with Guy
  944. and Jonny. "Oh, that's him. There he is."
  945.  
  946. 196
  947. 00:14:46,358 --> 00:14:47,894
  948. We didn't actually know
  949. you were a drummer.
  950.  
  951. 197
  952. 00:14:47,918 --> 00:14:49,618
  953. No, I wasn't.
  954.  
  955. 198
  956. 00:14:49,788 --> 00:14:52,348
  957. That's the key, I'm still trying
  958. to convince the world that I am.
  959.  
  960. 199
  961. 00:14:54,838 --> 00:14:56,368
  962. And Coldplay was born.
  963.  
  964. 200
  965. 00:14:56,538 --> 00:14:59,368
  966. It's like when bacon and eggs
  967.  
  968. 201
  969. 00:14:59,538 --> 00:15:01,458
  970. and mushrooms and chips
  971.  
  972. 202
  973. 00:15:01,628 --> 00:15:03,328
  974. are put on the same plate
  975.  
  976. 203
  977. 00:15:03,498 --> 00:15:06,638
  978. and become something greater
  979. than those individual parts.
  980.  
  981. 204
  982. 00:15:06,808 --> 00:15:09,728
  983. It becomes
  984. a cohesive whole that's tasty.
  985.  
  986. 205
  987. 00:15:10,418 --> 00:15:11,988
  988. Our sound is tasty.
  989.  
  990. 206
  991. 00:15:12,558 --> 00:15:16,208
  992. Chris is the unstoppable
  993. creative force of the band
  994.  
  995. 207
  996. 00:15:16,388 --> 00:15:18,738
  997. that we try our best
  998. to keep up with.
  999.  
  1000. 208
  1001. 00:15:19,428 --> 00:15:22,388
  1002. He's our best friend
  1003. and a musical genius
  1004.  
  1005. 209
  1006. 00:15:22,568 --> 00:15:25,048
  1007. and he never stops
  1008. surprising you.
  1009.  
  1010. 210
  1011. 00:15:26,048 --> 00:15:28,008
  1012. Music means everything to me.
  1013.  
  1014. 211
  1015. 00:15:28,178 --> 00:15:29,968
  1016. I think when I was about 16,
  1017.  
  1018. 212
  1019. 00:15:30,138 --> 00:15:33,058
  1020. I was performing and doing music
  1021. at boarding school.
  1022.  
  1023. 213
  1024. 00:15:33,228 --> 00:15:36,578
  1025. And I remember saying to people,
  1026. "I'm gonna do this forever."
  1027.  
  1028. 214
  1029. 00:15:36,748 --> 00:15:40,448
  1030. They were like, "Sure. And why don't you
  1031. reanimate dinosaurs while you're at it?"
  1032.  
  1033. 215
  1034. 00:15:40,628 --> 00:15:42,278
  1035. You know, it was
  1036. that ridiculous.
  1037.  
  1038. 216
  1039. 00:15:43,198 --> 00:15:44,978
  1040. But I've been really blessed
  1041. in my life
  1042.  
  1043. 217
  1044. 00:15:45,148 --> 00:15:48,978
  1045. with an ability to not give up,
  1046. and it came from my dad.
  1047.  
  1048. 218
  1049. 00:15:49,158 --> 00:15:50,694
  1050. He's the first person
  1051. that said it to me,
  1052.  
  1053. 219
  1054. 00:15:50,718 --> 00:15:52,198
  1055. and would often say it to me,
  1056.  
  1057. 220
  1058. 00:15:52,378 --> 00:15:54,028
  1059. and I now say it to my son.
  1060.  
  1061. 221
  1062. 00:15:54,768 --> 00:15:57,428
  1063. My dad is a circus
  1064. ringmaster really,
  1065.  
  1066. 222
  1067. 00:15:57,598 --> 00:15:59,468
  1068. but he was told
  1069. to be an accountant.
  1070.  
  1071. 223
  1072. 00:15:59,818 --> 00:16:02,388
  1073. And in my mum, I could feel
  1074. a certain frustration
  1075.  
  1076. 224
  1077. 00:16:02,558 --> 00:16:05,388
  1078. that she wasn't able to do what
  1079. she really loved, which is music.
  1080.  
  1081. 225
  1082. 00:16:05,998 --> 00:16:08,958
  1083. So, with both of them,
  1084. there was a subconscious thing
  1085.  
  1086. 226
  1087. 00:16:09,128 --> 00:16:13,228
  1088. that if you really feel that you're
  1089. supposed to do something, go for it.
  1090.  
  1091. 227
  1092. 00:16:13,398 --> 00:16:16,098
  1093. And it gave me
  1094. this great sense of possibility
  1095.  
  1096. 228
  1097. 00:16:16,658 --> 00:16:19,448
  1098. and then that philosophy
  1099. became A Head Full Of Dreams.
  1100.  
  1101. 229
  1102. 00:16:21,188 --> 00:16:25,408
  1103. He has a relentless and infectious
  1104. energy for music and for life
  1105.  
  1106. 230
  1107. 00:16:25,588 --> 00:16:27,938
  1108. and it's incredible
  1109. to have shared a journey
  1110.  
  1111. 231
  1112. 00:16:28,108 --> 00:16:29,848
  1113. because we're
  1114. very different people.
  1115.  
  1116. 232
  1117. 00:16:30,548 --> 00:16:33,248
  1118. Chris always has a very clear
  1119. idea about where he wants to be,
  1120.  
  1121. 233
  1122. 00:16:33,638 --> 00:16:35,198
  1123. what he wants to be doing next.
  1124.  
  1125. 234
  1126. 00:16:36,248 --> 00:16:41,338
  1127. We, Jon Buckland, Chris Martin,
  1128. Will Champion and Guy Berryman,
  1129.  
  1130. 235
  1131. 00:16:41,508 --> 00:16:44,388
  1132. aka The Coldplay, are gonna
  1133. go on to be such a huge band,
  1134.  
  1135. 236
  1136. 00:16:44,558 --> 00:16:48,868
  1137. and this will be on national television
  1138. within four years, four years.
  1139.  
  1140. 237
  1141. 00:16:49,038 --> 00:16:51,828
  1142. This is now 26th June, 1998.
  1143.  
  1144. 238
  1145. 00:16:51,998 --> 00:16:54,568
  1146. By the 26th of June, 2002,
  1147.  
  1148. 239
  1149. 00:16:54,748 --> 00:16:57,528
  1150. The Coldplay or the band,
  1151. whatever they're called then,
  1152.  
  1153. 240
  1154. 00:16:57,698 --> 00:16:59,878
  1155. will be known
  1156. just all over, man.
  1157.  
  1158. 241
  1159. 00:17:00,058 --> 00:17:03,278
  1160. We're gonna be so big.
  1161.  
  1162. 242
  1163. 00:17:03,448 --> 00:17:06,758
  1164. So Guy, Will, Jon, and Chris,
  1165. Don't you forget, all right?
  1166.  
  1167. 243
  1168. 00:17:07,448 --> 00:17:09,798
  1169. Massive. Absolutely huge.
  1170.  
  1171. 244
  1172. 00:17:56,018 --> 00:17:57,498
  1173. Every record is
  1174. your first and last.
  1175.  
  1176. 245
  1177. 00:17:57,678 --> 00:17:59,318
  1178. That's the way
  1179. you should really treat it.
  1180.  
  1181. 246
  1182. 00:17:59,418 --> 00:18:01,418
  1183. We're not under the impression
  1184. that we have a right
  1185.  
  1186. 247
  1187. 00:18:01,588 --> 00:18:03,808
  1188. to just amble
  1189. into these massive arenas
  1190.  
  1191. 248
  1192. 00:18:03,988 --> 00:18:06,664
  1193. and play to the same kind of numbers
  1194. that we played to on the last tour.
  1195.  
  1196. 249
  1197. 00:18:06,688 --> 00:18:08,728
  1198. We're starting again
  1199. at rock bottom.
  1200.  
  1201. 250
  1202. 00:18:08,908 --> 00:18:11,234
  1203. - Well, not quite rock bottom...
  1204. - Sort of drop bottom soft.
  1205.  
  1206. 251
  1207. 00:18:11,258 --> 00:18:13,388
  1208. - Yeah.
  1209. - But that's good, I think.
  1210.  
  1211. 252
  1212. 00:18:13,558 --> 00:18:16,319
  1213. As ridiculous as it sounds, I still
  1214. feel like we're trying to make it.
  1215.  
  1216. 253
  1217. 00:18:16,998 --> 00:18:18,934
  1218. Hey, our friend Chris
  1219. Martin is in studio with us now.
  1220.  
  1221. 254
  1222. 00:18:18,958 --> 00:18:20,958
  1223. And he's from a little band
  1224. called Coldplay.
  1225.  
  1226. 255
  1227. 00:18:21,138 --> 00:18:22,894
  1228. Their new record is called
  1229. A Head Full Of Dreams.
  1230.  
  1231. 256
  1232. 00:18:22,918 --> 00:18:25,968
  1233. Aren't you so delighted, though,
  1234. when you crawl out of the cave
  1235.  
  1236. 257
  1237. 00:18:26,138 --> 00:18:28,798
  1238. where you boys make your magic
  1239. that the world still cares?
  1240.  
  1241. 258
  1242. 00:18:28,968 --> 00:18:32,708
  1243. Definitely. And right now we're
  1244. going on tour for another 18 months or so.
  1245.  
  1246. 259
  1247. 00:18:32,888 --> 00:18:34,368
  1248. That's when
  1249. the real payoff happens.
  1250.  
  1251. 260
  1252. 00:18:36,798 --> 00:18:38,628
  1253. You can't take anything
  1254. for granted.
  1255.  
  1256. 261
  1257. 00:18:38,808 --> 00:18:40,368
  1258. As fast as the ascent has been,
  1259.  
  1260. 262
  1261. 00:18:40,548 --> 00:18:43,068
  1262. the descent can be
  1263. four or five times as fast.
  1264.  
  1265. 263
  1266. 00:18:43,638 --> 00:18:45,118
  1267. Having done like
  1268. a week of rehearsing,
  1269.  
  1270. 264
  1271. 00:18:45,288 --> 00:18:46,938
  1272. we did like a practice gig.
  1273.  
  1274. 265
  1275. 00:18:47,118 --> 00:18:48,524
  1276. It was basically like
  1277. us saying good-bye.
  1278.  
  1279. 266
  1280. 00:18:48,548 --> 00:18:50,168
  1281. We're going away
  1282. for a year and a half.
  1283.  
  1284. 267
  1285. 00:18:50,338 --> 00:18:52,224
  1286. At the end of it,
  1287. I got this overwhelming feeling
  1288.  
  1289. 268
  1290. 00:18:52,248 --> 00:18:53,728
  1291. that everyone was being
  1292. nice about it,
  1293.  
  1294. 269
  1295. 00:18:53,818 --> 00:18:55,908
  1296. but actually
  1297. we sounded absolutely terrible.
  1298.  
  1299. 270
  1300. 00:18:56,078 --> 00:18:58,638
  1301. We definitely felt like we had to
  1302. kind of earn our stripes again.
  1303.  
  1304. 271
  1305. 00:18:59,348 --> 00:19:01,648
  1306. Hey, how are you doing?
  1307.  
  1308. 272
  1309. 00:19:01,828 --> 00:19:04,478
  1310. The brand-new album is
  1311. so different from the last album.
  1312.  
  1313. 273
  1314. 00:19:04,658 --> 00:19:07,268
  1315. So much energy,
  1316. so much color, so much light.
  1317.  
  1318. 274
  1319. 00:19:07,438 --> 00:19:10,618
  1320. Absolutely. We wanted to just
  1321. make the album we always dreamed of.
  1322.  
  1323. 275
  1324. 00:19:10,788 --> 00:19:14,164
  1325. But now we're a little nervy, of course,
  1326. 'cause we don't know what anyone will think.
  1327.  
  1328. 276
  1329. 00:19:14,188 --> 00:19:16,308
  1330. But it's just like a dream
  1331. come true, the whole thing.
  1332.  
  1333. 277
  1334. 00:19:16,448 --> 00:19:17,928
  1335. This might just work.
  1336.  
  1337. 278
  1338. 00:19:22,588 --> 00:19:24,588
  1339. It was just time for us
  1340. to make an album
  1341.  
  1342. 279
  1343. 00:19:24,758 --> 00:19:27,548
  1344. about hope and love
  1345. and togetherness,
  1346.  
  1347. 280
  1348. 00:19:27,718 --> 00:19:29,558
  1349. you know, embracing all
  1350. the sounds that we love
  1351.  
  1352. 281
  1353. 00:19:29,728 --> 00:19:31,378
  1354. and all the styles that we like.
  1355.  
  1356. 282
  1357. 00:19:32,208 --> 00:19:35,128
  1358. I think some people will just say, "Oh,
  1359. fuck off. This is hippy nonsense."
  1360.  
  1361. 283
  1362. 00:19:35,208 --> 00:19:36,598
  1363. But that's okay.
  1364.  
  1365. 284
  1366. 00:19:36,778 --> 00:19:38,274
  1367. This is the first tour where
  1368. we feel like,
  1369.  
  1370. 285
  1371. 00:19:38,298 --> 00:19:39,948
  1372. yeah, that's how we want
  1373. it to be.
  1374.  
  1375. 286
  1376. 00:19:40,738 --> 00:19:42,658
  1377. I think every other tour
  1378. up to this one has been,
  1379.  
  1380. 287
  1381. 00:19:42,828 --> 00:19:45,658
  1382. "One day we'll have this kind
  1383. of song and production."
  1384.  
  1385. 288
  1386. 00:19:45,828 --> 00:19:47,668
  1387. This Head Full of Dreams
  1388. tour is the first time
  1389.  
  1390. 289
  1391. 00:19:47,788 --> 00:19:49,748
  1392. we've got what we were
  1393. always hoping for.
  1394.  
  1395. 290
  1396. 00:20:38,228 --> 00:20:41,798
  1397. There's four of you in
  1398. the band. Who's in charge? Who's the boss?
  1399.  
  1400. 291
  1401. 00:20:41,968 --> 00:20:44,238
  1402. We have a fifth member
  1403. called Phil.
  1404.  
  1405. 292
  1406. 00:20:44,408 --> 00:20:47,148
  1407. Nobody sees him
  1408. because he's too good-looking,
  1409.  
  1410. 293
  1411. 00:20:47,328 --> 00:20:49,888
  1412. and he pulls all the strings.
  1413.  
  1414. 294
  1415. 00:20:50,068 --> 00:20:52,328
  1416. - Does he actually exist?
  1417. - Phil is real.
  1418.  
  1419. 295
  1420. 00:20:52,498 --> 00:20:54,458
  1421. I would like
  1422. to rephrase that. Phil is real.
  1423.  
  1424. 296
  1425. 00:20:54,638 --> 00:20:57,378
  1426. He's... Can you not see him?
  1427.  
  1428. 297
  1429. 00:20:57,548 --> 00:20:59,338
  1430. He's sitting right there.
  1431.  
  1432. 298
  1433. 00:20:59,508 --> 00:21:01,378
  1434. He's next to Guy.
  1435. He doesn't speak much.
  1436.  
  1437. 299
  1438. 00:21:01,558 --> 00:21:03,338
  1439. No, he doesn't show up on TV.
  1440.  
  1441. 300
  1442. 00:21:04,338 --> 00:21:06,688
  1443. So, Phil Harvey was our
  1444. first manager.
  1445.  
  1446. 301
  1447. 00:21:06,868 --> 00:21:09,478
  1448. He paid for us to record
  1449. our first EP.
  1450.  
  1451. 302
  1452. 00:21:10,128 --> 00:21:12,518
  1453. He's a sort of outsider
  1454. on the inside.
  1455.  
  1456. 303
  1457. 00:21:12,698 --> 00:21:16,918
  1458. He's able to view with a much better
  1459. perspective than sometimes we can.
  1460.  
  1461. 304
  1462. 00:21:17,088 --> 00:21:19,048
  1463. The difference between
  1464. having four and five people
  1465.  
  1466. 305
  1467. 00:21:19,098 --> 00:21:22,878
  1468. in a democracy is actually
  1469. crucial, because someone will win.
  1470.  
  1471. 306
  1472. 00:21:23,058 --> 00:21:24,878
  1473. You don't get a stalemate.
  1474.  
  1475. 307
  1476. 00:21:25,278 --> 00:21:28,888
  1477. It's probably even healthier than a
  1478. democracy because no one can be voted out.
  1479.  
  1480. 308
  1481. 00:21:29,058 --> 00:21:30,538
  1482. There's no elections.
  1483.  
  1484. 309
  1485. 00:21:30,718 --> 00:21:33,588
  1486. It's like a democratic
  1487. five-way dictatorship.
  1488.  
  1489. 310
  1490. 00:21:34,978 --> 00:21:36,898
  1491. So, how much for... 400 each.
  1492.  
  1493. 311
  1494. 00:21:37,068 --> 00:21:38,808
  1495. 400 each? Yes, sir.
  1496.  
  1497. 312
  1498. 00:21:38,988 --> 00:21:42,118
  1499. What? You make it done sir,
  1500. three pieces for...
  1501.  
  1502. 313
  1503. 00:21:42,288 --> 00:21:44,338
  1504. 1,000 four. Let's call it 600.
  1505.  
  1506. 314
  1507. 00:21:45,078 --> 00:21:46,988
  1508. Take. 1,000.That's terrible negotiating.
  1509.  
  1510. 315
  1511. 00:21:49,388 --> 00:21:52,388
  1512. The important thing when you're in a new
  1513. city is not to look like a tourist.
  1514.  
  1515. 316
  1516. 00:21:52,518 --> 00:21:53,598
  1517. Right, Phil? Just blend in.
  1518.  
  1519. 317
  1520. 00:21:53,698 --> 00:21:54,898
  1521. Just make sure you're prepared
  1522.  
  1523. 318
  1524. 00:21:54,958 --> 00:21:56,088
  1525. for any eventuality.
  1526.  
  1527. 319
  1528. 00:21:56,258 --> 00:21:58,568
  1529. Yeah, be safe
  1530. and be discreet and...
  1531.  
  1532. 320
  1533. 00:21:58,738 --> 00:22:01,008
  1534. I think we'll be okay. All right?
  1535.  
  1536. 321
  1537. 00:22:01,178 --> 00:22:04,708
  1538. So, me and Chris, we got sent to the
  1539. same boarding school when we were 13.
  1540.  
  1541. 322
  1542. 00:22:05,228 --> 00:22:08,618
  1543. That was how we met, and, uh, he's
  1544. been my best friend ever since.
  1545.  
  1546. 323
  1547. 00:22:09,628 --> 00:22:11,838
  1548. I think, subconsciously,
  1549. I spent a long time,
  1550.  
  1551. 324
  1552. 00:22:12,018 --> 00:22:13,888
  1553. almost in denial
  1554. of my upbringing.
  1555.  
  1556. 325
  1557. 00:22:14,538 --> 00:22:16,238
  1558. I was raised very religious,
  1559.  
  1560. 326
  1561. 00:22:16,718 --> 00:22:18,848
  1562. so there's a sort of
  1563. constant self-doubt.
  1564.  
  1565. 327
  1566. 00:22:19,938 --> 00:22:22,638
  1567. I came from a very
  1568. small school in Devon
  1569.  
  1570. 328
  1571. 00:22:22,808 --> 00:22:25,678
  1572. and then went to this
  1573. much bigger school in Dorset.
  1574.  
  1575. 329
  1576. 00:22:25,858 --> 00:22:29,078
  1577. There, I realized,
  1578. "Oh, this is gonna be tough."
  1579.  
  1580. 330
  1581. 00:22:29,248 --> 00:22:30,754
  1582. In retrospect,
  1583. it was great preparation
  1584.  
  1585. 331
  1586. 00:22:30,778 --> 00:22:34,428
  1587. for being in Coldplay,
  1588. the abuse.
  1589.  
  1590. 332
  1591. 00:22:34,608 --> 00:22:37,518
  1592. I think people
  1593. were pretty fucking mean to him.
  1594.  
  1595. 333
  1596. 00:22:37,698 --> 00:22:41,438
  1597. I think there was also a
  1598. certain vulnerability about him.
  1599.  
  1600. 334
  1601. 00:22:41,608 --> 00:22:45,358
  1602. There was a few guys in my year who
  1603. seemed to have it a bit more together
  1604.  
  1605. 335
  1606. 00:22:45,528 --> 00:22:47,398
  1607. and were twice as big
  1608. as everybody else,
  1609.  
  1610. 336
  1611. 00:22:47,578 --> 00:22:50,578
  1612. and one of them was this guy
  1613. Phil with the most perfect hair.
  1614.  
  1615. 337
  1616. 00:22:50,748 --> 00:22:52,928
  1617. And he basically took pity
  1618. on me, I think.
  1619.  
  1620. 338
  1621. 00:22:53,708 --> 00:22:57,628
  1622. We were in a couple of bands together
  1623. at school, but I never lasted long.
  1624.  
  1625. 339
  1626. 00:22:57,798 --> 00:23:01,288
  1627. I wanted it so badly,
  1628. but I just had zero talent.
  1629.  
  1630. 340
  1631. 00:23:01,458 --> 00:23:03,718
  1632. Our blues band
  1633. was called the Rocking Honkies,
  1634.  
  1635. 341
  1636. 00:23:03,898 --> 00:23:05,638
  1637. and it was as bad as it sounds.
  1638.  
  1639. 342
  1640. 00:23:05,808 --> 00:23:08,068
  1641. We're gonna go backstage
  1642. with the Honkies.
  1643.  
  1644. 343
  1645. 00:23:08,248 --> 00:23:09,548
  1646. Add your comments on it.
  1647.  
  1648. 344
  1649. 00:23:09,728 --> 00:23:12,298
  1650. Well, Tim, we're the
  1651. rocking, tonking,
  1652.  
  1653. 345
  1654. 00:23:12,468 --> 00:23:16,078
  1655. rocking, tonking,
  1656. rocking, fucking honkies.
  1657.  
  1658. 346
  1659. 00:23:20,778 --> 00:23:23,568
  1660. Chris Martin on the piano!
  1661.  
  1662. 347
  1663. 00:23:23,738 --> 00:23:28,358
  1664. We know each other so well now that
  1665. we know what buttons not to push.
  1666.  
  1667. 348
  1668. 00:23:28,528 --> 00:23:32,188
  1669. Honestly, I feel better friends with
  1670. the four of them now than I ever have.
  1671.  
  1672. 349
  1673. 00:23:32,358 --> 00:23:34,488
  1674. Chris kind of explained it
  1675. to me the other day,
  1676.  
  1677. 350
  1678. 00:23:34,668 --> 00:23:37,468
  1679. 'cause we had a band meeting, and he
  1680. said, "It's really nice nowadays",
  1681.  
  1682. 351
  1683. 00:23:37,628 --> 00:23:40,954
  1684. I know when I don't have to say anything
  1685. 'cause I know when Will's gonna say something,
  1686.  
  1687. 352
  1688. 00:23:40,978 --> 00:23:42,538
  1689. "I know when Guy's gonna
  1690. say something."
  1691.  
  1692. 353
  1693. 00:23:42,628 --> 00:23:45,288
  1694. So, major disagreements
  1695. are rare.
  1696.  
  1697. 354
  1698. 00:23:46,028 --> 00:23:49,678
  1699. We've had our moments as a
  1700. band, but we came through them.
  1701.  
  1702. 355
  1703. 00:23:49,858 --> 00:23:53,768
  1704. A four-way marriage is a
  1705. tricky proposition.
  1706.  
  1707. 356
  1708. 00:23:53,948 --> 00:23:57,468
  1709. It's difficult because we work so hard on
  1710. keeping each other happy, the four of us.
  1711.  
  1712. 357
  1713. 00:23:57,648 --> 00:24:00,258
  1714. But sometimes
  1715. things do need to be said,
  1716.  
  1717. 358
  1718. 00:24:00,428 --> 00:24:03,568
  1719. and I've learnt over the years
  1720. that that has to be me,
  1721.  
  1722. 359
  1723. 00:24:03,738 --> 00:24:07,528
  1724. the sort of unofficial
  1725. "spanner in the works thrower."
  1726.  
  1727. 360
  1728. 00:24:12,488 --> 00:24:14,968
  1729. What songs are going
  1730. on A Head Full Of Dreams?
  1731.  
  1732. 361
  1733. 00:24:15,138 --> 00:24:16,668
  1734. I think we all agree that...
  1735.  
  1736. 362
  1737. 00:24:17,748 --> 00:24:19,228
  1738. we might not all be
  1739. in agreement.
  1740.  
  1741. 363
  1742. 00:24:21,018 --> 00:24:23,978
  1743. But I think there are
  1744. eight songs
  1745.  
  1746. 364
  1747. 00:24:24,148 --> 00:24:27,458
  1748. which I would like to think that we
  1749. won't have any disagreement about.
  1750.  
  1751. 365
  1752. 00:24:27,628 --> 00:24:30,548
  1753. - Yes.
  1754. - This might be too much for me.
  1755.  
  1756. 366
  1757. 00:24:30,718 --> 00:24:32,508
  1758. Okay.
  1759.  
  1760. 367
  1761. 00:24:32,678 --> 00:24:36,598
  1762. I'm worried that we might be about
  1763. to really piss each other off.
  1764.  
  1765. 368
  1766. 00:24:36,768 --> 00:24:39,038
  1767. We've gotta be honest.
  1768. This week we can't...
  1769.  
  1770. 369
  1771. 00:24:39,208 --> 00:24:43,128
  1772. - We have to have this.
  1773. - All right. What are they?
  1774.  
  1775. 370
  1776. 00:24:43,298 --> 00:24:45,998
  1777. My feeling is
  1778. "Hymn for the Weekend."
  1779.  
  1780. 371
  1781. 00:24:46,168 --> 00:24:48,218
  1782. - All agreed? Agreed?
  1783. - Agreed.
  1784.  
  1785. 372
  1786. 00:24:48,388 --> 00:24:49,804
  1787. - Carried, carried.
  1788. - Yeah.
  1789.  
  1790. 373
  1791. 00:24:49,828 --> 00:24:51,308
  1792. "Everglow"?
  1793.  
  1794. 374
  1795. 00:24:51,478 --> 00:24:53,698
  1796. Agreed.
  1797.  
  1798. 375
  1799. 00:24:53,878 --> 00:24:55,268
  1800. "Amazing Day."
  1801.  
  1802. 376
  1803. 00:25:00,968 --> 00:25:04,228
  1804. But I don't wanna be a dick. My
  1805. part is to keep the band together.
  1806.  
  1807. 377
  1808. 00:25:04,408 --> 00:25:06,498
  1809. Of course, but...
  1810. I'll do whatever you say.
  1811.  
  1812. 378
  1813. 00:25:06,668 --> 00:25:08,864
  1814. I'm not gonna walk out
  1815. of the band just because...
  1816.  
  1817. 379
  1818. 00:25:08,888 --> 00:25:10,978
  1819. So, that is on the definites.
  1820.  
  1821. 380
  1822. 00:25:11,148 --> 00:25:12,524
  1823. "Up and Up." That's on my definites.
  1824.  
  1825. 381
  1826. 00:25:12,548 --> 00:25:14,678
  1827. I would like it
  1828. on there.
  1829.  
  1830. 382
  1831. 00:25:14,848 --> 00:25:19,028
  1832. It has to be, really, because that's
  1833. an example of a crucial story bit.
  1834.  
  1835. 383
  1836. 00:25:19,208 --> 00:25:21,558
  1837. Well, we've definitely
  1838. made an EP.
  1839.  
  1840. 384
  1841. 00:25:22,558 --> 00:25:25,728
  1842. None of us are
  1843. particularly confrontational,
  1844.  
  1845. 385
  1846. 00:25:25,908 --> 00:25:28,348
  1847. but sometimes
  1848. it can absolutely be fraught
  1849.  
  1850. 386
  1851. 00:25:28,518 --> 00:25:29,958
  1852. and there are
  1853. definitely arguments.
  1854.  
  1855. 387
  1856. 00:25:30,128 --> 00:25:31,608
  1857. Everybody has a say, you know,
  1858.  
  1859. 388
  1860. 00:25:31,778 --> 00:25:34,738
  1861. that's the foundation
  1862. of our band really, is equality.
  1863.  
  1864. 389
  1865. 00:25:34,918 --> 00:25:37,918
  1866. We decided that
  1867. down in Camden from the outset.
  1868.  
  1869. 390
  1870. 00:25:38,568 --> 00:25:40,308
  1871. This is our area.
  1872. This is our area.
  1873.  
  1874. 391
  1875. 00:25:41,358 --> 00:25:42,618
  1876. I'll show ya.
  1877.  
  1878. 392
  1879. 00:25:42,788 --> 00:25:44,448
  1880. Just over there,
  1881. that road up there.
  1882.  
  1883. 393
  1884. 00:25:44,618 --> 00:25:47,668
  1885. Just up here is where it
  1886. all happened. It's our Cavern.
  1887.  
  1888. 394
  1889. 00:25:47,838 --> 00:25:49,238
  1890. This is where it began.
  1891.  
  1892. 395
  1893. 00:25:49,408 --> 00:25:50,994
  1894. - Camden?
  1895. - Yeah, at Camden.
  1896.  
  1897. 396
  1898. 00:25:51,018 --> 00:25:53,538
  1899. Beginning of
  1900. rock legend.
  1901.  
  1902. 397
  1903. 00:25:53,718 --> 00:25:55,588
  1904. - This was it.
  1905. - Wow.
  1906.  
  1907. 398
  1908. 00:25:55,758 --> 00:25:56,848
  1909. So...
  1910.  
  1911. 399
  1912. 00:25:57,028 --> 00:25:58,588
  1913. - 268.
  1914. - Yeah.
  1915.  
  1916. 400
  1917. 00:25:58,768 --> 00:26:00,848
  1918. - Been repainted.
  1919. - Looks a lot nicer.
  1920.  
  1921. 401
  1922. 00:26:01,858 --> 00:26:06,038
  1923. This is where we first started rehearsing
  1924. when Will first joined the band.
  1925.  
  1926. 402
  1927. 00:26:06,208 --> 00:26:09,168
  1928. My old flat
  1929. where Chris and I used to live.
  1930.  
  1931. 403
  1932. 00:26:09,338 --> 00:26:12,168
  1933. We are in Camden Road,
  1934. we're The Coldplay.
  1935.  
  1936. 404
  1937. 00:26:12,348 --> 00:26:13,868
  1938. Come on through,
  1939. I'll show you.
  1940.  
  1941. 405
  1942. 00:26:14,038 --> 00:26:16,358
  1943. - There goes Guy.
  1944. - To the left down there.
  1945.  
  1946. 406
  1947. 00:26:17,608 --> 00:26:20,008
  1948. - Who lived in there?
  1949. - This was Chris's room.
  1950.  
  1951. 407
  1952. 00:26:20,748 --> 00:26:22,428
  1953. - We played in here.
  1954. - Yeah.
  1955.  
  1956. 408
  1957. 00:26:22,748 --> 00:26:24,878
  1958. Basically we go through
  1959. a simple stretch routine
  1960.  
  1961. 409
  1962. 00:26:25,048 --> 00:26:26,578
  1963. while singing
  1964. some songs as well.
  1965.  
  1966. 410
  1967. 00:26:26,748 --> 00:26:28,514
  1968. I don't know if you can see
  1969. that where you are.
  1970.  
  1971. 411
  1972. 00:26:28,538 --> 00:26:31,628
  1973. This was Jonny's bedroom
  1974. and our band rehearsal room.
  1975.  
  1976. 412
  1977. 00:26:31,798 --> 00:26:35,668
  1978. Uh, Chris and I normally stand together.
  1979. We raise the right arm.
  1980.  
  1981. 413
  1982. 00:26:35,848 --> 00:26:38,458
  1983. Right one. Just bring it round
  1984. to the side.
  1985.  
  1986. 414
  1987. 00:26:40,768 --> 00:26:42,638
  1988. Did you just get
  1989. your arse out, Jonny?
  1990.  
  1991. 415
  1992. 00:26:42,808 --> 00:26:45,174
  1993. - It's pretty small, isn't it?
  1994. - It really is.
  1995.  
  1996. 416
  1997. 00:26:45,198 --> 00:26:47,288
  1998. For a full band and a bed.
  1999.  
  2000. 417
  2001. 00:26:47,468 --> 00:26:50,338
  2002. It's funny to think that
  2003. it all stemmed from this bedroom.
  2004.  
  2005. 418
  2006. 00:26:51,338 --> 00:26:54,258
  2007. A few days after the
  2008. Panic EP, we had our first rehearsal
  2009.  
  2010. 419
  2011. 00:26:54,428 --> 00:26:56,958
  2012. and on that evening,
  2013. I phoned up this promoter
  2014.  
  2015. 420
  2016. 00:26:57,128 --> 00:26:59,648
  2017. at the Laurel Tree in Camden
  2018. and said, "Can we have a gig?"
  2019.  
  2020. 421
  2021. 00:26:59,828 --> 00:27:01,788
  2022. Thinking it might be
  2023. in six, eight weeks' time.
  2024.  
  2025. 422
  2026. 00:27:01,958 --> 00:27:03,958
  2027. He said, "Yeah, next Sunday."
  2028.  
  2029. 423
  2030. 00:27:04,138 --> 00:27:07,268
  2031. "What's your name?"
  2032. "We haven't got one yet."
  2033.  
  2034. 424
  2035. 00:27:07,438 --> 00:27:10,199
  2036. That was it. We had to think of a
  2037. name 'cause we were printing flyers.
  2038.  
  2039. 425
  2040. 00:27:10,228 --> 00:27:12,798
  2041. So, we came up
  2042. with a really terrible name.
  2043.  
  2044. 426
  2045. 00:27:14,408 --> 00:27:16,084
  2046. There's an old piece of paper
  2047. that Chris has.
  2048.  
  2049. 427
  2050. 00:27:16,108 --> 00:27:18,108
  2051. It's like a list of things
  2052. for the band.
  2053.  
  2054. 428
  2055. 00:27:18,278 --> 00:27:19,978
  2056. One is to get a drummer.
  2057.  
  2058. 429
  2059. 00:27:20,148 --> 00:27:23,418
  2060. Gig one, gig two, gig three,
  2061. gig four, get signed.
  2062.  
  2063. 430
  2064. 00:27:24,328 --> 00:27:27,638
  2065. It wasn't until Phil came along
  2066. that things started to change.
  2067.  
  2068. 431
  2069. 00:27:28,328 --> 00:27:30,898
  2070. I was always going down
  2071. to visit Chris down in London
  2072.  
  2073. 432
  2074. 00:27:31,078 --> 00:27:33,558
  2075. and I would share a bed
  2076. with Jonny.
  2077.  
  2078. 433
  2079. 00:27:33,728 --> 00:27:37,208
  2080. Obviously I came down for the first
  2081. show when they were Star Fish.
  2082.  
  2083. 434
  2084. 00:27:39,818 --> 00:27:42,088
  2085. It was in a total dive
  2086. in Camden.
  2087.  
  2088. 435
  2089. 00:27:50,658 --> 00:27:53,968
  2090. Our first gig in
  2091. the Laurel Tree was, I think,
  2092.  
  2093. 436
  2094. 00:27:54,138 --> 00:27:57,758
  2095. probably the most terrifying
  2096. experience I've ever had in my life.
  2097.  
  2098. 437
  2099. 00:27:58,838 --> 00:28:01,148
  2100. I felt so sick before it.
  2101.  
  2102. 438
  2103. 00:28:02,668 --> 00:28:04,888
  2104. I've never been so nervous,
  2105. I don't think.
  2106.  
  2107. 439
  2108. 00:28:05,068 --> 00:28:07,458
  2109. We expected about 20 people.
  2110.  
  2111. 440
  2112. 00:28:07,638 --> 00:28:11,158
  2113. It was sold out and we thought,
  2114. "Wow, this is a bit weird."
  2115.  
  2116. 441
  2117. 00:28:12,118 --> 00:28:15,428
  2118. That's the great thing about college,
  2119. you know. It made us look popular.
  2120.  
  2121. 442
  2122. 00:28:15,598 --> 00:28:17,988
  2123. Whereas, in fact,
  2124. they were just there to pull.
  2125.  
  2126. 443
  2127. 00:28:18,168 --> 00:28:19,568
  2128. It's really small,
  2129. isn't it?
  2130.  
  2131. 444
  2132. 00:28:19,728 --> 00:28:21,428
  2133. My pedal board
  2134. wouldn't fit on this stage.
  2135.  
  2136. 445
  2137. 00:28:22,258 --> 00:28:25,218
  2138. It's fantastic, though.
  2139. - It doesn't feel like 20 years ago.
  2140.  
  2141. 446
  2142. 00:28:26,388 --> 00:28:28,268
  2143. We did a couple of gigs
  2144. here, didn't we?
  2145.  
  2146. 447
  2147. 00:28:28,348 --> 00:28:31,218
  2148. I think this was just
  2149. one without a drum kit.
  2150.  
  2151. 448
  2152. 00:28:31,618 --> 00:28:33,528
  2153. Yeah. The band that was
  2154. supporting us had a kit,
  2155.  
  2156. 449
  2157. 00:28:33,698 --> 00:28:36,114
  2158. and so we asked them if we could
  2159. use theirs and they said yes,
  2160.  
  2161. 450
  2162. 00:28:36,138 --> 00:28:38,138
  2163. but then the promoter cut
  2164. their set short.
  2165.  
  2166. 451
  2167. 00:28:38,318 --> 00:28:41,448
  2168. Yeah. They got quite cross
  2169. and they took their kit home.
  2170.  
  2171. 452
  2172. 00:28:41,628 --> 00:28:43,708
  2173. I was pleading with them,
  2174. "Please, don't take it.
  2175.  
  2176. 453
  2177. 00:28:43,888 --> 00:28:45,928
  2178. This is only
  2179. our second-ever show."
  2180.  
  2181. 454
  2182. 00:28:56,678 --> 00:28:59,558
  2183. Absolutely terrifying in every
  2184. way, but incredible and wonderful.
  2185.  
  2186. 455
  2187. 00:28:59,728 --> 00:29:04,258
  2188. Our second gig as people,
  2189. but our first gig as Coldplay.
  2190.  
  2191. 456
  2192. 00:29:04,428 --> 00:29:06,778
  2193. - The Coldplay.
  2194. - Oh, The Coldplay, yeah.
  2195.  
  2196. 457
  2197. 00:29:06,958 --> 00:29:08,388
  2198. Where did our name come from?
  2199.  
  2200. 458
  2201. 00:29:08,568 --> 00:29:10,648
  2202. A friend of ours
  2203. had a band called Coldplay,
  2204.  
  2205. 459
  2206. 00:29:10,828 --> 00:29:14,878
  2207. and they decided they didn't like
  2208. the name, so we just stole it.
  2209.  
  2210. 460
  2211. 00:29:15,048 --> 00:29:17,838
  2212. They said it was a rubbish name
  2213. and they didn't want it anymore.
  2214.  
  2215. 461
  2216. 00:29:18,008 --> 00:29:20,618
  2217. Turned out to be a really hard
  2218. word to pronounce to people.
  2219.  
  2220. 462
  2221. 00:29:20,798 --> 00:29:23,318
  2222. You say you're in a band. "What's
  2223. the band called?" Coldplay.
  2224.  
  2225. 463
  2226. 00:29:23,488 --> 00:29:25,758
  2227. "What Goldblade? Cold Cut?"
  2228.  
  2229. 464
  2230. 00:29:25,928 --> 00:29:28,588
  2231. - It's really hard.
  2232. - Gold Blend.
  2233.  
  2234. 465
  2235. 00:29:28,758 --> 00:29:31,628
  2236. I still don't feel that
  2237. we've quite got the name right,
  2238.  
  2239. 466
  2240. 00:29:31,808 --> 00:29:34,978
  2241. but I think we might
  2242. be a bit late to change it.
  2243.  
  2244. 467
  2245. 00:29:35,158 --> 00:29:38,198
  2246. Every show seemed
  2247. like a milestone really.
  2248.  
  2249. 468
  2250. 00:29:38,378 --> 00:29:40,468
  2251. I remember the feeling
  2252. and the buzz in these rooms,
  2253.  
  2254. 469
  2255. 00:29:40,638 --> 00:29:44,038
  2256. the sweat dripping off the ceiling,
  2257. smoke, and the sticky floors.
  2258.  
  2259. 470
  2260. 00:29:44,508 --> 00:29:46,468
  2261. The toilet circuit,
  2262. as it's known,
  2263.  
  2264. 471
  2265. 00:29:46,648 --> 00:29:49,818
  2266. that kind of made us realize,
  2267. this is gonna be hard work.
  2268.  
  2269. 472
  2270. 00:29:49,998 --> 00:29:52,478
  2271. You do have to put
  2272. the time and effort into it.
  2273.  
  2274. 473
  2275. 00:29:52,648 --> 00:29:54,998
  2276. We were prepared to do that
  2277. for as long as it took,
  2278.  
  2279. 474
  2280. 00:29:55,178 --> 00:29:57,218
  2281. just carrying on
  2282. and getting skanked
  2283.  
  2284. 475
  2285. 00:29:57,398 --> 00:30:00,658
  2286. by money-grabbing,
  2287. shady Camden promoters.
  2288.  
  2289. 476
  2290. 00:30:00,838 --> 00:30:03,448
  2291. I think in the back of my head,
  2292. I must've been thinking,
  2293.  
  2294. 477
  2295. 00:30:03,618 --> 00:30:05,798
  2296. "Yeah, I'd like to be
  2297. involved in this."
  2298.  
  2299. 478
  2300. 00:30:05,968 --> 00:30:08,644
  2301. And then I remember Chris telling me
  2302. how they were getting ripped off,
  2303.  
  2304. 479
  2305. 00:30:08,668 --> 00:30:11,498
  2306. and I thought,
  2307. "Maybe I could do a better job."
  2308.  
  2309. 480
  2310. 00:30:11,668 --> 00:30:14,278
  2311. He dropped out of university
  2312. to come and manage us,
  2313.  
  2314. 481
  2315. 00:30:14,458 --> 00:30:16,938
  2316. which was an extraordinarily
  2317. selfless move.
  2318.  
  2319. 482
  2320. 00:30:17,108 --> 00:30:19,328
  2321. Then it went to the next level.
  2322.  
  2323. 483
  2324. 00:30:19,508 --> 00:30:22,134
  2325. Deep in the lair of rock and
  2326. roll, we find Mr. William Champion.
  2327.  
  2328. 484
  2329. 00:30:22,158 --> 00:30:23,898
  2330. - Bit nervous?
  2331. - Uh, little bit.
  2332.  
  2333. 485
  2334. 00:30:24,078 --> 00:30:26,468
  2335. - Where's the Harvey character?
  2336. - Where?
  2337.  
  2338. 486
  2339. 00:30:26,638 --> 00:30:29,224
  2340. I think I took it pretty seriously
  2341. from the moment I came on board.
  2342.  
  2343. 487
  2344. 00:30:29,248 --> 00:30:32,908
  2345. I had a book, I remember
  2346. called "How to Manage a Band."
  2347.  
  2348. 488
  2349. 00:30:33,078 --> 00:30:35,168
  2350. I had the longest list of people
  2351. to approach,
  2352.  
  2353. 489
  2354. 00:30:35,348 --> 00:30:38,958
  2355. but no one wanted to take my call
  2356. and I was quite down on myself.
  2357.  
  2358. 490
  2359. 00:30:39,398 --> 00:30:42,438
  2360. I think what kept us going was
  2361. the songs kept getting better,
  2362.  
  2363. 491
  2364. 00:30:42,618 --> 00:30:44,358
  2365. the shows kept getting better.
  2366.  
  2367. 492
  2368. 00:30:44,528 --> 00:30:46,968
  2369. I think Chris always had enough
  2370. self-belief for all of us,
  2371.  
  2372. 493
  2373. 00:30:47,138 --> 00:30:48,798
  2374. you know what I mean?
  2375.  
  2376. 494
  2377. 00:30:48,968 --> 00:30:51,358
  2378. The Falcon was the first time
  2379. that Steve Lamacq came.
  2380.  
  2381. 495
  2382. 00:30:51,538 --> 00:30:54,538
  2383. Fuck me. Steve Lamacq's in the
  2384. audience, so we're, like, wow.
  2385.  
  2386. 496
  2387. 00:30:54,718 --> 00:30:57,458
  2388. He's like the Yoda of radio
  2389. in Britain.
  2390.  
  2391. 497
  2392. 00:30:57,628 --> 00:30:59,808
  2393. He came to us
  2394. before anybody else.
  2395.  
  2396. 498
  2397. 00:30:59,978 --> 00:31:02,739
  2398. I couldn't believe it. I started sweating.
  2399. Steve Lamacq, Steve Lamacq.
  2400.  
  2401. 499
  2402. 00:31:02,898 --> 00:31:04,418
  2403. I remember Lamacq calling me.
  2404.  
  2405. 500
  2406. 00:31:04,588 --> 00:31:06,394
  2407. "Phil, this is the first
  2408. time I've ever offered"
  2409.  
  2410. 501
  2411. 00:31:06,418 --> 00:31:09,028
  2412. a Radio 1 evening session
  2413. to an unsigned act.
  2414.  
  2415. 502
  2416. 00:31:09,208 --> 00:31:10,638
  2417. "Are you guys up for it?"
  2418.  
  2419. 503
  2420. 00:31:10,818 --> 00:31:12,178
  2421. - Sorry, mate, thank you.
  2422. - Cheers.
  2423.  
  2424. 504
  2425. 00:31:12,248 --> 00:31:15,948
  2426. Got accosted
  2427. by some autograph hunters.
  2428.  
  2429. 505
  2430. 00:31:16,128 --> 00:31:19,014
  2431. They weren't looking for our autograph.
  2432. They were looking for Bryan Ferry's.
  2433.  
  2434. 506
  2435. 00:31:19,038 --> 00:31:20,388
  2436. Apparently, he lives round here.
  2437.  
  2438. 507
  2439. 00:31:28,268 --> 00:31:30,138
  2440. It's Lamacq
  2441. Live from Radio 1,
  2442.  
  2443. 508
  2444. 00:31:30,318 --> 00:31:32,618
  2445. and we can go across now
  2446. to our Maida Vale studios.
  2447.  
  2448. 509
  2449. 00:31:32,798 --> 00:31:34,888
  2450. Hello, Coldplay?
  2451.  
  2452. 510
  2453. 00:31:35,058 --> 00:31:36,774
  2454. - Hello, Steve.
  2455. - All right, Steve.
  2456.  
  2457. 511
  2458. 00:31:36,798 --> 00:31:38,424
  2459. You had a single out,
  2460. didn't you?
  2461.  
  2462. 512
  2463. 00:31:38,448 --> 00:31:40,008
  2464. I didn't even know
  2465. you had a record out.
  2466.  
  2467. 513
  2468. 00:31:40,108 --> 00:31:41,978
  2469. We put it
  2470. in your pigeonhole.
  2471.  
  2472. 514
  2473. 00:31:42,148 --> 00:31:42,938
  2474. You didn't listen to it, you bastard.
  2475.  
  2476. 515
  2477. 00:31:43,108 --> 00:31:44,808
  2478. I'm not gonna say that.
  2479.  
  2480. 516
  2481. 00:31:44,978 --> 00:31:47,678
  2482. What's the first song
  2483. you're gonna do?
  2484.  
  2485. 517
  2486. 00:31:47,858 --> 00:31:49,654
  2487. We're gonna do a song called
  2488. "Bigger Stronger," which was our single in May.
  2489.  
  2490. 518
  2491. 00:31:49,678 --> 00:31:51,338
  2492. It might've passed
  2493. people by.
  2494.  
  2495. 519
  2496. 00:31:51,508 --> 00:31:53,638
  2497. All right, it's Coldplay then,
  2498. live on Radio 1.
  2499.  
  2500. 520
  2501. 00:31:53,818 --> 00:31:55,038
  2502. Thank you, Steve.
  2503.  
  2504. 521
  2505. 00:32:13,578 --> 00:32:15,488
  2506. It was a really intense
  2507. period of time
  2508.  
  2509. 522
  2510. 00:32:15,668 --> 00:32:18,578
  2511. because we were so determined
  2512. to not fail.
  2513.  
  2514. 523
  2515. 00:32:18,758 --> 00:32:21,148
  2516. We just weren't gonna give up
  2517. until we got somewhere
  2518.  
  2519. 524
  2520. 00:32:21,318 --> 00:32:23,888
  2521. and made an album
  2522. and got a record deal.
  2523.  
  2524. 525
  2525. 00:32:24,068 --> 00:32:26,018
  2526. I could tell the songs...
  2527. They were real songs,
  2528.  
  2529. 526
  2530. 00:32:26,198 --> 00:32:27,978
  2531. and I just thought,
  2532.  
  2533. 527
  2534. 00:32:28,158 --> 00:32:30,558
  2535. "Okay, this could be something
  2536. that becomes part of my life."
  2537.  
  2538. 528
  2539. 00:32:30,638 --> 00:32:33,638
  2540. And then within a few weeks,
  2541. it was everything.
  2542.  
  2543. 529
  2544. 00:32:35,288 --> 00:32:37,688
  2545. I was in the bathroom
  2546. in my mum and dad's house,
  2547.  
  2548. 530
  2549. 00:32:37,858 --> 00:32:38,858
  2550. reading the NME.
  2551.  
  2552. 531
  2553. 00:32:39,038 --> 00:32:41,688
  2554. It said "20 New Bands for 1999."
  2555.  
  2556. 532
  2557. 00:32:41,868 --> 00:32:43,998
  2558. And sure enough
  2559. there was Muse, Elbow,
  2560.  
  2561. 533
  2562. 00:32:44,168 --> 00:32:46,038
  2563. Gay Dad, Bellatrix,
  2564.  
  2565. 534
  2566. 00:32:46,218 --> 00:32:48,568
  2567. and then it came to Coldplay
  2568. and I fainted, basically.
  2569.  
  2570. 535
  2571. 00:32:48,738 --> 00:32:50,738
  2572. Yeah, Chris fell off the toilet.
  2573.  
  2574. 536
  2575. 00:32:50,918 --> 00:32:53,698
  2576. I basically had a Doc Brown
  2577. from Back to the Future moment.
  2578.  
  2579. 537
  2580. 00:32:53,878 --> 00:32:55,918
  2581. And I called Will,
  2582. I called Jon, I called Guy.
  2583.  
  2584. 538
  2585. 00:32:56,098 --> 00:32:57,788
  2586. I was like,
  2587. "Have you seen this?"
  2588.  
  2589. 539
  2590. 00:32:57,968 --> 00:33:00,748
  2591. It said, "Bigger Stronger"
  2592. was their no-key debut release.
  2593.  
  2594. 540
  2595. 00:33:00,928 --> 00:33:03,798
  2596. Expect copies of it to be worth a
  2597. small mortgage come Christmas."
  2598.  
  2599. 541
  2600. 00:33:03,968 --> 00:33:05,408
  2601. Fucking hell, man.
  2602.  
  2603. 542
  2604. 00:33:05,578 --> 00:33:08,238
  2605. One paragraph changed
  2606. our entire lives.
  2607.  
  2608. 543
  2609. 00:33:08,408 --> 00:33:11,808
  2610. The next show after
  2611. that NMEtip...
  2612.  
  2613. 544
  2614. 00:33:11,978 --> 00:33:14,638
  2615. I just remember it
  2616. being rammed wall-to-wall.
  2617.  
  2618. 545
  2619. 00:33:17,418 --> 00:33:19,558
  2620. Things happened
  2621. really quick after that.
  2622.  
  2623. 546
  2624. 00:33:19,728 --> 00:33:22,144
  2625. Loads of different record companies,
  2626. the ones that had stonewalled me,
  2627.  
  2628. 547
  2629. 00:33:22,168 --> 00:33:24,468
  2630. they all came back and said,
  2631. "Oh, found your demo again."
  2632.  
  2633. 548
  2634. 00:33:24,648 --> 00:33:25,778
  2635. It was amazing.
  2636.  
  2637. 549
  2638. 00:33:25,948 --> 00:33:28,558
  2639. Yeah, April 15, 1999,
  2640.  
  2641. 550
  2642. 00:33:28,738 --> 00:33:30,738
  2643. we signed, didn't we,
  2644. in Trafalgar Square.
  2645.  
  2646. 551
  2647. 00:33:30,908 --> 00:33:33,568
  2648. We got loads of offers, but it
  2649. was always gonna be Parlophone,
  2650.  
  2651. 552
  2652. 00:33:33,738 --> 00:33:35,218
  2653. the home of the Beatles.
  2654.  
  2655. 553
  2656. 00:33:35,398 --> 00:33:37,968
  2657. And they had Radiohead,
  2658. they had Supergrass.
  2659.  
  2660. 554
  2661. 00:33:38,138 --> 00:33:39,438
  2662. I remember it very well,
  2663.  
  2664. 555
  2665. 00:33:39,618 --> 00:33:41,358
  2666. the feeling of,
  2667. "We have something now."
  2668.  
  2669. 556
  2670. 00:33:41,528 --> 00:33:45,708
  2671. But it goes back to Chris's
  2672. list. It was a tick done.
  2673.  
  2674. 557
  2675. 00:33:45,888 --> 00:33:47,888
  2676. Now let's get on
  2677. with the important work.
  2678.  
  2679. 558
  2680. 00:33:48,628 --> 00:33:50,058
  2681. I definitely don't remember
  2682.  
  2683. 559
  2684. 00:33:50,238 --> 00:33:52,538
  2685. it being a sense of,
  2686. wow, we've made it.
  2687.  
  2688. 560
  2689. 00:33:52,718 --> 00:33:55,238
  2690. It was more like a sense of,
  2691. okay, this is the beginning.
  2692.  
  2693. 561
  2694. 00:33:59,728 --> 00:34:01,288
  2695. Yeah, boys.
  2696.  
  2697. 562
  2698. 00:34:27,188 --> 00:34:30,318
  2699. We did our first UK tour
  2700. with seven guys on a bus.
  2701.  
  2702. 563
  2703. 00:34:30,498 --> 00:34:32,628
  2704. We couldn't believe our luck.
  2705.  
  2706. 564
  2707. 00:34:32,798 --> 00:34:35,478
  2708. It's amazing to still be doing the
  2709. same thing almost 20 years later.
  2710.  
  2711. 565
  2712. 00:34:42,638 --> 00:34:43,744
  2713. It's been a constant evolution.
  2714.  
  2715. 566
  2716. 00:34:43,768 --> 00:34:45,468
  2717. So, it doesn't feel like
  2718.  
  2719. 567
  2720. 00:34:45,638 --> 00:34:47,948
  2721. we've suddenly jumped from
  2722. playing a small pub in Camden
  2723.  
  2724. 568
  2725. 00:34:48,118 --> 00:34:50,598
  2726. to a massive stadium
  2727. in Saão Paulo.
  2728.  
  2729. 569
  2730. 00:34:50,778 --> 00:34:52,648
  2731. I think sometimes
  2732. it's that gradual process
  2733.  
  2734. 570
  2735. 00:34:52,818 --> 00:34:55,778
  2736. that clouds your feeling
  2737. of quite how far you've come.
  2738.  
  2739. 571
  2740. 00:35:02,878 --> 00:35:06,228
  2741. But the scale of things going
  2742. on around us is absolutely immense.
  2743.  
  2744. 572
  2745. 00:35:06,398 --> 00:35:07,718
  2746. Hoppy, where's Hoppy gone?
  2747.  
  2748. 573
  2749. 00:35:07,838 --> 00:35:09,928
  2750. Would you come up
  2751. on stage a second?
  2752.  
  2753. 574
  2754. 00:35:10,098 --> 00:35:12,708
  2755. Everyone, this is Hoppy, he's been
  2756. doing our guitars for 20 years.
  2757.  
  2758. 575
  2759. 00:35:17,278 --> 00:35:20,198
  2760. He's been with us since we were
  2761. traveling around in a tiny little van,
  2762.  
  2763. 576
  2764. 00:35:20,368 --> 00:35:23,418
  2765. smaller than this stage
  2766. and playing to maybe 20 people.
  2767.  
  2768. 577
  2769. 00:35:23,588 --> 00:35:26,908
  2770. And all that time he's been with us and been
  2771. patient, and so have a lot of our crew,
  2772.  
  2773. 578
  2774. 00:35:26,938 --> 00:35:28,598
  2775. and we wanna send love out
  2776. to them
  2777.  
  2778. 579
  2779. 00:35:28,768 --> 00:35:31,248
  2780. because they work so hard
  2781. to make this thing possible.
  2782.  
  2783. 580
  2784. 00:35:32,168 --> 00:35:34,038
  2785. The crew have been incredible.
  2786.  
  2787. 581
  2788. 00:35:34,208 --> 00:35:36,969
  2789. There's been a handful that have been
  2790. with us from the very beginning.
  2791.  
  2792. 582
  2793. 00:35:37,998 --> 00:35:39,738
  2794. They're legends within
  2795. the industry now,
  2796.  
  2797. 583
  2798. 00:35:39,908 --> 00:35:41,738
  2799. which is wonderful.
  2800.  
  2801. 584
  2802. 00:35:43,088 --> 00:35:44,768
  2803. Everyone has
  2804. this conception of us,
  2805.  
  2806. 585
  2807. 00:35:44,918 --> 00:35:47,658
  2808. sort of like we've been made up
  2809. by a big record company,
  2810.  
  2811. 586
  2812. 00:35:47,828 --> 00:35:49,358
  2813. like some sort
  2814. of indie boy band,
  2815.  
  2816. 587
  2817. 00:35:49,528 --> 00:35:51,618
  2818. but we've done it all
  2819. ourselves really.
  2820.  
  2821. 588
  2822. 00:35:51,788 --> 00:35:55,798
  2823. Our manager's our best mate,
  2824. and we produce the record.
  2825.  
  2826. 589
  2827. 00:35:55,968 --> 00:35:57,278
  2828. That's what we get a buzz off,
  2829.  
  2830. 590
  2831. 00:35:57,448 --> 00:35:59,668
  2832. is the sort of homemade-ness
  2833. of it.
  2834.  
  2835. 591
  2836. 00:35:59,848 --> 00:36:01,458
  2837. But no one really sees that
  2838.  
  2839. 592
  2840. 00:36:01,628 --> 00:36:03,978
  2841. 'cause they see the slick
  2842. TV adverts and stuff.
  2843.  
  2844. 593
  2845. 00:36:05,238 --> 00:36:07,378
  2846. So what other lyrics
  2847. could go on T-shirts?
  2848.  
  2849. 594
  2850. 00:36:07,548 --> 00:36:11,858
  2851. It'd be a bit morose to have "We
  2852. never change, do we?" Wouldn't it?
  2853.  
  2854. 595
  2855. 00:36:12,028 --> 00:36:14,118
  2856. That would be funny
  2857. if you wore it all the time.
  2858.  
  2859. 596
  2860. 00:36:16,118 --> 00:36:19,558
  2861. "Can anybody fly this thing?"
  2862. Good one, Hops.
  2863.  
  2864. 597
  2865. 00:36:19,738 --> 00:36:21,754
  2866. That's my favorite line
  2867. of any of our songs.
  2868.  
  2869. 598
  2870. 00:36:21,778 --> 00:36:22,958
  2871. Yeah, same.
  2872.  
  2873. 599
  2874. 00:36:23,128 --> 00:36:24,648
  2875. When you're on your first album,
  2876.  
  2877. 600
  2878. 00:36:24,828 --> 00:36:28,698
  2879. a 14.99 WHSmith globe is
  2880. about as big as production gets.
  2881.  
  2882. 601
  2883. 00:36:28,868 --> 00:36:31,958
  2884. But now we have, like,
  2885. a multimedia, 3-D thing.
  2886.  
  2887. 602
  2888. 00:36:32,618 --> 00:36:33,788
  2889. What's the scale?
  2890.  
  2891. 603
  2892. 00:36:33,968 --> 00:36:35,788
  2893. One to one.
  2894.  
  2895. 604
  2896. 00:36:35,968 --> 00:36:38,168
  2897. - So, the real thing will be bigger?
  2898. - Twice the size.
  2899.  
  2900. 605
  2901. 00:36:38,228 --> 00:36:39,758
  2902. Twice the size. At least.
  2903.  
  2904. 606
  2905. 00:36:39,928 --> 00:36:41,708
  2906. So, these are
  2907. the tickets we've sold.
  2908.  
  2909. 607
  2910. 00:36:41,888 --> 00:36:43,488
  2911. Pretty much everyone's
  2912. still there.
  2913.  
  2914. 608
  2915. 00:36:43,628 --> 00:36:46,538
  2916. We've just kinda kept
  2917. adding people along the way,
  2918.  
  2919. 609
  2920. 00:36:46,718 --> 00:36:48,068
  2921. one big family.
  2922.  
  2923. 610
  2924. 00:36:48,238 --> 00:36:49,548
  2925. Musically in the past,
  2926.  
  2927. 611
  2928. 00:36:49,718 --> 00:36:51,288
  2929. I think we felt
  2930. a lot of pressure
  2931.  
  2932. 612
  2933. 00:36:51,458 --> 00:36:53,378
  2934. to have everything
  2935. come from the four of us.
  2936.  
  2937. 613
  2938. 00:36:53,548 --> 00:36:55,158
  2939. We started collaborating
  2940. with people
  2941.  
  2942. 614
  2943. 00:36:55,338 --> 00:36:58,028
  2944. just 'cause it opened up
  2945. a new way of making music.
  2946.  
  2947. 615
  2948. 00:37:07,998 --> 00:37:09,608
  2949. Can they film this? Course.
  2950.  
  2951. 616
  2952. 00:37:09,788 --> 00:37:12,218
  2953. It's Chris's phone.
  2954.  
  2955. 617
  2956. 00:37:16,838 --> 00:37:18,878
  2957. We still have
  2958. that homemade philosophy,
  2959.  
  2960. 618
  2961. 00:37:19,058 --> 00:37:22,278
  2962. but now we have
  2963. a very open door policy.
  2964.  
  2965. 619
  2966. 00:37:22,448 --> 00:37:25,018
  2967. Basically if you show up,
  2968. you might get a shot.
  2969.  
  2970. 620
  2971. 00:37:25,188 --> 00:37:28,928
  2972. But it helps if
  2973. you're, like, a legend.
  2974.  
  2975. 621
  2976. 00:37:31,288 --> 00:37:33,108
  2977. Oh, that sounds so great. Thank you.
  2978.  
  2979. 622
  2980. 00:37:33,288 --> 00:37:35,118
  2981. Let's just do
  2982. that right now.Okay.
  2983.  
  2984. 623
  2985. 00:37:35,288 --> 00:37:36,834
  2986. The studio we recorded
  2987. with Beyoncé
  2988.  
  2989. 624
  2990. 00:37:36,858 --> 00:37:38,468
  2991. was actually my son's bedroom,
  2992.  
  2993. 625
  2994. 00:37:38,638 --> 00:37:40,818
  2995. so we had to make it look like
  2996. a studio a little bit.
  2997.  
  2998. 626
  2999. 00:37:40,988 --> 00:37:42,858
  3000. He wants me to do it
  3001. softer again.
  3002.  
  3003. 627
  3004. 00:37:43,168 --> 00:37:46,208
  3005. And just make her feel
  3006. as special as she is.
  3007.  
  3008. 628
  3009. 00:38:47,008 --> 00:38:48,488
  3010. It might be strange
  3011. for some people
  3012.  
  3013. 629
  3014. 00:38:48,668 --> 00:38:50,228
  3015. that Stargate are
  3016. producing a song
  3017.  
  3018. 630
  3019. 00:38:50,408 --> 00:38:53,318
  3020. which Noel Gallagher's on,
  3021. that Beyoncé is also on.
  3022.  
  3023. 631
  3024. 00:38:53,498 --> 00:38:55,628
  3025. Even for me it took a while
  3026. to get my head around it.
  3027.  
  3028. 632
  3029. 00:38:56,108 --> 00:38:59,288
  3030. Oasis was such a pivotal band
  3031. for us in the mid-'90s.
  3032.  
  3033. 633
  3034. 00:39:10,858 --> 00:39:13,274
  3035. So, it was just like, this
  3036. is called A Head Full of Dreams.
  3037.  
  3038. 634
  3039. 00:39:13,298 --> 00:39:15,078
  3040. It should be about
  3041. making dreams come true.
  3042.  
  3043. 635
  3044. 00:39:15,258 --> 00:39:18,438
  3045. And one of our dreams was
  3046. to have Noel play on something.
  3047.  
  3048. 636
  3049. 00:39:33,188 --> 00:39:35,838
  3050. Noel Gallagher, by his own
  3051. admission, is a bit of a grump
  3052.  
  3053. 637
  3054. 00:39:36,018 --> 00:39:39,588
  3055. and doesn't share my worldview
  3056. in any way at all.
  3057.  
  3058. 638
  3059. 00:39:39,758 --> 00:39:42,478
  3060. That's the whole point of the album.
  3061. It's like, everyone's all right,
  3062.  
  3063. 639
  3064. 00:39:42,628 --> 00:39:45,418
  3065. even the people that don't really
  3066. like the concept of this album
  3067.  
  3068. 640
  3069. 00:39:45,588 --> 00:39:47,858
  3070. have shown up to play on it.
  3071.  
  3072. 641
  3073. 00:39:48,028 --> 00:39:49,598
  3074. So, thank you, Noel.
  3075.  
  3076. 642
  3077. 00:39:50,728 --> 00:39:52,598
  3078. I noticed that
  3079. your kids were credited.
  3080.  
  3081. 643
  3082. 00:39:52,768 --> 00:39:54,988
  3083. Right,
  3084. for better or worse,
  3085.  
  3086. 644
  3087. 00:39:55,168 --> 00:39:57,624
  3088. if you want your kids to appear on
  3089. your album you have to strike a deal.
  3090.  
  3091. 645
  3092. 00:39:57,648 --> 00:39:59,258
  3093. First of all, they have
  3094. to like the song.
  3095.  
  3096. 646
  3097. 00:39:59,428 --> 00:40:01,958
  3098. Second of all, there has to be
  3099. maybe a pizza involved.
  3100.  
  3101. 647
  3102. 00:40:02,128 --> 00:40:03,698
  3103. It's basically bribery.
  3104.  
  3105. 648
  3106. 00:40:03,868 --> 00:40:05,568
  3107. That was so beautiful.
  3108.  
  3109. 649
  3110. 00:40:05,738 --> 00:40:07,178
  3111. Generally with
  3112. A Head Full of Dreams,
  3113.  
  3114. 650
  3115. 00:40:07,348 --> 00:40:09,464
  3116. we just asked anyone who was
  3117. around if they would sing.
  3118.  
  3119. 651
  3120. 00:40:09,488 --> 00:40:11,688
  3121. We wanted to try and embrace
  3122. all the things that we love
  3123.  
  3124. 652
  3125. 00:40:11,788 --> 00:40:13,528
  3126. and the people
  3127. that we think are awesome.
  3128.  
  3129. 653
  3130. 00:40:14,138 --> 00:40:15,708
  3131. Just the idea of inclusivity.
  3132.  
  3133. 654
  3134. 00:41:21,648 --> 00:41:24,648
  3135. You started off as four
  3136. friends just playing together,
  3137.  
  3138. 655
  3139. 00:41:24,818 --> 00:41:27,348
  3140. and you became the biggest
  3141. rock band in the world.
  3142.  
  3143. 656
  3144. 00:41:27,518 --> 00:41:31,048
  3145. I was wondering, what did
  3146. you lose in that process?
  3147.  
  3148. 657
  3149. 00:41:31,218 --> 00:41:33,478
  3150. Our drummer.
  3151.  
  3152. 658
  3153. 00:41:35,218 --> 00:41:38,098
  3154. Very early on, I learnt
  3155. that without the five of us,
  3156.  
  3157. 659
  3158. 00:41:38,268 --> 00:41:40,058
  3159. we just can't be Coldplay.
  3160.  
  3161. 660
  3162. 00:41:40,228 --> 00:41:42,968
  3163. I lost sight of
  3164. what makes a band a band.
  3165.  
  3166. 661
  3167. 00:41:43,148 --> 00:41:46,098
  3168. The only thing we have going
  3169. for us is the friendship.
  3170.  
  3171. 662
  3172. 00:41:46,838 --> 00:41:49,458
  3173. And the course of our band
  3174. could've dramatically changed
  3175.  
  3176. 663
  3177. 00:41:49,628 --> 00:41:52,678
  3178. because we basically kicked
  3179. Will out.
  3180.  
  3181. 664
  3182. 00:41:53,288 --> 00:41:55,978
  3183. It was kind of like the darkest
  3184. and worst point
  3185.  
  3186. 665
  3187. 00:41:56,158 --> 00:41:57,808
  3188. in our time together.
  3189.  
  3190. 666
  3191. 00:41:58,898 --> 00:42:01,638
  3192. The excitement, everything we'd
  3193. done was focused on getting signed.
  3194.  
  3195. 667
  3196. 00:42:01,818 --> 00:42:03,378
  3197. We got signed and thought,
  3198. "Oh, God."
  3199.  
  3200. 668
  3201. 00:42:03,558 --> 00:42:05,338
  3202. Yeah, what do we do now?
  3203.  
  3204. 669
  3205. 00:42:06,298 --> 00:42:07,668
  3206. I got to a
  3207. certain point whereby
  3208.  
  3209. 670
  3210. 00:42:07,693 --> 00:42:09,234
  3211. I didn't know enough about
  3212. how to play the drums
  3213.  
  3214. 671
  3215. 00:42:09,258 --> 00:42:11,778
  3216. in order to keep up with the
  3217. music that was being written.
  3218.  
  3219. 672
  3220. 00:42:17,218 --> 00:42:20,218
  3221. I certainly wasn't good enough
  3222. to go through the rigors of recording.
  3223.  
  3224. 673
  3225. 00:42:22,658 --> 00:42:25,408
  3226. Shall we leave it and
  3227. go on to another one? Yeah.
  3228.  
  3229. 674
  3230. 00:42:25,578 --> 00:42:29,318
  3231. We were working with a producer that
  3232. was very meticulous about perfection.
  3233.  
  3234. 675
  3235. 00:42:29,498 --> 00:42:32,108
  3236. And it was all about, "Will's
  3237. drumming isn't up to scratch."
  3238.  
  3239. 676
  3240. 00:42:32,278 --> 00:42:35,198
  3241. And we believed it,
  3242. you know, we believed it.
  3243.  
  3244. 677
  3245. 00:42:36,198 --> 00:42:37,588
  3246. Things got very difficult.
  3247.  
  3248. 678
  3249. 00:42:37,768 --> 00:42:39,108
  3250. Chris and I had a...
  3251.  
  3252. 679
  3253. 00:42:39,288 --> 00:42:42,988
  3254. I left the band,
  3255. which was absolutely miserable.
  3256.  
  3257. 680
  3258. 00:42:43,158 --> 00:42:45,508
  3259. I was just a bit of
  3260. a dick to Will,
  3261.  
  3262. 681
  3263. 00:42:45,688 --> 00:42:48,558
  3264. and, you know, we didn't know
  3265. what we were doing.
  3266.  
  3267. 682
  3268. 00:42:48,728 --> 00:42:53,258
  3269. So, Will left,
  3270. and we did some auditions.
  3271.  
  3272. 683
  3273. 00:42:53,428 --> 00:42:55,348
  3274. And I think probably
  3275. doing those auditions,
  3276.  
  3277. 684
  3278. 00:42:55,518 --> 00:42:58,918
  3279. it really kind of struck us
  3280. that this was awful.
  3281.  
  3282. 685
  3283. 00:42:59,088 --> 00:43:02,788
  3284. I just woke up and I was like,
  3285. "This is totally wrong."
  3286.  
  3287. 686
  3288. 00:43:02,958 --> 00:43:07,358
  3289. You know, we said, "Look, please
  3290. will you come back?" Um...
  3291.  
  3292. 687
  3293. 00:43:07,528 --> 00:43:08,878
  3294. And thank God he did.
  3295.  
  3296. 688
  3297. 00:43:09,058 --> 00:43:10,748
  3298. If we'd gone down
  3299. a different path,
  3300.  
  3301. 689
  3302. 00:43:10,928 --> 00:43:13,888
  3303. I just know that we would have
  3304. at some point failed.
  3305.  
  3306. 690
  3307. 00:43:26,468 --> 00:43:28,338
  3308. This is it. Woof!
  3309.  
  3310. 691
  3311. 00:43:28,508 --> 00:43:30,118
  3312. Coldplay!
  3313.  
  3314. 692
  3315. 00:43:30,298 --> 00:43:32,468
  3316. I am glad it happened
  3317.  
  3318. 693
  3319. 00:43:32,648 --> 00:43:34,948
  3320. because I think it was
  3321. an incredibly important lesson
  3322.  
  3323. 694
  3324. 00:43:35,128 --> 00:43:38,388
  3325. as to what we should
  3326. hold on to most of all.
  3327.  
  3328. 695
  3329. 00:43:38,568 --> 00:43:41,438
  3330. This is what we started,
  3331. this is what we're gonna continue.
  3332.  
  3333. 696
  3334. 00:43:41,608 --> 00:43:42,958
  3335. Will, Will.
  3336.  
  3337. 697
  3338. 00:43:43,128 --> 00:43:45,088
  3339. The drummer always gets
  3340. a lot of stick,
  3341.  
  3342. 698
  3343. 00:43:45,268 --> 00:43:47,918
  3344. if you'll excuse
  3345. the turn of phrase.
  3346.  
  3347. 699
  3348. 00:43:48,098 --> 00:43:52,878
  3349. If I've got any advice
  3350. to give to any aspiring bands,
  3351.  
  3352. 700
  3353. 00:43:53,058 --> 00:43:56,448
  3354. it's just don't fuck around
  3355. with your drummer.
  3356.  
  3357. 701
  3358. 00:43:56,628 --> 00:44:00,848
  3359. A band is a magic thing,
  3360. and everyone improves together.
  3361.  
  3362. 702
  3363. 00:44:01,018 --> 00:44:03,978
  3364. That's what's since given
  3365. Will his power.
  3366.  
  3367. 703
  3368. 00:44:04,158 --> 00:44:06,378
  3369. He's like the base of a statue,
  3370.  
  3371. 704
  3372. 00:44:06,548 --> 00:44:09,328
  3373. and without that,
  3374. the thing topples.
  3375.  
  3376. 705
  3377. 00:44:09,508 --> 00:44:12,288
  3378. The truth of it is that,
  3379. really, without the other three,
  3380.  
  3381. 706
  3382. 00:44:12,468 --> 00:44:14,778
  3383. each of us would be
  3384. kind of screwed.
  3385.  
  3386. 707
  3387. 00:44:16,038 --> 00:44:17,998
  3388. I just couldn't do it on my own.
  3389.  
  3390. 708
  3391. 00:44:19,078 --> 00:44:20,518
  3392. I couldn't do it.
  3393.  
  3394. 709
  3395. 00:44:27,138 --> 00:44:28,528
  3396. Jonny.Yeah.
  3397.  
  3398. 710
  3399. 00:44:34,488 --> 00:44:36,358
  3400. Great track. I love that.
  3401.  
  3402. 711
  3403. 00:44:44,328 --> 00:44:45,498
  3404. Well...
  3405.  
  3406. 712
  3407. 00:44:49,808 --> 00:44:50,988
  3408. This is great.
  3409.  
  3410. 713
  3411. 00:44:53,118 --> 00:44:54,818
  3412. Great. Thanks.
  3413.  
  3414. 714
  3415. 00:44:54,988 --> 00:44:57,908
  3416. Do you want us to speak French?
  3417. Yeah, that would be wonderful.
  3418.  
  3419. 715
  3420. 00:45:00,598 --> 00:45:03,608
  3421. Parachuteswas made at a time
  3422. when we had a lot of emotions
  3423.  
  3424. 716
  3425. 00:45:03,778 --> 00:45:07,178
  3426. without necessarily knowing what
  3427. they were or how to deal with them.
  3428.  
  3429. 717
  3430. 00:45:07,348 --> 00:45:09,218
  3431. Will's mum was really sick.
  3432.  
  3433. 718
  3434. 00:45:09,388 --> 00:45:11,608
  3435. None of us had any idea
  3436. how to help him through that.
  3437.  
  3438. 719
  3439. 00:45:11,788 --> 00:45:13,878
  3440. He didn't know how
  3441. to express it.
  3442.  
  3443. 720
  3444. 00:45:14,048 --> 00:45:17,618
  3445. She was ill for a couple of years and doing
  3446. really well, in fact, got much better
  3447.  
  3448. 721
  3449. 00:45:17,788 --> 00:45:19,838
  3450. and then unfortunately,
  3451. got much worse again.
  3452.  
  3453. 722
  3454. 00:45:20,008 --> 00:45:22,968
  3455. And it's a very strange time.
  3456.  
  3457. 723
  3458. 00:45:23,148 --> 00:45:25,018
  3459. She was in bands.
  3460. She loved music.
  3461.  
  3462. 724
  3463. 00:45:25,188 --> 00:45:26,588
  3464. It was her life, you know.
  3465.  
  3466. 725
  3467. 00:45:26,758 --> 00:45:29,198
  3468. It's telling that where
  3469. I went was to go
  3470.  
  3471. 726
  3472. 00:45:29,368 --> 00:45:31,108
  3473. and hang out with the band.
  3474.  
  3475. 727
  3476. 00:45:31,288 --> 00:45:34,158
  3477. I went up to their flat
  3478. and told them what was going on.
  3479.  
  3480. 728
  3481. 00:45:34,328 --> 00:45:37,288
  3482. I didn't really have any
  3483. kind of tools to deal with it,
  3484.  
  3485. 729
  3486. 00:45:37,468 --> 00:45:41,598
  3487. I think I just threw myself into this
  3488. extraordinary new life that I had.
  3489.  
  3490. 730
  3491. 00:45:41,778 --> 00:45:44,518
  3492. I mean, it's obviously
  3493. massively significant
  3494.  
  3495. 731
  3496. 00:45:44,688 --> 00:45:46,558
  3497. when you lose a parent anyway,
  3498.  
  3499. 732
  3500. 00:45:46,738 --> 00:45:49,258
  3501. but definitely more poignant
  3502. for the fact
  3503.  
  3504. 733
  3505. 00:45:49,428 --> 00:45:51,788
  3506. that it was something that
  3507. she was so passionate about.
  3508.  
  3509. 734
  3510. 00:45:51,958 --> 00:45:54,178
  3511. She died in May of 2000,
  3512.  
  3513. 735
  3514. 00:45:54,348 --> 00:45:56,878
  3515. and our album was released
  3516. in July of that year.
  3517.  
  3518. 736
  3519. 00:45:58,008 --> 00:46:00,008
  3520. You're speaking to us
  3521. in quite a nervous state
  3522.  
  3523. 737
  3524. 00:46:00,178 --> 00:46:02,488
  3525. because we're just
  3526. approaching crunch time.
  3527.  
  3528. 738
  3529. 00:46:02,668 --> 00:46:05,888
  3530. It's kinda make-or-break for us
  3531. in the next two weeks.
  3532.  
  3533. 739
  3534. 00:46:06,058 --> 00:46:07,838
  3535. We'd had quite a hard time
  3536. in the studio
  3537.  
  3538. 740
  3539. 00:46:08,018 --> 00:46:10,888
  3540. and our confidence
  3541. was kind of wavering a bit.
  3542.  
  3543. 741
  3544. 00:46:11,068 --> 00:46:12,808
  3545. We didn't really know
  3546. what we were doing
  3547.  
  3548. 742
  3549. 00:46:12,978 --> 00:46:15,978
  3550. and we didn't really know what
  3551. sort of band we wanted to be.
  3552.  
  3553. 743
  3554. 00:46:16,158 --> 00:46:18,288
  3555. We almost split up over
  3556. those songs.
  3557.  
  3558. 744
  3559. 00:46:18,458 --> 00:46:20,704
  3560. The amount of times we'd play
  3561. and go, "That was really good,"
  3562.  
  3563. 745
  3564. 00:46:20,728 --> 00:46:23,288
  3565. and then we'd listen to it
  3566. and one of us would get upset.
  3567.  
  3568. 746
  3569. 00:46:24,338 --> 00:46:25,558
  3570. Chris called us in and said,
  3571.  
  3572. 747
  3573. 00:46:25,728 --> 00:46:27,728
  3574. "Listen to this,
  3575. I've got this new song."
  3576.  
  3577. 748
  3578. 00:46:27,908 --> 00:46:30,608
  3579. And it was kind of acoustic-y and
  3580. sounded a bit like Neil Young,
  3581.  
  3582. 749
  3583. 00:46:30,778 --> 00:46:32,518
  3584. slow and countryish.
  3585.  
  3586. 750
  3587. 00:46:34,308 --> 00:46:36,348
  3588. Jonny played
  3589. a big, distorted riff over it
  3590.  
  3591. 751
  3592. 00:46:36,528 --> 00:46:38,008
  3593. and then it was born, really.
  3594.  
  3595. 752
  3596. 00:46:41,788 --> 00:46:43,878
  3597. We went through hell
  3598. recording that album.
  3599.  
  3600. 753
  3601. 00:46:44,048 --> 00:46:48,058
  3602. But when our confidence
  3603. or our enthusiasm was waning,
  3604.  
  3605. 754
  3606. 00:46:48,228 --> 00:46:51,108
  3607. it'd always be Chris that was like,
  3608. "We've gotta get this right."
  3609.  
  3610. 755
  3611. 00:46:52,498 --> 00:46:55,328
  3612. We care about we do
  3613. to a stupid degree.
  3614.  
  3615. 756
  3616. 00:46:55,498 --> 00:46:57,238
  3617. We care when people slag us off.
  3618.  
  3619. 757
  3620. 00:46:57,418 --> 00:46:59,738
  3621. We care about being told we're
  3622. not this and we're not that.
  3623.  
  3624. 758
  3625. 00:46:59,898 --> 00:47:01,858
  3626. There were so many
  3627. miserable hours in the studio,
  3628.  
  3629. 759
  3630. 00:47:02,028 --> 00:47:03,728
  3631. but it was all worth it
  3632. in the end.
  3633.  
  3634. 760
  3635. 00:47:03,898 --> 00:47:06,728
  3636. I didn't push for it in any way,
  3637. but it was a lovely gesture
  3638.  
  3639. 761
  3640. 00:47:06,898 --> 00:47:09,778
  3641. that the guys wanted to put a
  3642. little line in the album sleeve
  3643.  
  3644. 762
  3645. 00:47:09,948 --> 00:47:13,038
  3646. about the album
  3647. being dedicated to my mum.
  3648.  
  3649. 763
  3650. 00:47:13,208 --> 00:47:15,348
  3651. So, I'm grateful for that
  3652.  
  3653. 764
  3654. 00:47:15,518 --> 00:47:18,048
  3655. and it's something that
  3656. she would've been very proud of.
  3657.  
  3658. 765
  3659. 00:47:22,268 --> 00:47:26,008
  3660. All right, our album's out!
  3661. Our album's out!
  3662.  
  3663. 766
  3664. 00:47:26,178 --> 00:47:28,398
  3665. We never thought we'd see
  3666. the day, to be honest.
  3667.  
  3668. 767
  3669. 00:47:37,668 --> 00:47:39,337
  3670. Times are not that
  3671. great these days, but
  3672.  
  3673. 768
  3674. 00:47:39,362 --> 00:47:40,864
  3675. there is a beacon of
  3676. light now and again.
  3677.  
  3678. 769
  3679. 00:47:40,888 --> 00:47:42,588
  3680. The album itself is
  3681. called Parachutes,
  3682.  
  3683. 770
  3684. 00:47:42,768 --> 00:47:45,118
  3685. the single is "Yellow,"
  3686. and the band is Coldplay.
  3687.  
  3688. 771
  3689. 00:47:47,638 --> 00:47:50,248
  3690. Two boxes of Kitekat,
  3691. Coldplay Parachutes,
  3692.  
  3693. 772
  3694. 00:47:50,428 --> 00:47:53,118
  3695. some Hobnobs. Please.
  3696.  
  3697. 773
  3698. 00:48:09,838 --> 00:48:14,188
  3699. Mat, hi, it's day one
  3700. of this one-day video shoot.
  3701.  
  3702. 774
  3703. 00:48:14,358 --> 00:48:15,928
  3704. I feel good. I feel skinny.
  3705.  
  3706. 775
  3707. 00:48:23,498 --> 00:48:26,418
  3708. Another Top of the Pops
  3709. debut now for four London lads
  3710.  
  3711. 776
  3712. 00:48:26,588 --> 00:48:28,458
  3713. fresh from their very first headline tour.
  3714.  
  3715. 777
  3716. 00:48:28,638 --> 00:48:29,808
  3717. This is Coldplay.
  3718.  
  3719. 778
  3720. 00:48:32,988 --> 00:48:36,728
  3721. You guys sold over 35,000
  3722. copies in Holland already.
  3723.  
  3724. 779
  3725. 00:48:36,908 --> 00:48:39,868
  3726. Yesterday we just hit
  3727. one million in the world.
  3728.  
  3729. 780
  3730. 00:48:40,038 --> 00:48:44,088
  3731. Three years ago, girls wouldn't
  3732. even sit next to us at a bus stop.
  3733.  
  3734. 781
  3735. 00:48:44,258 --> 00:48:45,788
  3736. And now they surround us.
  3737.  
  3738. 782
  3739. 00:48:51,048 --> 00:48:54,358
  3740. The highest new entry and
  3741. a brand-new number-one album:
  3742.  
  3743. 783
  3744. 00:48:54,528 --> 00:48:57,138
  3745. Coldplay andParachutes.
  3746.  
  3747. 784
  3748. 00:48:57,318 --> 00:49:00,318
  3749. I don't know how to introduce this right,
  3750. but hopefully this time next year,
  3751.  
  3752. 785
  3753. 00:49:00,358 --> 00:49:02,368
  3754. you'll sing along with it
  3755. because it'll be a hit,
  3756.  
  3757. 786
  3758. 00:49:02,538 --> 00:49:03,798
  3759. and it's called "Yellow."
  3760.  
  3761. 787
  3762. 00:49:12,328 --> 00:49:14,068
  3763. Their debut
  3764. album Parachutes
  3765.  
  3766. 788
  3767. 00:49:14,248 --> 00:49:16,598
  3768. has clocked up an incredible
  3769. three million worldwide.
  3770.  
  3771. 789
  3772. 00:49:16,768 --> 00:49:20,778
  3773. Not bad for four lads
  3774. with an average age of 22.
  3775.  
  3776. 790
  3777. 00:50:18,828 --> 00:50:22,228
  3778. Merci tout le monde,
  3779. thank you so much.
  3780.  
  3781. 791
  3782. 00:50:24,798 --> 00:50:27,708
  3783. People always said, "You'll get
  3784. fed up with that song,"
  3785.  
  3786. 792
  3787. 00:50:27,888 --> 00:50:30,018
  3788. and I haven't yet.
  3789.  
  3790. 793
  3791. 00:50:30,188 --> 00:50:33,588
  3792. But I just...
  3793. I'm not sure if it's a classic.
  3794.  
  3795. 794
  3796. 00:50:35,108 --> 00:50:37,678
  3797. My name is Chris,
  3798. the singer of Coldplay.
  3799.  
  3800. 795
  3801. 00:50:37,848 --> 00:50:39,898
  3802. The multimillion platinum
  3803.  
  3804. 796
  3805. 00:50:40,068 --> 00:50:42,638
  3806. super-selling record of all time
  3807.  
  3808. 797
  3809. 00:50:42,808 --> 00:50:44,248
  3810. was Parachutes.
  3811.  
  3812. 798
  3813. 00:50:44,428 --> 00:50:45,818
  3814. And we need to do a follow-up.
  3815.  
  3816. 799
  3817. 00:50:45,988 --> 00:50:47,308
  3818. And in order to do
  3819. this follow-up,
  3820.  
  3821. 800
  3822. 00:50:47,468 --> 00:50:48,948
  3823. we need to work extremely hard.
  3824.  
  3825. 801
  3826. 00:50:49,128 --> 00:50:50,738
  3827. This is the nerve center
  3828. of Coldplay
  3829.  
  3830. 802
  3831. 00:50:50,908 --> 00:50:52,168
  3832. where everything gets done.
  3833.  
  3834. 803
  3835. 00:50:52,348 --> 00:50:54,438
  3836. Let's go in and
  3837. see who's doing what.
  3838.  
  3839. 804
  3840. 00:50:59,478 --> 00:51:01,088
  3841. Will.
  3842.  
  3843. 805
  3844. 00:51:01,268 --> 00:51:03,398
  3845. You're the drummer of Coldplay.
  3846. What are you doing?
  3847.  
  3848. 806
  3849. 00:51:03,568 --> 00:51:05,788
  3850. I'm just doing some work
  3851. on the new album.
  3852.  
  3853. 807
  3854. 00:51:13,628 --> 00:51:16,538
  3855. That has to be his favorite
  3856. sound, an orchestra tuning up.
  3857.  
  3858. 808
  3859. 00:51:21,718 --> 00:51:24,988
  3860. What's the verdict in there?
  3861. It seems like no one really...
  3862.  
  3863. 809
  3864. 00:51:25,158 --> 00:51:27,248
  3865. - We think it's great.
  3866. - Okay.
  3867.  
  3868. 810
  3869. 00:51:27,418 --> 00:51:29,664
  3870. - I mean, there's no room for mediocrity.
  3871. - No, absolutely not.
  3872.  
  3873. 811
  3874. 00:51:29,688 --> 00:51:31,794
  3875. - If it's shit, then tell me.
  3876. - It's fucking great.
  3877.  
  3878. 812
  3879. 00:51:31,818 --> 00:51:33,208
  3880. Keep going, man.
  3881.  
  3882. 813
  3883. 00:51:36,558 --> 00:51:39,438
  3884. But I'll say this even
  3885. if everyone hates it, you know,
  3886.  
  3887. 814
  3888. 00:51:39,608 --> 00:51:41,048
  3889. I wanted us to make a record
  3890.  
  3891. 815
  3892. 00:51:41,218 --> 00:51:43,268
  3893. that we could die happy
  3894. after we've made it,
  3895.  
  3896. 816
  3897. 00:51:43,438 --> 00:51:44,758
  3898. and that's what
  3899. I absolutely mean,
  3900.  
  3901. 817
  3902. 00:51:44,918 --> 00:51:47,098
  3903. and it sounds
  3904. incredibly pretentious,
  3905.  
  3906. 818
  3907. 00:51:47,268 --> 00:51:49,228
  3908. but there's no point
  3909. in being in a band
  3910.  
  3911. 819
  3912. 00:51:49,398 --> 00:51:52,098
  3913. unless you're trying to make
  3914. the best thing ever.
  3915.  
  3916. 820
  3917. 00:52:01,198 --> 00:52:03,458
  3918. The Phil-har-fucking-monic.
  3919.  
  3920. 821
  3921. 00:52:04,458 --> 00:52:06,118
  3922. The Phil Harvey-monic.
  3923.  
  3924. 822
  3925. 00:52:06,288 --> 00:52:08,264
  3926. - What?
  3927. - It sounds great.
  3928.  
  3929. 823
  3930. 00:52:08,288 --> 00:52:10,728
  3931. Just come in with attack,
  3932. as if you really love the band.
  3933.  
  3934. 824
  3935. 00:52:10,898 --> 00:52:12,988
  3936. Imagine.
  3937.  
  3938. 825
  3939. 00:52:13,858 --> 00:52:15,038
  3940. Here we go.
  3941.  
  3942. 826
  3943. 00:52:20,218 --> 00:52:22,778
  3944. I don't think we were satisfied
  3945. with the first album
  3946.  
  3947. 827
  3948. 00:52:22,958 --> 00:52:26,088
  3949. which made us work harder
  3950. for the second one, I think.
  3951.  
  3952. 828
  3953. 00:52:26,268 --> 00:52:28,878
  3954. There's no recipe
  3955. that we were trying to repeat.
  3956.  
  3957. 829
  3958. 00:52:30,918 --> 00:52:32,918
  3959. Oh, man, did you hear it?
  3960.  
  3961. 830
  3962. 00:52:33,098 --> 00:52:36,408
  3963. Did you hear Jonny's riff?
  3964. It's amazing. It's amazing.
  3965.  
  3966. 831
  3967. 00:52:36,578 --> 00:52:39,978
  3968. It's just Guy's bass playing that
  3969. lets the whole shop down. You know?
  3970.  
  3971. 832
  3972. 00:52:41,458 --> 00:52:44,498
  3973. 'Cause you spend all your time
  3974. videoing them, that's why.
  3975.  
  3976. 833
  3977. 00:52:45,498 --> 00:52:46,718
  3978. Guy, please, man.
  3979.  
  3980. 834
  3981. 00:52:47,978 --> 00:52:49,848
  3982. There was much more gusto
  3983. on this
  3984.  
  3985. 835
  3986. 00:52:50,028 --> 00:52:52,678
  3987. to just forget
  3988. your sort of personal, mental,
  3989.  
  3990. 836
  3991. 00:52:52,858 --> 00:52:54,638
  3992. or physical health.
  3993.  
  3994. 837
  3995. 00:52:54,818 --> 00:52:57,818
  3996. We just wouldn't stop until what
  3997. we were trying to do was right.
  3998.  
  3999. 838
  4000. 00:52:57,988 --> 00:53:00,258
  4001. We could get someone else.
  4002. Pino Palladino.
  4003.  
  4004. 839
  4005. 00:53:02,128 --> 00:53:04,168
  4006. Is there a downside?
  4007. I mean, you as...
  4008.  
  4009. 840
  4010. 00:53:04,348 --> 00:53:07,998
  4011. Anyone who says there's a downside
  4012. to what we do is talking utter shit.
  4013.  
  4014. 841
  4015. 00:53:08,178 --> 00:53:10,178
  4016. Of course we stress
  4017. and we worry about it
  4018.  
  4019. 842
  4020. 00:53:10,348 --> 00:53:12,308
  4021. and we put everything possible
  4022. into it
  4023.  
  4024. 843
  4025. 00:53:12,488 --> 00:53:15,048
  4026. at the expense of friendships
  4027. and everything.
  4028.  
  4029. 844
  4030. 00:53:17,358 --> 00:53:19,578
  4031. But there's no downside
  4032. to being in a band.
  4033.  
  4034. 845
  4035. 00:53:19,748 --> 00:53:22,838
  4036. Is there a downside
  4037. though to being the face of the band?
  4038.  
  4039. 846
  4040. 00:53:23,368 --> 00:53:25,408
  4041. No.
  4042.  
  4043. 847
  4044. 00:53:25,588 --> 00:53:28,718
  4045. Chris has done nothing but think
  4046. about the album for seven months,
  4047.  
  4048. 848
  4049. 00:53:28,888 --> 00:53:31,458
  4050. striving for
  4051. absolute perfection.
  4052.  
  4053. 849
  4054. 00:53:31,638 --> 00:53:33,068
  4055. He doesn't sleep really.
  4056.  
  4057. 850
  4058. 00:53:34,288 --> 00:53:36,288
  4059. He's been so incredibly focused,
  4060.  
  4061. 851
  4062. 00:53:36,468 --> 00:53:39,818
  4063. probably to the detriment of a
  4064. lot of other things in his life,
  4065.  
  4066. 852
  4067. 00:53:39,988 --> 00:53:43,728
  4068. whereas I find it quite easy
  4069. to just walk away and go home.
  4070.  
  4071. 853
  4072. 00:53:43,908 --> 00:53:47,274
  4073. Especially when we're mixing and you have to
  4074. listen to the same song 80 times in a day.
  4075.  
  4076. 854
  4077. 00:53:47,298 --> 00:53:49,908
  4078. By then, it all sounds
  4079. exactly the same.
  4080.  
  4081. 855
  4082. 00:53:53,788 --> 00:53:58,048
  4083. Well, Chris just went in one weekend,
  4084. he was in the studio on his own,
  4085.  
  4086. 856
  4087. 00:53:58,228 --> 00:54:01,538
  4088. and then we all came back on the
  4089. Monday and he goes, "I got this song."
  4090.  
  4091. 857
  4092. 00:54:01,708 --> 00:54:04,408
  4093. And we just recorded it
  4094. straight down as it was
  4095.  
  4096. 858
  4097. 00:54:04,578 --> 00:54:06,798
  4098. and we kept that original take.
  4099.  
  4100. 859
  4101. 00:54:08,278 --> 00:54:10,148
  4102. This is new. "Scientist."
  4103.  
  4104. 860
  4105. 00:54:51,148 --> 00:54:53,108
  4106. It was just all there
  4107. straightaway,
  4108.  
  4109. 861
  4110. 00:54:53,278 --> 00:54:56,018
  4111. in such an immediate,
  4112. exciting moment.
  4113.  
  4114. 862
  4115. 00:54:56,198 --> 00:54:57,718
  4116. Best moment
  4117. of the entire record for me
  4118.  
  4119. 863
  4120. 00:54:57,898 --> 00:54:59,378
  4121. was when we'd come back
  4122. to this song
  4123.  
  4124. 864
  4125. 00:54:59,548 --> 00:55:02,248
  4126. and I just heard
  4127. through a wall this riff,
  4128.  
  4129. 865
  4130. 00:55:02,418 --> 00:55:05,158
  4131. and that's my favorite
  4132. bit of music on the record.
  4133.  
  4134. 866
  4135. 00:55:39,978 --> 00:55:41,718
  4136. Hello, boys.
  4137.  
  4138. 867
  4139. 00:55:41,898 --> 00:55:44,768
  4140. Before we went to America
  4141. we just thought, "Really?"
  4142.  
  4143. 868
  4144. 00:55:44,938 --> 00:55:48,468
  4145. "Are we sure? No one's gonna
  4146. like us there."
  4147.  
  4148. 869
  4149. 00:55:48,638 --> 00:55:50,248
  4150. There was no false modesty here.
  4151.  
  4152. 870
  4153. 00:55:50,428 --> 00:55:55,038
  4154. I had no fucking clue how to
  4155. promote a record in the States.
  4156.  
  4157. 871
  4158. 00:55:55,208 --> 00:55:57,518
  4159. I was lucky enough
  4160. to meet Dave Holmes,
  4161.  
  4162. 872
  4163. 00:55:57,688 --> 00:55:59,698
  4164. and he came on
  4165. as the US manager.
  4166.  
  4167. 873
  4168. 00:55:59,868 --> 00:56:03,478
  4169. Very quickly he was just
  4170. the overall mastermind.
  4171.  
  4172. 874
  4173. 00:56:03,658 --> 00:56:06,398
  4174. I was a fan of their music
  4175. from the first couple of EPs,
  4176.  
  4177. 875
  4178. 00:56:06,568 --> 00:56:11,058
  4179. but I'll never forget the day I got
  4180. a master copy of A Rush of Blood.
  4181.  
  4182. 876
  4183. 00:56:11,228 --> 00:56:13,448
  4184. That's when I really
  4185. did believe,
  4186.  
  4187. 877
  4188. 00:56:13,618 --> 00:56:16,148
  4189. "Okay, these guys have the
  4190. ability to go to great heights."
  4191.  
  4192. 878
  4193. 00:56:22,328 --> 00:56:24,328
  4194. Dave very quickly
  4195. took the reins.
  4196.  
  4197. 879
  4198. 00:56:24,498 --> 00:56:27,028
  4199. Now he's just the big daddy.
  4200.  
  4201. 880
  4202. 00:56:27,198 --> 00:56:29,158
  4203. They were up for
  4204. whatever it took.
  4205.  
  4206. 881
  4207. 00:56:29,338 --> 00:56:30,598
  4208. Let's take America.
  4209.  
  4210. 882
  4211. 00:56:30,768 --> 00:56:34,248
  4212. But initially
  4213. the reaction wasn't great.
  4214.  
  4215. 883
  4216. 00:56:34,428 --> 00:56:36,988
  4217. Modern rock radio station
  4218. would put on a big festival,
  4219.  
  4220. 884
  4221. 00:56:37,168 --> 00:56:40,218
  4222. and we'd be sandwiched in between
  4223. some of these really heavy bands,
  4224.  
  4225. 885
  4226. 00:56:40,388 --> 00:56:41,828
  4227. and it was pretty demoralizing.
  4228.  
  4229. 886
  4230. 00:56:41,998 --> 00:56:44,218
  4231. We'd have a lot of projectiles
  4232. thrown at us.
  4233.  
  4234. 887
  4235. 00:56:44,388 --> 00:56:46,828
  4236. Has anyone here got our album?
  4237.  
  4238. 888
  4239. 00:56:46,998 --> 00:56:49,178
  4240. Right, flipping you.
  4241.  
  4242. 889
  4243. 00:56:49,358 --> 00:56:52,308
  4244. Nice job, great. One person.
  4245.  
  4246. 890
  4247. 00:56:52,488 --> 00:56:54,268
  4248. I remember we played
  4249. a radio show in DC
  4250.  
  4251. 891
  4252. 00:56:54,448 --> 00:56:58,408
  4253. and someone chucked a CD at
  4254. Chris and hit him in the head.
  4255.  
  4256. 892
  4257. 00:56:58,578 --> 00:57:01,298
  4258. And came back in the dressing room
  4259. and he went, "Thanks a lot, Dave."
  4260.  
  4261. 893
  4262. 00:57:04,758 --> 00:57:08,068
  4263. I felt awful. Here I was telling
  4264. them that this was a good idea,
  4265.  
  4266. 894
  4267. 00:57:08,238 --> 00:57:11,288
  4268. and I'm sure they were like, "What
  4269. the fuck are we doing this for?"
  4270.  
  4271. 895
  4272. 00:57:15,948 --> 00:57:19,428
  4273. I think at the time we felt completely
  4274. different to everybody else,
  4275.  
  4276. 896
  4277. 00:57:19,598 --> 00:57:24,218
  4278. but I think that actually worked
  4279. for us rather than against us.
  4280.  
  4281. 897
  4282. 00:57:24,388 --> 00:57:26,149
  4283. If somebody said a year
  4284. ago we were gonna do
  4285.  
  4286. 898
  4287. 00:57:26,174 --> 00:57:28,012
  4288. well in America, we
  4289. probably would've laughed,
  4290.  
  4291. 899
  4292. 00:57:28,088 --> 00:57:31,308
  4293. because it's not the kind of music you'd
  4294. associate with the American music scene.
  4295.  
  4296. 900
  4297. 00:57:31,478 --> 00:57:34,398
  4298. They've never said no
  4299. to hard work
  4300.  
  4301. 901
  4302. 00:57:34,568 --> 00:57:36,878
  4303. and I'm sure there were times
  4304. that they hated my guts,
  4305.  
  4306. 902
  4307. 00:57:37,048 --> 00:57:40,798
  4308. and I'm sure there were times when they
  4309. were really wondering if this was worth it.
  4310.  
  4311. 903
  4312. 00:57:40,968 --> 00:57:43,968
  4313. Is this actually gonna result in anything?
  4314. But it did.
  4315.  
  4316. 904
  4317. 00:57:44,148 --> 00:57:47,278
  4318. Plowing across America,
  4319. it felt difficult at the time,
  4320.  
  4321. 905
  4322. 00:57:47,458 --> 00:57:52,068
  4323. but looking back on it now they were,
  4324. in many ways, the most rewarding days,
  4325.  
  4326. 906
  4327. 00:57:52,238 --> 00:57:53,798
  4328. the days I look back
  4329. with most fondness.
  4330.  
  4331. 907
  4332. 00:57:53,938 --> 00:57:56,938
  4333. We were just kids, we didn't
  4334. know what was gonna happen,
  4335.  
  4336. 908
  4337. 00:57:57,118 --> 00:57:58,898
  4338. but we never gave up.
  4339.  
  4340. 909
  4341. 00:58:03,688 --> 00:58:06,078
  4342. So, American success,
  4343. does it matter to you guys?
  4344.  
  4345. 910
  4346. 00:58:06,258 --> 00:58:09,778
  4347. As long as everyone that buys
  4348. one of our records is into it,
  4349.  
  4350. 911
  4351. 00:58:09,958 --> 00:58:13,698
  4352. we don't care if it's 10 million
  4353. people or 30 million people,
  4354.  
  4355. 912
  4356. 00:58:13,868 --> 00:58:17,228
  4357. as long as
  4358. it's over five million people.
  4359.  
  4360. 913
  4361. 00:58:20,178 --> 00:58:22,318
  4362. I'm not gonna sit
  4363. and talk about any bad times
  4364.  
  4365. 914
  4366. 00:58:22,488 --> 00:58:24,148
  4367. because there wasn't
  4368. any bad times really,
  4369.  
  4370. 915
  4371. 00:58:24,318 --> 00:58:26,628
  4372. not in the grand scheme
  4373. of things.
  4374.  
  4375. 916
  4376. 00:58:26,798 --> 00:58:31,718
  4377. But it was weird, you know, when it crossed
  4378. over into that mainstream media thing.
  4379.  
  4380. 917
  4381. 00:58:31,888 --> 00:58:33,628
  4382. We started our band together
  4383.  
  4384. 918
  4385. 00:58:33,808 --> 00:58:37,028
  4386. and there was a democracy and
  4387. this kind of concept of equality,
  4388.  
  4389. 919
  4390. 00:58:37,198 --> 00:58:40,068
  4391. and then it was slightly strange
  4392. when the press focused on Chris
  4393.  
  4394. 920
  4395. 00:58:40,248 --> 00:58:42,598
  4396. and his relationship
  4397. with Gwyneth.
  4398.  
  4399. 921
  4400. 00:58:42,768 --> 00:58:47,168
  4401. I think for a brief moment it
  4402. felt like, "Well, what about us?"
  4403.  
  4404. 922
  4405. 00:58:47,338 --> 00:58:52,088
  4406. But I think it's probably been
  4407. pretty awful for him at times.
  4408.  
  4409. 923
  4410. 00:58:52,258 --> 00:58:54,778
  4411. As amusing
  4412. as it might be at first,
  4413.  
  4414. 924
  4415. 00:58:54,958 --> 00:58:59,488
  4416. after a while, it can feel pretty
  4417. intrusive, pretty claustrophobic.
  4418.  
  4419. 925
  4420. 00:58:59,658 --> 00:59:01,414
  4421. The thing that you've
  4422. dreamt of your whole life
  4423.  
  4424. 926
  4425. 00:59:01,438 --> 00:59:04,618
  4426. has turned out to not be
  4427. quite as happy and as innocent
  4428.  
  4429. 927
  4430. 00:59:04,788 --> 00:59:06,928
  4431. as it might have felt.
  4432.  
  4433. 928
  4434. 00:59:08,668 --> 00:59:12,408
  4435. I always wanted to be in the NME.
  4436. That's all I really cared about.
  4437.  
  4438. 929
  4439. 00:59:12,588 --> 00:59:14,018
  4440. I think we all did.
  4441.  
  4442. 930
  4443. 00:59:14,198 --> 00:59:15,878
  4444. I never really wanted
  4445. any other recognition
  4446.  
  4447. 931
  4448. 00:59:16,018 --> 00:59:18,718
  4449. other than what we were doing
  4450. on a musical level.
  4451.  
  4452. 932
  4453. 00:59:18,898 --> 00:59:21,028
  4454. But tabloid attention,
  4455. as awful as it is,
  4456.  
  4457. 933
  4458. 00:59:21,198 --> 00:59:25,028
  4459. it's a sign that you're
  4460. sort of doing something right.
  4461.  
  4462. 934
  4463. 00:59:31,168 --> 00:59:33,908
  4464. When I get recognized,
  4465. I love it. I do.
  4466.  
  4467. 935
  4468. 00:59:35,348 --> 00:59:37,088
  4469. You know? That's why
  4470. we're at a cool level.
  4471.  
  4472. 936
  4473. 00:59:37,258 --> 00:59:39,788
  4474. Because the novelty
  4475. hasn't worn off
  4476.  
  4477. 937
  4478. 00:59:39,958 --> 00:59:41,528
  4479. and, you know...
  4480.  
  4481. 938
  4482. 00:59:43,308 --> 00:59:45,244
  4483. It's really exciting, 'cause the
  4484. only people that really recognize us
  4485.  
  4486. 939
  4487. 00:59:45,268 --> 00:59:47,048
  4488. are people who actually
  4489. like our record.
  4490.  
  4491. 940
  4492. 00:59:47,228 --> 00:59:49,068
  4493. I don't know how people
  4494. like Madonna or someone
  4495.  
  4496. 941
  4497. 00:59:49,138 --> 00:59:52,228
  4498. could handle that level
  4499. of fame because...
  4500.  
  4501. 942
  4502. 00:59:52,408 --> 00:59:54,838
  4503. you do have to just become
  4504. a recluse, I reckon.
  4505.  
  4506. 943
  4507. 01:00:06,548 --> 01:00:08,508
  4508. Okay, mate, you go first.
  4509.  
  4510. 944
  4511. 01:00:40,018 --> 01:00:42,198
  4512. Sorry, I didn't...
  4513. I'm sorry. I didn't...
  4514.  
  4515. 945
  4516. 01:01:34,598 --> 01:01:36,688
  4517. Music is just everywhere.
  4518.  
  4519. 946
  4520. 01:01:36,858 --> 01:01:38,558
  4521. The whole universe is music.
  4522.  
  4523. 947
  4524. 01:01:38,728 --> 01:01:42,128
  4525. You can just walk down the
  4526. street, it's a kind of music.
  4527.  
  4528. 948
  4529. 01:01:42,298 --> 01:01:45,608
  4530. There's always something
  4531. in the day that's inspiring.
  4532.  
  4533. 949
  4534. 01:01:50,348 --> 01:01:52,138
  4535. When we first started recording,
  4536.  
  4537. 950
  4538. 01:01:52,308 --> 01:01:54,698
  4539. Chris had a little
  4540. four-track cassette machine
  4541.  
  4542. 951
  4543. 01:01:54,878 --> 01:01:57,098
  4544. and that's how
  4545. we put things down.
  4546.  
  4547. 952
  4548. 01:01:57,268 --> 01:02:00,618
  4549. It's before we had mobile phones and
  4550. laptops and stuff to record on.
  4551.  
  4552. 953
  4553. 01:02:07,538 --> 01:02:09,018
  4554. I'll show you my book.
  4555.  
  4556. 954
  4557. 01:02:11,148 --> 01:02:12,808
  4558. Huh? Huh?
  4559.  
  4560. 955
  4561. 01:02:14,108 --> 01:02:16,898
  4562. Look at that. See? Huh?
  4563.  
  4564. 956
  4565. 01:02:17,068 --> 01:02:21,028
  4566. If I should lose that, we'd be...
  4567. What would we do?
  4568.  
  4569. 957
  4570. 01:02:21,208 --> 01:02:23,728
  4571. - What's in the book?
  4572. - Get Travis to give us some songs.
  4573.  
  4574. 958
  4575. 01:02:25,038 --> 01:02:26,428
  4576. Just girls' numbers.
  4577.  
  4578. 959
  4579. 01:02:26,608 --> 01:02:29,518
  4580. And designs for stage costumes.
  4581.  
  4582. 960
  4583. 01:02:32,388 --> 01:02:35,878
  4584. My way of making sense of the day
  4585. is to sit down and sing about it.
  4586.  
  4587. 961
  4588. 01:02:36,048 --> 01:02:38,398
  4589. I suppose
  4590. it's like writing a diary.
  4591.  
  4592. 962
  4593. 01:02:40,788 --> 01:02:42,798
  4594. No one really knows
  4595. where songs come from.
  4596.  
  4597. 963
  4598. 01:02:42,968 --> 01:02:44,748
  4599. You don't know how,
  4600. where, or why,
  4601.  
  4602. 964
  4603. 01:02:44,928 --> 01:02:46,968
  4604. or whether any more will come.
  4605.  
  4606. 965
  4607. 01:02:51,108 --> 01:02:54,808
  4608. All of our biggest ones
  4609. take 10 minutes,
  4610.  
  4611. 966
  4612. 01:02:54,978 --> 01:02:59,588
  4613. but you only get them by sitting for
  4614. hours and hours on the other ones,
  4615.  
  4616. 967
  4617. 01:02:59,768 --> 01:03:03,898
  4618. and then suddenly one comes
  4619. through and you just receive it.
  4620.  
  4621. 968
  4622. 01:03:08,818 --> 01:03:10,418
  4623. You might take it
  4624. to Jonny, Will and Guy,
  4625.  
  4626. 969
  4627. 01:03:10,468 --> 01:03:13,128
  4628. and they add their bits
  4629. and it's like a production line.
  4630.  
  4631. 970
  4632. 01:03:14,998 --> 01:03:18,958
  4633. And sometimes they say, okay,
  4634. and sometimes they say, no way.
  4635.  
  4636. 971
  4637. 01:03:19,138 --> 01:03:21,878
  4638. It's the "okay-no way" spectrum.
  4639.  
  4640. 972
  4641. 01:03:22,048 --> 01:03:24,138
  4642. When we hear a new song,
  4643.  
  4644. 973
  4645. 01:03:24,308 --> 01:03:27,268
  4646. Chris and I have a tendency
  4647. to be relentlessly positive.
  4648.  
  4649. 974
  4650. 01:03:27,448 --> 01:03:29,098
  4651. They're always like,
  4652.  
  4653. 975
  4654. 01:03:29,278 --> 01:03:31,384
  4655. "Yeah, I like it, yes.
  4656. I think it could be good. Yeah."
  4657.  
  4658. 976
  4659. 01:03:31,408 --> 01:03:34,588
  4660. And me and Guy
  4661. are sat, sort of fuming, saying,
  4662.  
  4663. 977
  4664. 01:03:34,758 --> 01:03:38,238
  4665. "Boy, this is a fucking waste of time.
  4666. Let's get on to the next one."
  4667.  
  4668. 978
  4669. 01:03:38,418 --> 01:03:42,328
  4670. It's difficult. If Chris comes in
  4671. with a song, if I'm just not into it,
  4672.  
  4673. 979
  4674. 01:03:42,508 --> 01:03:45,418
  4675. that is the thing
  4676. that I just hate the most.
  4677.  
  4678. 980
  4679. 01:03:45,598 --> 01:03:48,688
  4680. You're putting yourself in the
  4681. firing line for somebody to say,
  4682.  
  4683. 981
  4684. 01:03:48,858 --> 01:03:51,078
  4685. "Well, you go and write
  4686. a better one then."
  4687.  
  4688. 982
  4689. 01:03:51,248 --> 01:03:54,778
  4690. You've got the life or death of the song in
  4691. your hands, 'cause they're quite sensitive.
  4692.  
  4693. 983
  4694. 01:03:54,948 --> 01:03:58,568
  4695. But any kind of inkling that it's not
  4696. the best song they've ever written,
  4697.  
  4698. 984
  4699. 01:03:58,738 --> 01:04:00,478
  4700. means it tends
  4701. to get chucked out.
  4702.  
  4703. 985
  4704. 01:04:00,658 --> 01:04:03,528
  4705. I'd say my hit ratio
  4706. within the group
  4707.  
  4708. 986
  4709. 01:04:03,698 --> 01:04:06,098
  4710. is probably one in ten maybe.
  4711.  
  4712. 987
  4713. 01:04:06,268 --> 01:04:09,268
  4714. Any one of those fucking cunts
  4715. can veto it.
  4716.  
  4717. 988
  4718. 01:04:09,448 --> 01:04:11,618
  4719. It is heartbreaking,
  4720. but they're always right.
  4721.  
  4722. 989
  4723. 01:04:11,798 --> 01:04:13,678
  4724. I know that once we put a song
  4725. out in the world,
  4726.  
  4727. 990
  4728. 01:04:13,708 --> 01:04:15,684
  4729. we're gonna have lots of people
  4730. who say it's not very good,
  4731.  
  4732. 991
  4733. 01:04:15,708 --> 01:04:17,564
  4734. so it's probably best that
  4735. the five of us at least agree.
  4736.  
  4737. 992
  4738. 01:04:17,588 --> 01:04:20,068
  4739. We can't have one of us say,
  4740. "I told you it was shit."

  4833. 1013
  4834. 01:06:22,668 --> 01:06:24,508

  4836. being Jonny in Coldplay?
  4837.  
  4838. 1014
  4839. 01:06:24,668 --> 01:06:28,538

  4847. 1016
  4848. 01:06:31,458 --> 01:06:34,238

  4852. 1017
  4853. 01:06:34,418 --> 01:06:37,248

  4857. 1018
  4858. 01:06:37,418 --> 01:06:40,378

  4882. but with no reason to be,
  4883.  
  4884. 1024
  4885. 01:06:53,518 --> 01:06:56,048

  4889. 1025
  4890. 01:06:56,218 --> 01:06:58,178

  4894. 1026
  4895. 01:06:58,348 --> 01:07:01,788

  4908. 1029
  4909. 01:07:07,798 --> 01:07:09,538

  4913. 1030
  4914. 01:07:09,708 --> 01:07:11,408
  4915. We couldn't have two of us
  4916. like Chris,
  4917.  
  4918. 1031
  4919. 01:07:11,588 --> 01:07:14,328
  4920. and we couldn't have two of us
  4921. like me. It just wouldn't work.
  4922.  
  4923. 1032
  4924. 01:07:14,498 --> 01:07:16,338
  4925. It's gonna be great
  4926. when we record it properly.
  4927.  
  4928. 1033
  4929. 01:07:18,328 --> 01:07:19,848
  4930. The songwriting
  4931. has changed, I think.
  4932.  
  4933. 1034
  4934. 01:07:20,028 --> 01:07:21,548
  4935. These days it depends
  4936. who's there,
  4937.  
  4938. 1035
  4939. 01:07:21,728 --> 01:07:23,608
  4940. because we live in different
  4941. parts of the world.
  4942.  
  4943. 1036
  4944. 01:07:23,678 --> 01:07:26,168
  4945. Did it get anything in there?
  4946.  
  4947. 1037
  4948. 01:07:26,338 --> 01:07:28,428
  4949. When we started recording
  4950. A Head Full of Dreams,
  4951.  
  4952. 1038
  4953. 01:07:28,598 --> 01:07:30,648
  4954. Guy, Will, and I
  4955. were in the studio in London,
  4956.  
  4957. 1039
  4958. 01:07:30,818 --> 01:07:32,778
  4959. working on a track
  4960. which was "Legends,"
  4961.  
  4962. 1040
  4963. 01:07:32,948 --> 01:07:35,298
  4964. and we could never quite
  4965. get it right.
  4966.  
  4967. 1041
  4968. 01:07:35,478 --> 01:07:37,698
  4969. I went to LA,
  4970. worked in Chris's house,
  4971.  
  4972. 1042
  4973. 01:07:37,868 --> 01:07:39,698
  4974. trying to get
  4975. a good guitar riff for it.
  4976.  
  4977. 1043
  4978. 01:07:39,868 --> 01:07:42,958
  4979. Just sort of
  4980. fumbling around in the dark.
  4981.  
  4982. 1044
  4983. 01:07:43,138 --> 01:07:46,878
  4984. He started playing
  4985. this melody, like, slow.
  4986.  
  4987. 1045
  4988. 01:07:53,798 --> 01:07:55,408
  4989. His guitar just gets me going.
  4990.  
  4991. 1046
  4992. 01:07:55,588 --> 01:07:58,108
  4993. I was like, there's something
  4994. amazing about that.
  4995.  
  4996. 1047
  4997. 01:07:58,278 --> 01:08:01,398
  4998. You could take the rest of the song away
  4999. and I don't think anyone would notice.
  5000.  
  5001. 1048
  5002. 01:08:05,678 --> 01:08:06,988
  5003. And that's what happened.
  5004.  
  5005. 1049
  5006. 01:08:19,698 --> 01:08:23,218
  5007. Okay, trust me everybody.
  5008. This is gonna be great.
  5009.  
  5010. 1050
  5011. 01:08:26,138 --> 01:08:28,308
  5012. Everybody go low.
  5013.  
  5014. 1051
  5015. 01:08:28,488 --> 01:08:30,268
  5016. Everybody get down. Shh!
  5017.  
  5018. 1052
  5019. 01:08:30,448 --> 01:08:32,578
  5020. Everybody go low.
  5021.  
  5022. 1053
  5023. 01:08:32,748 --> 01:08:34,358
  5024. Stay low.
  5025.  
  5026. 1054
  5027. 01:08:35,498 --> 01:08:38,278
  5028. One, two, one, two...
  5029.  
  5030. 1055
  5031. 01:09:06,218 --> 01:09:08,438
  5032. Thank you, everybody.
  5033.  
  5034. 1056
  5035. 01:09:08,618 --> 01:09:12,748
  5036. Okay, hands up, who wants "Adventure
  5037. Of A Lifetime" to be our first single?
  5038.  
  5039. 1057
  5040. 01:09:12,918 --> 01:09:16,488
  5041. Our friendship's really changed,
  5042. definitely, from the early days.
  5043.  
  5044. 1058
  5045. 01:09:16,668 --> 01:09:18,888
  5046. Okay, that's great.
  5047. So, we agree.
  5048.  
  5049. 1059
  5050. 01:09:19,058 --> 01:09:22,238
  5051. It's very free communication.
  5052. We kind of talk every day.
  5053.  
  5054. 1060
  5055. 01:09:22,408 --> 01:09:25,848
  5056. But, yeah, that can involve
  5057. a lot of locking of horns.
  5058.  
  5059. 1061
  5060. 01:09:33,858 --> 01:09:36,988
  5061. Often the atmosphere in the
  5062. studio is very tense, yeah.
  5063.  
  5064. 1062
  5065. 01:09:37,168 --> 01:09:40,258
  5066. And there's lots of laughter,
  5067. but it can get quite heavy.
  5068.  
  5069. 1063
  5070. 01:09:47,088 --> 01:09:52,568
  5071. Sometimes I get called in and there's,
  5072. like, stony faces and no one's speaking,
  5073.  
  5074. 1064
  5075. 01:09:52,748 --> 01:09:54,764
  5076. and I can tell they're in
  5077. the middle of some argument.
  5078.  
  5079. 1065
  5080. 01:09:54,788 --> 01:09:58,058
  5081. That's the bit of my job
  5082. that's hard.
  5083.  
  5084. 1066
  5085. 01:09:59,968 --> 01:10:02,058
  5086. Hey, Phil?
  5087.  
  5088. 1067
  5089. 01:10:03,318 --> 01:10:05,588
  5090. We've had a terrible fight.
  5091.  
  5092. 1068
  5093. 01:10:06,458 --> 01:10:08,538
  5094. We had a terrible fight.
  5095.  
  5096. 1069
  5097. 01:10:08,718 --> 01:10:11,214
  5098. Sometimes I look back and I
  5099. don't think I've changed at all.
  5100.  
  5101. 1070
  5102. 01:10:11,238 --> 01:10:14,158
  5103. I just don't. Not in the way
  5104. that Chris has changed.
  5105.  
  5106. 1071
  5107. 01:10:14,328 --> 01:10:15,768
  5108. He's evolved so much
  5109. as a person.
  5110.  
  5111. 1072
  5112. 01:10:15,938 --> 01:10:18,004
  5113. But then there's loads of things
  5114. that haven't changed,
  5115.  
  5116. 1073
  5117. 01:10:18,028 --> 01:10:20,558
  5118. like his ability to make me
  5119. laugh like no one else.
  5120.  
  5121. 1074
  5122. 01:10:20,728 --> 01:10:22,648
  5123. If you look at this Venn
  5124. diagram that I'm doing,
  5125.  
  5126. 1075
  5127. 01:10:22,818 --> 01:10:26,608
  5128. it splits the set into
  5129. old Coldplay songs,
  5130.  
  5131. 1076
  5132. 01:10:26,778 --> 01:10:28,428
  5133. new Coldplay songs.
  5134.  
  5135. 1077
  5136. 01:10:28,608 --> 01:10:30,454
  5137. What do you think about
  5138. singles to album track ratio?
  5139.  
  5140. 1078
  5141. 01:10:30,478 --> 01:10:34,218
  5142. Well, at the moment,
  5143. it's like a 60/40 split of new.
  5144.  
  5145. 1079
  5146. 01:10:34,398 --> 01:10:38,748
  5147. But if you minus the metric we took from
  5148. the first quarter against merch sales,
  5149.  
  5150. 1080
  5151. 01:10:38,918 --> 01:10:43,448
  5152. it's the basic fractal
  5153. that we learnt from REM and U2,
  5154.  
  5155. 1081
  5156. 01:10:43,618 --> 01:10:46,368
  5157. who we now refer to as RE2,
  5158.  
  5159. 1082
  5160. 01:10:46,538 --> 01:10:48,238
  5161. the band
  5162. that we're aspiring to be,
  5163.  
  5164. 1083
  5165. 01:10:48,408 --> 01:10:51,628
  5166. plus Radiohead and Beyoncé
  5167. and Jay-Z at the same time,
  5168.  
  5169. 1084
  5170. 01:10:51,808 --> 01:10:53,288
  5171. moving through to Young Thug.
  5172.  
  5173. 1085
  5174. 01:10:53,458 --> 01:10:56,548
  5175. That leaves us with this,
  5176. which is our set list.
  5177.  
  5178. 1086
  5179. 01:10:57,458 --> 01:10:59,068
  5180. There's definite pros and cons
  5181.  
  5182. 1087
  5183. 01:10:59,248 --> 01:11:01,378
  5184. to working with someone
  5185. that you're that close with.
  5186.  
  5187. 1088
  5188. 01:11:01,548 --> 01:11:04,248
  5189. Chris would be the first
  5190. to say that as well.
  5191.  
  5192. 1089
  5193. 01:11:04,428 --> 01:11:07,518
  5194. It can get a bit messy,
  5195. definitely.
  5196.  
  5197. 1090
  5198. 01:11:10,168 --> 01:11:14,218
  5199. Well, I've left the band
  5200. probably two times, I think.
  5201.  
  5202. 1091
  5203. 01:11:14,388 --> 01:11:18,568
  5204. The first time was 'cause I got really ill.
  5205. It was basically exhaustion.
  5206.  
  5207. 1092
  5208. 01:11:18,748 --> 01:11:20,958
  5209. I'll always remember. It was
  5210. the day of the Brit Awards.
  5211.  
  5212. 1093
  5213. 01:11:21,138 --> 01:11:22,918
  5214. The Best British Group.
  5215.  
  5216. 1094
  5217. 01:11:23,098 --> 01:11:25,398
  5218. - Yes!
  5219. - Coldplay.
  5220.  
  5221. 1095
  5222. 01:11:25,578 --> 01:11:28,148
  5223. We won Best Band and Best Album
  5224.  
  5225. 1096
  5226. 01:11:28,318 --> 01:11:29,968
  5227. and I'd had
  5228. this feeling inside me
  5229.  
  5230. 1097
  5231. 01:11:30,148 --> 01:11:32,448
  5232. that it should be
  5233. the best day of my life,
  5234.  
  5235. 1098
  5236. 01:11:32,628 --> 01:11:36,068
  5237. but I just felt
  5238. so totally exhausted.
  5239.  
  5240. 1099
  5241. 01:11:36,238 --> 01:11:38,588
  5242. It was not a happy memory
  5243. at all.
  5244.  
  5245. 1100
  5246. 01:11:38,768 --> 01:11:41,678
  5247. This is the weirdest thing
  5248. that's ever happened to us.
  5249.  
  5250. 1101
  5251. 01:11:41,858 --> 01:11:45,638
  5252. And we're really made up.
  5253. So thank you very much.
  5254.  
  5255. 1102
  5256. 01:11:45,818 --> 01:11:47,428
  5257. But then I came back
  5258.  
  5259. 1103
  5260. 01:11:47,598 --> 01:11:49,248
  5261. and we made
  5262. A Rush of Blood to the Head.
  5263.  
  5264. 1104
  5265. 01:11:49,428 --> 01:11:53,388
  5266. That was even more stressful
  5267. than the first one
  5268.  
  5269. 1105
  5270. 01:11:53,558 --> 01:11:57,128
  5271. and my relationship with Chris
  5272. in particular was quite strained
  5273.  
  5274. 1106
  5275. 01:11:57,308 --> 01:11:59,178
  5276. and something had to give.
  5277.  
  5278. 1107
  5279. 01:12:07,838 --> 01:12:12,578
  5280. I think the dynamic between singer
  5281. and manager is a specific one,
  5282.  
  5283. 1108
  5284. 01:12:12,758 --> 01:12:15,498
  5285. and it just didn't really
  5286. suit our friendship.
  5287.  
  5288. 1109
  5289. 01:12:15,668 --> 01:12:17,588
  5290. So I quit.
  5291.  
  5292. 1110
  5293. 01:12:18,368 --> 01:12:20,108
  5294. Phil got a bit burnt out
  5295.  
  5296. 1111
  5297. 01:12:20,288 --> 01:12:22,898
  5298. and wanted to do
  5299. something different.
  5300.  
  5301. 1112
  5302. 01:12:23,068 --> 01:12:25,938
  5303. He moved almost as far away
  5304. from us as he possibly could
  5305.  
  5306. 1113
  5307. 01:12:26,118 --> 01:12:29,418
  5308. by going to South America
  5309. and then Australia.
  5310.  
  5311. 1114
  5312. 01:12:29,598 --> 01:12:32,078
  5313. I think he was trying
  5314. to tell us something.
  5315.  
  5316. 1115
  5317. 01:12:32,248 --> 01:12:33,908
  5318. He wasn't with us for one album,
  5319.  
  5320. 1116
  5321. 01:12:34,078 --> 01:12:36,818
  5322. and that was
  5323. when we sorely missed him.
  5324.  
  5325. 1117
  5326. 01:12:36,998 --> 01:12:41,308
  5327. We made decisions that weren't
  5328. as good as they could've been.
  5329.  
  5330. 1118
  5331. 01:12:41,478 --> 01:12:43,118
  5332. We seem to sort of give up
  5333. before we've...
  5334.  
  5335. 1119
  5336. 01:12:43,258 --> 01:12:44,788
  5337. No, it's just...
  5338. Does that sound right?
  5339.  
  5340. 1120
  5341. 01:12:44,958 --> 01:12:46,828
  5342. I don't understand.
  5343. Is that the right pattern?
  5344.  
  5345. 1121
  5346. 01:12:47,008 --> 01:12:50,098
  5347. I don't think we were
  5348. very functional in that period.
  5349.  
  5350. 1122
  5351. 01:12:50,268 --> 01:12:52,798
  5352. I think we lost our way
  5353. a bit, yes.
  5354.  
  5355. 1123
  5356. 01:12:52,968 --> 01:12:54,928
  5357. I think we felt a lot
  5358. of pressure
  5359.  
  5360. 1124
  5361. 01:12:55,098 --> 01:12:57,148
  5362. to make some kind
  5363. of grand album.
  5364.  
  5365. 1125
  5366. 01:12:57,318 --> 01:12:59,498
  5367. There were strange headlines
  5368. in the press
  5369.  
  5370. 1126
  5371. 01:12:59,668 --> 01:13:01,978
  5372. about the EMI share price
  5373. and all of that stuff.
  5374.  
  5375. 1127
  5376. 01:13:02,148 --> 01:13:04,628
  5377. We didn't even know what
  5378. a share price was back then.
  5379.  
  5380. 1128
  5381. 01:13:04,808 --> 01:13:08,718
  5382. We spent day after day after day
  5383. of getting nowhere.
  5384.  
  5385. 1129
  5386. 01:13:08,898 --> 01:13:11,208
  5387. It came out in addictions
  5388. and it came out in tension,
  5389.  
  5390. 1130
  5391. 01:13:11,378 --> 01:13:13,858
  5392. and at the time,
  5393. it was a real struggle.
  5394.  
  5395. 1131
  5396. 01:13:14,028 --> 01:13:17,208
  5397. One year later and we've got
  5398. precisely nothing finished.
  5399.  
  5400. 1132
  5401. 01:13:18,948 --> 01:13:21,348
  5402. What a fucking cunt. Bollocks!
  5403.  
  5404. 1133
  5405. 01:13:22,738 --> 01:13:25,048
  5406. And you don't film
  5407. any of the arguments.
  5408.  
  5409. 1134
  5410. 01:13:25,218 --> 01:13:26,698
  5411. There was a lot of questioning,
  5412.  
  5413. 1135
  5414. 01:13:26,868 --> 01:13:28,628
  5415. like, "Should we do this,
  5416. should we do that?"
  5417.  
  5418. 1136
  5419. 01:13:28,738 --> 01:13:30,268
  5420. So, it's shite.
  5421.  
  5422. 1137
  5423. 01:13:32,308 --> 01:13:34,318
  5424. We have to start
  5425. all of it again.
  5426.  
  5427. 1138
  5428. 01:13:35,318 --> 01:13:38,228
  5429. We've lost the plot!
  5430.  
  5431. 1139
  5432. 01:13:38,408 --> 01:13:41,018
  5433. I was so worried about
  5434. what everyone else thought.
  5435.  
  5436. 1140
  5437. 01:13:41,188 --> 01:13:43,278
  5438. We just totally spun out,
  5439. you know.
  5440.  
  5441. 1141
  5442. 01:13:43,458 --> 01:13:45,018
  5443. So, what do you want me
  5444. to do, then?
  5445.  
  5446. 1142
  5447. 01:13:45,198 --> 01:13:46,848
  5448. In general,
  5449. the bigger you get as a band,
  5450.  
  5451. 1143
  5452. 01:13:47,018 --> 01:13:50,548
  5453. all the kind of machinery around
  5454. you gets bigger and bigger
  5455.  
  5456. 1144
  5457. 01:13:50,718 --> 01:13:52,318
  5458. and there's more things
  5459. to get in the way
  5460.  
  5461. 1145
  5462. 01:13:52,378 --> 01:13:55,248
  5463. of just four people playing
  5464. music together.
  5465.  
  5466. 1146
  5467. 01:14:00,118 --> 01:14:01,858
  5468. No, no, no.
  5469.  
  5470. 1147
  5471. 01:14:02,038 --> 01:14:05,298
  5472. You've gotta do that... thing for that verse.
  5473.  
  5474. 1148
  5475. 01:14:05,478 --> 01:14:07,648
  5476. That was the first time
  5477. we'd been in that situation
  5478.  
  5479. 1149
  5480. 01:14:07,828 --> 01:14:09,918
  5481. and didn't know how to deal with
  5482. all of that stuff.
  5483.  
  5484. 1150
  5485. 01:14:10,088 --> 01:14:12,528
  5486. If Phil had been around,
  5487. it might have been different.
  5488.  
  5489. 1151
  5490. 01:14:12,698 --> 01:14:14,698
  5491. That's just normal, is it?
  5492.  
  5493. 1152
  5494. 01:14:56,878 --> 01:15:00,308
  5495. You don't let me sing
  5496. any nouns or things.
  5497.  
  5498. 1153
  5499. 01:15:01,748 --> 01:15:04,798
  5500. Like anything that's a thing
  5501. is immediately banned.
  5502.  
  5503. 1154
  5504. 01:15:08,838 --> 01:15:11,328
  5505. And freedom. You hate
  5506. riffs, freedom and nouns.
  5507.  
  5508. 1155
  5509. 01:15:21,198 --> 01:15:24,858
  5510. I think the process was probably the least
  5511. enjoyable of all our records, definitely.
  5512.  
  5513. 1156
  5514. 01:15:25,028 --> 01:15:27,988
  5515. We were going through
  5516. some weird shit that time.
  5517.  
  5518. 1157
  5519. 01:15:28,168 --> 01:15:29,468
  5520. But Dave was amazing,
  5521.  
  5522. 1158
  5523. 01:15:29,648 --> 01:15:31,388
  5524. and luckily
  5525. we had the song "Fix You"
  5526.  
  5527. 1159
  5528. 01:15:31,558 --> 01:15:33,298
  5529. to get us through that period.
  5530.  
  5531. 1160
  5532. 01:15:34,568 --> 01:15:37,438
  5533. What's that you sing at the end?
  5534. What are the lyrics?
  5535.  
  5536. 1161
  5537. 01:15:37,608 --> 01:15:39,048
  5538. Tears stream down your face
  5539.  
  5540. 1162
  5541. 01:15:39,218 --> 01:15:41,788
  5542. when you lose something
  5543. you can't replace.
  5544.  
  5545. 1163
  5546. 01:15:41,958 --> 01:15:45,228
  5547. Tears stream down your face
  5548. and I, I, I, I, I...
  5549.  
  5550. 1164
  5551. 01:15:45,398 --> 01:15:46,668
  5552. Right.
  5553.  
  5554. 1165
  5555. 01:15:48,318 --> 01:15:50,098
  5556. - Yeah.
  5557. - Is that shit?
  5558.  
  5559. 1166
  5560. 01:15:50,278 --> 01:15:51,708
  5561. No, it sounds good.
  5562.  
  5563. 1167
  5564. 01:15:51,888 --> 01:15:53,758
  5565. I just was wondering
  5566. if it could be sort of
  5567.  
  5568. 1168
  5569. 01:15:53,928 --> 01:15:56,538
  5570. made into something
  5571. which makes a bit more sense.
  5572.  
  5573. 1169
  5574. 01:15:57,808 --> 01:15:59,628
  5575. Can you take a tiny bit
  5576. of reverb off?
  5577.  
  5578. 1170
  5579. 01:16:00,328 --> 01:16:01,808
  5580. That's cool, thanks.
  5581.  
  5582. 1171
  5583. 01:18:13,248 --> 01:18:15,508
  5584. That's the most self-conscious
  5585. I've ever been
  5586.  
  5587. 1172
  5588. 01:18:15,678 --> 01:18:18,118
  5589. about people
  5590. not liking what we were doing
  5591.  
  5592. 1173
  5593. 01:18:18,288 --> 01:18:20,648
  5594. because I wasn't really sure
  5595. if I liked it.
  5596.  
  5597. 1174
  5598. 01:18:20,818 --> 01:18:23,298
  5599. It was a strange period of time.
  5600.  
  5601. 1175
  5602. 01:18:28,348 --> 01:18:31,698
  5603. When you read something
  5604. that is critical,
  5605.  
  5606. 1176
  5607. 01:18:31,868 --> 01:18:33,308
  5608. you always give it
  5609. much more weight
  5610.  
  5611. 1177
  5612. 01:18:33,478 --> 01:18:36,138
  5613. than anything you read
  5614. that's kind.
  5615.  
  5616. 1178
  5617. 01:18:36,308 --> 01:18:38,968
  5618. And they can write
  5619. a whole article that's nice
  5620.  
  5621. 1179
  5622. 01:18:39,138 --> 01:18:41,318
  5623. and just have one line
  5624. that's a bit shitty,
  5625.  
  5626. 1180
  5627. 01:18:41,488 --> 01:18:44,058
  5628. and that's the only line
  5629. you'll remember.
  5630.  
  5631. 1181
  5632. 01:18:44,228 --> 01:18:46,408
  5633. Alan McGee of Creation Records
  5634.  
  5635. 1182
  5636. 01:18:46,578 --> 01:18:50,938
  5637. has come out and said that your
  5638. music was bed wetters' music.
  5639.  
  5640. 1183
  5641. 01:18:51,108 --> 01:18:53,238
  5642. How did you feel about that?
  5643. What was your response?
  5644.  
  5645. 1184
  5646. 01:18:53,418 --> 01:18:55,418
  5647. We wet our beds.
  5648.  
  5649. 1185
  5650. 01:18:57,118 --> 01:18:59,068
  5651. You can't please everybody,
  5652. right?
  5653.  
  5654. 1186
  5655. 01:18:59,248 --> 01:19:01,858
  5656. If that's what you're chasing
  5657. you're just gonna fail,
  5658.  
  5659. 1187
  5660. 01:19:02,028 --> 01:19:04,428
  5661. because it's just not possible.
  5662.  
  5663. 1188
  5664. 01:19:09,478 --> 01:19:10,738
  5665. Shucks.
  5666.  
  5667. 1189
  5668. 01:19:21,098 --> 01:19:22,748
  5669. It's okay. I get it.
  5670.  
  5671. 1190
  5672. 01:19:22,918 --> 01:19:25,708
  5673. I think it's important
  5674. to have figures of ridicule.
  5675.  
  5676. 1191
  5677. 01:19:25,878 --> 01:19:27,538
  5678. I don't mind being one of them.
  5679.  
  5680. 1192
  5681. 01:19:27,708 --> 01:19:29,644
  5682. The only time it's awkward
  5683. is if you bump into someone
  5684.  
  5685. 1193
  5686. 01:19:29,668 --> 01:19:32,058
  5687. who's made a joke about you.
  5688.  
  5689. 1194
  5690. 01:19:32,238 --> 01:19:35,198
  5691. In the old days, I used to
  5692. get really angry.
  5693.  
  5694. 1195
  5695. 01:19:35,368 --> 01:19:37,588
  5696. But I changed
  5697. my whole philosophy.
  5698.  
  5699. 1196
  5700. 01:19:37,768 --> 01:19:40,808
  5701. The only thing I complain about
  5702. in our job is that
  5703.  
  5704. 1197
  5705. 01:19:40,988 --> 01:19:42,574
  5706. if you're the sort of person
  5707. who worries,
  5708.  
  5709. 1198
  5710. 01:19:42,598 --> 01:19:45,288
  5711. you have so much time
  5712. to sit and worry
  5713.  
  5714. 1199
  5715. 01:19:45,468 --> 01:19:47,038
  5716. that you just worry
  5717. and worry and worry.
  5718.  
  5719. 1200
  5720. 01:19:47,208 --> 01:19:49,858
  5721. I spent quite a lot of years
  5722. being anxious
  5723.  
  5724. 1201
  5725. 01:19:50,038 --> 01:19:51,818
  5726. about the people
  5727. that didn't like us
  5728.  
  5729. 1202
  5730. 01:19:51,998 --> 01:19:55,038
  5731. without focusing enough
  5732. on the people that do.
  5733.  
  5734. 1203
  5735. 01:19:55,218 --> 01:19:56,308
  5736. It's hard to explain.
  5737.  
  5738. 1204
  5739. 01:20:00,268 --> 01:20:01,268
  5740. I'm not.
  5741.  
  5742. 1205
  5743. 01:20:01,348 --> 01:20:02,788
  5744. You are. Apart from...
  5745.  
  5746. 1206
  5747. 01:20:09,058 --> 01:20:10,888
  5748. No, I know, Guy.
  5749.  
  5750. 1207
  5751. 01:20:11,058 --> 01:20:13,798
  5752. But if I wasn't a perfectionist,
  5753. we'd still be playing the Falcon.
  5754.  
  5755. 1208
  5756. 01:20:13,978 --> 01:20:15,978
  5757. So? But you'd be doing it
  5758. very well.
  5759.  
  5760. 1209
  5761. 01:20:17,408 --> 01:20:19,628
  5762. I think everything
  5763. we've done is shit.
  5764.  
  5765. 1210
  5766. 01:20:19,808 --> 01:20:22,198
  5767. That's why I keep
  5768. trying to do new stuff.
  5769.  
  5770. 1211
  5771. 01:20:25,198 --> 01:20:29,338
  5772. That's my gut feeling. That's what
  5773. fires you up to do the next thing.
  5774.  
  5775. 1212
  5776. 01:20:29,508 --> 01:20:32,948
  5777. In the early days, I think there
  5778. used to be a lot more arguments,
  5779.  
  5780. 1213
  5781. 01:20:33,128 --> 01:20:35,338
  5782. particularly between
  5783. Chris and myself.
  5784.  
  5785. 1214
  5786. 01:20:35,518 --> 01:20:37,998
  5787. I was probably much
  5788. more opinionated back then,
  5789.  
  5790. 1215
  5791. 01:20:38,168 --> 01:20:41,438
  5792. which I think was probably
  5793. a huge pain in the ass
  5794.  
  5795. 1216
  5796. 01:20:41,608 --> 01:20:44,048
  5797. for everyone.
  5798.  
  5799. 1217
  5800. 01:20:44,218 --> 01:20:45,670
  5801. I don't know if I was
  5802. trying to get away from
  5803.  
  5804. 1218
  5805. 01:20:45,695 --> 01:20:47,154
  5806. myself or if I wasn't
  5807. comfortable with myself,
  5808.  
  5809. 1219
  5810. 01:20:47,178 --> 01:20:50,578
  5811. but I definitely had
  5812. a drinking problem.
  5813.  
  5814. 1220
  5815. 01:20:50,748 --> 01:20:55,228
  5816. It doesn't make for
  5817. the happiest of times.
  5818.  
  5819. 1221
  5820. 01:20:55,408 --> 01:20:57,798
  5821. Chris definitely
  5822. wears his heart on his sleeve.
  5823.  
  5824. 1222
  5825. 01:20:57,978 --> 01:21:02,978
  5826. Will, Jonny, and myself are
  5827. much more guarded emotionally,
  5828.  
  5829. 1223
  5830. 01:21:03,158 --> 01:21:05,288
  5831. and that's probably
  5832. why so many bands have split up,
  5833.  
  5834. 1224
  5835. 01:21:05,458 --> 01:21:10,468
  5836. because they haven't learned how to
  5837. accept each other's differences.
  5838.  
  5839. 1225
  5840. 01:21:10,638 --> 01:21:13,768
  5841. There was a time where I was like,
  5842. "Everyone needs to just follow my feelings."
  5843.  
  5844. 1226
  5845. 01:21:13,948 --> 01:21:16,364
  5846. At a certain point I was like,
  5847. "If this carries on like this",
  5848.  
  5849. 1227
  5850. 01:21:16,388 --> 01:21:18,468
  5851. then one of them's gonna leave."
  5852.  
  5853. 1228
  5854. 01:21:21,088 --> 01:21:25,348
  5855. It might be like, "We don't wanna deal
  5856. with this temperamental idiot all day."
  5857.  
  5858. 1229
  5859. 01:21:25,528 --> 01:21:27,088
  5860. ♪ What a cunt ♪
  5861.  
  5862. 1230
  5863. 01:21:27,268 --> 01:21:30,528
  5864. Only 32 concerts to go
  5865. before the end of Coldplay.
  5866.  
  5867. 1231
  5868. 01:21:34,058 --> 01:21:35,984
  5869. They've got their own feelings
  5870. and their own lives.
  5871.  
  5872. 1232
  5873. 01:21:36,008 --> 01:21:38,228
  5874. Even though
  5875. they are much harder to read,
  5876.  
  5877. 1233
  5878. 01:21:38,408 --> 01:21:41,108
  5879. but they still have
  5880. highs and lows.
  5881.  
  5882. 1234
  5883. 01:21:41,278 --> 01:21:43,328

  5885. keeps hitting me in the face.
  5886.  
  5887. 1235
  5888. 01:21:43,498 --> 01:21:45,408
  5889. It's like singing
  5890. into Naseem Hamed.
  5891.  
  5892. 1236
  5893. 01:21:45,588 --> 01:21:48,458
  5894. I'm learning how to deal with the
  5895. peaks and the troughs a bit better.
  5896.  
  5897. 1237
  5898. 01:21:48,638 --> 01:21:50,858
  5899. Please sort it out.Understood.
  5900.  
  5901. 1238
  5902. 01:21:51,028 --> 01:21:54,858
  5903. Every cliché that there is,
  5904. we've been through it.
  5905.  
  5906. 1239
  5907. 01:21:55,028 --> 01:21:57,468
  5908. We just never felt like
  5909. it was important to talk about.
  5910.  
  5911. 1240
  5912. 01:21:57,638 --> 01:22:00,558

  5915.  
  5916. 1241
  5917. 01:22:00,728 --> 01:22:03,818
  5918. probably gonna have been through
  5919. depression, addiction,
  5920.  
  5921. 1242
  5922. 01:22:03,998 --> 01:22:05,428
  5923. divorce, everything,
  5924.  
  5925. 1243
  5926. 01:22:05,608 --> 01:22:07,218
  5927. even if it was five accountants.

  5929. 1244
  5930. 01:22:07,388 --> 01:22:09,478
  5931. We've been through
  5932. so much together.
  5933.  
  5934. 1245
  5935. 01:22:09,658 --> 01:22:12,298
  5936. But what's incredible to me is that
  5937. we've stuck together as a pack.
  5938.  
  5939. 1246
  5940. 01:22:33,068 --> 01:22:35,378
  5941. Everywhere we go,
  5942. whatever we're going through,
  5943.  
  5944. 1247
  5945. 01:22:35,548 --> 01:22:37,948
  5946. we can close the door
  5947. and sit down as a group
  5948.  
  5949. 1248
  5950. 01:22:38,118 --> 01:22:41,558
  5951. and either laugh about it
  5952. or commiserate or celebrate.
  5953.  
  5954. 1249
  5955. 01:22:50,038 --> 01:22:52,128
  5956. I could sit with
  5957. Jon, Will and Guy and Phil
  5958.  
  5959. 1250
  5960. 01:22:52,308 --> 01:22:53,608
  5961. just for hours right now
  5962.  
  5963. 1251
  5964. 01:22:53,788 --> 01:22:55,568
  5965. and just talk about anything.
  5966.  
  5967. 1252
  5968. 01:23:17,028 --> 01:23:20,898
  5969. I think that X&Y had been
  5970. a bit of a slog for all of us,
  5971.  
  5972. 1253
  5973. 01:23:21,078 --> 01:23:22,598
  5974. whereas getting back
  5975. in the studio
  5976.  
  5977. 1254
  5978. 01:23:22,768 --> 01:23:24,688
  5979. and doing Viva
  5980. became exciting again.
  5981.  
  5982. 1255
  5983. 01:23:29,338 --> 01:23:31,908
  5984. We definitely missed Phil and we
  5985. realized how much we missed him
  5986.  
  5987. 1256
  5988. 01:23:32,088 --> 01:23:34,438
  5989. when he came back into the fold.
  5990.  
  5991. 1257
  5992. 01:23:34,608 --> 01:23:37,348
  5993. Yeah, Phil came back in
  5994. in glorious technicolor again,
  5995.  
  5996. 1258
  5997. 01:23:37,528 --> 01:23:39,918
  5998. and that's when we bought
  5999. our own little place
  6000.  
  6001. 1259
  6002. 01:23:40,088 --> 01:23:43,448
  6003. and really tried to
  6004. reconnect as friends.
  6005.  
  6006. 1260
  6007. 01:23:43,618 --> 01:23:45,928
  6008. When I came back, I was
  6009. not coming back as a manager.
  6010.  
  6011. 1261
  6012. 01:23:46,098 --> 01:23:48,448
  6013. Dave Holmes was doing that
  6014. much better than I ever could.
  6015.  
  6016. 1262
  6017. 01:23:48,618 --> 01:23:50,708
  6018. I was coming back as a bandmate,
  6019.  
  6020. 1263
  6021. 01:23:50,888 --> 01:23:52,408
  6022. just doing all the fun stuff.
  6023.  
  6024. 1264
  6025. 01:23:52,588 --> 01:23:54,888
  6026. We finally got our band home.
  6027.  
  6028. 1265
  6029. 01:23:55,068 --> 01:23:58,158
  6030. That really brought
  6031. everything back into focus.
  6032.  
  6033. 1266
  6034. 01:23:58,328 --> 01:24:01,158
  6035. You know, it was
  6036. our own studio, our own HQ.
  6037.  
  6038. 1267
  6039. 01:24:04,118 --> 01:24:07,028
  6040. It was new territory for us. We
  6041. didn't really know how to behave.
  6042.  
  6043. 1268
  6044. 01:24:07,208 --> 01:24:09,688
  6045. I think we wanted a producer
  6046. to give us some ideas about
  6047.  
  6048. 1269
  6049. 01:24:09,858 --> 01:24:12,868
  6050. how we can present
  6051. the next phase of our band.
  6052.  
  6053. 1270
  6054. 01:24:13,038 --> 01:24:16,568
  6055. We wanted to find someone
  6056. who had the same effect on us
  6057.  
  6058. 1271
  6059. 01:24:16,738 --> 01:24:20,918
  6060. as Brian Eno did on U2 and
  6061. David Bowie and Talking Heads,
  6062.  
  6063. 1272
  6064. 01:24:21,088 --> 01:24:23,008
  6065. all these incredible bands
  6066. that we love.
  6067.  
  6068. 1273
  6069. 01:24:23,178 --> 01:24:26,658
  6070. And so we asked Brian,
  6071. "Do you know anyone?"
  6072.  
  6073. 1274
  6074. 01:24:26,838 --> 01:24:29,398
  6075. And he said, "Well, I wouldn't
  6076. mind having a go."
  6077.  
  6078. 1275
  6079. 01:24:29,578 --> 01:24:31,408
  6080. So, we were looking for
  6081. the new Brian Eno
  6082.  
  6083. 1276
  6084. 01:24:31,578 --> 01:24:34,408
  6085. and we found the old Brian Eno.
  6086.  
  6087. 1277
  6088. 01:24:36,798 --> 01:24:38,518
  6089. I think he only becomes
  6090. interested in a band
  6091.  
  6092. 1278
  6093. 01:24:38,668 --> 01:24:41,288
  6094. when they get massive
  6095. and terrible at the same time,
  6096.  
  6097. 1279
  6098. 01:24:41,458 --> 01:24:45,068
  6099. because he sees an opportunity to
  6100. keep you massive, but make you good.
  6101.  
  6102. 1280
  6103. 01:24:46,508 --> 01:24:48,988
  6104. It's very much like a having
  6105. a lovely, cuddly headmaster
  6106.  
  6107. 1281
  6108. 01:24:49,158 --> 01:24:52,248
  6109. quietly directing proceedings
  6110. without ever raising his voice.
  6111.  
  6112. 1282
  6113. 01:24:52,428 --> 01:24:53,624
  6114. He's like a sort of
  6115. wizard-type figure,
  6116.  
  6117. 1283
  6118. 01:24:53,648 --> 01:24:55,738
  6119. like a Gandalf or a Dumbledore
  6120.  
  6121. 1284
  6122. 01:24:55,908 --> 01:24:58,478
  6123. who comes in and sprinkles
  6124. magic all over the place
  6125.  
  6126. 1285
  6127. 01:24:58,648 --> 01:25:00,088
  6128. and then disappears for a bit,
  6129.  
  6130. 1286
  6131. 01:25:00,258 --> 01:25:02,258
  6132. or says,
  6133. "I really like that song,
  6134.  
  6135. 1287
  6136. 01:25:02,438 --> 01:25:04,918
  6137. but have you thought about playing
  6138. it backwards and in French?"
  6139.  
  6140. 1288
  6141. 01:25:12,138 --> 01:25:14,928
  6142. He's a relentless experimenter.
  6143.  
  6144. 1289
  6145. 01:25:15,098 --> 01:25:17,888
  6146. He's not afraid for it to sound silly.
  6147. He's not afraid to fail.
  6148.  
  6149. 1290
  6150. 01:25:18,058 --> 01:25:21,938
  6151. It can be sublimely ridiculous,
  6152. some of the stuff that we're doing.
  6153.  
  6154. 1291
  6155. 01:25:26,328 --> 01:25:28,638
  6156. He kicked me out of the band
  6157. for a few weeks.
  6158.  
  6159. 1292
  6160. 01:25:28,808 --> 01:25:30,898
  6161. At that time,
  6162. I could be quite strong-minded
  6163.  
  6164. 1293
  6165. 01:25:31,078 --> 01:25:32,638
  6166. in terms of it has
  6167. to sound like this.
  6168.  
  6169. 1294
  6170. 01:25:32,818 --> 01:25:35,468
  6171. So, he taught us to let everyone
  6172. get to the end of their idea
  6173.  
  6174. 1295
  6175. 01:25:35,638 --> 01:25:37,728
  6176. before any judgment is passed.
  6177.  
  6178. 1296
  6179. 01:25:46,528 --> 01:25:49,398
  6180. We went to Barcelona and we did
  6181. a sort of singing trip with him,
  6182.  
  6183. 1297
  6184. 01:25:49,568 --> 01:25:52,048
  6185. which is one of
  6186. the key elements on that record,
  6187.  
  6188. 1298
  6189. 01:25:52,228 --> 01:25:54,358
  6190. the sound of lots of
  6191. voices together.
  6192.  
  6193. 1299
  6194. 01:25:56,668 --> 01:26:00,708
  6195. The thing that sparked Viva La Vida
  6196. was the big sing-along chants.
  6197.  
  6198. 1300
  6199. 01:26:05,148 --> 01:26:08,328
  6200. The most purely joyous bit
  6201. for me is that communal thing.
  6202.  
  6203. 1301
  6204. 01:26:08,498 --> 01:26:10,898
  6205. What's the next one?
  6206. Oh, "Viva La Vida"?
  6207.  
  6208. 1302
  6209. 01:26:11,068 --> 01:26:12,768
  6210. Nothing can beat a chant live.
  6211.  
  6212. 1303
  6213. 01:26:15,028 --> 01:26:17,118
  6214. I love sing-alongs
  6215. more than anything.
  6216.  
  6217. 1304
  6218. 01:27:08,998 --> 01:27:12,048
  6219. Through the course of
  6220. the next album, Mylo Xyloto,
  6221.  
  6222. 1305
  6223. 01:27:12,218 --> 01:27:15,738
  6224. it was pretty clear that I was doing
  6225. well in some parts of my life
  6226.  
  6227. 1306
  6228. 01:27:15,918 --> 01:27:17,828
  6229. and really not well in others.
  6230.  
  6231. 1307
  6232. 01:27:18,008 --> 01:27:20,138
  6233. When we're on tour,
  6234. it's such a little bubble
  6235.  
  6236. 1308
  6237. 01:27:20,308 --> 01:27:22,318
  6238. that you become
  6239. institutionalized,
  6240.  
  6241. 1309
  6242. 01:27:22,488 --> 01:27:24,098
  6243. and this is why
  6244. a lot of front men
  6245.  
  6246. 1310
  6247. 01:27:24,278 --> 01:27:26,408
  6248. have problems
  6249. in their personal life.
  6250.  
  6251. 1311
  6252. 01:27:28,148 --> 01:27:29,718
  6253. Towards the end of the Mylotour,
  6254.  
  6255. 1312
  6256. 01:27:29,888 --> 01:27:33,018
  6257. it was a very difficult period
  6258. for about a year or so
  6259.  
  6260. 1313
  6261. 01:27:33,198 --> 01:27:37,158
  6262. of feeling completely worthless
  6263. and nothing to anybody.
  6264.  
  6265. 1314
  6266. 01:27:37,328 --> 01:27:38,938
  6267. I was just like,
  6268. I'm a mess, really,
  6269.  
  6270. 1315
  6271. 01:27:39,118 --> 01:27:42,598
  6272. because I can't enjoy
  6273. the great things around me.
  6274.  
  6275. 1316
  6276. 01:27:42,768 --> 01:27:46,728
  6277. Then, of course, I went through
  6278. a breakup with Gwyneth.
  6279.  
  6280. 1317
  6281. 01:27:47,908 --> 01:27:49,518
  6282. Listen, man,
  6283. I'm never gonna moan.
  6284.  
  6285. 1318
  6286. 01:27:49,688 --> 01:27:50,998
  6287. I'm grateful for everything.
  6288.  
  6289. 1319
  6290. 01:27:51,168 --> 01:27:53,608
  6291. But it was pretty touch and go.
  6292.  
  6293. 1320
  6294. 01:27:53,778 --> 01:27:56,828
  6295. It was evident that things
  6296. were very difficult for Chris
  6297.  
  6298. 1321
  6299. 01:27:56,998 --> 01:27:59,178
  6300. and that he was unhappy.
  6301.  
  6302. 1322
  6303. 01:27:59,348 --> 01:28:01,528
  6304. We sort of felt helpless
  6305. in a way, you know,
  6306.  
  6307. 1323
  6308. 01:28:01,698 --> 01:28:07,138
  6309. naturally it's distressing when your friend
  6310. is going through something so traumatic.
  6311.  
  6312. 1324
  6313. 01:28:07,318 --> 01:28:09,278
  6314. He was in a lot of pain.
  6315.  
  6316. 1325
  6317. 01:28:09,448 --> 01:28:12,628
  6318. Your mind can go to
  6319. the worst-case scenario.
  6320.  
  6321. 1326
  6322. 01:28:12,798 --> 01:28:14,498
  6323. I was worried about him
  6324. to the extent that
  6325.  
  6326. 1327
  6327. 01:28:14,668 --> 01:28:17,238
  6328. I was just really glad
  6329. to get a text in the morning
  6330.  
  6331. 1328
  6332. 01:28:17,418 --> 01:28:19,678
  6333. just to know he was okay.
  6334.  
  6335. 1329
  6336. 01:28:19,848 --> 01:28:22,808
  6337. And almost when he was
  6338. at his absolute lowest,
  6339.  
  6340. 1330
  6341. 01:28:22,988 --> 01:28:25,418
  6342. that was when we
  6343. started making Ghost Stories.
  6344.  
  6345. 1331
  6346. 01:28:27,208 --> 01:28:28,688
  6347. What we decided to do
  6348. on Ghost Stories
  6349.  
  6350. 1332
  6351. 01:28:28,818 --> 01:28:31,118
  6352. was to really be honest
  6353. about it.
  6354.  
  6355. 1333
  6356. 01:28:31,298 --> 01:28:32,688
  6357. I don't wanna bullshit,
  6358.  
  6359. 1334
  6360. 01:28:32,868 --> 01:28:35,778
  6361. because I need to sing it
  6362. to get through the day.
  6363.  
  6364. 1335
  6365. 01:28:37,608 --> 01:28:39,918
  6366. We all set up a studio
  6367. in Guy's house.
  6368.  
  6369. 1336
  6370. 01:28:40,088 --> 01:28:42,568
  6371. I think that was all
  6372. that Chris was capable of.
  6373.  
  6374. 1337
  6375. 01:28:42,738 --> 01:28:46,618
  6376. I remember it
  6377. as being a healing time for him.
  6378.  
  6379. 1338
  6380. 01:28:46,788 --> 01:28:50,098
  6381. I think he started to smile
  6382. a bit more around then.
  6383.  
  6384. 1339
  6385. 01:29:07,678 --> 01:29:09,858
  6386. He was having
  6387. a really hard time.
  6388.  
  6389. 1340
  6390. 01:29:10,028 --> 01:29:13,118
  6391. Yeah, we definitely felt
  6392. very protective towards him.
  6393.  
  6394. 1341
  6395. 01:29:13,298 --> 01:29:15,078
  6396. Chris's life
  6397. is different from mine.
  6398.  
  6399. 1342
  6400. 01:29:15,258 --> 01:29:17,258
  6401. He has very much a public life.
  6402.  
  6403. 1343
  6404. 01:29:17,428 --> 01:29:20,128
  6405. People know what's going on,
  6406. or like to think they know.
  6407.  
  6408. 1344
  6409. 01:29:20,298 --> 01:29:24,478
  6410. So we were worried about him
  6411. letting people in too far,
  6412.  
  6413. 1345
  6414. 01:29:24,658 --> 01:29:27,528
  6415. but this was what he wanted
  6416. to do.
  6417.  
  6418. 1346
  6419. 01:29:34,878 --> 01:29:36,888
  6420. I think Chris needed
  6421. to get it out of his system
  6422.  
  6423. 1347
  6424. 01:29:37,058 --> 01:29:40,238
  6425. and he needed to express
  6426. those things in those songs.
  6427.  
  6428. 1348
  6429. 01:29:40,408 --> 01:29:43,328
  6430. Of course, it was a very personal
  6431. album, and I like it for that reason.
  6432.  
  6433. 1349
  6434. 01:29:43,498 --> 01:29:46,628
  6435. I like it for its bravery
  6436. and its honesty.
  6437.  
  6438. 1350
  6439. 01:29:46,808 --> 01:29:51,418
  6440. What we wanted to do was to provide the
  6441. comfort that music has always given him.
  6442.  
  6443. 1351
  6444. 01:29:51,598 --> 01:29:56,168
  6445. That's the only way that we could really
  6446. help him was to be musical friends.
  6447.  
  6448. 1352
  6449. 01:29:57,468 --> 01:29:59,534
  6450. When some of us have been going
  6451. through harder times,
  6452.  
  6453. 1353
  6454. 01:29:59,558 --> 01:30:02,038
  6455. it's the band
  6456. that really picks each other up.
  6457.  
  6458. 1354
  6459. 01:30:02,218 --> 01:30:05,568
  6460. That really is an amazing thing
  6461. to have in your life.
  6462.  
  6463. 1355
  6464. 01:30:05,738 --> 01:30:10,218
  6465. Whenever anyone needs anything,
  6466. really, everybody's there.
  6467.  
  6468. 1356
  6469. 01:30:10,398 --> 01:30:14,448
  6470. It has evolved into
  6471. much more than just friendship.
  6472.  
  6473. 1357
  6474. 01:30:14,618 --> 01:30:16,968
  6475. We are more like a family now.
  6476.  
  6477. 1358
  6478. 01:30:17,138 --> 01:30:19,228
  6479. It was a challenging period.
  6480.  
  6481. 1359
  6482. 01:30:19,408 --> 01:30:23,538
  6483. It was a sort of journey from ultimate
  6484. loneliness to ultimate togetherness.
  6485.  
  6486. 1360
  6487. 01:30:25,628 --> 01:30:27,548
  6488. Come on, come on, come on.
  6489. Come on.
  6490.  
  6491. 1361
  6492. 01:30:27,718 --> 01:30:29,678
  6493. Bring it. Bring it in.
  6494.  
  6495. 1362
  6496. 01:30:29,848 --> 01:30:31,848
  6497. Phil, you wanna lead? Come on in.
  6498.  
  6499. 1363
  6500. 01:30:46,348 --> 01:30:48,998
  6501. It's been a long journey
  6502. up to this point.
  6503.  
  6504. 1364
  6505. 01:30:49,178 --> 01:30:52,308
  6506. The period that we've been a band has
  6507. been such a shifting time in music.
  6508.  
  6509. 1365
  6510. 01:30:52,478 --> 01:30:55,698
  6511. It's just not a time where you
  6512. can take something for granted.
  6513.  
  6514. 1366
  6515. 01:30:55,878 --> 01:30:58,528
  6516. I think we were very lucky
  6517. to have each other
  6518.  
  6519. 1367
  6520. 01:30:58,708 --> 01:31:00,798
  6521. and lucky in many other ways
  6522. as well.
  6523.  
  6524. 1368
  6525. 01:31:00,968 --> 01:31:03,798
  6526. I feel like I've been running
  6527. for years.
  6528.  
  6529. 1369
  6530. 01:31:03,968 --> 01:31:05,768
  6531. It's the first time
  6532. since I've joined the band
  6533.  
  6534. 1370
  6535. 01:31:05,928 --> 01:31:08,628
  6536. I've actually stopped
  6537. and looked back.
  6538.  
  6539. 1371
  6540. 01:31:08,798 --> 01:31:13,158
  6541. It really does feel like
  6542. a lifetime ago that we started.
  6543.  
  6544. 1372
  6545. 01:31:13,328 --> 01:31:15,718
  6546. Hello.
  6547.  
  6548. 1373
  6549. 01:31:25,518 --> 01:31:29,478
  6550. What's still the same is our
  6551. passion to make music together.
  6552.  
  6553. 1374
  6554. 01:31:29,648 --> 01:31:32,388
  6555. I wouldn't wanna do what I do
  6556. if I wasn't with my friends.
  6557.  
  6558. 1375
  6559. 01:31:32,568 --> 01:31:35,398
  6560. I think the gang mentality
  6561. is still definitely there,
  6562.  
  6563. 1376
  6564. 01:31:35,568 --> 01:31:37,788
  6565. but it's just the gang's
  6566. got a bit bigger.
  6567.  
  6568. 1377
  6569. 01:31:37,958 --> 01:31:42,268
  6570. That initial dream, at the time we had
  6571. it, that seemed like the final point,
  6572.  
  6573. 1378
  6574. 01:31:42,448 --> 01:31:45,318
  6575. and what I've realized is, actually
  6576. that's just the beginning.
  6577.  
  6578. 1379
  6579. 01:31:45,488 --> 01:31:47,668
  6580. I don't feel like we've got
  6581. to a final destination.
  6582.  
  6583. 1380
  6584. 01:32:17,438 --> 01:32:19,308
  6585. I don't want to stop playing.
  6586.  
  6587. 1381
  6588. 01:32:19,478 --> 01:32:21,658
  6589. I don't wanna stop this.
  6590.  
  6591. 1382
  6592. 01:32:21,828 --> 01:32:23,968
  6593. Don't want to stop this.
  6594.  
  6595. 1383
  6596. 01:32:27,748 --> 01:32:29,278
  6597. Let's turn it up.
  6598. Let's turn it up.
  6599.  
  6600. 1384
  6601. 01:32:29,448 --> 01:32:31,278
  6602. Let's turn it up.
  6603. Let's turn it up.
  6604.  
  6605. 1385
  6606. 01:32:31,448 --> 01:32:33,578
  6607. Let's turn it up.
  6608. Let's turn it up.
  6609.  
  6610. 1386
  6611. 01:32:45,728 --> 01:32:47,768
  6612. I really don't look back.
  6613. You know?
  6614.  
  6615. 1387
  6616. 01:32:47,948 --> 01:32:49,598
  6617. I just feel weird about it.
  6618.  
  6619. 1388
  6620. 01:32:49,768 --> 01:32:52,558
  6621. Like Phil said the other day,
  6622. because I was about to turn 40,
  6623.  
  6624. 1389
  6625. 01:32:52,728 --> 01:32:56,648
  6626. you should write a letter to your 17-year-old
  6627. self and tell him what you're up to,
  6628.  
  6629. 1390
  6630. 01:32:56,818 --> 01:32:59,478
  6631. 'cause his head would
  6632. just explode.
  6633.  
  6634. 1391
  6635. 01:32:59,648 --> 01:33:02,918
  6636. The first few years, you try to make
  6637. yourself feel different to everybody else.
  6638.  
  6639. 1392
  6640. 01:33:03,088 --> 01:33:07,398
  6641. But in the last few years, I feel like the
  6642. journey's just been to remind me and us
  6643.  
  6644. 1393
  6645. 01:33:07,568 --> 01:33:11,578
  6646. that we're all in the same tribe on
  6647. the same little planet in space,
  6648.  
  6649. 1394
  6650. 01:33:11,748 --> 01:33:15,798
  6651. and more than ever, it feels
  6652. like that's what we're part of:
  6653.  
  6654. 1395
  6655. 01:33:15,968 --> 01:33:17,318
  6656. One big band.
  6657.  
  6658. 1396
  6659. 01:33:18,848 --> 01:33:21,588
  6660. So, what next? I don't know what's next.
  6661.  
  6662. 1397
  6663. 01:33:21,758 --> 01:33:24,588
  6664. We've been trying to get
  6665. to this place for a long time.
  6666.  
  6667. 1398
  6668. 01:33:24,768 --> 01:33:28,728
  6669. I'd be very surprised if there was
  6670. another conventional Coldplay album.
  6671.  
  6672. 1399
  6673. 01:33:28,898 --> 01:33:31,208
  6674. It feels like the finale
  6675. of the story,
  6676.  
  6677. 1400
  6678. 01:33:31,378 --> 01:33:33,728
  6679. or the end of a movie.
  6680.  
  6681. 1401
  6682. 01:33:33,908 --> 01:33:35,884
  6683. It doesn't surprise me
  6684. that he's saying now is
  6685.  
  6686. 1402
  6687. 01:33:35,909 --> 01:33:37,842
  6688. the end of an era, it's
  6689. the end of something,
  6690.  
  6691. 1403
  6692. 01:33:37,998 --> 01:33:40,348
  6693. 'cause it really is in his mind.
  6694.  
  6695. 1404
  6696. 01:33:40,518 --> 01:33:44,698
  6697. But I hope it's not really
  6698. the end of things.
  6699.  
  6700. 1405
  6701. 01:33:44,868 --> 01:33:46,738
  6702. Literally happens every album.
  6703.  
  6704. 1406
  6705. 01:33:46,918 --> 01:33:49,828
  6706. "This might be our last one."
  6707. And it hasn't been yet.
  6708.  
  6709. 1407
  6710. 01:33:50,008 --> 01:33:52,918
  6711. I'm just looking forward to
  6712. what happens next.
  6713.  
  6714. 1408
  6715. 01:33:53,098 --> 01:33:54,748
  6716. We've been together for 20 years
  6717.  
  6718. 1409
  6719. 01:33:54,928 --> 01:33:57,708
  6720. and achieved so many things
  6721. that we wanted to achieve.
  6722.  
  6723. 1410
  6724. 01:33:57,888 --> 01:34:00,668
  6725. I mean, it has just been
  6726. the most amazing ride so far.
  6727.  
  6728. 1411
  6729. 01:34:00,848 --> 01:34:02,538
  6730. I'm grateful for
  6731. the whole journey.
  6732.  
  6733. 1412
  6734. 01:34:02,718 --> 01:34:05,068
  6735. I have faith in the future.
  6736.  
  6737. 1413
  6738. 01:34:05,238 --> 01:34:06,588
  6739. I trust life.
  6740.  
  6741. 1414
  6742. 01:34:12,678 --> 01:34:15,728
  6743. First of all, thank you all
  6744. so much for being here.
  6745.  
  6746. 1415
  6747. 01:34:15,898 --> 01:34:18,688
  6748. You're all actually a part of the band.
  6749. Isn't that crazy?
  6750.  
  6751. 1416
  6752. 01:34:18,858 --> 01:34:22,948
  6753. Even though some of you might be ashamed
  6754. to say it, you're all members of Coldplay.
  6755.  
  6756. 1417
  6757. 01:34:23,128 --> 01:34:25,168
  6758. We got one more song
  6759. if you wanna do it.
  6760.  
  6761. 1418
  6762. 01:34:25,348 --> 01:34:26,648
  6763. Yay!
  6764.  
  6765. 1419
  6766. 01:34:26,828 --> 01:34:28,348
  6767. Thank you for
  6768. that lovely response.
  6769.  
  6770. 1420
  6771. 01:34:28,528 --> 01:34:30,568
  6772. You get top marks from me.
  6773.  
  6774. 1421
  6775. 01:34:30,738 --> 01:34:33,748
  6776. One, two, three and...
  6777.  
  6778. 1422
  6779. 01:36:22,858 --> 01:36:24,858
  6780. My friends...
  6781.  
  6782. 1423
  6783. 01:36:26,288 --> 01:36:29,078
  6784. This is the end of
  6785. A Head Full of Dreamstour.
  6786.  
  6787. 1424
  6788. 01:36:29,948 --> 01:36:31,948
  6789. Back where it all began.
  6790.  
  6791. 1425
  6792. 01:36:32,128 --> 01:36:35,348
  6793. Thank you, everybody
  6794. all around the world,
  6795.  
  6796. 1426
  6797. 01:36:35,518 --> 01:36:37,178
  6798. at home and abroad,
  6799.  
  6800. 1427
  6801. 01:36:38,788 --> 01:36:40,918
  6802. for being the best part
  6803. of our show
  6804.  
  6805. 1428
  6806. 01:36:41,088 --> 01:36:44,618
  6807. and for keeping your
  6808. and our heads full of dreams.
  6809.  
  6810. 1429
  6811. 01:36:46,308 --> 01:36:47,448
  6812. We're in this together.
  6813.  
  6814. 1430
  6815. 01:36:49,058 --> 01:36:50,448
  6816. We're one big band.
  6817.  
  6818. 1431
  6819. 01:36:52,148 --> 01:36:56,278
  6820. Everything is possible
  6821. if you never give up
  6822.  
  6823. 1432
  6824. 01:36:57,148 --> 01:36:59,018
  6825. and if you believe in love.
  6826.  
  6827. 1433
  6828. 01:39:49,188 --> 01:39:52,758
  6829. If you're watching this,
  6830. it means we haven't flopped.
  6831.  
  6832. 1434
  6833. 01:39:52,938 --> 01:39:55,068
  6834. So, thanks a lot
  6835. for not making us flop.
  6836.  
  6837. 1435
  6838. 01:39:55,238 --> 01:39:57,288
  6839. If you're not watching this,
  6840. we have flopped,
  6841.  
  6842. 1436
  6843. 01:39:57,458 --> 01:40:00,418
  6844. so I can say what
  6845. the fuck I want.
  6846.  
  6847. 1437
  6848. 01:40:07,208 --> 01:40:09,778
  6849. Come on.
  6850. We'll get past it.
  6851.  
  6852. 1438
  6853. 01:40:09,948 --> 01:40:13,428
  6854. If you're watching this... Obviously,
  6855. they're watching this.
  6856.  
  6857. 1439
  6858. 01:40:13,608 --> 01:40:16,698
  6859. It should be "You're
  6860. watching this." Not if.
  6861.  
  6862. 1440
  6863. 01:40:16,868 --> 01:40:18,218
  6864. Let's go.
  6865.  
  6866. 1441
  6867. 01:40:18,398 --> 01:40:20,398
  6868. Let's go and sell
  6869. some fucking records.
  6870.  
  6871. 1442
  6872. 01:40:20,568 --> 01:40:23,098
  6873. It's time to go home. Tell them
  6874. we formed at college.
  6875.  
  6876. 1443
  6877. 01:40:23,268 --> 01:40:25,928
  6878. I don't care.
  6879. I don't like Alan McGee.
  6880.  
  6881. 1444
  6882. 01:40:26,098 --> 01:40:28,538
  6883. Can you sing that note
  6884. again, please? Yeah.
  6885.  
  6886. 1445
  6887. 01:40:31,578 --> 01:40:34,888
  6888. I think this song
  6889. is brilliant. I think it's good too.
  6890.  
  6891. 1446
  6892. 01:40:35,068 --> 01:40:38,198
  6893. What do you think, Will?
  6894.  
  6895. 1447
  6896. 01:40:38,368 --> 01:40:40,068
  6897. I think the second half
  6898. is great.
  6899.  
  6900. 1448
  6901. 01:40:43,938 --> 01:40:46,598
  6902. We are probably the
  6903. only band in England
  6904.  
  6905. 1449
  6906. 01:40:46,768 --> 01:40:49,298
  6907. where at least two of the
  6908. members have got webbed feet.
  6909.  
  6910. 1450
  6911. 01:40:49,468 --> 01:40:53,388
  6912. - Who's got webbed feet?
  6913. - We're all bluffing now, aren't we?
  6914.  
  6915. 1451
  6916. 01:40:53,558 --> 01:40:57,258
  6917. The reason I knew, we were on tour.
  6918. We had a shower.
  6919.  
  6920. 1452
  6921. 01:40:57,438 --> 01:41:02,398
  6922. And every morning, there'd be two sets
  6923. of normal footprints and two flippers.
  6924.  
  6925. 1453
  6926. 01:41:02,568 --> 01:41:03,878
  6927. Two flippers?
  6928.  
  6929. 1454
  6930. 01:41:07,528 --> 01:41:09,878
  6931. I can fucking see you laughing!
  6932.  
  6933. 1455
  6934. 01:41:10,058 --> 01:41:12,058
  6935. A lot of people think...
  6936.  
  6937. 1456
  6938. 01:41:13,318 --> 01:41:15,538
  6939. we're not rock and roll.
  6940.  
  6941. 1457
  6942. 01:41:15,708 --> 01:41:19,848
  6943. But I ask you, is having pastries
  6944. before eight o'clock not rock and roll?
  6945.  
  6946. 1458
  6947. 01:41:20,018 --> 01:41:21,758
  6948. In what fucking universe?
  6949.  
  6950. 1459
  6951. 01:41:30,468 --> 01:41:34,778
  6952. Ladies and gentlemen, you may remember
  6953. a year ago this band was formed...
  6954.  
  6955. 1460
  6956. 01:41:43,048 --> 01:41:44,568
  6957. Fucking pathetic!
  6958.  
  6959. 1461
  6960. 01:42:27,348 --> 01:42:28,918
  6961. I'm gonna be sick.
  6962.  
  6963. 1462
  6964. 01:44:19,632 --> 01:44:27,499
  6965. Ripped and synced by
