Some bands are beholden to their leader, like the Smashing Pumpkins behind central creative and star force Corgan; others, more commonly, exist equally in input but still surrender the spotlight to the singer, and probably for good reasons; think R.E.M.
Coldplay fall in the latter. Chris Martin is not the primary creative guy but he is most certainly the face. He is the band. He is married to a Gwyneth Paltrow. Who else is in even in Coldplay, anyway? What are those guys like? We wanted to learn more and to establish a clear pecking order in the band, so here are the top three other members in Coldplay Who Aren’t Chris Martin.
3. Guy Berryman, bass
|When he’s not nailing the groove down, Guy is just a regular …um, guy, who likes antiques, and even runs an antique store with his brother. We like a well-rounded, normal, everyday Guy.|
2. Jonny Buckland, guitar
|Named the godfather of Chris Martin’s daughter Apple, Jonny is the next closest we can get to Chris Martin. He’s basically family. Actor Simon Pegg is also the godfather.|
Runner Up:Will Champion, drums
|He seems nice.|
