In a PVR mishap that left me with an incomplete episode of Big Brother, I ended up watching the end of a 60 minutes segment on Coldplay. I’ve always liked Coldplay, sort of, enjoying a song here and there but never really caring about them either way. I was impressed when Chris Martin made fun of himself on Extras and his choice in women is, of course, impeccable. But it wasn’t until I saw about 15 minutes of this segment that I realized how cool a dude he is. He’s a crazy neurotic nerd, it’s awesome. The band as a whole is super humble and low key and just in it for the love of music. The Bob Dylan-quoting, frantic note-scribbling, super private family man is my favourite person of the moment… thanks to 60 Minutes.
