Chris Martin at The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Press Conference // 08.11.13
My London trip was exciting and wonderful but… but this was such a perfect day! <3
Those pics are mine, if you want to post them anywhere please ask me first. Thanks!
We’re one of those bands where one of us is much more recognizable, because the other three are shy. They just won’t do it. So, it looks like it’s one person with three other random people, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Our bass player is very handsome, so a lot of people recognize him. The first time we won a Grammy, I wasn’t there. People were asking them for more sandwiches, because they thought they were part of the catering team. I’m not joking, they like to blend in as much as possible. But, I would never ever go solo, because when you’re part of a brotherhood like that, when you are not a prodigy or virtuoso at music, the only thing you have in your favor is a unique chemistry. We just got blessed with the fact that when the four of us sit down together, it makes something bigger than the sum of its parts. We all go off and do our own little things but it’s never quite as fulfilling. There’s something very uplifting about it (being a group). At this point, when we have been at it for nearly 18 years, it’s incredible.

Chris forgets how to tune his guitar:
Girl in the audience:
I believe in you!
Thank you so much. The power of believe, is what gonna get me through. Because I've got no fucking idea what I'm doing. Can I have another guitar. I screwed up this one.
