Springsteen Inspired New Coldplay Album

(Gibson) Coldplay singer Chris Martin, no doubt, is as squeaky-clean as it gets. Between his mellow, alternative pop-rock band and cream-of-the-crop wife Gwyneth Paltrow, it makes sense this guy would stay focused down the good-guy path.

So, when Maxim magazine recently asked Martin to reveal the strangest place he's ever woken up, he didn't take the bait. Martin explained that, "I woke up once somewhere south of Chicago in a children's playground at about five in the morning. I have a lot of trouble sleeping, and this is when we used to fight as a band, and I definitely remember taking too many Ambien, but I can't quite work out how I got there. I think I must've done that thing where you take Ambien and you start wandering around but then you just fall asleep somewhere. I woke up in this playground, but it was really quite near our hotel. That's not really a strange place."

As for Coldplay's recent album, Mylo Xyloto, he mentioned that Bruce Springsteen inspired many of the tracks. "Bruce in the past 10 years has turned a whole new generation on to him," he said. "And it's great in your 30s to discover a new favorite band, and at the same time, in the same decade, discover so much about Jay-Z and Kanye. It's been a nice two avenues of inspiration." more on this story
