Coldplay’s Chris Martin has told of his “little brother” style friendship with Noel Gallagher, who appears on the track ‘Up&Up’ on Coldplay’s new album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’.
Talking of Noel, he said: “I love Noel. I’m like his little brother who likes ballet. We’ve been blessed over the years to have mentors within music.”
He then goes on to say he also sees Jay-Z and Bono as mentors, and talks of his appreciation for Merry Clayton, the soul singer who features on ‘Adventures Of A Lifetime’. “It had been a dream to work with her so we just called her up.” he said of Clayton, “She came in a wheelchair and did her thing and then said, ‘I just lost my legs.’ We didn’t know. She’d just come out of hospital the week before but was so full of joy, gratitude, love and life.”
