Coldplay frontman Chris Martin addressed how some people here don’t consider the group to be very rock and roll. “It’s really odd. We’re trying to get passionate music into the mainstream. But it does feel like we’re the only vegetarians at a meat-eating conference,” he tells Toby Manning of the Cleveland Scene. “And let me say once and for all that we’re as rock and roll as anyone. Rock and roll isn’t dressing up in leather and trashing hotel rooms, or snorting coke off the back of a hooker with the guitarist from Spinecracker. Rock and roll is doing what you want. Independence of mind and spirit.” The full story at clevescene.com has since been removed.
