If you like any of the following bands, you will probably like Coldplay.
I'm pretty sure Coldplay was voted like, the #1 band in the world or something like that.
Well, maybe they have the most fans, but I wouldn't really agree with that statement at all. Nevertheless, they are a good band and worth listening.
When I was a kid I was forced into taking piano lessons, learning such contemporary masterpieces as "Hot Cross Buns". I hated it, and quit as soon as my parents gave me the chance.
As I grew up a bit, I was inspired by Coldplay's album "A Rush Of Blood To The Head". I got their music book (I must have been 14 or 15 at the time) and learned over half of the album.
So rule #1 about Coldplay: They will inspire you to learn the piano! Plus, chicks dig guys who can play Coldplay.
In any case, if you somehow haven't heard them before, Coldplay is a chill band with high smooth vocals and paint on all their instruments.
You could call it soft rock if you like.
Their best album is easily their first: Parachutes. The thing is a masterpiece, and tops anything else they've written to date.
In their newer stuff (now that they have buttloads of money) they make use of a bunch of less "rocklike" instruments such as the Timpani.
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
