  1. During Corona Quarantine, I discovered Coldplay’s music and it’s band members. A delightful music adventure. As a retiree, I had time to listen to every concert and interview with Chris Martin alone or with other band members. I had seen the Super Bowl half time show and watched it again. What a find Coldplay was for me during this time! The brotherhood among Guy, Jonny, Will and Chris was palpable and inspirational that these 4 guys found each other and befriended each other on a level that translates its human kindness to whoever sees and listens. I listen to Glenn Gould and stream opera from SF and NY MET. I waded through the blues from Africa to America and ended up with Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughn sessions 1983 on my daily list along with Mildred Bailey and Bessie Smith. Thank you Coldplay for many of your songs that I sing out loud every day as Will rings the bell and plays the drums and Jonny in his hats stays close to Chris if Chris stays on the stage and Guy is just playing away, happy to be there and smiling as Chris swirls the light or just jumps from somewhere onto the stage. In interviews and working to reach agreements, I enjoyed the peace and how your group arrived at peace. Thank you for the music and the smiles and how you live your lives together and how you have provided for others. I was raised on folk music and classical.
    So happy to have found a good amount of your music.
