Chris Martin plans to go soloNovember 23rd, 2008 - 1:45 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov 23 (ANI): Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is planning to launch a solo career, it has emerged.
Martin, who is married to actress Gwyneth Paltrow, has a tight schedule lined up for next year so he can bow out of Coldplay before his 33rd birthday in March 2010.
A final album is already in the pipeline for December 2009 along with a string of farewell performances.
Im 31 nowand I dont think that bands should keep going past 33, so were trying to pack in as much as possible. Well go for it until the end of next year, News of the World quoted Martin, as saying.
Martin will then focus on a solo career.
Chris isnt the sort of guy who wants the comfort of being in a band. Hes very proud of what Coldplay have done, but he wants to go out when theyre on top, a music insider said.
Hes become bigger than the band so he knows hes going to have a huge career on his own. A solo career is something hes always wanted to do, he added. (ANI)
