Stitching keeps Coldplay tight knit groupAugust 25th, 2008 - 11:04 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 25 (IANS) Members of British rock band Coldplay have revealed an unusual hobby they have taken up to help them unwind while on tour - sewing.Lead vocalist Chris Martin claims that they have bonded well while stitching their stage costumes, and insists their secret pastime has made them a more tight knit group, reports Contactmusic.com.
“Making clothes together in our studio makes us feel complete. We probably sound like a group of grannies in a knitting circle but it is the truth and it gives us some control over our visual identity,” Martin said.
He added: “When you are a big band and everyone is taking shots at you, the more things you can do together the better. And if you are wearing uniforms made by your own hands it helps.”
Coldplay has earlier given worldwide hit singles like ‘Yellow’, ‘Clocks’, ‘Fix You’, ‘Viva la Vida’, ‘Speed of Sound’ and ‘The Scientist’.
