It was actually the name of another band from University College and they didn't want it, so Chris & co. took it. I think that's how it went... :?
"We all lived in the same building and we took the name 'Coldplay' from Tim, one of our other flatmates who also had a band. He decided he didn't like the name any more because it was too depressing," says Martin.
there you go :wink:

that's cool. I never saw that before.
But yeah, technically the name came from both. The play and their friends band. And I don't think the name is depressing at all. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it's one of the best band names out there.

Where did you find that Ian?? :shock:
Yes, starfish is worse, or Hooties & The Blowfish, what is with this fish thing?? :?:

It's because of Will's fish fondness. I've read somewhere that he has a serious "fish problem"- he can't get enough of the stuff. :wink: NO, I'm just kidding. But I'm glad they changed it. Starfish is a horrible name.

No matter where they got it from - I love their band name... :D

I'm from Poland. I live in Posen. It's very close to the German border. So Katharina I'm going to visit you in Berlin shortly. :wink: You'd better start running now :lol:. Fast!

Hey, that cool! I already thought you might be from Poland due to your name. I won't run if you decide to come to Berlin! It would be fun to meet you!! :D

The way of spelling reminded me of Polish names I know. That's all. :wink:
