...from the new issue of Q magazine:
Q: In the past, you've baulked at the 'elder statesman of rock' tag.
MS: It just doesn't feel really appropriate to me. Or deserved. I don't think in terms of that. Y'know, Chris Martin is a great friend of mine and I think of him as a contemporary. We do the same thing. I don't think of him as someone who is...I don't even know how old he is. [Thinks]
He's...31? He's...30. Which makes 18 years between us. But I don't think about it. Does the make me hopelessly immature or does it make me kind of level in the way I regard things? I don't know.
And cos this tiny piece of news doesn't really deserve a whole thread I shall add in this silly (slightly piss takey) Coldplay-related video
