Chris Martin laughs off Bono's slur on Coldplay

By Super Admin

Melbourne, March 4 (ANI): English singer-songwriter Chris Martin has laughed off U2 frontman Bono's recent slur on his band Coldplay.

During a live UK radio programme last week, Bono called Martin a "w--ker,'' a "completely dysfunctional character'' and a "cretin'', as well as a "great melodist".

"I always thought he felt that way,'' the Daily Telegraph quoted Martin as jokingly saying.

"I think it's great that we're arch enemies. That's a joke too,'' he added.

According to a report published in the Herald Sun, Martin has long used U2 as the benchmark for Coldplay, with U2 saying Martin's band also keep them on their toes.

"We respect any musician, particularly ones who've kept going and not changed line up and have always been good,'' Martin said.

"The difficulty of the whole U2 thing is we're only on our fourth record. We're competing with people on their fifth records. We're just coming up to where people were making (the Beatles') Revolver or (U2's) The Joshua Tree. We're at a very different stage,'' he added. (ANI)
