Surfacing in with the breakthrough single "Yellow," British group Coldplay quickly became one of the biggest acts of the early 21st century, honing a blend of introspective Brit-pop and anthemic rock that helped push the band to the top of album charts worldwide. Coldplay's emergence couldn't have been more perfectly timed: with Radiohead embracing cerebral electronic soundscapes and Oasis further exploring psychedelic experimentation, audiences were hungry for a fresh-faced rock group with big aspirations and an even bigger sound. After the band's first three LPs went multi-platinum in several countries, Coldplay continued to mature, topping their early success with higher record sales, an ever-evolving sound that absorbed multiple genres, and record-breaking global stadium tours. Martin, the eldest of five, began playing the piano as a young child and later took solace in the work of Tom Waits. Buckland, on the other hand, grew up with the heavy guitar sounds of Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. Scotland native Berryman preferred funk to indie rock, thereby leaving him to play bass, while multi-instrumentalist Champion didn't plan to be a drummer until he joined Coldplay's lineup. The bandmates came together in while attending the University College of London, and the Safety EP was issued shortly after their first gig at a Manchester festival for unsigned bands. Nevertheless, it was enough to win the band a U. With nods from the media, Coldplay were hailed as the next Travis, thanks to their simple acoustics and charming personas. Parlophone ushered Coldplay into Parr St.
In the four years since we last heard from Coldplay, the world has grown more chaotic. The first half, Sunrise, opens with strings both somber and hopeful. How can one go on? Unlike their most recent output, Everyday Life is similarly raw, interspersed with snippets of ambient sound that lend the album familiar texture: street noise, birdsong, a tense exchange between motorist and police officer. While much of the record errs on the side of understatement, there are anthems and grand gestures as well. Sign In. Everyday Life. Trouble In Town. When I Need a Friend. Cry Cry Cry.

I have had several people tell me that now that they know our family all preconceived notions of the "doctor's wife" and the lifestyle of a doctor have completely changed. I disagree with the doctrines and practices of the LDS church. Do you drink alcohol. He has spent years building his practice and is a busy, highly successful pediatric surgeon who is compassionate and respected by everybody, but I think by nature, it is hard for him to be empathetic or to relate to more personal issues.
