Martin’s dad’s rockstar attitude

LONDON: Coldplay front man Chris Martin fears his elderly father is more of a hellraiser than him — because the former accountant fully “embraces the rock star lifestyle”.

The singer has never been a fan of wild parties, preferring early nights to booze-fuelled adventures. And Martin, whose father Anthony has joined the band on tour in Australia, is convinced his dad is actually more suited to life as a musician.

He says, “People think having your father on tour would cramp your style. But I don’t have any style — he’s got all the right moves. He’s living the dream. I am going to check he hasn’t trashed the hotel room before we leave each city.”
