“It’s not a very good song, is it?”

David Bowie to Chris Martin
… on being asked if he would like to collaborate.

To me Coldplay is singularly the most over rated talentless act that I can think of. I know that flys in the face of their millions of fans, but popularity alone was never a measure of greatness was it ? Quite apart that Bowie just didn’t do anything – we knew that, but that he also said ‘no’ to what would likely have been a big selling single is yet another testament to his greatness.
