new music tuesday; coldplay’s ‘violet hill’… or will champion – the hotness + a bit about prince and radiohead for kicks

i am, to put it mildly – a casual coldplay fan.  sure, there are some kick ass coldplay tunes, like politik, and the scientist (which johnette napolitano covered brilliantly on her last album) – and yea, i own all the records, but casual fan sum’s me up.

that may be changing.

i’m massively digging the new coldplay tune violet hill from their upcoming release ‘viva la vida or death and all his friends”

the tune is atmospheric – powerful and lush, just like most great coldplay tunes. 

but all of this is irrelevent as it features the hotness that is will champion – the drummer.

i am beyond enamored with mr. champion.  he is sex on a drum stool (insert cb joke here about pushing in your stool).  seriously folks, he’s a strong drummer and a bit of a audiophile (which makes him even hotter – i love smart guys)… he’s dead sexy.

(ummm – woof.  can i just say i love guys in white t-shirts)

i’ve always had a thing for drummers (well, musicians in general if you must know).  i love listening to will’s beats – he’s a strong drummer with a really propulsive style.  he also plays guitar, bass, piano and tin whistle; which i think in forms his drumming style deeply.  drum lines in coldplay are much more guitar centric than simply keeping the beat – the move the song along, pushing it here, pulling back there.  will’s style is a big part of that.

oh, and he’s damn hot in the new video with his shaved head.  mega woof:

the new tune is the best in ages – the first song in recent months that has grabbed me by the balls and said, “hey there – you should listen to me” – i’m loving the new sound.  do i hear elements of alan parsons project in there?

in unrelated music news… prince is a twat. 

he recently played the massive music festival coachella (to rave reviews of course) – and covered radiohead’s “creep” during the show. 

now prince is a massive control freak. as such, has always restricted youtube from allowing people post his video’s or images. (hello forest, didn’t see you for all the trees– you twat, youtube actually allows for people to share your music and art; therefore ultimately supporting you).  his main argument is that youtube violates his copy-writes. 

my love/hate prince relationship goes way back, so i won’t rehash it here, but suffice to say he’s an even bigger twat for restricting concert footage from coachella that shows him performing creep.

why you ask?  well, now, here’s the funny thing – he doesn’t own the copywrite to radiohead’s creep – radiohead does.

this is from billboard.com:

In a recent interview, Thom Yorke said he heard about Prince’s performance from a text message and thought it was “hilarious.” Yorke laughed when his bandmate, guitarist Ed O’Brien, said the blocking had prevented even him from seeing Prince’s version of their song.

“Really? He’s blocked it?” asked Yorke, who figured it was their song to block or not. “Surely we should block it. Hang on a moment.” Yorke added, “Well, tell him to unblock it. It’s our … song.”

but the internet being what it is, people are constantly posting new shit – so i present you with prince performing creep – watch it fast, before it’s pulled down:

if your a prince fan, it won’t suprise you that he changed the lyrics – but it’s the guitar work here that impresses the most. 

to quote my friend greg: “what an idiot.  what a ridiculously rich, talented, famous beloved idiot.”

i sum it up with twat.

now, if you’ll excuse me, i’m just go listen to it on my bootleg copy of the show on cd…

    Hells yes! Will has always been my favorite little treat from the band.

    And I agree-Violet Hill is such a good song-different from their other stuff, yet still a Coldplay tune. I am excited to download it!

    Bitch, I told you that Will is mine! They’re all pretty cute in the band, but Will.Is.Mine
