Coldplay : Martin's Lost Photos Returned By Train Staff

COLDPLAY rocker CHRIS MARTIN has been reunited with a handful of private family photos of him and wife GWYNETH PALTROW after his father lost them on a train.
Matt Fearn railway manager recognised the stars when he looked through the snaps, which he found in the pocket of a jacket belonging to Martin's dad Anthony, who had left the coat behind on a train travelling through Devon, England.
Fearn began looking for relatives of Martin, who hails from near by Exeter, and contacted a local newspaper for help.
Martin's grateful dad Anthony responded - and he's now heaping praise on the honest train employee.
Britain's Sunday Express he tells, "I'm very impressed with the initiative of the lost property office and Matt Fearn in special, who thought to rummage around in the pockets to try and identify who the jacket belonged to when it had no name in it.
"I thank him very much for taking the trouble and now I shan't be in the dog house for losing some rather important family photos."

COLDPLAY have done a U-turn and allowed their music to be used by hit TV show Glee.

Producers are now busy working on a special episode of the American series featuring the band's tracks.

I can't help feeling their revised decision to now hand over their music must be financially motivated.

Unless Chris's wife GWYNETH PALTROW had a word in his ear.

Let's be honest - it's a show for the girls and the gays.

On paper you can understand why the camp high school musical drama would not seem an obvious choice for Coldplay.

But the series has been a smash hit all over the world and the spin-off albums - three so far - have sold by the truckload.

Writer Ryan had approached the band after the success of a one-off MADONNA special to see if he could do a Coldplay episode too.

But they said no way.

Canadian soft rocker BRYAN ADAMS also turned down the show - and has so far stuck to his guns.

Ryan explained: "At the beginning a lot of people didn't know what we were and asked to see scripts.

"I refused because I didn't want to set the precedent of them having any involvement.

"My favourite rejection was from Bryan Adams

Hit studio for fifth album to Coldplay

Coldplay will return to their recording studio today to finish their fifth album.
The group - consisting of Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion - have had several weeks off after spending two months holed up in an abandoned North London church working non stop on the new record.
They are now back at work, and intent on completing their as-yet-unnamed record as soon as possible.
The band members have kept extremely quiet about the style and contents of their new album, but one of their crew members has posted a long message on the topic on the group's website.
The blogger, known only as Roadie #42, said the new tracks are "killer", even though they are not finished.
"The songs haven't assumed their final beautiful form yet but they're a very long way from their skin and bones phase," he wrote. "What's impossible not to conclude is that they have some killer tunes."
Roadie #42 has previously revealed the band had written so much new material, they were struggling to decide what to put on the album.
Coldplay is hoping to release their new record at Christmas.

Coldplay: Berryman Starts Up Antiques Company

COLDPLAY rocker GUY BERRYMAN is set to establish himself as a businessman after launching an antiques dealership.
The bassist has teamed up with his brother Mark, a former chef, to create Berryman's Antiques. His sibling has moved to Sweden to find and restore Scandinavian furniture, which the duo then ships to the U.K.
The brothers then sell the pieces, which include tables, chairs and cabinets, on the internet to make a healthy profit.
A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "Their stuff sells for anything from a few hundred pounds to a few thousand."
