Coldplay, who are currently on tour of the U.S., are planning to follow up 2008's Viva La Vida with a concept record -- and according to frontman Chris Martin it might not be any good! "The next one [album] will be quite stripped down and based upon this story idea, which I can't talk about because it might be bad," he told the Philadelphia Enquirer. "I think at the end of this tour, we may not tour for a while. We may put out a record without quite so much fanfare."
The last decade's biggest rock star truly loathed himself for his fame, and the result was tragic. Our current torchbearer dabbles in insincere apology for his ubiquity and the result is tacky. Yawn.
