    Sorry, but I have to disagree with you here. Fight the machine? Don't Coldplay, and bands like them, realize that they are the machine? There's nothing I hate worse than millionaire rock stars bitching and moaning about corporations, shut the fuck up and rock, that's what you make all those millions for you know? It's easy for someone with no money problems at all to wax poetic about how evil capitalism is, go out and get a real job and then come talk to me, ok! By the way, none of my rant was directed at you shermdawg, just venting a little.

    Yeah, I kinda hear ya. It's almost a catch 22. You really can't become a hugely popular band without the corporate help. On the other hand, you usually have very little control over everything if you are part of the corporate machine. I just like the fact that they seem to be using the "corporate machine" to get what they want - but because they are so huge right now, they can pretty much call the shots. Regardless, down with the machine!!!!

    What a bunch of dicks.

    If you don't like the corporate machine, don't sign with a major label. There are plenty of independants poping up every day. Pick one.

    So "shareholders are the great evil in the modern world" eh? Did Chris Martin think that up when he was buying his multi-million dollar home or when he was banging his movie star wife? You cry foul when shareholders look after their financial interest because it stifles your oh so precious artistic sensibilities, but guess what? That's how they make their money. The same money they pay you with. You won't see them protesting when they endorse those million dollar paychecks.

    It's easy to "Fight the machine" when you don't have to worry about your next paycheck isn't it.

    Coldplay needs to actually think before they release some statement. Junior brought a a great point about Chris Martin's use of money. I'm sure he has no problem recieving his boatloads of cash from EMI. That's a great example for people to "fight the machine"...
