Kooks Hail Coldplay As Best
The Kooks arent their only Celebrity fans
Kooks front-man Luke Pritchard told a British newspaper that he thinks Coldplay are the best band in the world.
Commenting on Coldplays latest number one album, Luke said that he was impressed: I love the whole thing theyve got going on, on this album with the Les Misrables theme, he said.
Taking his praise of the pop rockers to another level, Pritchard made a rather flattering comparison: Ive often wondered what it would have been like to see David Bowie in his Space Oddity days and even though its not as shocking, Coldplay have got a similar thing going on.
It seems that Luke isnt the band's only celebrity fan- Kirsten Dunst, Charlize Theron and supermodel Helena Christensen all turned out for Coldplays Madison Square Garden gig last night.
The band wowed 10,000 fans and in reference to the iPod advert that features their single, joked that good marketing had resulted in their first number one in the US.
Thousands of tickets were given away on their official website making it the third free show that Coldplay have performed in support of the new album Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends.
Luke Pritchard rubbished the criticism that Coldplay have received, arguing that its fashionable to criticise artists that have that much success: Its weird. How can people undermine them? To me Coldplay are other-worldly.
