Chris Martin: 'Coldplay's 'Shiver' Is Blatant Jeff Buckley Attempt'

December 18, 2008
Chris Martin: 'Coldplay's 'Shiver' Is Blatant Jeff Buckley Attempt'Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has suggested that one of the band's first songs was heavily influenced by Jeff Buckley.

In an interview with the BBC, Martin said 'Shiver', which featured on the band's debut album 'Parachutes', was “a blatant Jeff Buckley attempt”.

"Not quite as good, that's what I think. We were 21 and he was very much a hero, and as with those things it tends to filter through,” Martin added.

As previously reported, Martin also said in the interview that 'Violet Hill', a track from their most recent album 'Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends', had been inspired by The Beatles.
