Martin contracts Oasis Fever, I guess. What twits...some things are best left unsaid, even if you believe it. MACCA'S NOT FIT TO CLEAN MY SHOES ... SAYS COLDPLAY'S CHRIS MARTIN It could have been a rush of blood to the head, but Coldplay singer Chris Martin often thinks Paul McCartney isn't fit to clean his shoes. The shocking admission comes as Chris takes Britain's hottest band into rehearsals for their forthcoming headlining appearance at this year's 10th birthday T in the Park. And he says he isn't the only member of Coldplay - who have enjoyed two chart-topping albums - to rate themselves and their achievements above The Beatles. At least Chris is quick to point out he only thinks Macca should be his boot boy half the time. Chris, who rarely agrees to interviews, says, "It's a weird mix being in our band. One half of us thinks we're better than The Beatles, the other half thinks we don't deserve to have two people come to our shows, let alone two million. But, while part of me does think Paul McCartney should clean my boots, I must admit the other half thinks I should clean his. That keeps you kind of grounded." Chris, bassist Guy Berryman, guitarist Jonny Buckland and drummer Will Champion have enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame since the release of their 2000 album, "Parachutes." The band's follow-up, "A Rush Of Blood To The Head," has made huge inroads on both sides of the Atlantic. "Singles Trouble," "In My Place," "The Scientist" and runaway debut "Yellow" have all been hits. But the band are still some way off matching the credentials of Macca's old band - and that's putting it mildly. The Beatles had 17 No.1 singles, including 11 consecutive No.1's and were responsible for heavyweight classic albums "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club," "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver." Coldplay are yet to generate the kind of hysteria Macca and his bandmates once did, but their crowd-pulling power will definitely put smug smiles on the faces of T in the Park organizers.
