    Coldplay: Shine On

    In a slightly sketchy part of north London, a cockney blonde whom we'll call Myrtle smokes a cigarette in the driveway of the plain white-fronted former bakery that serves as recording studio, office, and grown-up clubhouse for the members of one of the worlds' biggest bands, Coldplay.Myrtle says she works at the office next door, and when asked if the guys are good neighbors, she hedges. "I guess so.They're pretty quiet.Always comin' in and out with guitar cases and such."Raising one eyebrow, she confides, "They say they're musicians -- but you never hear any music comin' from there.Could be selling heroin for all I know.Or maybe they are musicians.I think they're just crap at what they do, is what I think." On this last point, Myrtle, despite her ignorance, speaks for many.
