As reported by London’s Daily Mirror, Martin first gave singing tips to the aspiring vocalist before asking him to leave the premises. “I had a guy the other day who climbed over the gate of our house and started singing Coldplay songs to his friends on the street,” Martin said.
The Coldplay frontman told the uninvited visitor, who had climbed a garden wall at the residence, that he wasn’t singing the songs correctly. “Listen, you’re just not doing that right,” he said. The trespasser complied without argument when Martin asked him to leave. “He politely left,” Martin said. “It was bordering on intrusion. Still, it’s nice that people like the songs.”
