People are quite literally dropping like flies. I do Europe with staples holding my head together, Hoppy, Chris’s guitar-tech and Coldplay’s longest serving roadie, was injured during the Norwich show and is on crutches. (A man with a messed-up ankle being called Hoppy – the gags write themselves…). “The tour cold” starts doing the rounds and we’re thoroughly into the endurance phase of the album launch. – R42
Get well soon, R42 and Hoppy!
