Quick News

Former Interpol bassist Carlos D. has revealed to BedfordandBowery that watching Coldplay on Saturday Night Live made him want to quit the band: "I think the moment for me, and it’s funny to think that this is the occasion for it, but when Coldplay – our old manager was Coldplay’s manager – played Saturday Night Live, he offered us tickets. And when I felt so much titillation and excitement over all the skits – Jon Hamm was the host – and looking at how they were being performed. And then when Coldplay came on, I felt bored, quite frankly. I knew then that there was something going on with me, some kind of identity shift, really. It really troubled me.” He also admitted that he had other issues while in the band as well. The former axe man also mentioned that he has not spoken to the members of Interpol since he left and has just finished studying acting at NYU.
