Chris Martin: Where's the respect?

Poor old Chris Martin is afraid that nobody sees his job as a craft any more:

The YELLOW singer has criticised the trend for mobile phone ringtones of chart tunes, insisting it is killing the current music scene. He says, "All that matters in music today is that your song becomes a ringtone."

Too true. The push for ringtones distorts the true value of music - which, in Coldplay's case, seems to be for being used as soundtracks for second-rate US medical soaps and team details on Match of the Day.
