Michael J Fox and Coldplay Back to the Future

The British alternative rock group Coldplay is one of those bands that people either love or hate. However, even if you’re one of the people who just can’t stand the vocal stylings of frontman Chris Martin and the sounds the rest of the band plays, I think you’re going to love them for a little bit after to see a video recorded at a recent concert.

Chris Martin has a son named Moses who is 10 years old. And while the lead singer is out on tour, his son had just one request, and that was for him to play a song from their favorite movie, Back to the Future. Not only did Chris Martin make his son’s dreams come true, but he came through in a way that makes all other fathers look bad by having Michael J. Fox come out and play “Johnny B. Goode,” just like he did in the movie.

This is odd: a new story in The Mirror seems to be suggesting that Sacha Baron Cohen‘s Bruno is still a work in progress whereas just the other day we were talking about it’s submission to, and subsequent controversial certification by, the MPAA. Rather than presuming the entire story is bunkum, I’m thinking that The Mirror are just tangling a few things up or missing out the few facts that would help it all make sense. Either that or – shock horror – the MPAA are in the business of giving ratings to incomplete films.

Their report tells us that during the film, Bruno records a charity record called Dove of Peace. It’s reportedly a satire on the Band Aid-style collaborative charity track, and both Bono and Chris Martin have recorded contributions, with other stars lined up to take part too.
