Chris Martin says he's dissapointed that his marriage has ruined meeting superstars.
He says, "After being with Gwyn I've realised everyone is human.New "Beatle" track to be released.I must admit though since it was during rehearsal for the Concert for Bangladesh, I don't think that would make it a new Beatles track since only two were performing on it.
