Coldplay Perform At Steve Jobs Memorial

23 October 2011

British supergroup Coldplay have performed at Wednesday's (19 October) memorial service for late Apple Inc co-founder Steve Jobs.

The band has revealed that they jumped at the chance to honour the visionary ex-CEO, who passed away this month (Oct) after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, because his inventions like I-Tunes and the I-pod did a lot to help up and coming musicians.

The memorial service was held for Apple employees and took place in Cupertino, California.

Coldplay drummer Will Champion said of the bands decision to perform, "He (Jobs) was a pioneer and someone that helped us an awful lot. As we were coming up, he was always very supportive."

He went on to describe the mood at the memorial saying, "It was all the Apple employees and it was just a really heartfelt, beautiful ceremony."

Front man Chris Martin also added, "It was nice to see a big businessman, who people seemed to really love. He was a good guy as well as being a hardcore CEO."

Singer/songwriter Norah Jones was also a musical guest at the event.
