Humble Coldplay star Chris Martin insists his band is the best on the world because U2 and Green Day are on vacation.
The British singer/songwriter admits his group will slip down the list of great bands once U2 and Green Day return with new albums in 2009.
Martin says, "The reason we're the biggest band in the world at the moment is because the others are on holiday. That's how you get your breaks. That's how the understudy gets his opportunity.
"While U2 and Green Day are away, we've gotten to make the most of it."
