Chris Martin claims his love life would have been disastrous if it hadn't found fame with Coldplay.
The 'Paradise' singer - who is about to release the band's fifth studio album 'Mylo Xyloto' - is grateful for all the success and adulation being the frontman of the group has given him, especially the opportunity to meet his wife Gwyneth Paltrow.
Chris - who married the Oscar-winning actress in December 2003 - said: "I wouldn't even have a girlfriend if I wasn't in this band. I'm so grateful for my job; it's given me everything I have."
The 34-year-old British musician is famous for not speaking about his life with Gwyneth and their two children, daughter Apple, seven, and five-year-old son Moses, and he insists he prefers to give the spotlight to his Hollywood star wife.
In an interview with the USA Today newspaper, he said: "Maybe it's an English thing, but I prefer trying to keep quiet and out of the way. I'm happy for my wife to be the famous one. She's doing awesomely, and I'm very proud."
He explained: "It's an important part of our history that we spent our first year knowing each other just as friends, not playing music together. We have this kind of four-way marriage, and it's gotten closer over the years - even though our lives are much different now than they were 10 years ago."
