London: Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has opened up on the dark side of fame.

Chris, 34, has thrown his clean-cut, moderate image out of the window for the first time while talking about drugs, drinking and loneliness.

He has revealed that there’s a darker side to being in a band for 15 years. “Success and fame, alcohol and drugs – we’ve been through all of those things,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying. “They’re just pitfalls and that comes from a lot of travelling and a lot of down-time.”
