In an interview with Conan O’Brien, Chris Martin of Coldplay credited Bruce Springsteen for his eating habits. He says he skips the before-show meal because that's what The Boss does.
Martin explained that when Coldplay was in Philly, he had lunch with Bruce and wife /bandmate Patti Scialfa and realized that Bruce (his elder) was in better shape than he was. As they started talking about it, he found out that Bruce only ate one meal a day.
Martin says he now skips what would be dinner and doesn’t eat after 4pm.
