[pullquote quote="What I love about Ian, and obviously I love the Bunnymen and I love his singing, but also he's not scared of anyone."]“I’ve met various people who’ve made me more and more at peace with what I do musically with my friends. Tim Wheeler, Danny McNamara and other people, but with Mac because he’s so infamous and he’s so as you expect when you meet him, all cigarettes and sunglasses you’re sh*t-scared for a bit, but then you realise that what’s driving him is the same as what’s driving you and your band.”

“What I love about Ian, and obviously I love the Bunnymen and I love his singing, but also he’s not scared of anyone. He certainly doesn’t show it anyway. Whereas I’d say, ‘I’ve met David Bowie’, he’d say, ‘No, no, no. It’s David Bowie met me.’” I thought, ‘Right, yeah.’

“I used to try to buy him soup and we struck up a bizarre friendship…Mac sometimes has a drink and he’s harder to talk to then. When I was doing the vocals for ‘In My Place’ I was wearing his coat. He was sat there, really pissed on red wine. He just kept saying, ‘Go on, son. Go on.‘”-Chris Martin

“Lips Like Sugar”-Echo & The Bunnymen
