The star was speaking on the Chris Moyles Show on BBC Radio 1 today (December 18) when he made the admission.
“It’s a blatant Jeff Buckley attempt,” he told Moyles. “Not quite as good, that’s what I think. We were 21 and he was very much a hero, and as with those things it tends to filter through.”
The frontman also revealed that he thinks the band’s recent London gigs should have been better. The band played the UK capital’s O2 Arena earlier this week (December 14, 15).
When Moyles asked the singer how he thought the London gigs went, Martin replied, “I would give them a three out of ten”.
However, the frontman did admit afterwards that he was notoriously difficult to please, saying that the score was “good for me”.
