Insomnia Fuels Chris Martin's Creative Process

Chris MartinColdplay frontman Chris Martin rarely shares a bed with wife Gwyneth Paltrow when he is writing music - because he works at night in a hidden corner of their London home.

The singer confesses the creative process is a tortuous one for him, and his best lyrics are often fueled by insomnia.

Martin, currently promoting the band's new album Viva La Vida, tells Rolling Stone magazine, "My problem is that I often take a sleeping pill in order to go to sleep, but then I get excited about a song, so I go and play music, and then it kind of kicks in halfway through. I have a little corner where nobody can hear me in the middle of the night, and that's where I spend most of the night times. I wake up the next morning and find these strange notes to myself. I'm a little bit ashamed about it."
