Gavin Rossdale says Coldplay's Chris Martin encouraged him to fulfil a dream

Musician, singer and 'The Voice' coach Gavin Rossdale has revealed that Chris Martin, of Coldplay fame, encouraged him to learn how to play piano. 

Chatting to Britain's Grazia magazine about his biggest regret, the Bush star explained that he was lucky enough to reverse it thanks to Coldplay's frontman: “That I didn’t learn piano from an early age. Chris Martin is a friend and he encouraged me to have lessons in my forties.”

He also confessed to being a fan of some of One Direction's songs and praised former member Zayn Malik's solo effort, adding: “There’s a bunch of One Direction songs that I think are really good. And Zayn (Malik’s 2016 album) Pillowtalk is probably the best record of last year."
