Jonathan Mark Buckland (born 11 September 1977), known as Jonny Buckland, is the lead guitarist of the band Coldplay.

Early life

Buckland was born in Islington, London, and lived there until the age of four, when his family moved to Pantymwyn, North Wales. He was encouraged to enter the music scene by his elder brother, Tim, who is a big fan of My Bloody Valentine. Buckland started playing the guitar at the age of eleven, after being spurred on by The Stone Roses. Buckland attended Alun School in the Welsh town of Mold; moving on to study astronomy and mathematics at University College London, where he also met his future band mates and formed Coldplay.

Buckland's musical influences include Ride, George Harrison and Jimi Hendrix. He is noted for his sparse arrangements and use of slide. His stylistic chiming/ringing sound (evident in Coldplay's single "In My Place", for example) has led to many comparisons with the playing of U2's The Edge.Fact|date=June 2008

olo work

Buckland has guested on Ian McCulloch's solo album "Slideling" and made a cameo appearance with band mate Chris Martin in the film "Shaun of the Dead".

Personal life

Chris Martin often refers to him as "Jonny Boy" during live concerts, particularly if Buckland is about to do a solo or a long riff. Martin has said, "There would be no Coldplay music without Jonny Buckland.”Fact|date=June 2008 The affection between Martin and Buckland is often evident during live concerts and interviews, always with tongue firmly in cheek. Buckland is the godfather of Martin's daughter, Apple, the other being Simon Pegg.

He lives in London with his long-term girlfriend, jewellery maker Chloe Lee-Evans. They have a child together. [cite news|url=http://digital.spin.com/spin/200807/|title=Shine|last=Gross|first=Michael Joseph|date=July 2008|work=Spin|publisher="spin.com"|accessdate=2008-10-06|format=Web]
