Guy Berryman, Will Champion join the band renamed "Starfish"
By 1997, the group, who had renamed themselves to Starfish, performed gigs for local Camden promoters at small clubs.
Martin also had recruited his longtime school friend Phil Harvey, who was studying classics at Oxford, to be the band's manager. (To this day, Coldplay consider Harvey to be the fifth member of the group.) The band's lineup was complete when Will Champion joined the band to take up percussion duties. Champion had grown up playing piano, guitar, bass, and tin whistle; he quickly learned the drums, despite having no previous experience.
