If Former Beatle's a Couch, Coldplay's an Armchair

I'm not exactly sure what Sir Paul McCartney means when he metaphorically refers to Coldplay as an armchair, but when you're Sir Paul McCartney, you can say pretty much whatever you want. The following comes from Rolling Stone:
Paul McCartney says he left EMI after forty-five years because "Everybody at EMI had become part of the furniture. I'd be a couch; Coldplay are an armchair." In an interview with the U.K.'s Times, McCartney said the label became "boring" and he "dreaded going to see" executives there. He added that signing with Starbucks' Hear Music was also fueled by wanting to release music sooner than the six months EMI said was needed to market it.
I always thought of Coldplay as more of a loveseat myself.
