We’ve all watched and rewatched the classic 70s film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory at least a hundred times through our childhood. Gene Wilder’s iconic performance as Willy Wonka has been, and will always be, remembered as one of the best characters in the history of cinema. With the passing away of Gene Wilder on August 28, the whole world is mourning the loss of a great actor.
At the recent performance in Denver, Coldplay paid tribute to the iconic star with a cover his very famous song from the same movie, ‘Pure Imagination’.

There’s a whole lot they’ve left to our imagination! And I guess that’ll be pure bliss.
