    Q. Mr./Mrs. Oracle, Why on earth doesn't Coldplay keep bootlegs of all of there shows? It would be quite awesome if I could get the soundboard recording of the show I was at. Point me in the right direction.

    The Oracle replies:

    I know what you mean but if Coldplay did keep soundboard recording they wouldn't be bootlegs as that term refers to illegal copies. As they are under contract with EMI, they couldn't just offer those recordings for sale and that's not a common practice. The free live album LeftRightLeftRightLeft is as near as you'll get to that I'm afraid but surely that's good enough?

    Q. It seems as though, in your latest blog, you posted a picture of what seemed to be acupuncture needles (and lighters for some reason). Does the band support the use of alternative treatments to keep them healthy on the road? As an acupuncturist in Washington State, it would be great to know that we are supported... See ya at the Ridgefield, WA show, let me know if you want a treatment :)

    The Oracle replies:

    They're not acupuncture needles, they are in fact sparklers and lighters! The band do support alternative treatments but obviously do whatever it takes to stay fit & healthy on the road.

    Q. I've heard Coldplay were inspired by Radiohead's album OK Computer. And I was just wondering if Coldplay were fans of Radiohead's post OK Computer music, given the large change in direction.

    The Oracle replies:

    They remain fans of Radiohead and see their change of direction as strokes of genius. They started their career in awe of the band and to be honest, that's probably still the case.
