    Q. Dear Coldplay, A question, and a heartfelt thanks to you... I'm wondering why you selected my grandmother's (Barbara Moseley) dance video for your song The Hardest Part? I have loved your music since the beginning, and was so happy when you chose her video for so many reasons I can't explain here.. I will forever be in your debt for bringing her back to me in this way. Your music is poetry brought to life...most sincerely, Karen

    The Oracle replies:

    Wow! Awesome to hear from you Karen. How strange that I just read a question asking if Barbara was in fact a stunt woman! It wasn't actually the band who chose the clip; it was the video's director Mary Wigmore. I have answered a couple of questions about your Grandmother that you may have missed so have a look here and here. Thanks for getting in touch!

    Q. Hey Oracle, So I and my family was to the Coldplay concert yesterday in Herning Denmark. We were so lucky to get Will Champion's drumstick. Is there some way we can get that signed by all of the Coldplay members ? That would be the best thing ever. Sincerly Nicklas.

    The Oracle replies:

    Blimey Nicklas you don't ask for much do you? Not content with getting an amazing trinket but you want it signed too? No seriously, there's a quote that goes well with the fact you have a marvellous piece of memorabilia: "Collecting is the only socially commendable form of greed" - Eugene M Schwartz. Basically what I'm saying is that, no, it won't be possible I'm afraid but I should think yourself very lucky...

    Q. Dear Oracle, Do the guys ever listen to their own music when they are just hanging out?

    The Oracle replies:

    That would just be weird! I think when the guys are recording and getting ideas together it's important to listen back to the music but they wouldn't put their own CD on in the car once it's finished! They get to play the songs for real on tour so unless they're revisiting ideas for the live show, that'd be the only time. FYI: I went to a Simply Red aftershow party and later a few of us gathered in Mick Hucknall's suite and guess what he put on the stereo? Yep, his new album!
