    Q. You said in a news post that Simon Pegg is Coldplay’s archenemy. Why is that? Is there a funny story?

    The Oracle replies:

    Yes, it’s only a bit of leg pulling. I guess it’ll make more sense if you listen to the archived Xfm show. The band and Simon have been friends for a long time and there’s been no drama at all.

    Q. Who is the boss in the band?

    The Oracle replies:

    There’s not a boss as such, they all try to make decisions together. If they ever struggle or can’t quite make up their mind, it’s actually Will who tends to have the final say.

    Q. At Coldplay’s store, Brazilans are not allowed to buy things. Will we be able to buy something there someday? When?

    The Oracle replies:

    The Coldplay official store ships internationally worldwide so Brazilians can buy things from there. For further help, see the shipping information here on the site.

    Q. If the bathroom can be used for bathing, can the poop deck be used for pooping?

    The Oracle replies:

    You watch Family Guy then…? Fabulous isn’t it? (For anyone who doesn’t, no you do not poop on the poop deck. It’s derived from the French word - la poupe).

    Q. Does Chris wear holes in his underarms as a fashion statement? I sure hope so bc I have holes in ALL my shirts now! Is that a fan or WHAT!!

    The Oracle replies:

    Body sweat can degrade material but did you know that some garments are made with holes left in them purely for ventilation?

    Q. On the cover of A Rush of Blood to the Head, it says; The Scientist is Dan. What does that mean?

    The Oracle replies:

    Dan Keeling was the guy who signed them to Parlophone. He was their A&R man before he moved on a few years ago. Dan not only bore inspiration for the song of the same name but also the album in terms of being quite harsh with his honest opinions during recording. Referring to him as The Scientist was a compliment even though The Scientist isn’t a biographical song about Dan.
