Q. Hello Oracle,
I was just wondering about what Paris said in the recent interview. He mentioned doing Will's drumkits for the tours. But in the Glastonbury interview, I thought Will didn't own any drumkits at all. Can you clarify the confusion?
Cheers from Malaysia!
p.s. When is Coldplay coming here? Massive fans here
The Oracle replies:
As Will didn't start off as a drummer, when the band met him he didn't have a kit. Obviously when they play live he is playing "his" drum kit - it's not on loan or anything - but he's never had a kit of his own.
Bless him, he obviously sees it as a band purchase but essentially that's what he means about not owning one.
