Q. Dear Oracle,

If you were sitting in a theater that had all of its lights off and you heard two people playing piano and one them happened to be Chris Martin, would you be able to decipher between the two?


The Oracle replies:

I'd like to think yes. If they were both playing the same thing and I knew that one of them was Chris that is!
I think it's easier to decipher guitarists and sometimes drummers. Jonny certainly has a very distinctive sound and style. Outside of the band I reckon I'd easily be able to spot Prince on guitar, Flea (from Red Hot Chili Peppers) on bass & even Phil Collins on drums.
