I am Debs Wild, I discovered Coldplay and wrote a book about them. Ask Me Anything!
EDIT: 00.35 Tuesday 4 December. Thank you to everyone who took precious time out to ask me a genuine question. I tried to answer as many as I could but if I didn't answer, it may be that I'd already answered it so please have a read through the archived replies. Thank you again and remember, Taylor's words, "the haters gonna hate". Choose love. Debs. X
My name is Debs Wild. I have been working in the music industry for 23 years.
In 1998, I discovered an unknown band called The Coldplay. My boss passed on them but I was the first domino to fall by introducing them to their publisher and lawyer. This led to them getting signed and I have been part of their team ever since.
I also continued to work right across the music business in many roles but in 2017 I was approached to write a Coldplay book. With the band’s blessing and access to their archives as well as content from & interviews with their trusted inner circle, including Coldplay HQ, friends, crew, collaborators and peers, the book includes never seen before band member quotes from my personal interviews & images from the very start of their inception.
I’ll be answering questions about my book, my position within the Coldplay team and my career to date. Go ahead, reddit, AMA!
The book is now available from various retailers and signed (by me) copies are available my shop https://www.musicglue.com/debs-wild (sorry about the non-UK postage cost, it’s a very heavy coffee table book).

EDIT: THIS AMA IS NOW CLOSED AND I WILL NOT BE ANSWERING NEW QUESTIONS.
