Russell Brand And Noel Gallagher Team Up For New Project















Russell Brand is making his radio comeback hosting a football show with pal Noel Gallagher.

It will be Russell’s return to the airwaves since quitting his BBC Radio 2 show in October after making prank calls to Fawlty Towers star Andrew Sachs.

His mate Noel will co-host the show on national chat station TalkSport so they can trade football banter, gags and insults.

A pal of Russell revealed yesterday: “TalkSport showed an interest pretty soon after Russell left his BBC show.

Movie

“He has now agreed but the exact details are yet to be confirmed.

It will be a one-off in the first instance but will become a regular show if it is a success.

“Obviously it will need to be fitted around Russell’s movie commitments in Hollywood.

“The fact he comes with Noel Gallagher is the icing on the cake.”

Swordsman Russell apologised and fell on his, erm, sword after the Sachsgate scandal where he and Jonathan ross left messages on Andrew’s answerphone about his fling with the actor’s granddaughter Georgina Baillie.

But I reckon he has served his time and personally I am pleased to hear his unique style back on the wireless.

His BBC show — on which Noel was a regular guest — was the best thing on the radio.

And for a man with silly hair who dedicates his life to his quest for my Bizarre Shagger Of The Year gong, West Ham fan Russell knows a fair bit about the beautiful game too.

And with Manchester City supporter Noel by his side the terrace banter will be much funnier than a season in the life of either of their beloved clubs.

It’s definitely a big coup for TalkSport which is fast gaining a reputation as the best place for witty radio chat.

Risks

Russell’s pal added: “It’s not about the money for Russell.

“He just loves talking football on the radio — especially with Noel.

“TalkSport is a good place for him too. The station will be prepared to work around his schedule and he will be able to take a few risks too.”

But I’m sure any granddaughter gags will be off limits.

On This Day In Oasis History...




















Standing on the Shoulder of Giants is the fourth studio album by the English rock band Oasis, released on February 28, 2000. In 1999, the year preceding the final release of this album, Oasis had lost two founding members (Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs and Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan) and hired a new producer (Mark "Spike" Stent). As a result of these changes, the album's tone was more experimental, with electronica and psychedelic influences. The darker feeling and psychedelic tone of this album is a departure from earlier Britpop-influenced Oasis records.

Songs such as the Indian-influenced "Who Feels Love?", the progressive "Gas Panic!" and the electronica "Go Let It Out" depart from Oasis' old Britpop style. The album was the sixth fastest selling album in UK chart history, selling over 310,000 copies in its first week. Despite becoming their fourth number one album in the UK, it is one of the band's lowest-selling albums, selling only 3 million copies worldwide.

Trivia

The album's title was taken from the words of Sir Isaac Newton: "If I can see further than anyone else, it is only because I am standing on the shoulders of giants". Noel Gallagher saw the quote on the side of a £2 coin whilst in a pub and liked it so much he thought it would be a suitable name for Oasis' new album. He then wrote the name on the side of a cigarette packet whilst drunk. When he awoke in the morning, he realised he had written "Standing on the Shoulder of Giants — A Bum Title".

Due to the departure of Bonehead and Guigsy from the band whilst the album was in production, their parts had to be re-recorded, for legal reasons. Thus, the album only features the Gallagher brothers and Alan White. The sleeve of the album also features them.

The first track, "Fuckin' in the Bushes", is featured on the soundtrack for the film Snatch, and is regularly used in introductions for high-tempo events, due to its quick tempo and loud volume.

In the April 2006 issue of Q magazine, the album was the only Oasis record to feature in a countdown of the "50 worst albums of all time". It was placed at number 46 and described as "the low point of their fallow years", despite the fact that the album had been favourably reviewed in the magazine at its time of release and featured in the magazine's "50 Best Albums of 2000" list. In response to the Q feature, Noel has said, "Even though it wasn't our finest hour, it's a good album born through tough times. I worked harder on that album than anything before and anything since."

A notable B-Side was Lets All Make Believe. This song was on the Go Let It Out single and is said to be one of the bands finest songs. Q Magazine declared it the greatest ever "lost" track in the February 2007 issue and said that if it was on the album it would have carried "an extra star" on the review. Q gave this album 4 Stars back in 2000, meaning an extra star would be 5 stars. So with Lets All Make Believe on the album, according to Q magazine's logic, SOTSOG would have been a 5 star classic.









Track listing

01: "Fuckin' In The Bushes"
02: "Go Let It Out"
03: "Who Feels Love?"
04: "Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is"
05: "Little James"
06: "Gas Panic!"
07: "Where Did It All Go Wrong?"
08: "Sunday Morning Call"
09: "I Can See A Liar"
10: "Roll It Over"

Demos

A bootleg of demo sessions recorded for this album was leaked onto the internet in January 2000. Most of these songs were recorded by Noel Gallagher with the help of a couple of friends in his home studio at Supernova Heights and at Oasis' own Wheeler End Studios complex. All of the songs, apart from "Little James", were sung by Noel.

The tracklisting of the demo bootleg is:

"Carry Us All"
"Who Feels Love?"
"Fuckin' in the Bushes"
"Little James"
"Gas Panic!
"Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is"
"Sunday Morning Call"
"I Can See a Liar"
"Go Let It Out"
"Roll It Over"
"Revolution Song"
"Where Did It All Go Wrong?"
"(As Long As They've Got) Cigarettes in Hell"
"Just Getting Older"
"Let There Be Love"

At the time of the leak, four songs ("Carry Us All", "Revolution Song", "Just Getting Older" and "Let There Be Love") were not scheduled for release on either the album or as B-sides on the new single "Go Let It Out". These songs were also completely undocumented, apart from "Revolution Song", which had been mentioned by author Paolo Hewitt in his 1999 book Forever the People — Six Months on the Road with Oasis. As such, these four songs had made-up titles based on commonly-repeated phrases mentioned in the songs. Whilst "Carry Us All" and "Just Getting Older" were correctly guessed, the other two tracks were given titles which, in time, would prove to be incorrect. "Revolution Song" was given the title "Solve My Mystery" and "Let There Be Love" was given the title "It's a Crime". "Let There Be Love" was released on Don't Believe the Truth. Because Noel mentioned in a February 23, 2000 interview with Melody Maker magazine that "Revolution Song" had been demoed — but not released because Blur had recently released a similar sounding song — it can be assumed that these titles are correct.

Currently, only one song ("Revolution Song") remains commercially unreleased.

Liam Gallagher: 'I'm More Special Than Jose Mourinho'



Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has claimed he is more “special” than Inter Milan manager Jose Mourinho, who is nicknamed 'The Special One'.

Gallagher told Portuguese TV station Top+ that he was a fan of the former Chelsea manager, but doubted his 'special' abilities.

The singer also said he expected the band to begin work on their next album shortly after the conclusion of their world tour.

"He's a dude and I like him," Gallagher said when asked about Mourinho. "He's cool man. And he's got passion. But he's not as special as me though."

Speaking about the band's next album, Gallagher said he believed the group would be able to complete half of the project if they entered the studio now.

He added: "Personally, after the tour I think we should have a couple of months off - not too long, maybe six months.

“Then I think we should go back in the studio, make another album. But it's not down to me, you know what I mean, because I'm not a solo artist."

Oasis' world tour will call in the UK this summer for a series of stadium shows.

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's tour diary for oasisinet.com

Well, well, well - so these little text messages have now become "award-winning", eh? Oh, the irony! Irie Nancy finds the whole thing rather amusing, considering that I've yet to go within 10 feet of a computer let alone own one of the blasted things.

The Best Dressed Award was not to be and I guess Mr. Obama was arguably more deserving of Hero status. But all in all, a tidy little haul, I think.

Thanks again if you voted.

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's awarding winning tour Diary for oasisinet...

So. Where have we been then? Been to Bolzano, which is in Italy, but it used to be part of Austria and everyone speaks German!! Wonder if that causes problems during the World Cup?

Been doing a lot of Asian interviews of late. On the phone. I hate speaking on the phone, never mind being interviewed on the bloody thing. Saying that, I did impress a lady from Hong Kong with my knowledge of the 60s Hong Kong music scene - there actually was one! Teddy Robin And The Playboys - a tune called "Magic Colours" - amazing! I plan to cover it one day and turn it into a smash hit.

A Chinese journalist asked me did I have a message for "Chinese fan" ahead of our up-coming Chinese tour?

"Erm..not really"
"Nothing? Nothing you want to say?"
"Just tell 'em to watch out - Oasis are coming"
"Ok", she says. "I tell Chinese fan to wash it out!"

Left Italy behind last night in Florence. Before the show I overheard a frankly bizarre conversation between Tall Scratch and The Shroud, which went as follows:

T.S. - "I'm thinking of 'going commando' for the gig tonight."
Sh. - "Really? Why?"
T.S. - "Just to see what it feels like."
Me - (?!?!?!?!?)

Now, I'm all for a bit of bohemia, etc., but doing a gig with no underpants on?! Come on!? Is that what it's come to? That kinda shit leads to "other things" and it's a bit Carl Barat, to say the least..(more of that later).

For those of you who listened to the gig on the radio, I apologise. Think it sounded like a bit of a mess. Shame to end the Italian bit with a whimper. Still, them Italian kids fuckin' rule. See you at Wembley, if you're coming. FORZA ITALIA!!

It's the NME awards today. We got the award for the best band. Thanks very much if you voted for that. Best dressed man is the one I really wanted though. If only to annoy Romeo.

Today I am mostly in Vienna, Austria. Night off tonight. Gonna go to an Irish bar with the crew and hopefully watch Liverpool get put in their place by Real Madrid.

Now, it turns out the Scratch wasn't talking about his undies, he was talking about his.... EAR PLUGS!! He wears ear plugs and he was taking THEM out for the gig! Phewee! For a minute there I thought..well, actually, now I think about it, I don't know what's worse; the thought of someone doing the gig sans underwear or the fact that there are actually EAR PLUGS being worn onstage!

In a-fukin'-bit.

Liam Gallagher 'I Don't Want To Go On Stage Sounding Like A Fookin Idiot'












'Why do you think I don't like journalists?" asks a mystified Liam Gallager when I tell him that my intention is to make our telephonic interview as painless as possible.

"Young man, I have followed your career since the beginning," I reply. "And, besides, its no secret."

He is quick to respond: "I don't hate all journalists. I'm just not into talking, so I say it once, then it's over. It's hard."

Looking back over the years, the media circus that is Oasis, particularly back in the '90s, was certainly created by the lead singer of the band and his temperamental brother, Noel.

From fisticuffs between the two to cocaine parties and hot models, the Gallagher brothers were probably more famous for their lifestyles than their music. They publicly dissed each other. They publicly dissed Blur as well as the US grunge movement and, more recently, they refused to be on the same bill as Coldplay.

Last year, Noel also had a dig at the organisers of the Glastsonbury Festival for booking rapper Jay-Z as a headline act. "Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music. I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong," he said.

Jay-Z in return had a dig at Noel on his latest album, Blueprint 3: "That bloke from Oasis says I can't play guitar. Somebody should have told him I'm a f***ing rock star," before breaking into a line from the Oasis hit, Wonderwall: "Today is gonna be the day that I throw it all back to you."

At best, the Gallagher brothers' behaviour can be described as laddish. At worst, they were rude yobs who had scant respect for anyone and when the pressure became too much they viciously turned on the media, which in turn created more paparazzi fodder.

Liam, in particular, developed a nasty reputation - kinda like the Wayne Rooney of Britpop.

So, obviously I approached the interview with some trepidation. But to my surprise, the man was honest, funny, at times self- deprecating and spontaneous.

Many world-famous musicians are guarded and give record- company-trained responses. Clearly, these training methods did not work on Liam. I speculate he probably told the little record company's PR poppie to get knotted in not-so-polite language.

The interview became more of a banter than anything else.

"I'm in Marseilles, in France," Liam says in his thick Manchester accent. "We're playing a gig tonight."

"So, have you guys ever been to South Africa?"

"No, but my dentist is South African. He says it's great. He's actually coming to watch us when we play there."

Oh cool, I guess.

"Do you know, I have never met a South African girl before. You're the first. I'm fookin' serious. This is history."

"So you'll never forget me, Liam."

"No, I won't."

My heart skips a beat.

"Aside from playing the fest what are you planning to do in SA, cage diving with the sharks?

"I can't swim, but I think we're staying on in Cape Town for about three days after the tour."

"What can fans expect from Oasis in concert?"

"The coolest rock 'n roll band in the world. We gonna be banging it out. But we don't jump around. There's no pirate sex or anything. We just do the tunes."

"Did you ever think you'd still be doing Oasis after everything that has happened in your career?"

"Yeah, I did, but I thought we'd be a lot bigger. People are just being stubborn. Fookin' arbs. It's like, c'mon man!"

Somewhere in the back of my mind I think, well maybe if you hadn't shoved so much marching powder up your nose and maybe if you and Noel hadn't … nah …

"Liam, on your latest album, Dig Out Your Soul, you wrote most of the music. Have the dynamics in the band changed?"

"I don't trust myself as a song- writer, I'm definitely the singer. But everything in the band is still the same. I'm much more worried about my voice. For years I never warmed up before a concert. I'd just stand around smoking and stuff.

"But people spend lots of money to see us and I respect that. I don't want to go on stage sounding like a fookin' idiot. Now I drink herbal drinks and shit."

"And honey?"

"Yeah, honey. I fookin' hate it."

"You don't party so hard now?"

"We still have a laugh and party, but we've slowed down."

"Do you know who's performing with you in South Africa?"

"I don't care, but I suppose you're gonna tell me anyway."

"Liam, Do you want to know or not?"

"Yeah, go on, tell me."

"Panic at the Disco."

"Ah, they're fookin' rubbish."

"Snow Patrol?"

"Ooh, I like them. Some of them are my mates.

"I can't remember the names of the others."

"That's because they're probably fookin' rubbish."

Liam, do you enjoy your job?

"I fookin' love it. I wake up and piss around all day and then I go on stage at 9pm. I wouldn't have a clue what to do outside of this. I think we're important as a band.

"Okay, now that the bullshit is out the way, it's purely financial reasons. So the lads can go on holiday, or buy a new house. But I'm the biggest fan of the band."

Wow, methinks somewhere between the fame and the fights, Liam has grown up.

Coming Soon




















Early next week we will be posting an exclusive Q&A with Noel Gallagher on a range of different subjects.

I was lucky enough to be allowed to do an email interview with Noel and asked him numerous questions covering the band now and when I first saw them in 1994, the lack of B-sides on the first two singles from Dig Out Your Soul, Russell Brand, Ricky Hatton, Dizzee Rascal and about changing the set-list for the upcoming UK stadium tour and much more.

Check back early next week for the exclusive interview...

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's tour diary for oasisinet.com

Spent the day in bed yesterday nursing a bad head. For some reason I watched MTV’s European Top 10. Fuck me, it was painful. Leona Lewis doing Snow Patrol? Ouch! Kings Of Leon doing U2? Ouch! The Killers doing fancy dress? Ouch! Lady Gaga? (I may be showing my age here but who’s Lady Gaga?). It made my teeth hurt! MY TEETH!!

That interview with The Sunday Times fella was great. He was good fun. Not often you can say that about a journalist.

Still in Venice. Leaving shortly. I genuinely have no idea where I’m going. Are we staying in Italy? I hope so. These kids make for amazing gigs.

Wonder how “the shoes” are getting on? I’ll find out soon enough.

Interview With Liam Gallagher And Andy Bell

Falling Down - All The Details..



















Oasis have confirmed the formats and extra tracks on their forthcoming single ‘Falling Down’.

The brand new Noel Gallagher-penned song 'Those Swollen Hand Blues' features in addition to various remixes of the single.

The Prodigy have twisted the track into new sonic forms whilst Marilyn Manson bassist Twiggy and Dave Sardy, who previously collaborated on a remix of 'I'm Outta Time', have created a new dance-floor filler!

Readers of Noel's 'Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere' will also be aware of the remix by Amorphous Androgynous who have delivered a 22 minute epic version of ‘Falling Down’. In a recent entry, Noel described it as, ‘A staggering piece of music. Monumental even. All superlatives will apply”.

The single is released in the UK on Monday 9th March (8th March digitally) and is taken from the band's number one album, 'Dig Out Your Soul'.

Liam Gallagher's Black Mood













Noel Gallagher says his brother Liam is like the "blackest winter ever".

The Oasis rocker believes he is far more optimistic than his sibling bandmate, and claims Liam - who he has repeatedly clashed with over the years - often has a gloomy effect on people.

When asked what season he is most like, Noel said: "I am eternally spring. But my brother Liam is like the blackest winter ever."

The guitarist went on to analyse people who compare themselves to other seasons, saying: "Anyone who chooses autumn must be a geography teacher. People who chose summer are not to be trusted. I chose spring because that is when my birthday is."

The 41-year-old musician also revealed his 17-month-old son Donovan, whose mother is Noel's long-term partner Sara MacDonald, already has a strong personality.

He added: "He is the greatest human being I have ever met in my life. He really is just laugh a minute."

Noel - who also has an eight-year-old daughter, Anais, with ex-wife Meg Mathews - revealed Donovan is trying to get to grips with what his rock star dad does for a job.

He explained: "He doesn't really understand my job. All he sees is that one minute I am there and the next minute I am gone."

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's tour diary for oasisinet.com

FORZA ROMA!! What a gig. Up there with best so far. Loud, loud, loud!!

Woke up in Venice this morning. 6.45 am. Had to get a boat to our hotel. Sailed through the "streets" then across the river just as the sun was rising up like a fuzzy tennis ball in the haze. What a beautiful way to start the day.

Being interviewed by The Sunday Times today. Wonder how long it'll take the geezer to mention Tony Blair? 30 mins, I reckon.

Got a day off here tomorrow. Should be interesting getting on that boat drunk later. Wonder if Mohamed al-Fayed's shoes will get wet? I'll let you know.

In a bit.

Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere





Taken from Noel's tour diary for oasisinet.com

Ciao.

We're in Rome. It's great to be back. I forget how much I love this town. Very pleasing to the eye. Noisy though. Was everyone born tooting a fuckin' horn here, or what?

Watched Man City last night. Fuckin' blew it in the last minute. Feel sorry for Sparky. Some of our players are dopey. Still, 2-2 away from home's not bad.

They had Sky News at the hotel. I kept seeing re-runs of The Brits. My God, you could smell the cheese from the Colosseum.

Bang-up for this gig tonight. If memory serves me correctly we smashed it here last time. There may have been a small riot!

I have to go. A pair of Mohamed al-Fayed's shoes have just arrived.

You Gotta Row With It Liam Gallagher




















Some Might Say rowdy Liam Gallagher bit off more than he could chew when he had a one-to-one with a giant snapper.

The Oasis star got set to square up after he was caught on camera chatting to a blonde in a restaurant.

Furious Liam – who has a history of scuffling with photographers – charged out, apparently spoiling for a fight.

But things changed when he discovered the awesome size of his opponent.

The cameraman, six inches taller than the singer and about twice his weight, towered over him.

Liam, 36, waved his arms around and swapped a few choice words – then went in for a hug instead and got a friendly pat and a smile from his would-be rival. The snapper had upset the star when he took a picture as Liam relaxed with pals after a gig in Rome.

“The whole scene was really funny,” said an onlooker. “Liam was chatting to a girl who was in his group of pals and was furious when he thought their picture had been taken.

“He came hurtling out to take on the photographer but was dwarfed as soon as he stood next to him.

“It seemed like he’d had a few drinks and there was a bit of a confrontation, but he quickly thought better of it.

“Liam even showed his softer side by making up with the man. He has this image of a hardman but perhaps he is more interested in a cuddle nowadays.”

Oasis - Falling Down Single Review



A remix of this tune has already been released as a B-Side from 'The Shock Of The Lightning' but that doesn't concern the likes of Noel Gallagher, and lets face it two singles have come off 'Dig Out Your Soul' and Noel has not been lead vocals on either. It seems that single number three will be a Noel sung track, and what better song than 'Falling Down'.

Normally Mr Gallagher senior does like a sing a long tune that everyone can bellow along too after nine, ten or eleven pints, but this time he has really hit the nail on the head with a glorious track. With The Chemical Brothers remix 'Falling Down' is a superb track, without the remix it is just as strong and you find yourself arguing with yourself on which version is better, because you don't dislike either.

In reality love or hate this band it will be a sad day in British music when these guys decide to call it a day, Oasis are the real deal and although they have a lot to answer for, for many s**t bands forming because of them, they are still legendary.

Sorry droogs. Forgot about you lot!

Now then - what's been happening?

Well, we went to Lisbon. I thought it wouldn't get any better than Barcelona and Madrid - how wrong I was. I think it was my favourite night of the whole tour so far. It may well have been the best gig too. Them kids sang it LOUD, man.

Gave our disc-jockey a lesson in heavy psychedelic rock music in the dressing room afterwards. I really should try my hand at that dj'ing malarky. I'd be fuckin' brilliant.

Left the people of Lisbon with a message of love for José Mourinho. We really do need him back in England. Preferably at Man City.

We were in Toulouse last night (that's in France, if anyone's reading this from The Daily Star). Them French kids are a bit more laid back than their Latino cousins. A quiet gig.

Watched 'Scarface' last night on the bus. Suddenly dawned on me that it's the first time I've seen it since "the 90s" and not been acting out nearly every scene with Tony Montana - political refugee. (I never did get that tiger I promised myself). Great film though.

I send you this message from Marseille (that's also in France). Gig tonight, then onto our spiritual home ITALIA.

On This Day In Oasis History...



















"Don't Look Back in Anger" is a song by the British rock band Oasis, written by the band's guitarist, Noel Gallagher. Released as the fourth single from their hit second album (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, on February 19th 1996.

The song became the band's second single to reach #1 in the United Kingdom charts, where it also went platinum. "Don't Look Back in Anger" was also the first Oasis single to feature Noel on lead vocals instead of his brother, Liam Gallagher. The title is perhaps a play on the song "Look Back in Anger", from David Bowie's Lodger album or on the play, Look Back in Anger by John Osborne, from which Bowie's song took inspiration.

Music video

The video for the song, directed by Nigel Dick, features Patrick Macnee, the actor who played John Steed in the 1960s television series The Avengers, apparently a favourite of the band. While filming the video, drummer Alan White met future wife Liz Atkins. They were married 13 August 1997 at Studley Priory Hotel, Oxfordshire but later divorced. Macnee has no recollection of the filming of the video.



History

Noel said of the song, "[It] reminds me of a cross between All the Young Dudes and summat the Beatles might've done." Of the character "Sally" referred to in the song he commented, "I don't actually know anybody called Sally. It's just a word that fitted, y'know, might as well throw a girl's name in there. It's gotta guarantee somebody a shag off a bird called Sally, hasn't it?". Noel claims that the character "Lyla", from Oasis' 2005 single is the sister of Sally. In the interview on the DVD released with the special edition of Stop the Clocks, Noel also revealed that a girl approached him and asked him if Sally was the same girl as in The Stone Roses' track "Sally Cinnamon". Noel replied that he'd never thought of that, but thought it was good anyway.

Noel admits that certain lines from the song are lifted from John Lennon: "I got this tape in the United States that had apparently been burgled from the Dakota Hotel and someone had found these cassettes. Lennon was starting to record his memoirs on tape. He's going on about 'trying to start a revolution from me bed, because they said the brains I had went to my head.' I thought 'Thank you, I'll take that'!" "Revolution from me bed" most likely refers to Lennon's infamous bed-ins in 1969, both in the quote and in the song. The piano during the intro of the song highly resembles Lennon's "Imagine". Like many other popular songs,the chord progression for both the verse and the chorus are based on the classical piece Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel. The songs only differ slightly at the end of each phrase. Gallagher also admits that he was under the influence of substances when he wrote the song, and to this day he claims he does not know what it means.

The song has become a favourite at Oasis' live performances. Noel encourages the crowd to sing along and often keeps quiet during the chorus, allowing the fans instead to sing along while he focuses on his guitar playing. The volume of crowd noise that usually descends on the chorus at concerts is easily audible on the rendition of "Don't Look Back in Anger" on Familiar to Millions. During the Dig Out Your Soul Tour the song has been played acoustically at a slower rate by Noel. Which surprised some fans, but it is still sung by all the fans.

In a 2006 radio interview, Liam Gallagher said that it was he who came up with the line "so Sally can wait" as Noel was struggling with that particular line at the time. Noel confirms this on the bonus DVD, entitled Lock the Box, released with the Stop the Clocks retrospective album. In the interview with Colin Murray, Noel admits, "I was doing it in the sound check and the so Sally bit, I wasn't singing that...and he [Liam] says, 'Are you singing so Sally can wait?' and I said, 'No.' and he said, 'Well you should do.'"

Noel was so excited of the potential of the song when he first wrote it, he used an acoustic set to perform a work-in progress version, without the second verse and a few other slight lyrical differences to the finished version, at an Oasis concert at the Sheffield Arena on April 22, 1995, saying before playing that he'd only written it the previous Tuesday (April 18, 1995) and that he didn't even have a title for it.

Liam Gallagher: Coldplay They Win Everything Don't They?

















Liam Gallagher has tipped Coldplay to clean up at the Brits - saying they would probably even be crowned best new female act.

Coldplay were nominated for four Brit awards and earlier this month they bagged three Grammy awards, including song of the year.

Liam called in to Johnny Vaughan and Liam's wife Nicole Appleton, who was standing in for Lisa Snowdon on the 95.8 Capital FM Breakfast Show, to give his Brits predictions. Asked who should win the British album gong, Liam said: "Personally, I'd go with the Ting Tings."

But asked who would win, Liam said: "Well who do you think? Coldplay! They win everything don't they? They'd win the best new female act won't they!"

In the British group stakes, Johnny asked Liam if he was a Girls Aloud fan.

The Oasis frontman replied: "Not really no!

"They're all right, you know what I mean? Some of their tunes are all right!

"Coldplay have got to win it haven't they, I suppose."

In the British male solo artist category, Gallagher tipped: "Paul Weller man!

"Ian Brown is a dude, I like them all. I think James Morrison is a top songwriter. Ian Brown is obviously the man but I think Paul Weller should get it man, his album is mega!"

Women Don't Want Men Like Liam Gallagher




















Women say the British man is a disappointment - with failings epitomised by the likes of Liam Gallagher and Russell Brand.

While beer bellies are a turn off, so too is the Neanderthal way modern men walk with slouched shoulders and slumped posture, with the Oasis frontman a typical example.

Neither do they like the ultra-skinny look of Russell Brand, said the research by specialist shoemaker MBT, with 98 per cent of women not liking men in eyeliner and skinny jeans.

Half of women believe both the posture and masculinity of men have worsened from their father's day, said a new study.

Although men may walk like cavemen, they don't behave like them - and women are tiring of the `metrosexual', guy-in-touch-with-his-emotions image too.

What they want is a gentleman, perhaps slightly flawed, but one who stands tall such as fictional figures like James Bond to Mr D'Arcy to rifleman Sharpe.

What they don't want is a slouch, with 94 per cent turned off by knuckle-draggers.

Taken from Noel's Tour Diary for oasisinet

Alright there. Phew! Barcelona was a great gig. And a great night. Free Peace are still having it. Tuff Levi turned up. Played us some of his new tunes. Sounded great the first couple of times then it got a bit silly. Must've heard 'em 20 times in a row! All good though.

Couple of Swedish friends of ours were in town (they're DJs). Me, The Prophet, Romeo, Levi and a few stragglers went to some discotheque they were playing at after the show. A good night. If I remember correctly (which I don't!).

Currently in Lisbon. Dunno much about the place. We don't seem to come here often. Or do we? Fuck knows.

It's a nice day though.

Noel Gallagher's Manchester City Band



















Noel Gallagher wants to form a Man City-supporting band to record an official club song.

The rocker says: “It wouldn’t be a bad supergroup — Johnny Marr, Billy Duffy, Doves, Damon Gough, Mike Pickering and Rick Wakeman. And don’t dis Rick — he’s one of us.

“There’s a guy out of the Super Furry Animals and two guys out of The Coral too.”

He adds: “I’d probably also say yes to doing an FA Cup Final record too — then sober up and say, ‘Hang on a minute, I can’t be writing an FA Cup song’.

Liam Gallagher's Flop Of The Chops



















I can't decide which is more outrageous – Liam Gallagher’s monster sideburns or his fancy footwear.

The Oasis wildman was snapped heading out for a Valentine’s Day meal with wife Nicole Appleton at London celeb haunt The Ivy.

His mutton chops give Elvis Presley's a run for their money.

And Jimmy Savile would love those leopard-skin shoes.

Liam jetted home to be with his missus from Barcelona, where Oasis played a show on Friday.

Then he had to head off again to Lisbon to play the next gig in their Dig Out Your Soul Tour last night.

Liam must have been All Shook Up after all that dashing around.

He probably thinks he looks like The King with those burners – but I reckon he looks more like Amos Brearly from Emmerdale.

Are Oasis Going To Split?













Oasis are on the verge of splitting after gobby Liam Gallagher’s relationship with his brother Noel hit an all-time low.

The pair are putting on a united front for their fans during their current world tour.

But the Daily Star Sunday can reveal that off stage the Gallaghers are avoiding one another at all costs.

And fans fear the split could come as soon as they finish their world tour.

Guitarist Noel, 41, laid bare the breakdown by confessing as he jetted into Madrid on Thursday: “I haven’t spoken to my brother for two years.”

Last night a source close to the band, currently in France ahead of a two-month tour of the Far East, said: “Noel and Liam have always had a stormy relationship but things have never been this bad.

“They can’t stand being in the same room together, let alone speaking to each other.

“Noel has already talked about leaving Liam and going solo when the current tour ends but we’re worried things won’t get that far. They’ve been on the road since last August and the stress of being in each other’s pockets is definitely taking its toll.”

The source added: “Sometimes I wish they’d just have a good punch-up like in the old days.

“Watching two grown-up men talking to each other through their roadies when they have to communicate is pretty ridiculous.

“It’s a wonder they manage to perform so well when they’re on stage. This looks like the last tour.”

An insider at the Gallaghers’ hotel in Spain said: “Noel and Liam looked as if they were going out of their way to avoid each other.

“The only time I saw them together was when they checked in and they seemed more like arch-enemies than brothers from the look on their faces.

“They didn’t even get the lift up to their rooms together and they ordered their room service separately so they obviously ate apart. They were supposed to see some music journalists together but even that didn’t happen because Liam never showed.”

Noel broke Liam’s foot after a fight with a cricket bat during recording sessions for their second album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?

The pair fought again in Barcelona in 2000 when Liam, 36, insulted his brother’s then wife Meg Mathews.

Noel declared he was quitting overseas touring but returned for an Oasis gig in Dublin later the same year and shook Liam’s hand at the end of the performance.

He recently declared all he cared about is whether Liam can still sing.

The split fears come as Oasis prepare for their first trip to China next month.

They are then due to play in Manchester, Sunderland, Cardiff and Edinburgh in June before gigs at Coventry and London in July.

Winners And Losers: Rock Star Brothers




















There's always a black sheep in every family. It's inevitable, a law of nature. Have more than one kid, and someone will be left with a short deck.

For brothers, it's even worse. You're either the "cool" brother or the "other" brother. There's no way around it.

And if your brother is a rock star? Not pretty. The only thing worse is being the brother of a President (see Billy Carter, Roger Clinton, and President Obama's weed-smoking Kenyan half-brother).

Even when you're lucky enough to share a band, if you're the "other" brother, at best you'll be considered unobtrusive wallpaper (is anyone looking at Angus' older brother, Malcolm, during an AC/DC concert?), and at worst, everyone is waiting for your cool brother to ditch the band and make a solo record.

Sure, there are the odd lightning-strikes-twice exceptions. Noel and Liam Gallagher are equally obnoxious and equally ego-fuelled. It's hard to imagine the Everly Brothers as the Everly Brother, and the Kinks would be nothing without Ray and Dave Davies pissing each other off over the years.

But that's the extent of the rock brothers with equal talent billing. For everyone else, there just isn't enough musical mojo to go around. There are winners and losers. Here are some of the biggest winners and their less-fortunate siblings.

WINNER: PETE TOWNSHEND
The Who's songwriter, guitar god, and visionary is a rock legend. He's been given every conceivable award and had his songs live on TV crime shows, Broadway, and "Guitar Hero." Any self-respecting rock fan or budding rock star must kiss his guitar pick at some point.

LOSER: SIMON TOWNSHEND
Pete's younger brother released three solo albums that were met with less fanfare than say... a solo Pete Townshend album. In 2004 he formed the band Casbah Club with dudes from the Jam and Big Country. Oh, and there's his day job: playing second guitar on Who tours.

WINNER: MICK JAGGER
He's arguably one of the most influential rock singers and frontmen of the 20th century. He made chicken dancing look cool, and he dares you to tell him it's not OK to sing "Satisfaction" to his grave.

LOSER: CHRIS JAGGER
Chris has a group of his own called Chris Jagger's Atcha! Blues Band. In 2007 Chris' brother did join Atcha! for a cover of the Stones' "Dead Flowers" at a local pub. Apparently, it didn't help bookings. On his website, Chris says he "enjoys spending as much time as possible outdoors, looking after animals, and creating a garden with 'anything you can eat.'" No tour dates listed.

WINNER: EDDIE VAN HALEN
Although one could debate about how much of a winner Eddie is these days, he's rightfully claimed his spot as one of the most influential guitarists of his generation — even if he does have bad luck with lead singers.

LOSER: ALEX VAN HALEN
When the Van Halen kids were growing up, Eddie played drums while Alex played guitar. Maybe he actually plays guitar better than Eddie. Rumor has it that Alex has become an ordained minister so he can preside over his brother's wedding. Hopefully, it will lead to a new career that doesn't involve a gong.

WINNER: KEVIN BACON
Personally, I like my Bacon on the screen more than on the concert stage. Still, there's no denying that the younger Bacon brother has rock star charisma. Plus, how can you NOT be cool when everyone in Hollywood is only six degrees of separation away from you?

LOSER: MICHAEL BACON
When you're the lesser-known half of a side project, things are not looking so good. Yes, Michael has a long and respected career scoring a boatload of PBS movies. So what? His brother is Kevin Bacon. He just can't compete.

WINNERS: LIAM & NOEL GALLAGHER
Oasis' lead singer and songwriter-guitarist are rock god brothers-in-arms, always ready for a pint, a brawl, and a grandiose statement more outrageous than the last. Love 'em or hate 'em, they are keeping rock's unruly heritage alive.

LOSER: PAUL GALLAGHER
And then there's Paul, the third Gallagher brother. "There's a third Gallagher brother? " you ask? Yes. "Is he the Scottish football player?" No. "COO of Forbes magazine?" Wrong guy. "A distant cousin to actor Peter Gallagher?" Nope. Noel and Liam's older brother is the author of "Brothers: From Childhood to Oasis" and a screenplay writer. 'Nuff said.

WINNER: THOM YORKE
As the angst-ridden frontman of Radiohead, Thom Yorke possesses a beautifully tortured voice and has pushed the boundaries of how pop music is made and sold. He's one of the singular artists who come around once every so often, inspiring legions of fans and budding musicians alike.

LOSER: ANDY YORKE
Thom's younger brother had a late '90s band called the Unbelievable Truth (named after the Hal Hartley cult film). They disbanded after three albums, and Andy released a solo record, "Simple," in 2008. Needless to say, he stands in a big shadow.

WINNER: MICHAEL JACKSON
I know, there are really no winners in the Jackson family — only freakish stories. Still, if you have to put one on top, it's gotta be the King of Pop. Despite Bubbles, the Elephant Man, questionable underage slumber parties, and going out one too many times in his pajamas, Jacko's musical legacy is undeniable.

LOSER: TITO JACKSON
Could you name Tito in a Jackson 5 photo? Hint: he's the guitar player. According to his website, he's soon announcing dates for his blues band and putting the finishing touches on a solo album. Wanna bet if it hits stores before Michael's comeback?

WINNER: PAUL McCARTNEY
He's Paul McCartney for chrissakes! A knighted Beatle. He wrote every song you know. There's no bigger winner in rock.

LOSER: MIKE McCARTNEY
Paul's younger brother did not want to capitalize on his famous surname while performing in the early '60s, so he invented the stage name "Mike McGear." After some moderate U.K. hits (including one with Wings as his backing band —ditch the family name but use the brother's band?), Mike turned full time to photography. Among his published works? Beatles pictures. Lots of Beatles pictures.

WINNER: SEAN LENNON
Although he hasn't had the chart success of his half-brother, John and Yoko's only kid has the artistic cred that can only come from a lifetime of hanging with New York hipsters and being... well... John and Yoko's only kid. He's the poster child for indie-music cool chic, hanging with Rufus Wainwright, Cibo Matto, and every other artist with a lower Manhattan zip code.

LOSER: JULIAN LENNON
Even though he gets points for having a Beatles song written for him ("Hey Jude") and having two Top 10 hits in the '80s, Julian stills comes up short in the sibling coolness department. Aside from his well-publicized battles with stepmom Yoko, his cover of the Fab Four's "When I'm Sixty-Four" number for an Allstate Insurance commercial didn't help his case.
