Apology To Noel Gallagher From Dan Wooten

















LAST week I reported some comments Noel Gallagher made to a fan at a gig for the charity Warchild after the Brits.

Well, it seems that fan may have had one too many of the free beers on offer and got a little carried away.

Today I'm happy to make it clear that Noel has maintained a graceful silence about his brother Liam since he made a statement when he left Oasis last August.

I can't wait to see him take the stage for the first time since leaving the band at the Teenage Cancer Trust shows at London's Royal Albert Hall next month.

On This Day In Oasis History...




















Today is 10 years to the day since the release of 'Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants', the first album to be released on the bands own record label Big Brother.

To celebrate this day in the band's history and to thank you the fans, every one of Oasis' albums will be available to purchase digitally at a celebratory £3 each for ONE DAY ONLY. This includes the 14 million selling album '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' which last week took the award for "Best Album Of The Last 30 Years" at the UK's Brit Awards.

DON'T FORGET THIS SPECIAL OFFER ON SUNDAY IS FOR ONE DAY ONLY FROM MIDNIGHT (UK TIME) ON 27TH FEB!

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.

Courteeners Cover Oasis














Courteeners frontman Liam Fray overcame a bout of nerves to perform a special cover of Oasis' B-side D'Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman during the band's acoustic set which also included recent hit You Overdid It Doll.

The singer said: "It's quite daunting covering an Oasis song. There will be comparisons to them but we are not the new Oasis."

Noel Gallagher More Popular Than Liam















The Gallagher brothers have banged on about their rivalry for years, who’s the best singer, who’s the funniest . . . yadda,yadda, yadda.

Finally, we can prove Noel Gallagher, 42, is six times more popular with the public than his juvenile kid brother.

Moments after Liam, 37, threw Oasis’s Brit award into the crowd during last week’s ceremony a prankster listed it on eBay under “Noel Gallagher’s Brit award”. Within hours a flood of bids from excited fans had surged past the £50,000 mark.

However, the joke seller was forced to admit it was a spoof and not the real McCoy.

Later, the real gold figurine which Liam tossed into the crowd was put on eBay by a genuine seller listed as “Liam’s Brit award”.

It received only 13 bids in a whole week with the top offer scraping just £7,800.

Noel Gallagher To Build New Summer House

















Former Oasis band member Noel Gallagher is hoping to create an 'oasis' of his own in Chalfont St Giles.

Mr Gallagher, who was a songwriter, guitarist and singer in the popular Britpop group, has applied for planning permission to build a summer house in his ten-acre gardens at his home in Nightingales Lane.

He plans to swap the rock'n'roll lifestyle for relaxing amongst wild flowers in the Buckinghamshire countryside. He has proposed a single storey octagonally-shaped structure where he can enjoy 'champagne supernova' and will be used by his family.

The timber building is to have a thatched roof - a world away from the Manchester streets where he grew up.

A council report states the summer house will not overlook his neighbours and will be screened by existing shrubbery - being more than 100 metres away from the wonderwalls of his house.

It states: "The family intend to enhance the existing shrubs and trees with more planting and native meadow flowers. The overall appearance of the summer house is designed to blend in with the surrounding trees and shrubs and create a refuge in the garden."

Last August Mr Gallagher quit the group after 18 years following a disagreement with fellow band mate and brother Liam. The band recently won a Brit award for best album of the past 30 years for their release '(What's the Story) Morning Glory?'

The supergroup also ran through tracks including The Jam's 'Eton Rifles' and UK chart-toppers 'Start!' and 'Town Called Malice'.

NME editor Krissi Murison introduced Weller onstage first, alongside The Clash's Mick Jones and Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie.

"We could quite believe he hadn't been given it before," Murison said, before Jones and Gillespie took to the mic.

"He wrote some of the most beautiful, poetic songs," Gillespie said, before listing a number of Weller's most-revered tracks.

He added: "I could go on all all night cos he's written so many classics."

Gillespie then called Weller "the real deal", before letting Jones speak.

"It's our great pleasure to present this award to this incredible man, and to this man who we love," Jones exclaimed, after which a video montage of stars including Noel Gallagher, Carl Barat and Peter Blake praising Weller played on the big screens.

Weller then took to the stage himself.

"What could I say, it's taken them 30 years," he said first.

He then added: "I'm embarrassed because people said so many nice things about me...but they're all true! God bless you, have a good night!"

Paul Weller played:

'7+3 Is The Striker's Name'
'Start!'
'Wake Up The Nation'
'From The Floorboards Up'
'Eton Rifles'
'Town Called Malice'

Canadian Officials Fear Media Circus And Turn Down Gallagher's Request

















Officials in Canada have turned down Noel Gallagher's request to appear at his attacker's sentencing hearing amid fears it will become a media circus.

The former Oasis rocker was left with three broken ribs after Danny Pickering lunged at him during one of the band's shows in Toronto, Canada in September 2008.

The 48 year old pleaded guilty to assault and Gallagher formally requested he be present at the sentencing hearing in Toronto to read the victim impact statement in person.

A judge previously ruled that Gallagher was entitled to be present and postponed the hearing date to accommodate the musician's schedule.

But now prosecutor Ruth Kleinhenz-Nelson has revealed officials have decided Gallagher should not attend because of the publicity surrounding the case, according to the Toronto Star.

The sentencing hearing has been rescheduled for 23 March (10), while Pickering's defence lawyer, John Collins, has called the delays "frustrating for me and my client.

EMI Is Not Selling Abbey Road Studios




















Music giant EMI has responded to the recent rumors that it may sell off Abbey Road, the legendary Beatles recording studio in London.

In an official statement released over the weekend, EMI's parent company, Terra Firma, announced that it will not, in fact, sell the aging space, but revitalize it instead.

The statement comes after last week's public outcries from former Beatle Paul McCartney and swirling rumors that composer Andrew Lloyd Webber may swoop in to save the studio.

"In response to recent press speculation, EMI confirms that it is holding preliminary discussions for the revitalization of Abbey Road with interested and appropriate third parties," the company said in the statement.

"Abbey Road studios had, for a number of years, been losing money and we have developed plans to revitalize the studios," EMI added. "These plans would involve a substantial injection of new capital."

Abbey Road has not only hosted recording sessions by such classic rock legends as the Beatles and Pink Floyd; it was also the studio used to record Radiohead's Kid A, as well as albums from Oasis and Snow Patrol.

Noel Gallagher Is Consulting His Lawyers Over NOTW Article








Noel Gallagher is consulting his lawyers over an article in today's News of the World attributing derogative remarks about his former band members to the Oasis songwriter. Yet again this tawdry tabloid is fabricating lies about ex-members of Oasis, and has clearly sunk to new depths this time.

In today's paper they write that Noel has made derogatory comments about Liam's new band (which they still insist on referring to as Oasis, another of their many errors). The claims made in the article and the quotes attributed to Noel are simply untrue.

What's more, we have learned that the article was written by the same hack journalist who brought fans the ‘exclusive’ that Liam had recruited a female bass player recently.

The woman named in that article, who's actually a fan website editor, embarrassed the newspaper with a categorical denial within hours of the story surfacing.

Noel Gallagher & Hilda Ogden Set For Coronation Street's 50th Birthday Shows?




















Coronation Street is sensationally plotting to bring back its most famous character Hilda Ogden for blockbuster 50th anniversary live episodes.

In a move that could blow EastEnders' huge 25th birthday show last Friday out of the water, a galaxy of Street legends is set to return.

They could also include Mavis Wilton, Curly Watts and Tracy Barlow, as well as a guest appearance by Oasis star Noel Gallagher.

Show chiefs have been hatching plans for dramatic shows featuring movie-style stunts for Corrie's birthday in December.

Our mole added: "This year is the ultimate war of the soaps. EastEnders set the bar high on Friday but Corrie will want to smash it. Whatever happens, they will make it go with a bang."

In an online chat, producer Kim suggested they may also talk to Kate Ford, 32, who played Tracy Barlow. She said: "There may well be some exciting returning cast. It would be fab to see Tracy Barlow back, wouldn't it? "Noel Gallagher would be great as well.

There are also plans for some new faces in the factory."

Noel Gallagher Lays Into John Terry











Few people are fond of love rat John Terry these days - and certainly not Noel Gallagher.

The die-hard Manchester City fan has never hidden his dislike for the Chelsea skipper and now admits he has joined the ever-growing Team Bridge.

I bumped into the mouthy Manc this week and he couldn't wait to fry JT - allegedly caught playing away with Wayne Bridge's ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel.

The ex-Oasis star, 42, told me: "John Terry is a c***." (I'll let you work out the asterisks.)

"I've never liked the bloke but doing that to Bridgey shows what he's like. What an a***hole. If I ever see him I'm not sure what would happen.

"Everyone has got behind Wayne, which is great to see. When Chelsea come to play us Terry is going to get so much s*** and he'll deserve all of it. I hope our boys give him as much abuse as they can and here's a message to the fans - "Give it all you've got".

Noel was enjoying a night out at the War Child concert in London following the Brit Awards on Tuesday when he entertained me with his rant about Terry, 29, who was last month exposed for supposedly scoring with Vanessa, 34.

In July, at the time of speculation that Terry could be joining 29-year-old Bridge at Man City, Noel told of his utter disgust at the planned move. He said: "I don't like John Terry and I never have.

"He's got funny eyes and he's a cry-baby. He's also a Cockney."

His outburst was certainly well timed, as Manchester City visit Chelsea this Saturday.

Noel, left, added: "The best thing City ever did was not sign John Terry. It would have been a huge mistake.

"Now I can't wait to see the s*** he gets and I'll laugh my head off."

Noel Gallagher Reportedly Slams Liam Gallagher's Brits Speech












MORE MADE UP NEWS FROM THE NOTW

Star criticises his brother for failing to mention him at ceremony.

Ex-Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has reportedly criticised his brother Liam Gallagher's acceptance speech at the Brit Awards 2010 earlier this week.

The singer attended the ceremony to accept the honour for Brit Album Of 30 Years award for the 1995 Oasis album '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?', but failed to mention his brother during his acceptance speech.

The singer then threw his microphone and award into the audience as he walked offstage.

Noel Gallagher is believed to have later told a fan: "If he wants to take credit for my band then that's up to him. But every fan knows the truth and that's all that matters."

He also apparently criticised his brother for carrying on with the rest of the remaining band members, reports the News Of The World.

"It's like the fucking Sugababes now," he joked. "They'll be kicking (bass guitarist) Andy Bell out next and replacing him with a leggy blonde.

"Oasis fans don't care what the band look like. But our kid doesn't get that. Fashion is for women and gay men."

Liam Gallagher had an eventful night at the Brits, with the singer also giving an insightful backstage interview where he insinuated that somebody else at the awards had had an argument with him. He was then heard saying that he wanted to get "loads of class A drugs" as the interview ended.

Noel Gallagher Originally Filed $2 Million Statement Of Claim Against Attacker

















An intoxicated Daniel Sullivan pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm when with a drunken violent shove pushed guitarist/song writer Noel Gallagher from behind and off stage into a bank of speaker amplifiers breaking three of his ribs.

The incident occurred back in September 2008 during the Virgin Music Festival on the Toronto Island.

Earlier this month of February, Toronto man Daniel (Danny) Sullivan, a now 48 year old from Pickering Ontario, attended a sentencing hearing at downtown Toronto's Old City Hall courthouse.

However, the 'sentencing hearing in front of Mr. Justice Richard Schneider was delayed so that Oasis vocalist Noel Gallagher could attend to make a victim impact statement.' Sourced: CHART Attack

Daniel Sullivan, who is married with children, has never before been in trouble with the law and John Collins (Daniel Sullivan's lawyer) said that this incident was “totally out of character" and that in light of his client's otherwise “exemplary” track record, he would be seeking a conditional, non-custodial sentence. Sourced: Globe and Mail

Noel Gallagher stated that it took him about eight months to fully recover. Parallel to the criminal proceedings, Gallagher filed a statement of claim against his attacker Daniel Sullivan (originally charged with aggravated assault), seeking more than $2 million in damages from Sullivan for compromising his ability to perform and having to cancel five gigs. However, prosecutors eventually agreed to the lesser charge of assault.

Mcgee's Sobriety Led To Oasis Success













Creation Records boss Alan Mcgee owes Oasis' success to his own sobriety - because the band would not have made it as big as they did if he'd joined their wild life.

Now retired from the music industry, the man who orchestrated the Britpop trend in the mid 1990s insists the best decision he ever made was to stop drinking and taking drugs as his record label took off.

MCGee tells Nylon magazine, "I stopped doing both (drink and drugs) in 1994... although sometimes I feel it would have been easier if I'd been off my nut.

"It (sobriety) helped me keep hold of them (Oasis)... I needed to be a sober-minded individual to look after Oasis."

The Scottish svengali admits he had "a brief relapse with alcohol" in 2002, but he quit again after his wife made him realise he was becoming "an embarrassment".

He adds, "It started with one glass of wine and ended up with a couple of bottles (a day)."

8 Reasons Why Noel Gallagher Would Be A Hilarious American Idol Judge











As American Idol judge Simon Cowell prepares to leave the program to focus on bringing his X Factor show to the United States, rumours (trial ballons?) about who will replace him have been continually appearing in the media.

Surprisingly, former Oasis singer/guitarist is Noel Gallagher is the latest person to be suggested as the next American Idol judge. Even more surprising is that Cowell himself has said he thinks Gallagher would make a good replacement.

"I know Noel quite well. I like him," Cowell told the Press Association. "He is very funny and a brilliant songwriter — it's a possibility."

Cowell also said Perez Hilton would be a good choice as his replacement. Radio shock jock Howard Stern and Britain's Got Talent's Piers Morgan have also been suggested as new judges in place of Cowell, but nothing's been decided yet.

We think Gallagher's the best choice for the job, and here's why:

1. He will be merciless about pointing out when someone can't sing or when there's music he thinks is rubbish, which will be about 90-something per cent of the time. If you thought Cowell could be mean, just imagine the type of things Gallagher would say. ("Yer fookin' rubbish, get out o' me sight!")

2. Most contestants are going to look at him like scared deers in headlights. They'll also have no what he's saying, since he's got one hell of a thick Mancunian accent.

3. If American Idol's producers want to counter The X Factor, which originated in Britain and will feature Britons like Cowell, I think the best course of action would be to pick a really, really prominent British celebrity, and Gallagher is that. He's also got the necessary acerbic personality and wit.

4. Yeah, we know Gallagher's working on that solo album, but fact is he's got a lot of time on his hands since smashing his guitar and walking out on his brother in Paris last year. If he's continually surrounded by people who are shitty musicians and singers, perhaps it will push him to make a really great solo record and prove to Liam Gallagher that everything Oasis did post (What's The Story) Morning Glory? really was shite.

5. If Noel takes this on, it will be like spitting in Liam's face, and you can be Liam is going to have a field day with it and chew Noel up in the press. Can you imagine the hilariously entertaining bitchfest that will undoubtedly ensue?

6. Every second word will have to be bleeped out. Idol would then be 100 per cent funnier.

7. The image of Noel Gallagher sitting there with a pint in front of him looking incredibly irritated while someone sings Lady Gaga horribly off key is so hilarious in my head that it absolutely needs to become reality.

8. Anyone who expresses admiration for "soccer" will be shouted at and told it's "fookin' football," and anyone who says any team other than Man City is good will be screamed at and told they're an "idjit."

'The Who' Want Liam Gallagher For Charity Gig




















Roger Daltrey wants Liam Gallagher to play with The Who at their Teenage Cancer Trust charity show.

Roger Daltrey wants Liam Gallagher to play with The Who.

The legendary frontman wants the former Oasis singer to join his band on stage when they play their classic 'Quadrophenia album at the conclusion of this year's run of shows for the Teenage Cancer Trust charity.

Although Liam turned the opportunity down, Roger is leaving the door open for him to be able to play with the band.

He said to Absolute Radio host Geoff Lloyd: "I actually rung Liam to be part of The Who night, but he's otherwise engaged.

"We've actually got room for two guests, and anyone who wants to turn up and do something after we do 'Quadrophenia', just to round off the night, you know - let's see what happens."

Although he's not secured Liam's services to perform at the series of concerts, two of the other nights will see the first live performances by his brother Noel Gallagher since Oasis split last August

Roger added: "This is the first thing he's done, and he's always been involved with these shows. "In the first year he guested with us on those first shows, and he's done it with Oasis, he's done it on his own, solo. Post-Oasis, it's his first, and it's his only thing planned for the year."

Other artists who are playing this year's Teenage Cancer Trust shows include Them Crooked Vultures, Suede and Arctic Monkeys.

Simon Cowell: Noel Gallagher Could Replace Me On American Idol




















Simon Cowell has said Oasis star Noel Gallagher could take over his judging seat on American Idol - if US viewers can understand his Manchester accent.

The TV and pop mogul was quizzed about his replacement on the hit series when he leaves this year to launch an American edition of The X Factor.

Asked whether proud Mancunian Noel would be suitable, Cowell said: "Do you think people would understand him?"

He added: "I know Noel quite well. I like him. He is very funny and a brilliant songwriter - it's a possibility."

Gallagher could have more time on his hands after quitting Oasis last year following a row with his younger brother and lead singer Liam.

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.

No Oasis Reunion For Bonehead















Ex-Oasis guitarist Bonehead was, unsurprisingly, besieged by calls this week after frontman Liam Gallagher namechecked him in his controversial acceptance speech at the Brit Awards on Tuesday night.

Liam paid tribute to all former Oasis members – except brother Noel, of course – in his expletive-laden speech for winning the Best Album of the past 30 years for What's The Story Morning Glory, before throwing the gong into the audience.

Founder member Bonehead, who quit the band in 1999, backs Liam's actions all the way.

Bonehead, real name Paul Arthurs, tells me: “I knew we'd won the award and I knew Liam was going along.

“But I didn't know I'd be getting a mention. I'm pleased though – I was involved in that album after all.

“I think good on him for chucking the award into the audience – it sums The Brits up really. I mean Lady Gaga winning? Please!”

But while Bonehead remains mates with Liam he's ruled out ever rejoining Oasis. He's now busy recording an album with his new band The Vortex, with a European tour planned in April.

He says: “Even if I was asked to go back to Oasis I wouldn't do it, even if I was offered £5mn, because I'm totally, totally focused on The Vortex now. I'm glad Liam is going to carry things on though.”

Peter Kay Calls Liam Gallagher A 'Knobhead' Again...

















Peter Kay has called Liam Gallagher a “knobhead” again as the BRIT Awards feud rolls on.

Writing on his official website last night, funnyman Kay congratulated Noel Gallagher on his BRIT Award but had less kind words for Liam.

He said: “So it was the Brits last night and I was honoured to be asked to host the show especially with it being thirty years old.

“Congratulations to all the winners, including Noel Gallagher who sadly didn't get a mention (and who thankfully isn't a knobhead).

Liam yesterday reacted to angrily Kay's original jibe, writing on his Twitter account: “Regarding Peter Kay's comment...

“Listen up fat fuck as a real northerner I was brought up 2 say shit 2 people's faces not behind their back. Live forever LG.”

Liam clearly failed to see the irony in the fact that he wasn't calling Peter Kay a “fat fuck” to his face.

Liam Gallagher: Manchester City Need To Finish In Top Four











Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has concerns Roberto Mancini will fail to lead Manchester City into the top four this season.

Mancini has lost More games than predecessor Mark Hughes in a Shorter period of time.

And while City celebrity fan Gallagher likes the Italian, he was keen to offer a few selection tips.

Gallagher said: "Stephen Ireland and Martin Petrov should play all the time. We need to strengthen the squad - I'm happy with Carlos Tevez up front but we could do with someone up there with him.

"We might win a cup but we can't spend all that money and f*** about not getting into Europe."

Going, Going, Gong











It looks like Brits host Peter Kay was spot on.

Liam "Knobhead" Gallagher was thrown out of the backstage VIP bar minutes after making a fool of himself on stage.

The Oasis star pushed over a girl model who was painted silver to look like a Brit Award.

Fair play to her fella, who was stood nearby and painted gold.

He leapt off his podium and confronted Liam, telling him how out of order he was.

Security jumped in and ordered Liam out. A source said: "It was outrageous what Liam did. It upset a lot of people."

Liam was later "interviewed" by wife Nicole Appleton for ITV2.

Asked about Oasis's award for Best Album Of The Past 30 Years, he said: "I don't think we deserved it, there have been some great albums.

"But if we are f****** going to get invited then I will turn up and have it. I am going to f****** play the game."

Talking about the bust-up with the models, he snarled: "I have been silvered before. I have been pushed over. But I got up and f****** carried on. He is sitting there going, 'Hey, you pushed my bird over!'

"She's silver. I was gold and I was bronze, too, baby!

"Now can we all take loads of Class A drugs?"

Just the chat you expect from a millionaire dad who lives in posh Hampstead, in North London, and jogs every day.

Liam was called a "knobhead" by Kay on live TV after ignoring brother Noel in his acceptance speech then throwing his mic and Brit award in the crowd.

Yesterday, Liam hit back on Twitter: "Listen up fat f***. As a real northerner I was brought up to say s*** to people's faces, not behind their back."

Liam's antics might have raised a laugh ten years ago. But now he is out of date and tragic. Everyone else was having a great time and celebrating a good period in British music.

Noel missed Tuesday's awards at London's Earls Court. But he turned out later to see the War Child charity gig.

He told pals: "I see my little brother made a bit of a fool of himself? What was he doing?

"That was a chance for him to move on and talk about what he's doing now. He didn't even thank the fans properly."

Row Erupts After Peter Kay Swears At Liam Gallagher At Brits



Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom has received complaints over bad language in last night’s Brits coverage.

One complaint objected Peter Kay’s use of the word “knobhead” while the comic hosted ITV1’s live coverage. The remark was directed at Liam Gallagher after a predictably rebellious acceptance speech.

Gallagher swore and hurled a microphone as he accepted Oasis's award for the Best Brits album of the past 30 years for their second album, (What's the Story?) Morning Glory. As he left the stage, Kay remarked: "What a knobhead".

The comment sparked Gallagher to hit back at the Bolton comic today via Twitter, calling Kay a “fat f***”, and adding that “as a real northerner I was brought up 2 say s*** 2 people's faces not behind their back."

Meanwhile, a Facebook group set up in appreciation of Kay's remark has gathered more than 98,000 fans.

Gallagher sparked a second wave of complaints when he was interviewed by his wife Nicole Appleton in ITV2’s live backstage coverage. Just as the interview was coming to an end, Gallagher said: “It was nice, it was nice. Now can we all take loads of class A drugs?"

Ofcom will look into the complaints before deciding whether or not to investigate.

Liam Gallagher 'Livid' With Robbie Williams



Liam Gallagher was reportedly upset when he saw his wife Nicole Appleton talking to her ex-boyfriend Robbie Williams backstage at the Brit Awards last night.

The Oasis frontman picked up the award for 'Brits Album of 30 Years' on behalf of Oasis for (What's The Story) Morning Glory? at the ceremony, while Williams won the 'Outstanding Contribution to Music' prize.

A source told The Mirror of Appleton's conversation with Williams: "Liam was livid. He was muttering and pacing around when he heard that his wife had been reunited with his former arch rival."

Gallagher and Williams have traded insults in the past, with Williams suggesting a televised fight between the pair at the 2000 Brits ceremony.

Oasis Win Best Album Of The Past 30 Years At The Brits!








Oasis' album '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' won the award for the best album of the past 30 years at last night's Brit Award ceremony at Earl's Court in London. Liam was on hand to pick up the award.

'(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' has sold over 14 million copies worldwide, 4.2 of which are in the UK alone.

The number one album marked the band's first UK number one single with 'Some Might Say' and features live favourites such as 'Roll With It' and 'Champagne Supernova'. It also contains the singles 'Wonderwall' and 'Don't Look Back In Anger'. 'Wonderwall', released in 1995, was the band's 8th single in the space of 18 punch-drunk months that saw the band rise from noisy Manchester lads to the most talked about band in the world. These two songs, amongst so many others, have come to define Noel Gallagher's ability to write stadium-rousing anthems, something anyone who caught the band live can testify to.

The Brit Award category was voted for online by the public. The category was open to the best-selling, 'Best Album' winners from the past 29 Brit Awards to celebrate the Award's 30th birthday this year.

Oasis would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for them.

Cheers!

Noel Gallagher Mocks Liam's Brit Award Throwing











Former Oasis star Noel Gallagher has mocked his younger brother Liam's antics at The Brit Awards last night.

Acting typically cocksure, Liam threw Oasis' 'Brit Awards album of 30 years' gong into the crowd after picking it up at the Earls Court ceremony.

Leaving Home House in London at 4am this morning where he had been partying with Noel Fielding, Kasabian and Freddie Flintoff, Noel took a swipe at Liam.

In an effeminate voice, Noel did an impression of Liam in front of photographers saying: "ohh look, I've dropped my microphone!"

Liam Gallagher's Class A Drug Rant On ITV2














Liam Gallagher sensationally announced he was going to take Class A drugs straight after an interview he had on ITV2 – unbeknown to him he was still live on air.

The bad boy of Oasis was still in a temper after being called a ‘knobhead’ on ITV’s Brits Awards 2010 by host Peter Kay, just after he collected the award for Brits Album of 30 Years.

Liam, 37, made a spectacle of himself when he accepted the award – thanking everyone but snubbing his own brother Noel – and then preceding to throw not only the microphone into the screaming crowd but his Brit award too.

ITV were forced to make a broadcasting break as the fowl-mouthed singer couldn’t resist adding some ‘f*****g’ words into his speech.

Backstage when the hot-headed singer was being interviewed, he said: ‘I don’t know if we deserved it because there has been loads of great albums over the last 30 years.’

But the real shock came when he openly declared: ‘Now can we go and take loads of Class A drugs?’

The interview swiftly ended but it was too late as audiences had already heard the shock statement.

Liam Gallagher Throws Oasis' BRIT Award Into The Crowd











Liam Gallagher Throws Oasis' BRIT Award Into The Crowd At London ceremony...

Liam Gallagher threw Oasis’ BRIT Award into the crowd tonight as he collected the honour on behalf of the band at the ceremony in London.

The group, who split last year, won BRITS Album of 30 years for their 1995 album ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’.

Appearing as an unexpected guest, Liam thanked the members of Oasis who worked on the record - except for his brother Noel.

He then proceeded to walk to the front of the stage, where he threw the award into the crowd.

Gallagher’s reaction prompted host and comedian Peter Kay to brand him a “knob head”.

The band’s 1995 album beat records by Dido, Duffy and Phil Collins to the award.

Oasis split last August following the departure of guitarist Noel. Both brothers are currently on the verge of launching solo projects.

The ceremony, at Earls Court, has so far seen prizes handed to Dizzee Rascal, the Spice Girls and JLS.

Jay-Z Wants To Meet Oasis

"We have had our words in the past but the fact is they were one of the biggest bands in the world and you don't become that big unless you are making music of the highest quality - if they ever got back together, I would really like to meet them".
