Noel Gallagher Quit Oasis Over A Leather Jacket

The musician has been telling XFM about the time he quit Oasis… because of a fight between Liam and Bonehead over a jacket.

Noel famously jumped ship from the band while on a US tour in 1996… and it was all down to a row between brother Liam and guitarist Bonehead.

Speaking at a special XFM charity event last night (3 November), Noel told XFM's John Kennedy:

"I had enough when Liam and Bonehead - and this is true - started arguing over a leather jacket. I am not even kidding. I can dress it up more than this, but this is what happened.

"Liam said to Bonehead on the back of the bus: 'Where d'you get that jacket from?' And Bonehead said: 'What's it got to do with you?' It went from that, to fighting!

"Wonderwall was at Number 5 in the charts, the album was at… one push and it would have been Number 1! One tiny week of doing good gigs!"

A Night With Noel Gallagher In Conversation was a special night in which Noel was interviewed by XFM's John Kennedy live on stage, with contributions from Nicky Wire of Manic Street Preachers, former Creation Records boss Alan McGee and ex-Deputy Editor of the NME, Hamish McBain.
