Liam Gallagher Terrified Kasabian During Helicopter Flight














Liam Gallagher terrified Kasabian when he started play fighting with them during a helicopter flight.

The 'Eez-eh' hitmakers bonded with the rocker when they supported his band Oasis during their run of hometown gigs at Manchester's Heaton Park in 2009.

They got on so well that guitarist Serge Pizzorno and singer Tom Meighan were taken to Scotland for lunch in the helicopter with Liam but decided to be mischievousness.

Serge said: ''On the way back, Tom and Liam started play-fighting, rocking the thing, screaming. I'm sitting there going 'Maaaate!' This ain't like the back of a car, man, we're f***ing miles in the air.

This rain starts coming down and the captain goes, 'Right, we've gotta land because the weather's terrible.'

Liam's like, 'We're not landing, man, just drive through it!' - in the end we had to land. We had to emergency land in this airport.'' The stars then went back to their hotel and Serge and Tom were still starstruck after spending time with Liam.

Serge gushed to NME magazine: ''Liam's such an amazing dude. He's funny and proper looks after us. Those gigs were unbelievable.''

Noel Gallagher To Open Oasis Exhibition In Manchester Next Month














Noel Gallagher, the driving force behind the biggest UK band of the 90s and the Gallagher brother least likely to punch you, is set to open a new free Oasis exhibition at Great Northern this July.

To mark two decades since the release of Supersonic, the debut release from Oasis, and the twentieth anniversary re-release of debut album, Definitely Maybe, Chasing the Sun: Oasis 1993-1997 will open at the former Dwell unit on Deansgate from Friday 18 July to Sunday 17 August.

Following the exhibition’s previous April showcase in Shoreditch, London, Chasing the Sun documents the band’s journey from unsigned Burnage band, through their first three albums: Definitely Maybe (1994), (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) and Be Here Now (1997).

The exhibit also documents live shows at London’s 100 Club, Glastonbury and their momentous two nights at Knebworth in August 1996, which saw over quarter of a million fans in attendance (2.5 million people applied for tickets – still the largest ever demand for tickets in British history).

Liam Gallagher, the more rambunctious Gallagher brother, recently said of Knebworth: "At Knebworth I thought we were doing one night and we were doing two. I got that mashed on the first I woke up to a knock on the door and thought I was at home. I forgot all about it. But I had to go and do it again. That was heavy."

The exhibition includes rare early footage of the band, previously unseen images from photographers such as Jamie Fry, Paul Slattery, Johnny Hopkins and the show’s curator, Lawrence Watson.

There's rare memorabilia, artefacts and even a selection of the band’s instruments too, including the original Union Jack Epiphone Sheraton guitar and a Gibson Les Paul Sunburst given to Noel by The Smiths’ Johnny Marr.

Fans will also be able to have their photo taken in a recreated scene from the album cover of Definitely Maybe. Fingers crossed that Noel likes the new Oasis exhibition more than he likes bookish types: "I don’t get it. Book sellers, book readers, book writers, book owners – fuck all of them.”  Right on brother.

Hold on... Chasing the Sun: Oasis 1993-1997 will launch the opening of the new ‘Home of Future Artists’ at the former Dwell unit at Great Northern, Deansgate.

The event is FREE and tickets can be booked here.

On This Day In Oasis History...
















"Stop Crying Your Heart Out" is a song by British rock band Oasis. It was released as the second single from Heathen Chemistry on 17 June 2002, peaking at number two in the UK charts. It went silver in the UK.

The song is an "epic weepy" anthem in the spirit of "Don't Look Back in Anger", reassuringly advising that in times of hardship, simply get over it and get on with your life. Noel Gallagher explained the song saying "A friend of mine was going through a pretty bad time and I sort of wrote it with him in mind."

Noel Gallagher had great expectations for the song, saying "I hope it does for us what 'Don't Look Back In Anger' did... I didn't want it as a single because I thought we'd done all that before, but everyone's going, 'You're fucking mad.'". NME said, 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' [is where] you really start rolling out the red carpet. A return to the long lost humanism of 'Don't Look Back In Anger', it's a reminder of Noel's knack of cheering up his audience just when they need it most." Q magazine held up the song as proof that "genius never completely left Oasis".




















"Stop Crying Your Heart Out" was one of the songs played during the end credits of the movie, The Butterfly Effect, starring Ashton Kutcher and Amy Smart. It has been on the TV show Smallville too. The song also appeared after England's defeats in the 2002 Football World Cup and the 2006-07 Ashes. Noel Gallagher dedicated it to the English football team before playing it at the 2004 Glastonbury Festival. The song is also featured in the film Made of Honor, Starring Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan and appears towards the end of the film.

This blog and my Oasis site was named after the song.

Noel Gallagher Praises Paul Weller's Generosity Towards His Fans













Noel Gallagher has recalled a story in which Paul Weller gave a fan the shirt off his back.

The revelation comes as part of a new video, see above, in which a number of musicians talk about their memories of Weller. Paul McCartney also features and speaks about his appreciation of Weller's ability to adapt with the times and change his musical style on a regular basis. Miles Kane and Ocean Colour Scene's Steve Cradock, Weller's long-time musical collaborator, also appear.

Telling his own story, Noel Gallagher says: "I've seen a kid come up to him once and say, at a pub outside ours, I really like that shirt and he just took it off and gave it him and then sat in the pub topless, yep, then sat in the pub topless for the rest of the day."

 alking about the changing status of his relationship from fan to friend with Weller, Noel continues: "Once you've had to throw someone out of your house a couple of times at 7 in the morning, and you know, nearly got in fights with them, that kind of thing ceases to exist anymore and it's like, you know, you're kind of his mate."

Weller released his latest compilation album, 'More Modern Classics', featuring tracks from the past 15 years of the singer's solo career, on June 2. The album acts as the follow up to 1998 compilation 'Modern Classics.' 'More Modern Classics' covers the period from that year until the modern day with new song 'Brand New Toy', recorded for Record Store Day 2014, included alongside the likes of 'From The Floorboards Up' and 'That Dangerous Age.'

On This Day In Oasis History...















"Shakermaker" is a song by British rock group Oasis, written by their lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. First appearing as a single, released on the 13th June 1994, which peaked at number 11 in the UK charts, it was later released on Oasis' groundbreaking debut album Definitely Maybe. It was also the first song performed by the band on the UK's world famous music program, Top Of The Pops.

Gallagher admits the lyrics are taken from the world around him, for example, a Shaker Maker was a popular toy in the 1970s, the character of "Mr Soft" was taken from a Trebour Soft Mints commercial, which featured Cockney Rebel's song "Mr Soft", "Mr. Clean" is a song by The Jam, one of Gallagher's favourite bands, "Mr Benn" is a British children's cartoon and the entire last verse - Mr Sifter sold me songs/When I was just 16/Now he stops at traffic lights/But only when they're green - was written in a taxi on the way to the recording studio to record the song. Apparently, Liam Gallagher was pestering Noel to finish the song. At this point, the taxi stopped at the traffic lights outside 'Sifter's"' (a record shop in Burnage, Manchester). Noel penned the lyric and it became part of the song. Noel used to frequent the store to buy old records before Oasis started releasing albums and Mr Sifter refers to the owner of the record store.

O-Town's Jacob Underwood Talks Oasis Versus One Direction














O-Town star Jacob Underwood has said he prefers Oasis to One Direction.

The 'All or Nothing' singer has just reformed the pop band with his bandmates Erik-Michael Estrada, Dan Miller and Trevor Penick after splitting in 2003.

Despite his time away from the music scene, Jacob has kept up with modern pop songs and enjoys what the 1D boys are doing, but he'll always prefer Liam and Noel Gallagher's rock anthems.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Yeah I like One Direction, I really like their last song 'Story of My Life' and I really like their voices. I didn't really listen to a lot of pop music to be honest until recently. I like Oasis, I've always liked Oasis' music. I was never like a die-hard fan but I enjoy their music."

Jacob was disappointed just like millions of other fans when Noel, 47, quit Oasis in 2009 following a backstage bust-up with his younger brother Liam, 41, but hopes they can will reform at some point.

The star - who releases new single 'Skydive' with O-Town on July 27 followed by their album 'Lines & Circles' on August 3 - said: "People break-up and get back together all the time - that's the trouble with a family business."

When told the brothers have barely spoken since their split, he added: "That's got to be tough man, that has got to really suck.".

Lars Ulrich Says Metallica Might Cover Oasis' 'Wonderwall' At Glastonbury














Metal band Metallica might be taking on Oasis' "Wonderwall," one of the most well known rock singles of all time, at the Glastonbury Festival.

This is only adding fuel to an already strong fire regarding the band being one of the main headliners at the popular musical festival. n a recent interview with The Guardian, Metallica's Lars Ulrich spoke about their headlining performance and that they might have to perform their own cover of the rock 'n' roll classic.

When asked about the groups reaction to suggestions that a metal headliner won't work at Glatsonbury, Ulrich referenced Jay Z's 2008 performance when Noel Gallagher claimed that wouldn't work as a headlining performance.

"Jay Z came out and played 'Wonderwall,' right? So maybe we gotta go out and do our rendition of 'Wonderwall.' We'll start with 'Wonderwall' and we'll take it from there. Ha ha, listen, you've just gotta go out and be yourself and be proud of what you're doing," Ulrich said.
