Bonehead Says He'd Be Up For An Oasis Reunion

Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs will be reuniting with Liam Gallagher at least twice next month - and says he'd be up for an Oasis reunion too.

There will be plenty of Oasis reunions for founding members Liam Gallagher and Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs next month.

For guitarist Bonehead reveals he too will be joining Liam at the big film premiere of Oasis documentary Supersonic in Manchester on Sunday night - before hooking up with the frontman again later in the month for an exclusive Q&A with Radio X at the Etihad Stadium .

And amid all that we also have the launch of Oasis exhibition Chasing the Sun at the Old Granada Studios from October 14 - with Bonehead confirming he’ll be heading along there at some point too.

So what does all this mean for a full on reunion for the Manchester band? Well, as far as Bonehead is concerned, he’d be there 'like a shot' if it happened.

Bonehead says: “There’s never a day goes by when I’m not asked by someone about a reunion. But nothing has been said to me about that. If I was asked? Then absolutely, like a shot.”

Bonehead remains good pals with Liam, and the duo caused something of a stir when they both turned up to the opening night of the Chasing the Sun exhibition when it opened in London two years ago.

The exhibition includes a host of rarely seen photographs, the band’s instruments and stage clothes, and for fans the chance to recreate the iconic Definitely Maybe album cover in a purpose-built recreation of Bonehead’s old living room in West Didsbury where the image was shot back in 1994.

Bonehead says: “It’s got everything and more really for fans, it’s a chance to see a load of stuff up close and personal, never seen before pictures that we’d never even seen, Noel’s guitars, coats that Liam wore at Glastonbury, the coat that I wore at Maine Road, guitars we played on.

“And then there’s a mock set up of the room, so everyone’s got the chance to lie on the floor and be Liam, it’s a great thing.”

Bonehead’s old house on Stratford Avenue in West Didsbury became something of a shrine for Oasis fans after the huge success of their debut album, and Bonehead fondly recalls how it all came to happen that his front room took a place in rock n roll history.

He says: “It wasn’t really intended to be that room on the album cover, it was just everyone was living at their parents at the time so it made sense to come round mine to chat about what we could do for an album cover.

“Michael Spencer Jones was designing the album cover, so we were bouncing around some ideas, I don’t know who it was but someone said 'why don't we do it here?' And it came from there.”

Bonehead is also looking forward to watching Supersonic again on Sunday night at the Odeon in Manchester - after watching a first edit at a private screening with Liam back in April.

He says: “It was a pretty incredible film to watch. There was stuff on there that even the band members are thinking how did they get that? It’s a brilliant, brilliant film, really portrays it all.

“I think it really brought it back to me. At the time everything was happening so quick and we were reaching those heights, you really don’t get a day to sit back and think, where are we going?

“When we were doing it then there was no YouTube, Facebook or Twitter, so to sit and back and watch those early years, growing up to walking out with the band at Knebworth, it was a pretty incredible thing.”
