Another Interview With Noel Gallagher After Manchester City's Cup Final Victory

Click here to watch an interview with Noel Gallagher after yesterdays Manchester City victory over Liverpool.

Noel Gallagher: 'Caballero Is A City Legend Now'

Oasis star and Manchester City fan Noel Gallagher said that goalkeeper Willy Caballero 'is now a club legend' after his penalty heroics in the Capital One Cup final.

The High Flying Birds frontman also said that the title race was out of Manchester City's hands, and Leicester City looked 'unstoppable'.

Noel was speaking from the tunnel at Wembley.

Noel Gallagher Says Sterling Should Give Caballero His Medal

Noel Gallagher has hinted that perhaps Raheem Sterling was lucky to have come away with a Capital One Cup medal.

Manchester City defeated Liverpool in the League Cup final at Wembley on Sunday, winning the penalty shootout 3-1, after it ended 1-1 at the end of extra-time.

Former Reds winger Sterling missed a golden opportunity to make it 2-0 in the second half, following Fernandinho's 49th-minute opener, but somehow placed his effort from just outside the six-yard box wide of the mark.

Philippe Coutinho equalised for Liverpool in the 83rd minute, making Sterling's miss costly, although Caballero spared his blushes with three fine saves in the shootout which prompted this reaction from Oasis legend Gallagher on ManCityTV.

"I think going into the shootout, he may have thought: 'Right, well this is it for me'," said the singer/songwriter of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

"He's a legend now forever, that's it. He's forever. Maybe before today he would have just been like another guy that played for us but he's one of us now.

"I think Sterling will be pretty pleased. He should give him his medal."

The cup was the fifth piece of silverware City have won since they clinched the 2011 FA Cup, excluding the Community Shield.

Liam Gallagher Tweets Praise For Richard Ashcroft But Says Noel Is 'Still A C**k'

Former Oasis wildman Liam got out of the wrong side of his bed this morning and Noel bore the brunt.

Liam Gallagher has had an eventful morning on Twitter paying tribute to rock pal Richard Ashcroft and calling big brother Noel a C-word.

Liam's Twitter was in meltdown on Brits night as he bemoaned the state of some of the acts (fair comment our kid).

He tweeted: "Music in the UK has been abducted by massive c**ks. The end. LG x."

He added: "Thank f*** I got out when I got out out. LG."

This morning he turned his attentions to Verve front man Richard Ashcroft who was presumably on the radio.

He then tweeted Verve lyrics like "I hope you understand, I've got a love that never dies" from their smash hit Lucky man.

But just when you think Liam was all benevolent to his fellow man he tweeted "pass the wine."

And again.

Before addressing his brother Noel (we're assuming it wasn't addressed to Paul Gallagher) as he informed his sibling he was "still a c**k bruv."

We're glad to see the Brothers Gallagher are still as close as ever after all these years.

Noel 'Nostradamus' Gallagher predicted EXACTLY How Manchester City Would Win The Capital One Cup

Noel Gallagher predicted EXACTLY how Manchester City would win the Capital One Cup final .

Gallagher was asked earlier today outside Wembley for his prediction - and he got every detail right.

"I think it's going to be mega close and I'm not very optimistic," he said.

"But I'm going to say we'll win on penalties."

He was then asked "who's going to get the decisive penalty?"

"Yaya. Roll it in."

Toure swept home the winning penalty to hand Man City the league cup - 3-1 on penalties - and prove Gallagher to be right.

But then the music legend has seen it all before. Man City beat Gillingham 3-1 in 1999 to win promotion to the Championship en route to their rise to the top of English football.

Goalkeeper Nicky Weaver was the hero that day at old Wembley, while today it was Willy Caballero who helped City to victory with three stops in the shootout.

Liam Gallagher Compared To Kanye West Following Another Rant On Twitter

Former Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher has launched into another expletive-laden rant on Twitter – leaving fans scratching their heads.

Liam, who last week exploded into a tirade after watching the Brits, has been at it again – prompting baffled fans to wonder if he’s “doing a Kanye” in reference to rapper Kanye West who is known for his Twitter outpourings.

Last night he started off by tweeting about the Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg fight, describing Bury boxer Quigg as a “Rock n Roll star” in reference to one of the Manchester band’s famous songs.

Then this morning he turned his attention to The Verve front man Richard Ashcroft, quoting from their massive hit Lucky Man and tweeting: “Ashcroft gives power get up you bunch of lazy tarts.”

He followed this with “kill the squares”, “big up Dave Malik”, “pass me down the wine” and finally “Still a **** bruv.”

His tweets caused one fan to tweet in reply: “get back to sleep its sunday x” and another quipped: “LG chill out wie the tweets man ur no Kanye.”

Another pointed out: “Liam Gallagher is doing what’s known in Twitterland as a ‘Kanye’ this morning.”

After the Brits on Wednesday Liam was looking back in anger as he passed his opinion on the annual ceremony, condemning the music industry in an expletive-laden tirade, asking: “Where do I ******* start?” before blasting: “Music in the UK has been abducted by massive ***** THE END” signing off with a kiss and his initials LG.

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.


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"


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.

Noel Gallagher: Manuel Pellegrini Must Learn From Liverpool Defeat

Man City fan Noel Gallagher hopes Manuel Pellegrini changes his approach for the Capital One Cup final after City's heavy defeat to Liverpool earlier this season.

Pellegrini's side were three goals down after 32 minutes at the Etihad Stadium in November, and eventually lost 4-1 as Liverpool put together one of their most impressive displays of the season under Jurgen Klopp.

Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino each found the net as they ran rampant in the first half, and as the two sides prepare to meet again at Wembley this weekend, Gallagher fears a repeat performance.

Richard Ashcroft Is Open To Working With Noel Gallagher

The Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft has suggested that he would be open to working with Noel Gallagher, telling NME in a new interview: "in the future who knows what might happen".

Ashcroft speaks to NME in an exclusive cover feature in this week's magazine (available now, free in the UK).

Ahead of releasing new album 'These People' on May 14, Ashcroft bemoaned the current state of the music industry, saying that he's "got no faith in it whatsoever".

He continued: "It’s sold itself up the river, stabbed people in the back instead of trying to create a good, solid British music alternative. Turn left for Cowell, turn right for this. The mainstream consumed our culture."

"You can get as many songwriters in a room as you want for your new talent show contest winner, it’s never gonna sound like a great Noel Gallagher song sung by Liam, it’s never gonna reach ‘Live Forever’, it’s never gonna be [Verve song] ‘Lucky Man’. We know that."

Last year, Noel Gallagher said he’d be interested in making an album with Ashcroft.

Asked whether he would work with Gallagher, Ashcroft replied: "It’s a great compliment for Noel to say something like that, and in the future who knows what might happen. I wish things like this would’ve happened years ago."

Ashcroft went on to speak of his fondness for his Britpop peers, saying: "Even the guys we had a bit of friction with, I look back and wish them luck. If I hear [Pulp frontman] Jarvis Cocker on the radio it gives me a good feeling. He’s waving a flag for culture from that time. We’re not stopping."

Yet Another On This Day In Oasis History...

The videos below are from the Brit Awards on February 19th 1996 that took place at Earls Court in London.

Oasis won Best British Video for Wonderwall, (What's the Story) Morning Glory? won Best British Album and Oasis won Best British Group.

Another On This Day In Oasis History...

"Don't Go Away" is a song by English rock band Oasis from their third album, Be Here Now (1997), written by the band's lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. The song was released as a single only in Japan on February 19th 1998, peaking at number 48 on the Oricon chart. It was also a success in the United States, where it hit #5 on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart in late 1997.


In a 1997 interview promoting Be Here Now, Noel Gallagher had the following to say about the song: "It's a very sad song about not wanting to lose someone you're close to. The middle eight I made up on the spot -- I never had that lyric until the day we recorded it: 'Me and you, what's going on?/ All we seem to know is how to show/ The feelings that are wrong.' It's after a row. Quite bleak."

"We put Burt Bacharach horns on because he was the master of break-up songs. I did all the string arrangements. I tried to keep them as simple as possible. I like the way Marc Bolan used them on Children Of The Revolution. People do remember string parts as separate hooklines, you know. You just don't want to use them slushily."


The cover of the single features the old Liverpool Speke Airport building. The airport is famous as the scene at which thousands of hysterical fans greeted The Beatles on their return to Liverpool at the height of Beatlemania. Derelict at the time, it has now been turned into an exclusive hotel.


The live version of "Cigarettes & Alcohol" was recorded 14 December 1997 at the G-MEX Exhibition Centre in Oasis' home town of Manchester.

"Sad Song" originally appeared as a bonus track on the vinyl release of the first Oasis album, Definitely Maybe. It also appeared on the Japanese CD edition of Definitely Maybe.

The 'Warchild' version of "Fade Away" is from the 'HELP' album recorded in September 1995. It features Noel on vocals, and guests Johnny Depp on guitar, Kate Moss on tambourine and Liam and Lisa Moorish on backing vocals.

All proceeds from that track went to Warchild Charities.

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.


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, Stone Roses And Kasabian Back Bid To Get Viola Beach To Number One

A number of big names have added their weight to the campaign to get Viola Beach to number one in the UK Singles Chart.

All four members of the band and their manager were killed when their car fell 80ft from a bridge into a canal on the outskirts of Stockholm on Saturday.

Following the tragedy, fans launched a social media campaign using the hashtag #ViolaBeach4number1 to get their debut single 'Swings and Waterslides' into the Top 40.

Liam Gallagher offered his support by sharing a link to download the track on his Twitter page.

Rock bands The Stone Roses and Kasabian also posted the single on social media and urged their fans to help get the track to top spot.

In their first TV interview yesterday, the family of the band's manager Craig Tarry said that getting the single to number one would be the perfect tribute.

Noel Gallagher Jokes That Russell Brand Has ''Serial Killer'' Tendencies

The 48-year-old former Oasis star is great friends with the comedian and the pair recently attended the Premier League soccer match between their beloved Manchester City and West Ham at the Boleyn Ground stadium in London last month.

However, during their drive to the match Noel couldn't help but notice that Russell, 40, keeps wet wipes under his sun visors which he thinks could be a sign that his pal has murderous tendencies.

Speaking as he hosted a special show for Absolute Radio - which can be listened to at Absoluteradio.co.uk - Noel said: ''I spent the day with him recently. He took me to see a match a couple of weeks ago. He drove us from the house in Maida Vale to West Ham which is the other side of the river. It was brilliant. I never get him in a car for more than five minutes. I was in the Range Rover with him ... I always find it weird that under the sun visors he has wet wipes. Now that's serial killer gear that innit? The wet wipes. If you have ever seen 'Making a Murderer, you'll understand what the wet wipes thing is. Who has wet wipes in the car. What you doing in there?''

Noel also revealed Russell refused to let a fire engine trying to get to a call out as they drove to the game.

He added: ''When we were in the Range Rover there was a big flashing light behind him. It was a fire engine, obviously on the way to a fire, trying to overtake us. And he wouldn't let this thing past.

''And when they were blowing their horn, he was kept looking in the wing mirror going, who is it, who is it? And I was like, it's a massive fire engine, can't you see that.''

Jamie Carragher Interviews Manchester City Fan Noel Gallagher Ahead Of The Capital One Cup Final

On Sunday, February 28, Manchester City and Liverpool will start a new chapter in the long-standing rivalry between the two cities when they meet in the Capital One Cup final.

Sportsmail columinist and former Reds defender Jamie Carragher and Noel Gallagher of Oasis know exactly what it means for their beloved clubs to be on the verge of success and when they met up on Monday they looked to at least be enjoying each other's company.

The two came together to appear in a segment on Sky's Soccer AM programme in which Carragher interviews Gallagher.

Carragher posted an image of the pair on his Instagram account with the caption: 'Interviewed a Rock 'N' Roll Star today Noel Gallagher for #socceram talking Man City v Liverpool cup final, Guardiola & MNF!'

It is indeed interesting that the pair got on so well especially as they met less than 24 hours after Carragher, in his role as a pundit for Sky Sports, had said that City won't win the Premier League title this season.

The programme will air on Saturday, February 27 at 10am on Sky Sports 1 and Sky One.

Noel Gallagher On Mr. Blobby, Threesomes, Oasis' 'Be Here Now' And More

Quotes from Noel Gallagher and Matt Morgan from last nights show on Absolute radio.

On Mr. Blobby 

Noel: “When he was on in the ‘90s – was it the ‘80s or the ‘90s? – I was obsessed with him ‘cause he’d just turn up and trash everything like a drunk, pink marshmallow. I thought it was anarchy, I thought it was the future."

Morgan: “I thought he was rubbish… I thought it was tongue-in-check meant to be rubbish, wasn’t it? It wasn’t meant to be – here’s the future.”

Noel: “I’m gonna get a load of DVDs and play ‘em to my children. I think they’d love it.”

Morgan: “Yeah, but what happened to him? It’s like he was disgraced or something. He disappeared.”

On threesomes

Noel: “I’ve never had a threesome.”

Morgan: “Really? You could have done. Why didn’t you?”

Noel: “I don’t know, I don’t like crowds.”

On fearing his knee had had a stroke

Morgan: “You once told me you went to the doctor because you had one sweaty leg.”

Noel: “I had one sweaty knee… It was in the ‘90s. Clearly, it was all connected to raging drug abuse. I used to wake up and one leg – it was around the knee area – was always sweaty. And because you’re paranoid, I used to think: ‘I wonder what it is? Maybe my knee’s having a stroke.’”

On Be Here Now

Morgan: “Did you ever scream on a track?”

Noel: “I’ve screamed on one track. On a track called ‘Fading Out’, me and Liam did a scream. We had to take a week off afterwards. It was awful. If you hear it on the record, it’s put through a harmonizer and it sounds… it wasn’t very good. I’m closing my eyes now and thinking of it and I’m thinking it’s not very good.”

Morgan: “Was it used?”

Noel: “It’s on the album! Be Here Now. Still available. A nine-million-selling flop.”

On David Bowie's death

Morgan: “It was a shock.”

Noel: “He did a photoshoot a few days before and he looked great… The insinuation is that he recorded [Blackstar] as a dying man.

Morgan: “If you found out you were dying, would you bother to go, ‘Oh, I’ve gotta do some music?’”

Noel: “It depends how I felt, really. I’m not that driven at the best of times. I wouldn’t have thought if I was on the way out… What I’d probably do is try to spend as much money as possible and settle a few scores. I don’t know if I’d be that bothered about going in the studio, you know what I mean? But I’m glad he did.”

Noel Gallagher Refused To Sing At Lars Ulrich's Wedding

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich asked Noel Gallagher to sing at his wedding.

The heavy metal icon is a huge Oasis fan and became firm friends with the 'Wonderwall' hitmaker after they met in the mid-90s.

Lars, 52, was desperate for Noel to serenade him and model Jessica Miller when they tied the knot but the 48-year-old musician refused to be a wedding singer for one night.

Speaking as he hosted a special show for Absolute Radio - which can be listened to at Absoluteradio.co.uk - Noel said: "Lars is great you see. He's a huge Oasis fan. And he's a friend of mine.

"The first autograph I ever signed on American soil was for Lars. I didn't even know it was him. He said, could you make it out to Lars Ulrich and I wasn't looking at him. I said, what the drummer from Metallica? And he went yeah. And I looked and there he was. I was just like, god.

"I love Lars. I speak to him irregularly quite often. He asked me to perform at his wedding. I declined that - that was a bit weird. But he's a good lad Lars."

Lars has always been fulsome in his praise for Noel - who was in Oasis with his brother Liam Gallagher before quitting the group in 2009 - and his talents as a songwriter.

The 'Enter Sandman' rocker previously revealed Oasis has been the "soundtrack" to his life.

Lars said: "Oasis has been the soundtrack to my life for the last 20-plus years on this wonderful planet. 'I have stories and pictures in my mind that go along with everything, from the first time I heard particular songs and read certain articles, to hearing about the band's shenanigans and festivities.''

Noel Gallagher Regrets Forgetting His Time With David Bowie

The 48-year-old former Oasis star was introduced to the music legend - who passed away in January from cancer at the age of 69 - backstage at his concert at Wembley Stadium in London in 1995.

Noel wishes he hadn't been so intoxicated at the time and admits if there wasn't a photo of the two pop icons together he'd have no memory of their encounter.

Speaking as he hosted a special show for Absolute Radio - which can be listened to at Absoluteradio.co.uk - he recalled: ''I went to see Bowie at Wembley Arena and he was being supported by Morrissey. ''Somebody came up to me and said would you like to come and meet David. And I was like, 'Yeah of course.' There's a picture of it, of me and him and I've obviously said something funny to him, because he's in hysterics and I've no idea what I've said to him. Had that picture not existed I don't think I'd have any recollection of ever meeting him. Apart from where I remember being taken into his dressing room and it was like I was too young and too wasted for it to dawn on me that I was meeting one of the greats.''

Noel is a massive fan of the 'Space Oddity' hitmaker and is expected to take to the stage at the BRIT Awards as part of a super-group that will pay tribute to Bowie.

The 'Lock All the Doors' singer can remember listening to his music all the time when he was younger and cites him as a major influence on his own career.

Noel - who covered Bowie's hit 'Heroes' as a B-side to the 1997 Oasis single 'D'You Know What I Mean?' - recalled: ''I was into him like right early on. I used to have this cassette that when we were driving round Manchester on the dole and it was two songs of David Bowie followed by two songs of T Rex followed by two songs of Slade on a C90 cassette.''

On This Day In Oasis History...

Ex-Tory MP Louise Mensch Claims She Used To Date Noel Gallagher

Louise Mensch, the former Conservative politician, has claimed that he she once dated Noel Gallagher.

Mensch, who was Tory MP for Corby from 2010 to 2012, recently made the claims in a Twitter post, telling one of her followers: "It['s] probably going to kill you when I tell you I went out with Noel for a couple of months".

Before becoming a MP, Mensch (previously Louise Bagshawe) worked in the music industry as a PR and in marketing. She is currently married to Metallica and Muse's manager Peter Mensch.

Mensch joined the Labour Party in 1996 before rejoining the Tories a year later. In a recent tweet, she appeared to suggest that Oasis guitarist Gallagher was an influence on her brief shift of allegiance.

Noel Gallagher famously backed Tony Blair ahead of the 1997 General Election, later saying: "It was a great time in history. The grip of Thatcherism was being smashed. New Labour had been brilliant in opposition. When Tony Blair spoke, his words seemed to speak to people, young people. Call me naive but I felt something – I’m not quite sure what it was, but I felt it all the same."

NME has approached Louise Mensch to clarify her tweets.
