Spinal Tap Star Shocked By Gallagher's Confusion

THIS IS SPINAL TAP star HARRY SHEARER is horrified by NOEL GALLAGHER's recent confession his younger brother LIAM thought the 1980s spoof rockers were a real band.

Last week (ends24JUN05) OASIS songwriter Noel said his sibling had stormed out of a performance by the stars of Spinal Tap after discovering they were a fake group.

Noel smirked, "He thought they were real people. We went to see them in Carnegie Hall (New York). He'd seen the film and loved it and thought they were a real band."

Shearer, who played dopey bassist DEREK SMALLS in the cult classic, laughs, "I can't believe that.

"I've met musicians who say they can't watch the film because it's too close to the real thing, but no one actually thought they were real."
