Gallagher Blames Brother For U.s. Flop

OASIS rocker NOEL GALLAGHER blames his brother LIAM for the band's failure to crack America.
The Wonderwall hitmakers were one of the biggest British bands of the 1990s and were expected to replicate their success in the States when touring their hit album (What's The Story) Morning Glory? in 1996.
But singer Liam pulled out of several shows at the last minute - telling reporters he had to go house-hunting.
And guitarist Noel is still fuming that his brother blew the band's chance of becoming as big as fellow rockers U2.
He says, "I still blame him for the fact that we never cracked the U.S. When we had one of the biggest selling albums in the world, and were about to begin a crucial U.S. tour, he arrived at the airport, gave some ludicrous excuse that he couldn't get on the plane, and left us stranded."
