No-asis For Liam Gallagher

Liam Gallagher is driving the rest of Oasis away.

The future of the band is in doubt following the departure of guitarist Noel Gallagher and despite the singer's intentions to continue, the rest of the group - guitarist Gem Archer, bassist Andy Bell and drummer Chris Sharrock - are unsure they can cope with the frontman's moods.

A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "It was always on the cards that Noel was to quit - the other band members saw it coming the night before he walked out.

"Some have already started to look for pastures new - as they have no idea how the new format of Oasis would work.

"Now that Noel has gone, no one else knows how they'll put up with Liam's big mouth. They saw how Liam treated Noel and don't know what will happen if he does the same to them. They have their doubts it can survive without Noel."

Noel quit the band last Friday (28.08.09) following a fist fight with his brother shortly before they were due to perform at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris.

During the altercation - in which one of Liam's treasured guitars was smashed - the frontman is said to have shouted: "You're no brother of mine."

After leaving the group, Noel, 42, issued a statement saying he could no longer continue working with Liam, 36.

The musician said: "The details are not important and of too great a number to list. But I feel you have the right to know that the level of verbal and violent intimidation towards me, my family, friends and comrades has become intolerable. And the lack of support and understanding from my management and bandmates has left me with no other option than to get me cape and seek pastures new."

Despite the acrimonious split, Liam and Noel's mother Peggy is hopeful they will reunite.

She said: "Liam adores Noel. They do love each other, but they've always been very different. I hope this isn't the end of Oasis. I don't think it is. They're just tired at the end of the tour. They've had fights before and got over it."
