Stephen Baldwin - Stephen Baldwin Helps Woman Who Suffers A Seizure

Actor Stephen Baldwin has been hailed a hero after coming to the aid of a woman who suffered a seizure in a New York bar.
The Usual Suspects star was dining at the Peninsula Hotel on Thursday evening (09Aug12) when he spotted the woman in distress and rushed to help her.
Baldwin tells the New York Daily News, "All of a sudden every head turned because there was this loud bang. It was this girl, fallen on the floor."
The woman started having convulsions and was foaming at the mouth.
The actor adds, "It was pretty violent."
Baldwin, who realised the woman was suffering an epileptic fit, kneeled down beside her, held her hand and "said a few prayers". The born-again Christian adds, "I wanted to make sure the young lady was OK and her breathing wasn’t restricted."
According to the actor, the seizure lasted more than three minutes before the woman came to.
Baldwin says, "She started going, ‘Where am I? What happened?' I asked, 'Do you have epilepsy?' and she said, 'Yes'. Then she started crying."
After the woman was attended to by a nurse, he spoke with her mother on the phone to assure her that her daughter was OK.
He adds, "The mom starting asking questions about the seizure. There are characteristics of the seizure that she has to report back to her doctor... When it was over, I never got her name and they never asked for mine. I’m just glad she was OK."
Ironically, the day had started in terrible fashion for the hotel - a man jumped to his death from the 22nd storey of the Peninsula.

Oasis Tipped To Play Glastonbury 2014, After Liam's Cryptic Tweets 4167581 News

An Oasis reunion could be on the horizon after frontman Liam Gallagher tweeted the letters of the band's name over the course of a few hours on Thursday evening (April 24, 2014). Bookmakers Paddy Power subsequently suspended betting on the band playing Glastonbury 2014.

OasisLiam Gallagher Hinted at an Oasis Reunion

Gallagher, who tweeted O, A, S, I, S, followed it up by posting, OASIS LG. 

Paddy Power tweeted, "Betting now suspended on #Oasis to play Glastonbury."

It is thought that Michael Eavis is still on the hunt for a third headliner for this year's festival, with Arcade Fire and Kasabian confirmed for two of the slots. Pixies are likely to headline The Other Stage and although Metallica were rumoured to take the third and final slot on the Pyramid - Oasis's close alignment with Kasabian could tempt Liam and brother Noel Gallagher to play. The band's last appearance at the festival, in 2004, was largely criticised.

Liam - who recently went through a divorce from Nicole Appleton - previously hinted at a reunion saying Oasis had "unfinished business" and suggesting that he and brother Noel could "bury for hatchet for a quick lap of honour". 

"There's unfinished business there. People ask would I get Oasis back together. I'd do it for nowt, but if someone's going to drop a load of f*cking money, I'd do it for that too. I don't think we'd ever make another record. I doubt we'll ever get back together," he told NME.

The Manchester brothers have made no secret of their willingness to perform big gigs and tours for megabucks and an Oasis reunion would be hugely lucrative for both. 

The band split in August 2009 after an alleged backstage bust-up in Paris, France and Noel reportedly turned down £20 million to reunite for an Oasis world tour in December last year.

Noel GallagherWould Noel Gallagher Be Up For A Reunion? 

Liam and Noel's brother Paul Gallagher told an Irish music documentary, "Liam was always going to carry on and do his own thing. I've got a funny feeling something might happen in the future, in two years' time, maybe three."

He went on: "All it takes is two guys to say, 'You know what, I'm sorry, but I love you.' That's all it takes, it's not hard. It's easy.

Adding credence to the rumours is the planned re-release of the band's debut album Definitely Maybe, which celebrates its 20th anniversary on May 19. 

Fans have already begun speculating on the mystery tweets. One fan wrote: "So @liamgallagher has done the s. What is he gonna tweet next? (sic)."

Another added: "Liam GallaGHER WHAT R U TRYING TO TELL US. (sic)"

Noel Gallagher working on seismic new album 4087501 News

Noel Gallagher has written more than 50 songs for a ''seismic'' new album.

The 'Everybody's on the Run' singer is ''whittling down'' the tracks for his second solo LP and long-time collaborator, Mark Coyle, claims the new material reminds him ''in some respects of the spirit'' of Oasis's 1994 debut record, 'Definitely Maybe'.

He told NME magazine: ''That boy is from a different planet, and even the fans won't believe how utterly amazing [the album] is. It's pouring out of him [right now].''

Noel, 46, released his solo debut 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' in 2011, which went to number one, after Oasis split in 2009, following a huge backstage argument in Paris, France with brother and band mate, Liam, 41, who went on to form his band, Beady Eye.

Mark, a sound engineer who co-produced Oasis's first album, reportedly heard a host of Noel's demos last month, following his recording sessions in New York, and described the new songs as ''f***ing great''.

He said:''The new record ... is so explosive that, on the day it comes out, Virgin Trains won't be able to cope with all the people trying to flee the chaos.''

Meanwhile, Oasis sent the internet into meltdown yesterday (26.02.14) after they announced they will re-release their debut album, with added unheard tracks, to mark the record's 20th anniversary.

Noel said in a statement: ''If anyone produced [those sessions], it was [Mark]. He put out the mics and was twiddling the knobs.''

The original line-up of Oasis that recorded the album was made up of singer Liam, guitarist and songwriter Noel, rhythm guitarist Bonehead, bassist Paul 'Guigsy' McGuigan and drummer Tony McCarroll.

The re-mastered 'Definitely Maybe' is out on May 19.

Oasis Reunion in 2014? Probably Not, But Watch This Space 4085321 News

Following Facebook and Instagram posts last night, Oasis fans were dusting off their parka coats and bucket hats, calling their brothers "r kid" and swaggering down to their local clutching a two-pound coin to play Standing on the Shoulders of Giants in its entirety, on the jukebox. 

Liam GallagherLiam Gallagher Performing with new band Beady Eye

And then came the news that the "cryptic message" that read "February 26 - 9am" was not in fact signalling the announcement of a reunion tour or new album, but instead marking the reissue of the band's 1994 debut Definitely Maybe on its 20th anniversary, on May 19.

The reissue will include rare and unreleased recordings and will be available as a CD, digital digital and a three-disc special edition version including rare recordings demos. A 12" vinyl LP will also go on sale, as well as a 12" vinyl of 'Supersonic' to coincide with this year's Record Store Day on April 19.

Though the anti-climax will disappoint Oasis fans, the anniversary releases are probably a precursor to some form of reunion for Noel and brother Liam. The famous squabbling brothers have made no secret of their openness to big money offers and their dispute following a backstage row in 2009 provides the perfect narrative for a conciliation. 

<iframe src="//instagram.com/p/k2fsb8vdIk/embed/" width="636" height="710" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>

That said, The Sunday People reported in December how Noel had turned £20 million to reunite for an Oasis world tour, with Paul Weller and the Happy Mondays lined up as special guests. The jaunt apparently included two gigs at Knebworth. 

Original guitarist Bonehead told The Mirror that Liam would be open to a reunion, though that the sticking point was singer-songwriter Noel.

"If someone said, 'Here's a field, here's a stage and here's 200,000 people,' I'm sure Liam would jump up and do it, and I don't think it would even take anyone offering him a massive bankroll of money. He'd do it because that's what he loves, that's his passion," he said.

Noel Gallagher's Oasis film in pipeline 4074102 News

Noel Gallagher has been approached by a studio to make a film about Oasis.

The band's former guitarist - who has barely spoken to brother Liam since their group split in 2009 - has revealed that he is considering the offer.

Speaking at The Weinstein Company BAFTA after party on Sunday (16.02.14), he told The Sun newspaper: ''People have seriously approached me about that.

''It's something that's very strange but very tempting.

''If it means I get to come here and watch Brad Pitt eat a bit of salmon then I'll make a film a year if I can.''

The 46-year-old musician, who attended the event at London's Rosewood Hotel with his wife Sara, wants actor Michael Fassbender to take the lead role in the new film but didn't specify whether he would want the star to play himself or brother Liam, 41.

The 'Wonderwall' hitmaker claims the working title for the film is '20 Years A Geezer'.

Although he complained about the music at the Weinstein party, calling it ''utter s***e'', Noel had fun rubbing shoulders with Hollywood stars.

He was seen chatting to Bradley Cooper during dinner at The Grosvenor House Hotel before the awards and actress Emma Thompson gave him a huge hug.

Meanwhile, Liam is set to hold castings in Los Angeles for a new Beatles film and has convinced Michael Winterbottom to direct the movie about the band's company Apple Corps and the break-up of the group.

Johnny Depp wants Stones to be his wedding band 4052221 News

Johnny Depp wants The Rolling Stones to play at his wedding, it has been claimed.

The 50-year-old actor proposed to girlfriend Amber Heard - who he met on the set of their film 'The Rum Diary' in 2011 - on Christmas Eve (24.12.13) and though they haven't set a date for their nuptials yet, he has asked his friend and 'Pirates of the Caribbean' co-star Keith Richards if he and his band will provide some music.

A source told Now magazine: ''The wedding plans are at an early stage. But the one thing Johnny does know is he wants Keith and the guys there He might even ask to join them on a track or two.''

Johnny is known to be an excellent guitar player and previously teamed up with Marilyn Manson for a version of Carly Simon's 1972 hit 'You're So Vain' for Manson's album 'Born Villain'.

The actor also provided slide guitar on the Oasis track 'Fade In-Out' on their 1997 album 'Be Here Now' after being invited to play on the LP by Noel Gallagher, who he was close friends with at the time due to their respective relationships with Kate Moss and Meg Mathews.

It was recently claimed Johnny and Amber, 27, are planning on having an intimate wedding on the Hollywood star's private beach in the Bahamas.

A source said recently: ''They're having a small intimate ceremony barefoot on the beach in Little Hall's Pond Cay.

''Afterwards they'll have a barbecue where some of Johnny's musician pals are going to perform, followed by limbo dancing.

''Neither Johnny nor Amber want a big, glitzy Hollywood bash. They are both very private.''

Noel Gallagher performs at Kate Moss' birthday 4033371 News

Noel Gallagher sung to Kate Moss at her 40th birthday party.

The former Oasis star was cheered on by a number of guests as he broke into the catchy acoustic of 'Happy Birthday' at 6am yesterday (19.01.14) in celebration of the supermodel's milestone age.

Kate - who kicked off her celebrations with a posh lunch on Thursday (16.01.14) - reportedly spent £30,000 on entertainment for the big bash at her Cotswolds home on Saturday night (18.01.14).

Florence and the Machine, Mark Ronson, Soul II Soul and Massive Attack performed in yurts in the garden, while there were also tarot card readings, fire jugglers and face-painters on hand throughout the Glastonbury-themed party.

The blonde beauty reportedly paid out a hefty £80,000 on spirits and an endless supply of champagne to keep her guests entertainment.

Uma Thurman, Naomi Campbell and Stella McCartney were just a few of her famous friends in attendance, but all mobile phones were to be handed in at the door to stop any drunken photos being uploaded to Twitter or Instagram.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Everyone knew it was going to be a wicked party, which it was.

''It was truly epic and isn't even over yet... ''

Meanwhile, Kate hired the dining room at a local pub last night (19.01.14) for her and the remaining guests who were still standing after a boozy four days of partying.

Oasis to reform in 2016? 4021517 News

Former Oasis manager Alan McGee believes the band will reunite in 2016.

The record label owner is confident the 'Wonderwall' hitmakers will reform for their 25th anniversary, in two years time, after their split in August 2009 when Noel Gallagher quit the band following a backstage bust-up with his brother Liam in Paris, France.

Alan said: ''Liam and Noel have got to do it. I think we'll have to wait for the 25th anniversary in a couple of years. They're brothers. You can never predict how things work out.''

Meanwhile, Alan - who also managed Primal Scream, The Jesus and Mary Chain under his label Creation Records - admits his rock and roll lifestyle almost killed him.

He explained: ''Hanging out with Oasis was exhausting. I'd go from one night with Liam and Noel to a night out with Primal Scream. I'd be down in Wales with Oasis recording the album, doing drugs every night. They'd arrive in London and I'd go on another two-dayer with them.''

Alan had a breakdown in 1994 just as Oasis topped the charts with their debut album 'Definitely Maybe' and they became the biggest band in the UK, but he admits he felt some sort of resentment for their success.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, he recalled: ''One morning I went to church. I came out knowing it wasn't the answer, got back into my house and there was a voice message. 'Hey we're No1 with 'Definitely Maybe!'' I just wiped the message, didn't even smile. I felt like I'd paid the price for everyone else to have a good time.''

Liam and Noel Gallagher end feud 4013540 News

Liam and Noel Gallagher have reportedly ended their feud.

The brothers have barely spoke since a huge backstage bust-up ended their band Oasis in August 2009, but the pair recently met up at a family wedding in Ireland and buried the hatchet and are now even planning to open a bar together with their beloved mother Peggy.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Liam initially came up with the idea after a recent trip to Manchester with his mum Peggy.

''Then between them they thought Noel should also be brought on board.

''The brothers are thinking about an indie rock-themed place which serves artisan food.''

The pair plan to call their bar 'Champagne Supernova' after the Oasis anthem - which was included on the band's seminal album '(What's the Story) Morning Glory?' - of the same name and hope to finalise their deal at an underground venue close to the Deansgate and Spinningfields area of Manchester.

The insider added: ''The brothers are consulting their famous friends such as Russell Brand and Holly Willoughby for advice on the venue.

''They reckon a hot new bar could bring them together again.''

While the business move doesn't mean Oasis will be getting back together, the group's original guitarist Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs - who left the band in 1999 - recently predicted a musical reunion will happen eventually.

He said: ''If someone said, 'Here's a field, here's a stage and here's 200,000 people,' I'm sure Liam would jump up and do it, and I don't think it would even take anyone offering him a massive bankroll of money. He'd do it because that's what he loves, that's his passion.''

Since the super-group disbanded Liam, 41, started new band Beady Eye, while 46-year-old Noel has embarked on his own solo project, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

Noel Gallagher Goes on the Rampage. Arcade Fire, Look Away Now 3985040 News

Nobody escaped unscathed from Noel Gallagher's summary of music in 2013, apart from maybe Kanye West and David Bowie. The former Oasis man agreed to phone interview with Rolling Stone magazine to chat about his "f*cking shit year" hanging around the house and waiting for the year end. 

Noel GallagherNoel Gallagher Performing At V-Festival

Things started off on a positive note, with Gallagher hailing David Bowie's surprise comeback record The Next Day as a "f*cking masterpiece, saying, "I love it. Nobody has the right to be that f*cking good at this point in their career. Apart from Neil Young, all of the people that are in his league are basically f*cking shit. Do you know what I mean?"

He went on to call 'half' of the Arctic Monkeys album "really f*cking good" and claimed he'd listened to a Kanye West album for the first time.

"I'm not really a fan of his or anything like that," he said, "I don't really like that kind of modern hip-hop, whatever you call it. But somebody told me to watch this interview he did in England [with BBC DJ Zane Lowe], so I watched it, and I thought it was one of the best interviews I've ever seen. I f*ckin' loved it! Especially the bit about the leather jogging pants or whatever he's going on about, f*cking claiming he invented them."

2013 was the year that brought us Get Lucky, Wrecking Ball and Blurred Lines, but Noel only had something positive to say about one of those tracks. First up for a dressing down was Robin Thicke.

"I don't mind it. It sounded good on the radio. Got a bit annoying after the five millionth time you've heard it. I think he's going to be a one-hit wonder, surely. It'll be like that guy who's done "Gangnam Style" - we'll never hear from him again," he said of the American star.

"She was on TV recently, Miley Ray Cyrus, and it was just like, "What the f*ck is all this about?" he said of the controversial Bangerz singer, "I don't know. It's a shame, because it puts all the other female artists back about f*cking five years. Now, Adele and Emili Sande - that music, to me, is like music for f*cking grannies, but at least it's got some kind of credibility."

Daft Punk's summer anthem ticked all the boxes for Gallagher. "I'm not interested in the album," he said, "It's all about that song, isn't it? It's so effortless and brilliant and now. It's got everything. You just think, "Has this song always been around, or am I just hearing it for the first time?" It's f*cking amazing.

"My favorite act at this year's Glastonbury, when I went, was not the Rolling Stones, as great as they were; was not the Arctic Monkeys, as good as they were; was not Disclosure, as good as they were; but it was Chic. They were f*cking mega. Absolutely out of this world. Unfortunately [Nile Rodgers] didn't play "Get Lucky," but what an amazing, amazing track."

Most critics had Arcade Fire's comeback record Reflektor in their Top 10 list, but the group's reputation suffered a little when they issued fans with a dress code for their upcoming shows before back tracking.

"I haven't heard it," Gallagher said of the album, "Anybody that comes back with a double album, to me, needs to pry themselves out of their own asshole. This is not the Seventies, okay? Go and ask Billy Corgan about a double album. Who has the f*cking time, in 2013, to sit through 45 minutes of a single album? How arrogant are these people to think that you've got an hour and a half to listen to a f*cking record?"

When gently nudged by the interviewer to discuss the whole dress code thing, Noel said, "Well, what's the point of that? Do you know what the point of that is? That is to take away from the sh*t disco that's coming out of the speakers. Because everybody's dressed as one of the Three Musketeers on acid. "What was the gig like?" "I don't know, everyone was dressed as a teddy bear in the Seventies." "Yeah, but what was the gig like?" "Ah, f*ck knows, man, I have no idea. I was dressed as a flying saucer." "Yeah, but what was the gig like?" "F*ck knows. I don't know."

Elsewhere in the interview, Gallagher confirmed he wouldn't be releasing a new album in 2014 because he hadn't even started recording it yet. "I hope to do some recording in New York, because I've never done it before, and maybe on the off chance I might bump into David Bowie somewhere on the street, and get him to come down to the studio, dressed as an elf, and do a little mime while I'm putting an acoustic guitar track," he said.

Nobody escaped unscathed from Noel Gallagher's summary of music in 2013, apart from maybe Kanye West and David Bowie. The former Oasis man agreed to phone interview with Rolling Stone magazine to chat about his "f*cking shit year" hanging around the house and waiting for the year end.

Things started off on a positive note, with Gallagher hailing David Bowie's surprise comeback record The Next Day as a "f*cking masterpiece, saying, "I love it. Nobody has the right to be that f*cking good at this point in their career. Apart from Neil Young, all of the people that are in his league are basically f*cking shit. Do you know what I mean?"

He went on to call 'half' of the Arctic Monkeys album "really f*cking good" and claimed he'd listened to a Kanye West album for the first time.

"I'm not really a fan of his or anything like that," he said, "I don't really like that kind of modern hip-hop, whatever you call it. But somebody told me to watch this interview he did in England [with BBC DJ Zane Lowe], so I watched it, and I thought it was one of the best interviews I've ever seen. I f*ckin' loved it! Especially the bit about the leather jogging pants or whatever he's going on about, f*cking claiming he invented them."
