Noel Gallagher will attend Glastonbury Festival on June 23 to kick off a screening of the Oasis documentary 'Supersonic' by Mat Whitecross.
The legendary rock group's guitarist might not be playing the iconic music extravaganza, but he'll make the special appearance at 9pm at the William's Green tent on June 23.
Meanwhile, the 'Live Forever' hitmaker - who recently turned 50 - recently revealed his new record with High Flying Birds will be released on November 9.

The original 1996 movie's crew made the revelation at a Q&A session this week.
One of the reasons why the movie Trainspotting was so beloved back in 1996 was its soundtrack, full of stars from the contemporary world of Britpop such as Elastica, Pulp, Underworld and Leftfield. But one of the biggest names in music was missing: that of Oasis, the biggest name on the scene.
It turns out that the Manchester legends were offered the opportunity to record a track for the movies, but that Noel Gallagher turned it down because he presumed the film to actually be about trainspotters, rather than poverty-stricken heroin addicts in Edinburgh.

Liam Gallagher believes his stubborn brother Noel has stopped an Oasis reunion because he'd rather be a solo artist.
The 44-year-old singer and his older sibling have been at loggerheads since they fell out in 2009 when he quit the group but, although he's not overly interested in making up with the 49-year-old rocker, he believes Noel's determination to be a solo artist is shattering the chances.
Taking part in a Q&A with Johnny Vaughan at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium for Radio X, the 'Songbird' songwriter was asked to get Oasis back together.

Liam Gallagher has threatened he might ''f*** off forever'' if his solo album is unsuccessful.
The 43-year-old singer songwriter - who embarked on his solo career after he split from the band Oasis because of a feud with his brother Noel - has admitted he will disappear off of the music radar if his upcoming LP isn't a hit.
Speaking to the Metro newspaper, he said: ''I've done the Beady Eye thing and that didn't come off and I thought maybe I'll just have a break, but I wrote these songs, and I thought, what else can I do? This album if it does well we crack on and do another one.

Speaking at the premiere of the Oasis documentary movie 'Supersonic', Liam claimed he'd be up for a reunion - but won't apologise to Noel to make it happen.
The 44 year old singer and former frontman of Oasis has said that the band should never have split up back in 2009, and said that his “bags are packed” in the event that he gets an offer to reunite with them.
He told Sky News at the launch of the new Oasis documentary movie Supersonic, directed by Mat Whitecross and released on Sunday (October 2nd): “If it happens tomorrow, I'm ready, my bags are packed. If it happens in a year, I'm still ready, if it happens in 10 years, I'm still ready.”
The brothers have been feuding for years and are unlikely to reunite anytime soon.
Liam Gallagher thinks his brother Noel is a “potato”, who takes his style from Gary Barlow
Noel got the chance to dine with one of his heroes in the South of France last month, but the recognition wasn't mutual.
Noel Gallagher has admitted that Hollywood legend Robert De Niro didn’t have a clue who he was when the pair ended up having lunch together in the South of France. Gallagher set next to the Taxi Driver star during what became a marathon eight-hour lunch session last month, but afterwards Gallagher said De Niro was still none the wiser about Oasis.
The younger Gallagher brother took to Twitter this week to declare that "plastic rock n rollers" should "be afraid".
43 year old Liam has musically been silent for a while, ever since his first post-Oasis project Beady Eye disbanded in 2014 after only two albums. In his own, inimitable style, he took to Twitter on Wednesday night (July 21st) to fire a warning shot to “plastic rock n rollers” that he was coming back for what was rightfully his.
Liam Gallagher has teased a possible return to music
The former Oasis singer is said to finally be ready to go solo.
Liam Gallagher is said to be ready to make music again, nearly two years after his group Beady Eye disbanded. The frontman is reported to be heading to the studio to record his first solo music, after realising that an Oasis reunion with brother Noel is unlikely.
Liam Gallagher is said to be heading back to the studio.
A source told The Sun: ‘The penny has finally dropped with Liam. He can’t make any money sitting on his backside and with four kids to pay for, a divorce and a lavish lifestyle to keep up, extra cash will be handy.’

The former Oasis songwriter played his own 'Live Forever' in tribute to Prince, at the High Flying Birds gig in Glasgow on Thursday night.
Noel Gallagher took the opportunity to pay tribute to the late pop icon Prince on the opening night of his latest UK tour last night in Glasgow, as the venue’s operators bathed the outside of the SSE Hydro Arena in purple light in honour of the star.
As reported late on Thursday (April 21st), Prince was discovered dead, reportedly in an elevator, at his Paisley Park home and studio complex in Minnesota at the age of just 57. No cause of death has yet been stated, but tributes have been flooding in from around the music world ever since the news broke.

Oasis secured all of the top FOUR spots in the first ever Radio X 'Best of British' online poll.
In a revelation that will surprise precisely nobody, Oasis have thoroughly dominated a poll conducted by Radio X to discover the best British song of all time, securing not only the number one spot with ‘Wonderwall’ but also the rest of the top four.
There’s been plenty of scorn directed at the online poll, which has been run by the overwhelmingly white male-oriented station over the last week, as the now-defunct Manchester group had their songs ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’, ‘Champagne Supernova’ and ‘Live Forever’ named as the rest of the top four respectively.

Noel had recently branded 1D as "c***suckers" and claimed they weren't worthy of fame.
Directioner Liam Payne, 22, laid into Gallagher in an interview with BBC Radio 1 on Wednesday (December 16th), adding that Noel had previously met them and been friendly to them, even on the day that the original interview was published.

The former Oasis frontman did not hold back when asked about Adele’s new album.
Noel Gallagher is never one for mincing his words and the outspoken singer’s latest target is Adele and her million selling album 25. The former Oasis frontman has described the album as 'cheesy music for f***ing grannies’, during an interview with Music Feeds.
25 is not on Noel Gallagher’s Christmas wish list.
When asked what he thought of Adele, Gallagher said: "If someone wants to know what I think of Adele, I’ll f***ing tell them… I just don’t see what all the fuss is about. I don’t like her music. I think it’s music for f***ing grannies.”

The John Lewis Christmas advert features Oasis song ‘Half The World Away’.
Liam Gallagher has reportedly hit out at brother Noel after he allowed Oasis hit ‘Half The World Away’ to be used as the soundtrack for the new John Lewis advert. According to The Mirror, Liam has even gone so far as banning him from visiting their family pub over the Christmas holidays.
Liam Gallagher has labelled brother Noel a ‘sell-out’.
A source told the newspaper, “Liam has been making his usual snidey remarks about the song being on the John Lewis advert. When he first heard about it he was ranting in his own local pub in Hampstead, north London, to just about anyone who’d listen.”

Gallagher sounded off again about Zayn's departure from 1D almost three months ago on James Corden's 'The Late, Late Show'.
Noel Gallagher has spoken out on Zayn Malik’s departure from One Direction in a new interview, expressing disbelief at the star’s choice not to tough it out with the group as, in his view, they have “at most, five years left”.
The former Oasis songwriter was talking to James Corden on ‘The Late, Late Show’ on Monday night, and said that he failed to grasp why Zayn would choose to quit the band when the group had a limited lifespan in any case. “I can't understand why he would do it,” he said, “because they've only got, at most, five years left.”

Contractors uncovered an ancient roundhouse, believed to be several thousand years old, on Friday (May 29th) while preparing the site for the festival.
The recent archaeological discovery at the new site of the T In The Park festival will not prevent the weekend-long event from going ahead, experts have confirmed.
Contractors preparing the site near Strathallan Castle came across what archaeological experts believe to be a 3,000 year old roundhouse, and works were immediately put on hold while the structure was examined.
The festival’s organisers, DF Concerts, had feared that the discovery would force them to delay or perhaps cancel this year’s festival, due to be held in July. Archaeological discoveries frequently hold back construction projects all over the world.

This is a reference to Noel Gallagher's criticism that modern pop stars and bands seem to be very focussed on their careers.
He’s one of the biggest musical acts in the world today and could be forgiven for living a life of excess, but Ed Sheeran is determined to keep his feet on the ground and not let his career slide away.
During a new interview with the Big Issue, Sheeran addressed Noel Gallagher’s infamous recent criticism of new artists being “careerists” and too focussed on the financial side of their music, and it would seem that he takes the label as a compliment.

Noel scotched widely reported rumours of an Oasis reunion later in the year, and blamed his brother for circulating them in the first place.
Furthermore, the 47 year old claims that he hasn’t at any point considered reuniting the beloved Britpop group, after he himself quit the band at a show in Paris in August 2009. At the time, Liam was reported to have broken one of his favourite guitars minutes before the band was due onstage at a festival.
Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, he said: “There was a rumour last week that we've had a gentleman's agreement [to reform Oasis], but that rumour's come from his people. It's a ‘source close to him’, and I'll tell you how close it is: she probably wakes up with him every morning. It's always left to me in an interview to let the kids down. People say, “You're breaking these kids' hearts”. Well, what the f***, man?”

Ospreys are reported to have built a nest within the noise disturbance 'buffer zone' that the law is required to enforce, leaving T In The Park hanging in the balance.
The annual T In The Park festival in Scotland is under threat of cancellation if the local council for its proposed new site at Strathallan Castle in Perthshire fails to approve its application.
Opposition to the move from environmental protestors has been gathering momentum following a recent report that nesting ospreys had arrived within a proposed 2,500 feet ‘buffer zone’ designed by law to protect such species.
Kasabian are set to headline T In The Park - but will it even go ahead?

The bands join Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds in Clapham Common this July.
Modest Mouse and Wolf Alice are the latest additions to the steadily growing line-up for Calling Festival 2015; a day festival that will see thousands flock to Clapham Common in London this summer to experience the latest and greatest in rock music.
Washington six-piece Modest Mouse and North Londoners Wolf Alice hit the Calling bill alongside the likes of headliners Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, and previously announced Ryan Adams and the Shining, The Hives, and Echo And The Bunnymen. The multi-stage festival is still to see further exciting line-up announcements in the coming weeks; the bill so far barely scrapes the surface of what to expect at this extraordinary event, which last year played host to more than 80,000 festival goers who congregated to experience Stevie Wonder and Aerosmith.

The 'Left Hand Free' hitmakers were singled out for criticism by the former Oasis man during an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this week. Both artists are due to headline Latitude Festival later this year.
The former Oasis man let rip at the band, who topped the album charts last year with their second album This Is All Yours, in an interview with Rolling Stone. He said that he was “in no way a fan of Alt-J” and that, despite buying their track ‘Left Hand Free’, said they could “f**k right off as far as I’m concerned.” When he was asked why, he replied: “I don't know. One of them's got a moustache, and that's unacceptable.”

Noel Gallagher doesn't regard Taylor Swift as a credible songwriter.
Noel Gallagher is on the promotional rounds for his latest album Chasing Yesterday and you know what that means - quotes, quotes, quotes. This week, he's been chatting to Rolling Stone and he had everyone from Taylor Swift to One Direction in his sights.

Having previously slated him, the outspoken former Oasis star has seemingly changed his mind about Ed Sheeran.
Noel Gallagher seems to have reversed his stance on Ed Sheeran, having previously described the ‘Sing’ star headlining Wembley as symptomatic of a world he couldn’t bear to live in. In a new interview with Shortlist, however, he was asked about his issues with Sheeran and replied “I won’t hear a word against him.”
So why the reversal? Normally when the former Oasis songwriter has a beef with someone, it rumbles on for years. Just ask Damon Albarn. But it appears that Gallagher’s change of heart is down to Sheeran following up on a promise to perform at the Teenage Cancer Trust show in the future.

T's new Perthshire home will welcome a group of amazing acts.
Amazing acts have been announced to perform at this year's T In The Park including Kasabian, Avicii and Fatboy Slim. Despite notorious festivals to match up to, it is looking very likely that this year that T in the Park will blow people away.
T in the Park has moved to it new home in the grounds of Strathallan Castle. Organisers DF Concerts and Tennent's Lager are ecstatic about the festival's first year here, playing host to 85,000 fans this summer. Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: 'This year is going to be a very special one for T in the Park as we make the beautiful grounds of Strathallan Castle our new home, and we're thrilled that some of the biggest artists in the world will be joining us in this historic first year.'

Noel Gallagher is not impressed with leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage
Noel Gallagher has dismissed Nigel Farage's chances of being Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, saying the UKIP leader is "mentally capable of running a corner shop, far less a f*cking country." In an interview with The Quietus, the singer-songwriter took swipes at the country's political leaders and tipped Boris Johnson to be the next PM.
Noel Gallagher says Farage is "mentally incapable" of running the country
"I'm not into politics any more, I don't read about it," he said, "These days, my own view is that if they truly, truly wanted to f*cking better the lives of the people, surely they must all realise that a little bit of conservatism married with a little bit of socialism, married with a little bit of fucking UKIP and a little bit of Green and a little bit of Lib Democrats would be kind of perfect."
The musician confesses 2013 was a hell of a year for his health.
Noel Gallagher thought he'd seen the worst of his health troubles with his years of substance and alcohol abuse, but he's now revealed that he was on the verge of death following his first High Flying Birds arena tour. There wasn't too much high hope for Noel Gallagher's post-Oasis career to reach the heights of his 90s glory, but when Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds reached number one with their self-titled debut album in 2011, they were propelled immediately into huge venues and impressive festival slots. However, returning to the stage and taking a much more frontal role took it's toll on Gallagher's health by 2013 in more ways than one.
Noel Gallagher on the brink of death with poor health
'It was awful,' he explained in an interview with The Telegraph. 'I had glandular fever, then I went for my annual health check-up and, honest to God, I felt all right when I went in, and the doctor made me feel like I was about to drop dead in the street when I came out.
The festival brings some exemplary headliners to the Netherlands this Summer.
The Netherlands' Best Kept Secret Festival won't be a secret for long if they keep introducing stellar acts such as this each year! The first line-up announcement includes Alt-J, The Libertines and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
Joining the third line-up for Best Kept Secret this June is some of the finest indie, rock, punk and electronic artists the world has to over, with 35 more acts yet to be announced. Alongside newly reunited headliners The Libertines on Friday, June 19th 2015 are alt-rock veterans The Jesus And Mary Chain, playing the full tracklist of their 1985 debut album 'Psychocandy'. Aussie chart topper Chet Faker will also make an appearance, with Alabama's St. Paul & The Broken Bones who are currently on their 'Half The City' tour.
The singer was supported by Ryan Keen at the Assago Forum show.
Language barriers weren't a problem for Ed Sheeran and his Italian fans as he hit the Assago Forum in Milan on Tuesday (January 27th 2015) as part of the European leg on his 'x Tour' to an adoring crowd that loved every minute of his epic setlist.
Ed Sheeran hit Milan during his X Tour
The red-haired popstar performed tracks from both his acclaimed debut album '+' as well as his latest album 'X' which went multi-Platinum upon its release in June last year topping charts in both the UK and US and impressing critics with various gems such as 'Sing' and 'Thinking Out Loud'.

The former Oasis star gave his typically forthright opinion of Britain's music scene today.
In an interview with NME as part of a round table discussion alongside fellow artists La Roux, Sleaford Mods and Courtney Barnett, the 47 year old guitarist said “Every single song in the Top 10 is the same s**t with a different voice. If you’re number one in the charts now, it automatically means you must be s**t.”

Did Liam Gallagher's tweets hint at an Oasis reunion at Glastonbury?
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.

Liam Gallagher and Beady Eye took to the stage at Glastonbury at 11am, though still drew a sizable crowd.
Liam Gallagher and his band Beady Eye played an unbilled set at the Glastonbury Festival on Friday morning (June 28, 2013), officially opening three days of music set to be headlined by Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons. The show took place on The Other Stage at the rather early time of 11am, though thousands made the journey from their soaked tents to watch the former Oasis man.

Though Beady Eye's show did not feature in the programme, frotman Liam has dropped a major hint earlier in the week, tweeting, "11am Friday - BE there or BE square.LG," while photographs showed the band travelling to Glastonbury on the train. Gallagher had always vowed never to return to the Pilton site following his former band's headlining set in 2004, telling The Sun, "The sound is s*** and really quiet. You can hear the crowd talking while you're playing.It's like Bond Street with mud, with loads of celebrities walking around in their boots and umbrellas. I'm not having it."

Liam Gallagher was rumoured to be playing Glastonbury, and duly opened the festival on Friday morning.
Liam Gallagher was given the enviable job of opening the 2013 Glastonbury Festival with a surprise set on The Other Stage on Friday morning (June 28, 2013). The singer, who aired his dismay for the festival following his former band Oasis' set in 2004, arrived on-stage and immediately launched into Flick of the Finger, a recent single for Beady Eye.

The cloudy weather and early start did nothing to deter the famous Mancunian, who was on typically brash form. "It's never too early for a bit of Rock'n'Roll aggro, is it?" asked Gallagher as his new band launched into Morning Glory, an Oasis hit written by his brother Noel Gallagher.

Liam Gallagher returned to his own stomping ground to launch Beady Eye's new record this week.
Liam Gallagher was mobbed by Oasis and Beady Eye fans as he stepped off a train at Manchester Piccadilly on Tuesday (June 11, 2013) to launch his new album BE in his hometown. Liam - wearing his trademark mac, jeans and desert shoes combo - signed autographs and posed for photographs on the train platform before heading to HMV on Market Street to launch the record.
Busy commuters stopped in their tracks and pulled out smartphones as the Manchester legend paraded through the city centre. Later, Gallagher invited 100 fans to an after-party at his designer store Pretty Green on King Street, reports the Manchester Evening News.
"On my way to Manchester centre of the universe," Liam had tweeted earlier in the day, before arriving in the north-west with band mates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock for an acoustic gig of tracks from the new album.
An unusual mixture of celebrities, Harry Styles, Noel Gallagher and Miles Kane are spotted among revellers at London's Groucho Club.
What do you get when you cross Harry Styles with Noel Gallagher and Miles Kane? Well, if you'd attended the Groucho Club last night you might've got some idea as the three of them were spotted enjoying a few drinks at the private members club. Though we're still not sure if they even spoke to each other, the thought of them together is a little bizarre and not only because of the One Direction hunk being thrown into the mix, but also for High Flying Birds star Noel, who must've had the shock of his life when he spotted Miles Kane pulling up who bears a remarkable resemblance to Noel's estranged brother Liam Gallagher. The dapper suit and tie might've given the game away though, even if the hair is spot on.
Albums of Note... It’s been a long two years since James Blake released his debut eponymous album and now, the pioneering producer returns with Overgrown, album number two. Peppered with quality collaborations, with hip-hop legend RZA and electronic music’s figurehead Brian Eno, Overgrown is the sound of an artist still trying to find his niche, but releasing high quality, accomplished tracks, whilst he’s on his journey. “Blake really is a talent to behold, as his ingenious moulding together of poles apart genres and production wizardry clearly shows… when you're already as accomplished at all manner of musical exercises as he is then it will obviously be hard to focus all this talent and all this energy into one place.”
Splitting opinion like musical Marmite, John Grant returns with Pale Green Ghosts. This album may sound unrecognisable as Grant, to anyone already familiar with his work. He’s hooked up with Gus Gus’ Biggi Viera and has decamped to Reykjavik. As a result, a new reliance on vintage-sounding synthesisers and a nod to club-land has John Grant sounding like an altogether different proposition to the John Grant of days gone by.“Grant's dyspeptic edge may be blunted, but when called upon the man can make a fine ass post-modern disco song, like we ever doubted that he could, and Blackbelt is a tweaked remix away from the transient world of A Lists, charts and chat shows. Cleverly poignant, its way with knock out disses would give Jake Shears something to think about if it proved to be a permanent change of direction…”
Liam Gallagher mocked brother Noel on Twitter for singing "backing vocals" for Blue. (Blur)
Liam Gallagher has blasted his brother Noel for performing with former Blur arch rivals Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon over the weekend. Former Oasis songwriter Noel teamed up with the Britpop pair at the Teenage Cancer Trust concert on Saturday evening (March 23, 2013) prompting a fiery response from his younger sibling.
"Don't know what's worse RKID sipping champagne with a war criminal or them backing vocals you've just done for BLUE ! LG x (sic)" tweeted Liam, also referring to Noel's decision to meet with Tony Blair following his election as Prime Minister. Liam, 40, and Noel, 45, have barely spoken since the latter quit Oasis in August 2009 following a fight with his younger brother, though both trade barbed insults regularly through the press.
Noel, Damon and Graham provoked rapturous applause after arriving on-stage together at London's Royal Albert Hall, though the performance was somewhat marred by the fact Paul Weller was on drums. The Evening Standard said The Jam star played "as though he'd never seen a kit in his life."

Ed Sheeran has denied going against his word to perform at Noel Gallagher's Teenage Cancer Trust shows.
Ed Sheeran has denied making false promises to Noel Gallagher about performing at this year's Teenage Cancer Trust show. The former Oasis songwriter accused both Sheeran and Mumford and Sons of pulling out of a verbal commitment to the play the show, which he curated.
Speaking to The Sun last week, Gallagher fumed, "I'd talk to Ed Sheeran and Mumford & Sons.. and I got let down a lot. Everybody says yes to your face. And then the agent will call and say, 'Ah, they're going to be in Australia at the time.' Really? Well, they never said that to me." However, the A-Team singer denies making false promises and claimed he would have played the concert had he not been in down-under. "I actually told him I would do the gig whenever he wanted, but the week they were planned I was in Australia," he explained on Twitter, "...with gigs already booked and sold out. Had it been any other time of course I would have made it happen but I found this out after I'd said yes. I think it would be worse saying no instantly without knowing to be honest."
Sheeran would have been a headline act for the show, which last night saw Rizzle Kicks and Labrinth perform. On Saturday, Noel teamed up with former rivals Graham Coxon and Damon Albarn for a special performance.

She might have been releasing a book last night (November 15), but there was nothing bookish about the behavior of supermodel Kate Moss and her guests in London, with more than a few stars being spotted leaving 50 St James somewhat dishevelled in the early hours. It had been a busy day for Moss, who'd been signing copies of her book earlier in the day at the Marc Jacobs store in Mayfair, but she was in no mood to let tiredness put her off partying - and neither were the rest of the revellers. Cara Develingne was among those seen leaving the venue somewhat worse for wear in the early hours, whilst a host of British stars also were in raucous spirits, including Noel Gallagher, football player Peter Crouch and girlfriend Abbey Clancy, Florence Welch, Pixie Geldof and her dad Bob, Stella McCartney, Radio One DJ Nick Grimshaw, Christopher Biggins and Jo Wood.

Kate Moss held a predictably lavish launch party for her new book, Kate: The Kate Moss Book at 50 St James Street, London, this week. After spending the early evening signing copies of the tome at Marc Jacobs' bookshop in Mayfair, Moss arrived at the bash to be greeted by the likes of Bob Geldof, Noel Gallagher, Florence Welch, Alison Mosshart and Donna Karan.
WWD.com's reporter said "It was hard to move at the party for Kate Moss' new book without coming nose-to-nose with a glass of Veuve Clicquot - or a famous person," and they caught up with Mr Gallagher to chat about the heady 1990s when his group Oasis and Ms Moss moved in similar circles. "She actually lived with me for a while," he revealed, "There would be more people waiting outside my flat to see her than there were for me. I would pop out to the shops and people would ask me, 'Is Kate in? Can you get me her autograph?" The pair met at a part in 1994, though Manchester-born Noel had no idea who Kate was, despite her being the most famous model in the world. "I had just moved down from Manchester and was not that familiar with the London scene. Two weeks later, I was in America and her face was everywhere, on billboards, on every magazine." As WWD.com's reporter moved downstairs, the party appeared to get worse. Quickly. Moss was seen high fiving DJ Nick Grimshaw and Sharleen Spiteri "took advantage of the club's secret smoking area."
Kate: The Kate Moss Book is available at all good book stores - and some rubbish ones - now.

The answer, of course, is no. But it's that time of year again folks: the Q Magazine Awards! Muse picked up the biggest gong at the event in London on Monday afternoon (October 22, 2012) known for rewarding middle-of-the-road and aging rock acts with offensively generic prizes such as one that now sits proudly on Matt Bellamy's mantelpiece.
Though Blur have been excellent in the handful of shows they've played since reforming, were they really befitting of best live act? Saying that, they were going up against The Stones Roses in a farce of a category. Dance act Underworld received the 'Innovation in Sound' award - whatever that is - while Jarvis Cocker picked up the 'Inspiration Award.' Q magazine editor Andrew Harrison told the BBC, "Our bands and our anthems transformed the Olympics... and amazing comeback shows from Blur and the Stone Roses showed the enduring appeal of our best-loved musicians." Hmm, ok Andrew, but what about the new British acts? Well, Emile Sande won best solo artist in another bizarre category featuring Noel Gallagher and Adele, while American soul star Bobby Womack won best album for 'The Bravest Man in the Universe.'
Elsewhere, Dexys Midnight Runners took home the Q Icon Award, Johnny Marr won Q Hero, and The Cribs won the 'Spirit of Independence Award.' Anyone hazard a guess at who won the Q 'Idol' award? Clue: frontman of The Killers. Sigh.
You really hear all there is to know about The Who along the way: from Tommy to two drug overdoses to the influence of guru Meher Baba (the "Baba" in "Baba O'Reilly") to the 11 people killed at a 1979 Who concert trampled trying to get into the show, still the deadliest concert event in American history. Even Townsend's run-in with the law over a child pornography incident earlier in the decade is covered, if only on a surface level.

With the upcoming Live 8 concert set to kick-off soon, Noel Gallagher has revealed that he doesn't believe that the concert will be successful.
Noel Gallagher has revealed that the Live 8 concert is unlikely to achieve what it set out to do - that being, convince politicians from some of the richest countries in the world to band together and wipe out the debts that poorer nations owe them. The Oasis guitarist has stated his belief that rock stars and musicians alone do not hold that sort of political sway, and they honestly do not have the power to influence the decision-makers within the G8.
Noel Gallagher doubts the success of Live 8
Believing that all the hard work will be in vain, Gallagher explained that: "Correct me if I'm wrong, but are they hoping that one of these guys from the G8 is on a quick 15 minute break at Gleneagles (in Scotland) and sees Annie Lennox singing 'Sweet Dreams' and thinks, 'F**k me, she might have a point there, you know?'
