Noel Gallagher Oasis

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.

Oasis Turned Down 'Trainspotting' Soundtrack Because They Thought It Was Actually About Trainspotters


Oasis Noel Gallagher Danny Boyle

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 Blames Brother Noel For Lack Of Oasis Reunion


Liam Gallagher Noel Gallagher

Liam Gallagher has blamed his brother Noel Gallagher for their band Oasis not having a reunion this year.

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 Will 'f*** Off Forever' If His Solo Album Is Unsuccessful


Liam Gallagher Noel Gallagher

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.

Liam Gallagher Noel Gallagher Oasis

Liam Gallagher has suggested that he is prepared to sign up for an Oasis reunion – but that he won’t go “cap in hand” to his older brother Noel in order to make it go ahead.

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.”

Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has taken to social media to tease a potential return to the music scene after a couple of years away.

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.

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.’

'Wonderwall' Voted Best British Song Ever By Radio X Listeners, As Oasis Dominate Poll


Oasis Noel Gallagher

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.

Archaeological Discovery Will Not Prevent 'T In The Park' Go-Ahead


T In The Park Kasabian The Libertines Noel Gallagher

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.

Noel Gallagher Denies Oasis Reunion Rumours, Blames Liam


Noel Gallagher Liam Gallagher Oasis

Noel Gallagher has denied recent reports that Oasis are due to reform, blaming his younger brother Liam for starting the false rumour.

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?”

Noel Gallagher Attacks Modern Bands For Being "Scared Of Social Media"


Noel Gallagher Liam Gallagher Oasis NME

Former Oasis star Noel Gallagher has launched a stinging attack on modern music and today’s bands, stating that if you score a Number 1 single it “automatically means you must be s**t.”

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.”

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.

Oasis Reunion In 2014? Probably Not, But Watch This Space


Oasis Noel Gallagher Liam Gallagher

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.

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.

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.

Russell Brand Sparks Fracas At GQ Men Of The Year Awards With Nazi Jibes

At the annual GQ Men of the Year Awards, Russell Brand sparked off a war of words between himself, Charles Moore, actor Jeremy Piven and a host of others, as the group embarked on a night long slanging contest that took place during their respective time on stage. According to the Evening Standard, the slang-off was sparked by Brand's ill-advised Nazi joke, which seemed to set the subject matter for the night early on.

GQ Men Of The Year Awards Descend Into Chaos Over Russell Brand, Nazis, Jews


Russell Brand Noel Gallagher

The GQ Men of the Year awards is always a rather boisterous affair. When you stick a load of preened rock stars, comedians, actors and journalists in the same room, give them free alcohol and tell them how stylish and brilliant they are: things are going to happen. And they did.

The controversy began when Russell Brand arrived on-stage to collect his 'Oracle' award, reminding the audience that the event's sponsor - high end designer Hugo Boss - was responsible for designing the SS uniforms during World War II. For all intents and purposes, they were pretty snappy outfits, though probably a period on the designer's history that it would rather forget.

"If anyone knows a bit about history and fashion, you know it was Hugo Boss who made uniforms for the Nazis. But they looked f***ing amazing," said Brand, to gasps in the room at the Royal Opera House, according to the Evening Standard.

Latest Promotional Stint Will See Beady Eye Performing On 'The Voice'


Beady Eye Noel Gallagher Liam Gallagher

Beady Eye recently dropped a new album and are hitting the campaign trail hard, including an appearance on The Voice this weekend. The band, formed mainly by the remaining members of Oasis, sans Noel Gallagher, released its second studio album – BE – at the beginning of this week and promotion for it has just been kicked into gear. Just this week, Beady Eye members Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell, Chris Sharrock and Jay Mehler have already made two promotional appearances – an intimate in-store gig at London’s Rough Trade and a signing at HMV in Manchester, according to Gigwise.

If their promo footage is to be believed, BE is supposed to be the opening of a brand new chapter.

"This will go out into the world, and our work is done, and that's our primary responsibility. And the gift that we get from doing something like this is the present. Like, when we press play,” Gallagher ever so eloquently puts it. "That's the highest gift anyone can have, it's like, 'Woah, f**k, we made something happen. I mean, life is about growth, it's about change."

"I come to the Ivor Novellos because One Direction aren't invited," said Noel Gallagher at this years Ivor Novello Awards, as the mouthy Mancunian commended the awards show for it's exclusivity and celebration of more obscure artists.

Among these often overlooked artists being recognised at Thursday's (May 16) event were three-time BRIT winning singer Emeli Sandé, who won two awards, Mercury Award winning act Alt-J, the multi-Oscar winning/nominated Randy Newman, and the multi-VMA and Grammy award winning Calvin Harris. Noel also picked up an award too, taking home the Outstanding Song Collection gong.

Speaking to NME on the red carpet just prior to the show, the former Oasis singer/guitarist said the reason he came to the awards show was "Because clowns like One Direction aren't invited, so it must be a good one" (and maybe the promise of an award would have enticed him in).

Relentless Potty Mouth: Why Noel Gallagher Can't Take X-Factor Job


Noel Gallagher

Noel Gallagher has confirmed that he was asked to take up one of the judge’s roles on X Factor but insists that he’s not interested in the job. mainly because he’d have to watch his language. An hour or two of not swearing every week? Too much for the Mancunian lad-rocker, it seems. He’d feel compelled to call Louis Walsh a “c***” apparently. Actually, perhaps we can sympathise with that one.

“Yes, I was asked to do it again,” said Gallagher but explained that his propensity for foul language pretty much rules him out of the race for the job: “You may be aware, I've got a slight case of Tourette's syndrome and I would just end up saying to Louis Walsh, 'Will you shut up, you c**t!'" Charmed, we’re sure. Noel also seemed to think that his fee would have be fairly astronomical, too – possibly not even one that the X Factor budget could stretch to. Working from the basis that Sharon Osbourne is getting paid one and a half million pounds for her appearance on the show, he reckons he must be worth at least £3 million. “If she's worth one and a half, what am I worth? Three? Three and three quarters? I've not got anything against the show, I just don't want to be on the telly every Saturday night. F**k that.”

Despite reports that Noel was considering the job because his daughter’s a fan of the show, it now appears that that is not the case. And he reckons he’s got better things to do with his time. Which, maybe he has. Maybe.

Riding On The Shoulders Of Dogs: Liam Gallagher Gets Wasted


Liam Gallagher Oasis Noel Gallagher

Liam Gallagher’s not one for ageing gracefully, bless him, not that the punters at The Old White Bear in Hampstead, north west London seemed to mind too much as he indulged in a boozy drinking session with his mates at the weekend, which culminated in him trying to ride around on a dog.

That’s right, the inebriated brother of Noel and former Oasis man hopped on board a passing dog and attempted to ride it like a pony. An onlooker commented “He tried to get on the dog’s back and they were just taking little steps — but it just didn’t work. It was really funny.” The group carried on drinking, including ordering £47 bottles of champagne, however after racking up a tab of more than £300 it looked like they might well depart without paying a penny –and not out of the kindness of the owners.

A source told The Sun: “The poor waitress serving them was crying when she thought she’d lost all the money, but the pub manager ran after him.” Thankfully the incident just seemed to be a bit of drunken forgetfulness, with the manager telling the paper “After £300 of drink you forget things. He was happy to pay straight away when I caught up with him.” Liam always was the more rock n’ roll brother of him and Noel, wasn’t he?

Noel Gallagher And Mick Jones' Daughters Unite For Peta Animal Cruelty Campaign


Noel Gallagher Mick Jones

Noel Gallagher (Oasis) and Mick Jones’ (The Clash) daughters have joined forces with the animal charity PETA for an ad campaign, encouraging people to report animal bullying.

With the tagline ‘Cruelty Doesn’t Fly With Us. Be An Angel For Animals,’ Ava Jones, 8, Stella Jones, 10 and Anais Gallagher, 13 are dressed in boots and tutus for the adverts, with wings and a halo drawn on each girl, afterwards. The photo shoot was taken by leading celebrity photographer Pal Hansen.

The purpose of the advert is to urge other children to report anyone that they see harming animals. The ad goes on to say “Only bullies hurt animals. Don’t be afraid to report them.” Noel’s daughter Anis said, in a press statement “We all know it's wrong to abuse animals, but it takes courage to speak up when we see an animal in trouble. If you suspect that somebody's hurting an animal, be brave and tell your parents, a teacher, PETA or a police officer. You could save that animal's life."

Nicole Scherzinger Reluctant For More X-Factor, As Simon Looks To Noel


Nicole Scherzinger Simon Cowell The X Factor Noel Gallagher

Nicole Scherzinger is giving X-Factor bosses a major headache ahead of the new series, which starts on ITV later this year. The American singer emerged as a hit member of the judging panel and mentored both finalists on the most recent series, though the ex-Pussycat Doll is releasing a new album in November on both sides of the Atlantic and will be required to be available for heavy promotion.

Overseen by Simon Cowell, X-Factor bosses have tabled a bid of around £1 million for Nicole to return to the show - according to The Sun - though she insists money is not a sticking point, which isn't hard to believe. She's already one of the most recognisable stars on the planet and, err, dates Lewis Hamilton. She told a pal: "I'm so torn right now. My heart wants me to come back and do the show as I had such a great time last year. But my album is coming out and I also need to focus on that. I don't think I can make it work. By trying to juggle the two, one or both will suffer," she told a pal.

Nicole pointed towards the intense criticism that Kelly Rowland received after missing some of the live shows during her tenure on the show, saying she didn't want to experience anything similar. It leaves Simon Cowell with work to do to reform his judging panel, with Gary Barlow the only member of the team thought to have signed on for another stint. ITV bosses are still unsure about the relevance of Louis Walsh, while a deal for Sharon Osbourne is yet to be done.

X-Factor Bosses Tell Noel Gallagher To "Name His Price" For Judging Spot


Noel Gallagher Simon Cowell The X Factor Gary Barlow Nicole Scherzinger Sharon Osbourne

X-Factor producers have officially approached Noel Gallagher for the second time with an offer to become a judge on the ITV talent show. The former Oasis guitarist, 45, has been at the top of Simon Cowell's wish list for a number of years, though Noel's management company Ignition have received the biggest offer yet from the Syco Music mogul, thought to be, essentially, a blank cheque.

A source told The Sun last night, "Simon is determined to get Noel on board. He sees him as his natural replacement as the real alpha male on the panel. He thinks Noel would be ideal, with his music knowledge, straight-talking and rapier wit." Cowell made a seven-figure offer to the rocker last year, though was knocked back as Gallagher prepared to release his No.1 album. Though Noel has made no secret of his openness to offers should the money be right, it may be his young daughter who emerges as the key to discussions. The source added, "Noel's daughter Anais is a huge fan of One Direction and X Factor, so she'll be nagging him to say yes." 

The guitarist appears to have the talents required to judge and mentor singing hopefuls. During an interview with Real Radio Yorkshire in 2011, Gallagher said, "I don't mind The X Factor.I've got an 11-year-old daughter; she's obsessed with it as all 11-year-old girls are. I was watching it on Saturday actually, and I managed to pick everybody they put through to the live finals." He also spoke of being approached by Cowell, "I know him and he was going 'we want you to be on it'" Noel said, "I was going 'you don't really want me on it - I won't put anyone through, and I can't have people round my house crying in the kitchen when I don't put them through because they'll frighten the cat."

Noel Gallagher Set For An X-Factor Judging Spot? Surely Not


Noel Gallagher The X Factor Simon Cowell

Will we be seeing Noel Gallagher preside over a judging chair on The X-Factor? Well if reports are to be believed, and if Simon Cowell gets his way, then we might well do.

The former Oasis guitarist has reportedly been offered a deal to judge on the talent show whereby he can name his salary. “Simon is determined to get Noel on board. He sees him as his natural replacement as the real alpha male on the panel,” a source told The Sun. “He thinks Noel would be ideal, with his music knowledge, straight-talking and rapier wit.” Given Gallagher’s public disdain for bands like One Direction, who were given their break on the talent show, it seems very unlikely that the mercurial rock star will take up the offer, but will his hand be forced? “Noel’s daughter Anais is a huge fan of One Direction and x factor, so she’ll be nagging him to say yes,” the source added.

Hatchet Buried: Noel Gallagher And Damon Albarn Unite Onstage For Teenage Cancer Trust


Noel Gallagher Damon Albarn Paul Weller

Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn put their notorious Britpop feud behind them this weekend to perform onstage together in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust concerts that Noel was charged with curating. In the heady days of 90s Britpop, the two musicians’ former bands were pitted against each other by the UK music press and frankly, they did little to dispel the drama. Gallagher famously wished death on Albarn and when their singles ‘Country House’ (Blur) and ‘Roll With It’ (Oasis) were released on the same day in 1995, music fans were forced to take sides.

The water is well and truly under the bridge now, though, as Noel and Damon joined each other onstage at the Royal Albert Hall show and performed Blur’s ‘Tender,’ with Noel on backing vocals. They were joined by Paul Weller on drums, though according to the Evening Standard, he played “as though he’d never seen a kit before.” In fact, the concert itself was relatively unremarkable, other than the momentous occasion of seeing Noel and Damon singing together – a sight that once seemed an impossible feat.

Noel’s own performance still has him pegged as a “work in progress” when it comes to taking the role of frontman, in The Guardian’s review. And at £75 a ticket though, most of Gallagher’s fans were probably hoping it would have been his brother Liam with whom he had reunited onstage.

NME Awards Johnny Marr 'Godlike Genius' Title, 2013


Johnny Marr The Smiths Modest Mouse The Cribs Morrissey Noel Gallagher

Johnny Marr will be crowned Godlike Genius of the Year at this year’s NME Awards. Marr, whose distinctive guitar licks were combined with Morrissey’s song-writing skills to make The Smiths the legendary band that they are, has also played in Modest Mouse and – more recently, joined the three Wakefield brothers The Cribs.

The NME Awards will be held at The Troxy in East London, on Wednesday February 27, 2013, where Marr will collect his gong. Marr’s about to release his debut solo album The Messenger and speaking about the award, said “It is a very nice thing to be getting this award and I am honoured. The NME seems to be good at giving this award to people I like so I’m in good company. I guess it means that some things are alright with the world.” His previous band mate Morrissey won’t be expecting any such honour any time soon; he has fallen out with the magazine on a number of occasions, most recently when they printed an article that he felt had branded him a racist.

The magazine’s editor, Mike Williams, said “All hail Johnny Marr, NME Godlike Genius 2013 and the newest recruit into NME’s holy order of music legends. And what a legend he is! Not content with rewriting the history of music with one of the world’s greatest ever bands, The Smiths, he’s continued to push boundaries and evolve throughout his career, working with some of the best and most exciting artists on the planet.” Johnny follows in the footsteps of 2012’s Godlike Genius, Noel Gallagher, which just goes to show, there’s no justice in the world. Or no huge commitment to chronology, perhaps.

Kate Middleton Discharged From Private Hospital, A Nation Breaths Sigh Of Relief


Kate Middleton Prince William Prince Charles Noel Gallagher

After enjoying the privileges that come with private healthcare, Kate Middleton has been released from hospital after suffering from severe morning sickness, The Guardian reports. She was admitted to hospital on Monday afternoon after becoming unwell at her parents' Berkshire home.

Smiling and assuring various journalists that she's feeling "much better", her and hubby Prince William left King Edward VII private hospital in London as they head to Kensington Palace so Kate can have a rest. The general feeling from the general public is relief, after the initial elation following the news of a new royal baby. Asked about the prospect of becoming a grandfather, Prince Charles said: "I'm thrilled, marvellous. It's a very nice thought to become a grandfather in my old age." He added: "I'm very glad my daughter-in-law is getting better, thank goodness."

Not everyone has been so forthcoming with messages of warmth for the royal couple in light of their news. Noel Gallagher; another national treasure - albeit for different reasons - showed air of nonchalance when probed on the subject at a press conference. "Well, they haven't become parents yet, have they?" he said when asked for a message of congratulations. "They're not the first people in the country to have a child, are they? I've got three so... you know."

Noel Gallagher On The Teenage Cancer Trust Gigs: "The Government Should Be Doing This"


Noel Gallagher Russell Brand

Noel Gallagher is curating the Teenage Cancer Trust's set of gigs; getting some of the biggest bands and comedians to entertain audiences at The Royal Albert Hall, and all to raise money for teenagers that are suffering from cancer.

It sounds like a fun job, curating a week of shows at a truly legendary venue, but according to Noel, it's something the government should be doing (helping teenagers with cancer, not prancing about on stage a la Russell Brand, although that would be funny, too).

"I don't feel I've got a moral obligation to do anything. I do it because it feels right to me, not because I'm morally obliged to do it, let's face it, the government should be doing it, not us" Noel told Contact Music at a press conference today. "It's like when you meet these kids and stuff like that you remember that you were a teenager once, albeit a long time ago but speaking for me personally, I do it because I want to, not because I should be doing it."

Noel Gallagher, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds Album Review


Anyone going solo after being in one of the biggest British bands of the past two decades is undeniably going to have a hell of a lot of expectation resting on their shoulders. With his debut release, Noel Gallagher not only risked the reputation he built for himself during his Oasis days but also comparisons against Liam's counterpart venture, Beady Eye. Fortunately for both him and his fans, the self-titled 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' certainly proves his individual worth with ten stunning tracks.
