Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher -- now the frontman of Beady Eye -- told Live Magazine that he'd rather still be in Oasis. Gallagher, who is working on a new Beady Eye album at the moment, says people have the wrong idea if they think he's anti-Oasis.
Noel Gallagher might have joined his brother’s band, Oasis. But he also became its creative force. Noel’s gift for writing hit songs put Oasis on the map in the early '90s. Their 1995 album, What’s The Story (Morning Glory), which featured the hits “Wonderwall” and “Don’t Look Back In Anger,” sold more than 14 million copies worldwide and propelled the band to international stardom.
Last night, GuitarWorld.com's Josh Hart and I attended a listening session for Noel Gallagher's upcoming post-Oasis solo album, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, which comes out November 8 on Sour Mash Records.
All Liam Gallagher wanted was an apology. When we announced last week that Liam was suing his brother Noel over "lies" surrounding the breakup of Oasis, he never made mention once of a monetary sum in his official statement.
"Everyone knows that if you’ve got a brother, you’re going to fight." We used that quote from Liam in our article on "The Best Liam and Noel Gallagher Insults." Of course, those insults were for the most part all in good fun, but now it seems the back-and-forth arguments in the press are about to lead to court.
Anyone who is familiar with British rock knows all too well the antics of the Gallagher brothers, Liam and Noel. Their love/hate relationship made for great music and press during Oasis' 18-year run. But in August 2009, the brothers called it quits, and Beady Eye was born. Their debut album, Different Gear, Still Speeding, was released in February.
