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.
In support of his upcoming debut solo album, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, the elder Gallagher brother has announced a limited -- and we mean limited -- number of North American tour dates for this November.
While Noel may certainly seem like the busier Gallagher brother right now -- preparing to release his debut solo album in November, with another collaborative album to follow in early 2012 -- Liam wants everyone to know that he and the rest of Noel's ex-bandmates in Beady Eye aren't going away anytime soon.
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.
