'It's Not Happening': Noel Gallagher Will Not Reunite Oasis For Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame


Noel Gallagher Oasis

If you can believe it, 2019 will see the 25th anniversary of Oasis' first album 'Definitely Maybe', which means that the band will finally be eligible for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. However, Noel Gallagher insists he has no interest in the whole thing.

With all the talk about an Oasis reunion flying about (i.e. Liam Gallagher saying that he'd love one and Noel Gallagher vehemently shutting that idea down), it seems Noel has no plans to reunite the band for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019, should they be nominated next year.

Noel Gallagher Hates 'overrated' Brian Wilson


Noel Gallagher Brian Wilson Beach Boys Oasis

Noel Gallagher has insisted Brian Wilson is ''overrated'', adding that he ''hates'' the Beach Boys legend.

The Britpop icon took aim at the 'Good Vibrations' hitmaker in a scathing attack when his own experimental arrangements on 'Who Built the Moon?' were compared to those of the classic songwriter.

When it was suggested he got carried away in a similar way to Wilson, he fired back to Paste: ''F***in' hell - I hate Brian Wilson! And you know what? If there's a more overrated person in the music business than me, it's that guy.

Noel Gallagher Pushed To Go Further


Oasis David Holmes

Noel Gallagher's new album was stopped from sounding like Oasis by David Holmes.

The 50-year-old rocker was pushed and encouraged by the producer to ensure his latest High Flying Birds album, 'Who Built The Moon?' sounded like nothing he'd ever done before.

Recalling their recording sessions, Noel said: ''[Holmes would stop me and say] 'That sounds a bit like Oasis.' ''I'd be like, 'F***in good, though, right?' 'Well, yeah, but try something different.'

Metallica's Manchester Tribute


Metallica Oasis Lars Ulrich Kirk Hammett Noel Gallagher

Metallica performed Oasis 'Don't Look Back in Anger' in Manchester at the weekend.

The song has become an unofficial anthem for the North West England city since Manchester Arena was rocked by a terrorist attack after an Ariana Grande concert in May, and the 'Enter Sandman' hitmakers led their fans in a sing-along to the track during their sold-out gig at the venue on Saturday (28.10.17) evening.

Drummer Lars Ulrich tweeted a clip of bassist Robert Trujillo and guitarist Kirk Hammett performing the track and admitted the emotional moment had given him ''goosebumps''.

Noel Gallagher Puts An End To Oasis Reunion Idea Once And For All


Noel Gallagher Oasis

No matter how hard fans push for it, Noel Gallagher is adamant that there won't be an Oasis reunion in the future. His brother Liam might be well up for it, but not even the temptation of millions of dollars is enough to persuade Noel to reunite with his former bandmates.

Oasis fans should probably give up hope for a reunion now, because it seems like nothing is going to change Noel's mind. He's got plenty going on as part of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, and he doesn't see any point in getting the old crew back together.

Noel Gallagher has silenced rumours Oasis will reunite.

The 'Don't Look Back In Anger' hitmaker has been embroiled in a bitter row with brother Liam since the iconinc Britpop group's breakup in 2009, and he has shrugged off the idea of a nostalgic comeback, and he has insisted getting the band back together would be the ''death'' of him.

He told Q magazine: ''I've been very consistent about it. I don't need the money, I don't need the glory, I don't need to relive the memories.

Liam Gallagher Doesn't Think Solo Is Different


Liam Gallagher Oasis

Liam Gallagher insists his solo album ''doesn't feel any different'' to an Oasis record.

The 'Wall of Glass' hitmaker claims the spotlight has always been on him so going it alone is just the same as being in a band.

Speaking about his upcoming LP, 'As You Were', he said: ''It doesn't feel any different to an Oasis record.. I sing the way I've always sung and I still get the same hit.

Liam Gallagher Hints At Oasis Reunion For Manchester Arena Re-Opening


Oasis Liam Gallagher Noel Gallagher

Liam Gallagher just hinted at something that all Oasis fans have been desperate to hear for nearly a decade, suggesting that he might reconcile with his brother Noel to reunite the band for the re-opening of Manchester Arena next month.

The 21,000 capacity venue is due to re-open its doors in the coming weeks, with a star-studded benefit concert including Pixie Lott, Courteeners and Blossoms on September 9th to mark the official re-opening after the venue underwent refurbishment following the devastating terrorist attack back in May that claimed the lives of 22 fans at an Ariana Grande show.

Noel Gallagher’s solo project, The High Flying Birds, are topping the bill on the night, but Oasis fans quizzed his younger brother on why he wasn’t playing the show. The former Oasis frontman tweeted on Saturday (August 19th) that he could still appear at the gig - if he was asked.

Six Band Reunions We'd Love To See In 2017


White Stripes Hole Led Zeppelin Oasis The Verve The Kinks

The trend of big bands and artists from yesteryear making a comeback and touring old albums showed no sign of slowing down in 2016. Even small-to-medium sized acts have opted to coin it in and perform classic albums to their devotees. Mortgages have to be paid somehow.

And yet, there are a surprising number of huge bands who have thusfar resisted the temptation to get back together. Here are six bands we’d love to announce a reunion in 2017.

Oasis 'Supersonic' Movie Made Gallaghers' Rivalry Worse, Says Director


Oasis Liam Gallagher Noel Gallagher

Despite the resounding critical and commercial success, the recently released Oasis documentary movie Supersonic has actually made the rivalry between the Gallagher brothers worse, according to its director.

Mat Whitecross, who helmed the project, revealed that when he gave a preview screening to former frontman Liam Gallagher, he threw popcorn at the screen every time his brother Noel appeared.

Supersonic - Trailer and Clips


There were a number of defining bands of the 90's but Oasis were indisputably one of the biggest. Having formed in 1991, brothers Liam and Noel both had a great desire to be in the biggest band in the world, but the thought behind that was perhaps a little more basic; they wanted to make music. Though Noel was a relatively late member of Oasis, after he joined he became the main songwriter and the band focussed on recording the songs he'd previously written.

Touring the county with little money, the boys were offered a gig in Glasgow at King Tut's Wah Wah and made the journey from Manchester up to the Scottish town. Upon arrival, it was touch and go as to if the Mancunian's would even get to play but eventually they managed to get an opening slot for the night's proceedings  and they immediately caught the attention of Alan Mcgee who asked them to sign to his label there and then. McGee's deal with the band would come to fruition  some months later when he secured the UK rights to releasing the group's music.

By 1994 Oasis would have recorded a number of demos and they were finally ready to release their official debut single 'Supersonic' which would reach the dizzying heights of number 31 in the UK Singles Chart - which for a group yet to make names for themselves was actually pretty good!

10 Things The New Oasis Documentary Should Include


Oasis Liam Gallagher Noel Gallagher

Any Oasis fans who happened to see the powerful documentary film Amy earlier this year will have been delighted by the news that the team behind it is to make a piece about the Mancunian Britpop legends.

Asif Kapadia, who directed the Winehouse doc, is taking a production role on the as-yet-untitled project, with the rest of his team assisted director Mat Whitecross, himself having made the fictional Stone Roses-centred movie Spike Island and the Ian Dury biopic Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll.

With “unprecedented access” granted to the Oasis archives, we can hope for a ton of unreleased footage and music as the film-makers chart the entire history of the group. However, here are ten milestones in Oasis’ history that should definitely be included.

Forget Adele V Tom Waits, Here's 13 Songs We've Definitely Heard Before


Adele Bruno Mars Oasis

Adele's new song 'Hello' has had the internet going crazy these past few weeks; people are excited for the release of her upcoming comeback album '25' and thus have this across-the-board number one on repeat. However, as with a lot of hit tracks, it hasn't been without its criticism and in this case people are commenting on the remarkable similarity to a Californian storyteller we all know and love.

AdeleAdele waves 'Hello' to Tom Waits with new single

The Tom Waits comparison has, in itself, been critized; but whatever people say, the fact can't be ignored that the lyrics to 'Hello' do bare remarkable parallels with Waits' 1973 song 'Martha'. Both dictate a phonecall to a long lost lover, reminiscing about their early days and reflecting on their young, foolish selves. It's not exactly a copy, merely a divine inspiration.

Aurora Provides Emotional Oasis Tribute To John Lewis Christmas Advert [Video]


Aurora Oasis

It's officially Christmas season! Why's that, you say? Because a touching new John Lewis advert has arrived giving us all the feels with a balladic cover of Oasis hit 'Half the World Away' by Aurora Aksnes. We are literally crying our eyes out.

AuroraWe can't get enough of Aurora's rendition of 'Half The World Away'

Why do you do this to us, John Lewis? This year's Christmas advert features a little girl with a telescope who spies a lonely old man living on the moon staring wistfully at the Earth. Try as she might, she's unable to send a message of comfort to him - that is until Christmas day when a gift floats over to the man attached to some balloons. He discovers his own telescope in the package and easily finds the little girl through the lens. A tear drips down his cheek as she happily waves at him and our own eyes well up like never before.

Noel And Liam Gallagher To Appear In Forthcoming Oasis Documentary Film

More details about the upcoming Oasis documentary film being produced by the makers of Amy, as both Noel and Liam Gallagher have offered their co-operation to the project and will both feature in the movie. It’s unlikely that they’ll appear together, but we can live in hope.

The two brothers were the sole constant members of the often turbulent Britpop giants, whose commercial fortunes peaked in the mid ‘90s but whose popularity endured until their eventual disintegration in Paris in August 2009. They have not worked together since and are believed not to have had any contact at all, though they have occasionally fired pot-shots at each other through the press.

Blur's Alex James Hopes Oasis Get Back Together: "They Can Support Us"


Alex James Liam Gallagher Blur Oasis

Few Britpop figures were as memorable as Blur’s Alex James. With his trademark bass guitar pose of one foot on the front-of-stage speaker and cigarette nonchalantly dangling out of his mouth, he’s always admitted to loving every second of fame.

Now, in a new interview with The Independent, James has suggested that there could be room for both his reformed band and a reunited Oasis in today’s music scene, even going so far as to say that the two former rivals could play together in the future. But only if Oasis supported them!

Metallica To Cover 'Wonderwall' At Glastonbury, But What Are The Best Oasis Covers?


Metallica Jay Z Oasis Maroon 5 Jake Bugg Robbie Williams Keane Weezer

In a similar fashion to the announcement of Jay Z in 2008, metal titans Metallica’s headline slot at the iconic Glastonbury Festival has been met with a wave of criticism and derision from commentators who have deemed the Metallica’s headline position as both a lazy, predictable booking and one that is incompatible with Glastonbury’s demographic. However, whereas criticism towards Jay Z in the vein of what was unleashed by the Gallagher brothers was a scathing attack on hip hop as a genre, laced with a degree of barely concealed racism, Metallica’s backlash largely stems from elsewhere.

Firstly, this is a band that hasn’t produced an album of any merit for well over a decade and what’s more, considering they were announced long after tickets had sold out, how many of Glastonbury’s middle class bohemians will actually want to watch the band? Metallica have themselves responded to the criticism by announcing they may open their set with a cover of “Wonderwall”, copying Jay Z’s act of protest back in 2008. However, it does appear that Jay Z’s version carried a greater amount of symbolism, given that it was the Gallagher brothers who were the most vocal opponents of his appearance.
