      Liam gets nice mention in Rolling Stone Poll

    Rolling Stone's Music Critics chose their top 10 Album lists of the year. Although Oasis had no Album out Liam Gallagher gets top mention for his contributions to the Death in Vegas production.....

    LILY MOAYERI

    1. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Take Them On, On Your Own (Virgin): Dirty rasp and buzzing feedback punctured by a newly discovered tender side, all the while denying the blatant Jesus and Mary Chain influence.

    2. Death in Vegas, Scorpio Rising (Sanctuary): Gritty, earthy, modern, dark, plus Liam Gallagher's hook-y vocal contribution beats anything he's done with Oasis in the last few years.

    .....

      100 most insane moments in Rock

    They are renowned for depravity, calamity and insanity - not to mention the almost prerequisite overdose of sex and drugs. Over the years rock has become synonymous with the extreme excesses of its most famous hell-raisers.

    Whether it is Ozzy Osbourne's bat-biting, Liam Gallagher's fondness for mauling photographers or even the drug-fuelled demise of performers like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, crazed behaviour seems to come with the territory for musical superstars.

    Now Q magazine has enlisted its experts to compile a list of the 100 most insane moments in rock, with Sir Paul McCartney's arrest in Japan on drugs charges, the breathtaking financial excesses of MC Hammer and the Happy Mondays' temporary editorship of an "adult" magazine all earning honourable mentions. "It's pretty much the definitive word on the subject," said Q editor Paul Rees of his list - before conceding that his readers are bound to have some nominations of their own. That musical stars often appear to be a cymbal short of the full drum kit is, perhaps, no surprise: the combination of huge financial reward, complete power over a doting entourage and the adoration of thousands is surely a recipe for bad, and mad, behaviour.

      Getting arrested was worth it....

    NOEL'S A CELL OUT

    NOEL and Liam Gallagher may bicker but we were surprised to hear Noel has praised the German police for banging up his sibling after a fight in Munich.

    Talking about the band's sixth album, Noel told NME the overnight stay inspired his little bro. "It pains me to say it but Liam's songs are amazing. He's got the blues, man. One of them he wrote when he spent the night in a cell, so getting arrested was worth it."

      Liam stunns local fundraiser with surprise performance !

    Hindley singer Natasha Lea Jones did a double take when she walked on stage to find Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and hell-raising buddy Mani Mounfield, former bassist with the seminal Madchester superstars Stone Roses, had arrived to cast a critical eye and ear over her set.
    The show, at Manchester's Trendy Blue Cat Cafe, was a benefit for homeless people's charity 'Shelter.'
    Former Mornington High School pupil Natasha of Conway Road – renowned for her powerful yet delicate melodies, vocal and song writing style – was supporting Tom Hingley of 'The Lovers' .

    The 27-year-old said :"I had just finished sound checking. "Then out of the blue, Liam walked in with Mani, and a few other friends. "Liam walked over to the stage picked up my guitar and began strumming it!
    "He thrashed out a new tune that he's working on, a real driving number and then went over to sit down and chill out with a beer.
    "During my set he was very supportive, cheering me along with Mani.
    "I gave him my album and he gave the CD a big smacker of a kiss although I was too shy and stunned to chat with him.
    "He's so refreshing during this period of 'Pop Idol' and 'Karaoke' and these days doing original music can be such a challenge.
    "So, to do a gig and have Liam and Mani there in front of me like that really means a lot to me and the atmosphere was electric!"

      Noel: 'I'm too old to rock'

    Paul Taylor

    COVER STORY: Noel in City Life
    OASIS fans had better prepare themselves for a shock. For Burnage's most famous son has hinted that he may not be touring for much longer.

    At 36, the group's guitarist and chief songwriter, Noel Gallagher, admits he now compares notes with fellow dad-rocker, Paul Weller, on how old is too old to be a rock star.

    "If he packs it in, I won't be far behind," he told this week's City Life magazine.

    Gallagher was speaking exclusively at a Worsley hotel, where the group were filming for a 10-year retrospective DVD about their debut album, Definitely Maybe.

    He says: "You start to dress very differently in your thirties. Sometimes, I have to have a long hard look in the mirror and ask myself: `Do I look a ****?'"

    And the prospects for Oasis touring into their dotage like The Rolling Stones? "The longer you do it, the more you do fear it, yeah," he says. "At some point, you've got to accept that music has moved on and you're not the cat's whiskers any more.

    "What brings it home to you is when people stop you in the street for autographs, and they're quite old these days."

    But, 10 years on from the dawn of Britpop, it seems Gallagher still cannot resist raking over the embers of that infamous Blur-Oasis feud.

    And, just for good measure, he has taken a pop at another rock luminary, Suede frontman Brett Anderson.

    "I think Blur and Suede suffered from the same thing - their singers became egomaniacs. Brett Anderson wanted Bernard Butler out and Damon Albarn is now running away with his band." And he's not finished there. Of the music of retro-rock darlings The Darkness, he says: "I just find it really, really inoffensive. It doesn't do anything for me."

    Gallagher Snr huffs oddly: "Cat Deeley bands - that's what The Flaming Lips and The Darkness are. But nothing against Cat Deeley, I'm sure she's a very nice girl."

    As for The Strokes, Noel loves them, but the second album is "dog****", while The Vines and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are "top live, but the music is ****." Only Coldplay get an unqualified Gallagher thumbs-up.

    Meanwhile, Oasis go into the studio next month to record what he promises will be "a proper psychedelic rock 'n' roll record".

    It is also likely to be a collective effort, with brother Liam apparently writing "too many songs" for Noel's liking after learning how to play the guitar.

      Noel's exclusive interview

    2003 was the year Britpop held its unofficial tenth anniversary celebrations. There was, all said and done, little to celebrate about the occasion – after all, posterity was always going to pay short thrift to a movement founded on little more than its own (New Labour endorsed)
    spin doctoring and white powder-fuelled self-belief. But look beyond the acres of books, rockumentaries and broadsheet exhumations, and what’s thrown most sharply into focus is the gulf of ambition between the main players. On one hand, Britpop’s art school branch has been exposed as being as groundless as many had feared (Suede and Blur RIP). On the other, Britpop’s proudest apostates, Oasis, for all the schadenfreude surrounding their existence, are still standing (on the shoulders of giants, albeit) tall and proud. And who was at the centre of this hurricane? Mr Noel Gallagher. “We’re a rock ’n’ roll band… everyone’s dead into analysing but don’t analyse our band,” said Noel in 1994. Throughout Oasis’s reign at the top, this was to be become Noel’s constant refrain and one which he and his band stuck to unwaveringly. This is, after all, the man who, more than any contemporary songwriter since The Beatles, did at least show we can be much more than a nation of atomised individuals. A man whose songs paid little heed to flag-waving or generational spokesmanship yet did that most thrilling of things that only rock ’n’ roll can: summon up a feeling of shared and ecstatic commonality. It’s for this reason and this reason solely why Noel Gallagher, more than any other Manchester musician we’ve ever written about, stands as City Life’s most influential musical figure of the last 20 years.

      Gem clears up album rumours

    After his performance with Paul Weller in Frankfurt Oasis guitarist Gem Archer commented on the progress of the new Oasis-album: "Yes, we're definitely going into the studio in London on Jan 21st", he explained when being asked about an exact date. In co-orporation with Death in Vegas the band would like to finish the record off in the early summer of 2004. "We like th guys (DIV) and their stuff is good". Archer said he had already 2 tracks written - but they still are demo versions. "None of the songs are finished", and that counts in Noel's as well as Liam's material. Thus rumours about completed songs can be regarded as untrue. "I'm looking forward to being in studio again. Liam and Noel are funny colleagues", Archer confirms.

      Roll over Beethoven ......

    Former Hear'Say singer Myleene Klass - now forging a career in classical music - has called for classical music to be made more accessible to the general public. Klass, whose recent debut album Moving On featured music by Elgar, Beethoven, and Michael Nyman, said that classical music remained too "elitist."

    ......Klass pointed out that Mozart wrote pieces for the popular audience, and that it was important to stress he was not elitist - although he is now seen that way. "When he wrote he never wrote with that [elitist] mindset. He was a bit of a party animal. He was a real person, he wasn't a saint," she said. "He was the Justin Timberlake of his time, and that's the closet thing that people can relate to.

    "As soon as you say that, Beethoven would probably have been the Liam Gallagher of his time."

    "It's just about putting it into a box that people can understand it in, without necessarily putting it into a classical box."

      New Music Polls....

    Readers of UK's popular Tabloid THE SUN recently chose their top 100 Songs ever. Here is an outtake of the list:

    1 Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen
    2 Angels – Robbie Williams
    3 Everybody Hurts – REM
    4 Imagine – John Lennon
    5 With Or Without You – U2
    6 Live Forever – Oasis

    further :45 Wonderwall Oasis

    full list : Top 100

    Meanwhile Q magazine named Elephant by Detroit's Duo THE WHITE STRIPES album of the year.
    Q said Elephant was an album of raw garage punk that had defied all logic by going double platinum.

    Jack and Meg White recorded the album on ancient equipment in an East London studio called Toerag.

    Q concluded: "Elephant's greatest legacy will be convincing a new generation of wannabe rock stars that small and strange can still be massive."
