      Noel still excited at being a Rock and Roll Star

    Noel Gallagher would have quit Oasis - if he hadn't been the main songwriter.

    The rocker has revealed he would have walked out on brother Liam at the same time original members Bonehead and Guigsy did in 1999 if he didn't have the responsibility of writing the majority of their hits.

    Speaking before his Teenage Cancer Trust show on Monday night (26.03.07), Noel told Virgin radio: "If I wasn't a songwriter I'd have gone the same way as Bonehead and just quit and retired. But I can be sat at home and it is my passion for writing that drives me into the studio. Then if you put a record out you are obliged to go out and make more millions."

    Noel insists he now has no intention of disbanding Oasis because he still loves being a rock star.

    He added: "I just want to carry on doing it and to be happy doing it. There's nothing really I haven't achieved. As long as I can still get excited being a rock and roll star then I'll carry on doing it.

      Noel on forthcoming Oasis Album and his Solo Gigs

    Following two triumphant sets at the Royal Albert Hall for this year's Teenage Cancer Trust concerts, Noel Gallagher spoke with Xfm about the events and the forthcoming Oasis album.

    The concerts on Monday and Tuesday opened a week of Teenage Cancer Trust gigs, and saw Noel - joined by Paul Weller – play covers of The Jam's 'The Butterfly Collector' and The Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love’ and ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, during which Noel seemed to forget the words.

    “No it wasn’t that, it was Gem”, he laughed, “Gem made an absolute howler on the guitar and I couldn’t contain the laughter. When we’re on tour with Oasis if he plays one wrong note he beats himself up about it for ages. But to do one last night when it’s kinda so prominent.

    “I just found that really amusing, cos I know that he would’ve gone home and locked himself in a darkened room, going ‘Oh fuck’. That’s why I started laughing. And on that song! We weren’t even going to do it, and it was kinda like, ‘Oh go on then, so we’ll go on and do it’. We should’ve quit while we were ahead, but I don’t think it spoiled the evening.”

    And going on to explain why he initially called the event organisers up himself and offered to play two nights in a row Noel told us,

    “They came asking a couple of years ago and we were on the road and we couldn’t’ do it cos we were in Thailand or somewhere like that. And I said, ‘The next time we’re available, we’ll do it’. But of course Zak [Starkey – Oasis drummer] went off and played with The Who, so Roger [Daltry] didn’t think we were available. So I said, ‘Well look, I’ll do it’, and they were like, ‘What really? Oh wow! Oh, alright then’. So that’s how that came about. I don’t want anybody to think I sit by the phone going, ‘Roger, let us play the Albert Hall…”

    Turning next to news from the Oasis camp Noel divulged that most of the new material for what will be their seventh studio album has already being written – though he has other things on his mind.

    "Oasis land is very quiet at the moment, there’s not a great deal going on. But a lot of the preparation for the next record has already been done. Because we wrote 60 odd songs for the last one, and out of that we used obviously eleven of for ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’. Then a lot of them, listening back to them, weren’t very good really, but there were eleven that we thought were really good.

    “And out of that eleven we thought seven were really good. Out of that seven, that’s now gone up to eight, so we now think eight’s really good.

    “So that’s virtually an album recorded, so there won’t be a great deal of work to do once we start, but as my lovely missus is making a baby that kinda puts most of this year out I would’ve thought.

      Bloc Party: "Oasis Made Stupidity Hip"

    Bloc Party frontman lashes out at Oasis


    Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke hit back after Noel Gallagher dismissed them as "a band off University Challenge".

    Okereke told Uncut magazine: "I think Oasis are the most over-rated and pernicious band of all time. They had a totally negative and dangerous impact upon the state of British music."

    "They have made stupidity hip. They claim to be inspired by the Beatles but, and this so saddens me, they have failed to grasp that the Beatles were about constant change and evolution. Oasis are repetitive Luddites."

    Okereke, the son of a molecular biologist, studied English literature at King`s College, London.

    Gallagher left school with no qualifications and claimed in 2005 to be reading a book for the first time in his life: Angels And Demons by Dan Brown.

    Asked about Gallagher`s "University Challenge" remark, Okereke said: "Well, it`s quite funny. It probably would have been a lot more funny had he not used exactly the same words to describe Travis a couple of years ago.

    "Having said that, it`s probably a very sad indication of the state of his mind.

    "Why is it bad to better yourself? It`s all about the weird way in which this country chooses to view the working classes.

    "It is really daft to reinforce the idea that there is something cool about being dumb.

    "The idea that your ambitions shouldn`t extend beyond getting pissed and watching the football really irks me.

    "It`s this idea that to be authentically working class you need to be untainted by the airy-fairy ephemera of education. And it seems to be pretty unique to this country."

    Okereke finds the situation so depressing that he plans to quit the country.

    "When Bloc Party is done I am definitely going to move," he said.

      Noel Gallagher seeks Glastonbury Solo Slot

    Oasis leader Noel Gallagher has asked NME to help get him another gig: a solo slot at Glastonbury.

    The star, currently playing a host of solo shows, is so anxious to play the bash he has headlined twice with his band (in 1995 and 2004) that he's put in a request to organiser Michael Eavis via us.

    "Playing the acoustic stuff at the festivals, that would be good," admitted Gallagher. "Actually, Glastonbury acoustic tent sounds nice! That would be good. Yeah, do us a favour stick that in and Mr Eavis will give me a call!"

    Although the guitarist joked that if his last minute request is successful, he could end-up playing against all the bands he wants to check out this year.

    "Saying that he'd probably put me on at the same time as Arctic Monkeys," mused Gallagher. "The best slot is second on the bill on the Other Stage. I've never had that slot at Glastonbury, but we've done it at foreign festivals and it's great."

      The View owe everything to Oasis

    The Scots pay their dues as they support Noel Gallagher

    The View have paid tribute to Oasis, admitting the band are one of their biggest inspirations.

    Asked what it felt like to share a stage with the Oasis guitarist, Peter Reilly said it was "special, really special, because we look up to Oasis so much, who are probably the reason we are in a band, so it's an absolute privilege".

    Frontman Kyle Falconer explained that his the band interrupted a month-long holiday just so they could support their idol.

    "(I told them) i'm not doing anything unless we're supporting Oasis," he declared.

    Reilly also revealed to Virgin Radio that they now plan to "get some decent time off the write the second album".

      British Pop Music is Best

    Noel Gallagher praises the UK's tunes


    Oasis mainman Noel Gallagher has praised UK music, proclaiming the pop music on these shores as the best around.

    The star was speaking around his two sold-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London for the Teenage Cancer Trust this week (March 26-27).

    "I don't think pop music will ever go away, the British Isles make the best pop music," Gallagher told Virgin Radio. "What's cool is that great pop music is being made with guitars, I guess Oasis opened the door for that. There's some really great pop music being played coming out of the pages of NME like Klaxons and Hot Chip, not necessarily guitar music. I think its pretty good actually."

    Gallagher added that he rated a host of bands around at the moment.

    "Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, I love the Kings of Leon possibly nearly every band in Liverpool," he said of his current playlist. "Klaxons make great singles, Babyshambles maybe."

    Gallagher also praised The View, who supported him at last night's gig (March 26), but admitted said he had trouble understanding what they were saying to him.

    "I like them but I can't understand a word they are saying," he joked. "I'll bring my missus down later so she can do some interpreting for us because she is Scottish. I love their singles."

    Gallagher plays his second Teenage Cancer Trust gig tonight (March 27) at London's Royal Albert Hall supported by The Coral.

      Noel Gallagher's biggest acoustic show ever

    Oasis leader joined by View and very special guest

    Noel Gallagher played his biggest ever solo gig in London tonight (March 26).

    Headlining the Royal Albert Hall for the first of this year's Teenage Cancer Trust shows, the Gibson Guitars sponsored night saw the Oasis leader mixing his own songs with a host of classic covers.

    Kicking off his set accompanied by bandmate Gem Archer and percussionist Terry Kirkbride, who has played at previous solo shows, Gallagher opened the evening with a series of his acclaimed b-sides including 'Talk Tonight' and '(It's Good) To Be Free'.

    He then introduced his star collaborator of night in typically comic style.

    "So as it's the Teenage Cancer Trust and as it's the Albert Hall, I'd like to introduce - somewhat predictably - Paul Weller," proclaimed the guitarist as the Modfather linked up for an ecstatically received version of The JAM's 'Butterfly Collector' and a cover of The Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love'.

    Gallagher was then joined by an all-female string section for the rest of the gig which include an outing for Oasis' third album.

    "Every time we go on tour, on that bandwagon, people say 'why don't you play songs of 'Be Here Now''," explained Gallagher. "So this evening we're going to play a song off 'Be Here Now'. I don't think this has ever been played before, for obvious reasons."

    The guitarist then performed 'Don't Go Away', before moving onto a rare live performance of 'Definitely Maybe' vinyl bonus track 'Sad Song'.

    With the evening's special feel, many fans began calling for Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher before a stripped down version of 'Wonderwall', forcing his brother to explain his absence.

    "I did ask Liam if he'd come down tonight," joked Gallagher, "but he used the worlds 'fuck' and 'charity' in the same sentence."

    The Oasis boss then stunned the crowd with another cover as he introduced as his "favourite song ever".

    Performing a beautiful version of The Smiths' 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out', Gallagher - dressed in a brown blazer and back shirt - recalled the first time he had ever played the song acoustically, in Russia at the weekend (March 25).

    "I did this in Moscow the other night, but I don't think The Smiths have sold any fucking records in Russia," he observed. "I got to the chorus and thought 'they're going to have it in a minute' - no."

    Finishing up the night with a host of Oasis hits including 'Don't Look Back In Anger', with he dedicated to "the kids" benefiting from the Teenage Cancer Trust's work, Gallagher rounded off the evening covering The Beatles again, this time with 'Strawberry Fields'.

    Noel Gallagher played:

    '(It's Good) To Be Free'
    'Talk Tonight'
    'Fade Away'
    'Cast No Shadow'
    'Half The World Away'
    'The Importance Of Being Idle'
    'Butterfly Collector'
    'All You Need Is Love'
    'Don't Go Away'
    'Listen Up'
    'Sad Song'
    'Wonderwall'
    'Slide Away'
    'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out'
    'Don't Look Back in Anger'
    'Married With Children'
    'Strawberry Fields Forever'

    Earlier, the evening had been opened by Liverpool band Shack before The View played their longest ever acoustic gig.

    Including versions of singles 'Same Jeans', 'Superstar Tradesman' and 'Wasted Little DJs', the Dundee band also surprised the audience covering The Squeeze's 'Up The Junction'.

    Highlights and interviews from tonight's gig are due to be broadcast on Virgin Radio between 4-8pm tomorrow (March 27).

    For more information go to Virginradio.co.uk, meanwhile Noel Gallagher plays his second Teenage Cancer Trust gig tomorrow (March 27) this time supported by The Coral.

    Kasabian and Kaiser Chiefs are also due to headline shows at the London venue for the charity later in the week.

      Noel and Gem take Red Square

    WHEN NOEL GALLAGHER’s manager suggested he did a Red Square gig, I wouldn’t mind betting the boozing Manc thought he was in line for some free alcopops.


    Luckily the OASIS star realised he was being offered the chance to do his first gig on Soviet soil. On Friday night the Rock’n’Roll Tsar arrived in Moscow to play a sellout gig with bandmate GEM ARCHER.


    The pair served up a storming acoustic set at Club B1 — before celebrating with a marathon drinking session that must have left Russian vodka reserves severely depleted. One fan told me: “Noel was on top form all night.

    He looked like he was really enjoying being in Russia. The party afterwards was a typical Russian affair — lots and lots of vodka. There was some serious drinking going on.

    “Noel deserved to get hammered, though. The gig was absolutely brilliant. The Russian audience knew every word to every song"

    I have to take my hat off to him — getting battered in the week where he needs to be on top form. Tonight and tomorrow Noel headlines the Teenage Cancer Trust gigs at London’s Royal Albert Hall. And on Friday he’s at the Manchester v Cancer gig at the MEN Arena.

    In Moscow former Manchester City star GEORGI KINKLADZE was in the crowd to see his old pal perform. Noel called him “a true Blue legend” before inviting the silky midfield star backstage to join the party.

    Noel’s campaign to hold on to his Bizarre Caner Of The Year crown is gathering unstoppable momentum. As my exclusive picture of him and Gem shows, they even managed to end up drinking Newcastle Brown ale — in Russia. That’s title-winning form. - The Sun

      Oasis paid off Alan White £348,000

    Newly released accounts show Oasis paid off Alan White £348,000 to sack him as their drummer.

    That means the group have paid out almost one million pounds to change drummers over the years, after original stickman Tony McCarroll was given £550,000 after threatening to sue for £18 million.

    When White left the band in 2004 Liam Gallagher claimed it was over something as simple as his girlfriend.

    He said, “Turns out he’s hanging out with his bird in Spain. Once the word bird and Spain are mentioned together it’s like, OK, Oasis vs girlfriend.”

    The pay-off helped the band’s touring company ’Definitely Maybe’ made a loss of almost £1 million in 2005, according to accounts seen by The Sun.

      Bootleg Crook's £564,000 Seized

    Crook who ripped off Robbie Williams, Oasis and the Rolling Stones has dirty money fortune seized

    A Scots music man who faces losing the £1million fortune he made from bootleg CDs of concerts by Robbie Williams, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones.

    Peter Cruickshank, 46, has run stalls at record fairs across Britain and Ireland for 10 years.

    He protests his trade is only a hobby and appears to live modestly in his mother's house. But he owns an MG sports car and other vehicles and is building a villa in Marbella.

    He was caught in December 2003 with £30,000 of bootleg CDs in a van at Stranraer's ferry terminal.

    His haul included live recordings of Led Zeppelin, Abba, Aerosmith, Beach Boys, David Gray, Elvis, Eagles, Iron Maiden, Manic Street Preachers, Pink Floyd, Robbie Williams, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Bon Jovi, Eminem, Oasis, Paul Weller and Queen.

    Now Cruickshank has had the proceeds from his trade - worth £564,000 - frozen by the Crown Office.

    The music industry loses £165million a year from piracy and bootlegging.

    A British Phonographic Institute spokesman said: "These lost sales amount to the combined legal sales of the top 13 best-selling albums in the UK last year."


    Bootleg CDs of Oasis' performance at the Brits in January appeared on eBay within an hour.


    Last night Cruickshank, who lives in his mum's house in Bearsden, Glasgow, claimed he had quit.

    He said: "They have frozen everything, including the van and car.

    "Most of my money is from legitimate sources such as selling back catalogues and deletions.

    "Only about 20 per cent of it was from bootlegging. But I did not keep accounts for six years or pay tax and the authorities would rather chaseme than real criminals.

    "I am only breaking copyright regulations but record companies are spending millions of pounds to try to catch people like me."

    The former bus company worker claims he made most of his money when he invested his redundancy payout in 1990 by buying the entire stock of a London record company.

    He said: "I bought bootleg CDs in bulk from Italy. I don't make them myself. We've tried to reach a settlement on what I owe but the Crown want everything." The Crown Office confirmed they are seeking a confiscation order.

    In 1998 police raided Cruickshank's home and took 50,000 pirate CDs and cassettes, worth £500,000. But he was not prosecuted.

    In 2000 Cruickshank was caught selling 2000 CDs on a stall at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre and fined £600.

    Last week he was given a year's deferred sentence for selling illegal recordings after pleading guilty at Stranraer Sheriff Court.

    It follows years of investigation by police, trading standards officers and the British Phonographic Institute. A BPI investigator said: "These guys are making more money than major drug dealers."

    Top 5 bootlegs:

    1. THE BEATLES: Anthology Plus - recordings of studio sessions for the BBC in the mid-1960s.

    2. LED ZEPPELIN: Rare Zep concerts can cost hundreds but most sought after are BBC sessions.

    3. BOB DYLAN: The most prized bootleg is a 1966 recording, Live At The Royal Albert Hall.

    4. THE ROLLING STONES: A 1969 tape, Stoned In The Park, of a Hyde Park concert in London, when Mick Jagger paid tribute to drowning victim Brian Jones fetches big money.

    5. PRINCE: A studio recording, The Black Album, planned as a follow up to Sign Of The Times was huge on the blackmarket before being officially released in 1994.


    The confiscation order means Peter Cruickshank could lose all his assets under the Proceeds of Crime Act:

    Two white Transit vans £50,000

    One MG sports car £20,000

    Holiday home in Marbella £220,000

    Shares, bank accounts, investments and personal possessions £276,000

    Total £566,000

    He also faces a £500,000 bill from the Customs and Inland Revenue to cover years of unpaid tax.

      Wonderbrawl

    Noel Gallagher's ex-wife Meg Matthews is planning to release an album called Wonderbrawl.

    The interior designer - who was the inspiration for Oasis hit Wonderwall - has been attending music therapy sessions with her friends in London's Primrose Hill.

    A source told the Daily Star: "Meg and some of the other Primrose Hill crew have been really enjoying these music therapy sessions. They're primarily designed to help people express emotions but they've also produced some pretty good tunes.

    "One of Meg's favourites was a ballad about a row she had with Noel when they were breaking up. A friend said she could call it Wonderbrawl! Now she's talking about putting a whole album together under that title. She's good friends with Noel now and it's all down to this self-growth."

      Liam to Sing on Freebase Debut Album

    Liam Gallagher is to feature on the new album by a British supergroup made-up of three legendary bass players.

    The Oasis star will sing vocals on one track on the Freebase album, alongside Bobby Gillespie, Tim Burgess and Ian Brown.

    Freebase includes Peter Hook from New Order, Andy Rourke of The Smiths and Primal Scream's Mani, formerly from The Stone Roses.

    The group's debut album is currently being recorded, with Hook explaining that Freebase also hope to tour in the near future.

    "We've been working with some great singers. Tim Burgess has done a vocal for us. Liam Gallagher, I believe, is doing one, (as is) Ian Brown and Bobby Gillespie.

    "We're going to get them up on stage as well. It's nice that Mani and I can call in a few favours", he told Billboard.

      Rare Oasis Video up for Auction

    A RARE recording from Oasis’s early days is being put up for auction.

    The unique video captures a demo gig given by the Burnage rockers to Sony music executives back in February 1994 at Gleneagles in Scotland - before the release of their first single.

    Oasis were signed up to indie label Creation Records at the time – founded by Alan McGee in 1983 – which merged with music giants Sony in 1992.

    The video shows the original members of the band – Tony McCarroll, Paul Arthurs, Liam Gallagher, Paul McGuigan and Noel Gallagher – performing a number of songs which went on to be massive hits, including Supersonic and Cigarettes and Alcohol, in their early form.

    Joel Taylor, owner of Auction Point UK on Burnage Lane, said: "I couldn’t believe it when the video arrived. It really is a rare find as it shows the band singing well-known tracks, but with different lyrics in some parts. They obviously went on to change the lyrics when the final songs were produced.

    "The staging on the demo is quite good and everything looks really professional. It feels like they’re playing to millions, but when the camera pans around you can see that there are only about eight people watching and they’re all music execs. We are looking to get the tape up on our auction website by the weekend so that people can start bidding on it. We do tend to get quite a lot of band memorabilia coming into our shop, but we have never sold anything like this on the internet before. We think that it will go for quite a lot of money.

    "I’m an Oasis fan myself, so it’s brilliant to get my hands on such an early piece of the band’s legacy, but I’m not going to be bidding for it!" The video, which was filmed by Sony Executives, arrived at the shop after David Bosman, a friend of the Oasis boys who lives in Denton, dropped it off to be auctioned.

    One music insider said: "It is a very rare piece of footage. It could be worth a fortune."

    It will appear on the auction site on Friday and bids will be accepted for ten days.

      Damon Albarn slams Oasis for appearing at Brits

    The former Blur singer - who has been feuding with brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher since the Blur versus Oasis Britpop chart battle of the mid-90s - says it was "unnecessary" for Oasis to accept the Outstanding Contribution To Music award and perform at last month's ceremony.

    Damon told Britain's NME magazine: "The BRITs is like the shopping channel for famous people. I don't really understand why Noel and Liam did the awards, it didn't seem necessary. Their contribution is obvious.

    "They're certainly better than Sting, so why put yourself in a position when you're putting yourself into a linage following him? I don't understand it."

    Noel - who said he hoped Damon would "catch AIDS and die" at the height of their feud - recently said he liked Damon's new band The Good, The Bad and The Queen.

    However, Damon insists he will never be friends with the Oasis guitarist.

    He said: "I can't make it up with Noel. Britpop would be over and heaven forbid that we'd ever admit we'd all grown up! Britpop still reigns supreme over Britain as a musical force and will do until Blur and Oasis split."

      Noel's Great News

    Noel Gallagher and his girlfriend Sara MacDonald are expecting their first child together.

    The Oasis guitarist has been dating MacDonald for seven years and is said to be delighted with the news.

    A close friend of the couple told The Sun: "Noel and Sara are really, really happy and excited. This is something they both wanted but they kept the news to themselves until they were sure everything was OK with the baby.

    "Neither of them have ever wanted to get married but it felt like the right time to start a family together. The last seven years have been a lot of fun and they have a huge house in the country which is perfect for the kids to be running around. They are both thrilled."

    Gallagher already has a seven-year-old daughter, Anais, from his marriage to ex-wife Meg Matthews.

      Noel Lends Ex Arctic Monkey Bassist a Hand

    Noel Gallagher is advising ex-Arctic Monkey bassist Andy Nicholson on his burgeoning music career, according to a report.

    Nicholson left his all-conquering bandmates last year but has apparently been given a lifeline by the Oasis guitarist.

    Gallagher has been offering advice and support to Nicholson in his attempts to become a DJ and remixer and invited him to Oasis's after-Brit Awards party.

    "Noel really liked Andy when he was in the band," a source told The Sun. "He gave Andy his mobile number and said if he needed anything to give him a call. They get on like a house on fire. Noel would do anything to help him out."

      Noel knows how bad Robbie Williams is.....

    Noel Gallagher has stuck the knife into Robbie Williams again, claiming he could speak for “three hours about how bad he is”.

    Williams, who is currently in rehab, won the Worst Album prize at the NME Awards yesterday, and the Oasis star said he regretted the fact Robbie couldn’t collect it in person.
    He told the Daily Mirror, “I just wish he was here so I could say well done. I don't think even Robbie himself thinks he's a credible artist.

    “I could talk to you for three hours about how bad he is. Worst Album isn't really an award, is it?"
