The Chief to Take Macca's Crown?

The man who signed Oasis rates Noel Gallagher almost as highly as he rates himself.
Alan McGee, founder of Creation Records, has had a listen to Mr Big's new solo material and thinks it will rank him alongside the likes of Lennon and McCartney.
No pressure, then.
Alan said: "I've heard the Noel demos. They're f***ing genius. For me, the guy's a McCartney, a Lennon, a Neil Young - he's one of the greats.
"When McCartney goes, it's Noel's crown really, isn't it?"
McGee even feels there are tracks worthy of mention alongside Oasis's biggest hits.
He said: "There's three songs on the demos - I won't go naming them cos I'm not his manager - but they're up there with Don't Look Back In Anger and Live Forever.
"He's f***ing done it again."
Meanwhile, Noel's nipper Sonny wasn't the only Oasis-related baby born last Friday.
James Cropley, who plays Noel in tribute band Noasis, had a boy too - Samuel Benjamin - on the same day. "It's a weird coincidence," he said.
I doubt Cropley's new material will place him alongside Lennon and McCartney though, just Cannon And Ball.
