Noel Gallagher joins Damon Albarn & friends to perform at Paul Simonon's Birthday
Damon Albarn and Noel Gallagher led a supergroup formed to celebrate Paul Simonon‘s 60th birthday in London last night (December 13th).
The pair were joined by Jeff Wootton, Chrissie Hynde, Zak Starkey and others for covers of Gorillaz and Clash tracks – one of which, ‘DARE‘, can be seen below.
Albarn and Gallagher’s publicly played out nineties rivalry reportedly cooled following a chance meeting in London in 2012. This show marked the second time since then that they’ve performed together on stage after Gallagher covered ‘Tender‘ with Albarn and his Blur bandmate Graham Coxon during the Teenage Cancer Trust concerts of 2013.
And last year Albarn discussed the possibility of them writing music together at some point, telling NME:
“I can imagine that being a very distinct possibility at some point in the future,” he said of a collaboration. “But, as yet we haven’t really talked about it. OK, we have a little bit. We’re talking. It’s not anything to get excited about yet. I mean, he’s doing his thing.”
“He’s finishing a new record. I’ve got my record coming out, but the principle of us making music together is something, you know, it would be fair to say, we have discussed it at least once.”
