Noel Gallagher Leaving Oasis

August 29, 2009

Please observe a moment of silence for that fine band of City fans from Manchester; Oasis. It looks like they’ll be splitting up now that guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher will be leaving the band since he can no longer work with his brother, Liam.

Noel wrote on the band’s website: “It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you I quit Oasis tonight. I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.”

According to various reports, Noel walked just before the band was due to headline at Paris’s Rock en Seine festival after he and Liam got into a fistfight.

Singer Amy Macdonald reported on her Twitter page that the brothers had exchanged blows backstage, writing: “Liam smashed Noel’s guitar, huuuge fight!”

Is this just a temporary bust-up or will it be for good? My spidey sense tells me if they ever get back together, it won’t be for a long time.

So until then, here are their top three songs as ranked by their own countrymen in a recent poll:

Live Forever


Don’t Look Back In Anger

And of course one of my favorites:
