Who Would Turn Down $30 Million? Noel Gallagher, That’s Who
What kind of Cain-and-Abel hate is there between Noel and Liam Gallagher? I know Noel doesn’t need any more money, but to turn down $30 million to reunite Oasis? That’s the story, morning glory.
Bags of money are apparently on the table for a tour to commemorate the 2oth anniversary of Definitely Maybe next year. Definitely not, it seems.
As much as I’d like to see the original lineup before together again, I keep reminding myself that Oasis was generally rubbish live. Everyone remained glued to their spot on the stage while Liam sang into a mic on a stand with his hands clasped behind his back. For excitement, he’d prowl a few feet to the left or right and occasionally deign to pick up a tambourine or something.
And I do admire Noel for sticking to his position that the band is finished. As a fans of the Smiths and a friend of Johnny Marr (not to mention the Beatles and the Clash), he’s seen how staying broken up can only add to Oasis’ position–and his–in the pantheon of British rock’n’roll. Want to become immortal? Never fall for the reunion trick.
