Truly, just sad.
Although Oasis is just as famous for its music as it is for its feuding brothers, Noel and Liam Gallagher, the two officially called it quits in August of 2009 after a massive fight in their dressing room at the V Festival in Paris, and now, the former has opened up about what caused the band's demise, and surprisingly, it wasn't about the music!
"I've never had enough of Oasis. Our own relationship was never as bad as people made out, but it wasn't, we weren't like Milli Vanilli… what that means, I don't know. It kind of all started to unravel, if I'm being honest, when he started his clothing label, and demanded that in the Oasis tour program, that he be allowed to advertise it, which I was against. I didn't think that it was right for him to be flogging his gear to our fans, and there was a massive row about that. And it kind of went back and forth for a bit, as I remember it, and I said alright, and if you want to advertise in the program, how much? And he couldn't get his head around that…It slowly went downhill from there. The night in Paris, he didn't turn up to the V Festival gig, because he had a hangover. He claimed he had laryngitis, but whatever. There was a lot of bad press around that, and in his head, he thinks I'm some sort of fucking puppet master who controls the media in England. So we get to Paris and he starts saying, he's reeling off journalists names, and some of you are in this room, and it's all manner of people I have never met, you fucking tell Johnny Bowles Mustache I want to kick his fucking head in, and I'm like I dont know what you're going on about. And Elvis Costello, and he's just fucking off his head. And it kind of went, it was a bit like that."
We're sure that it wasn't JUST this, and that there was probably a lot of built-up resentment and other factors that caused the blow-up, but still - it seems like such a shame, considering how talented the pair were when they were focusing on the music, and not the other's ego!
As much as we'd like to hope that someday they'll be able to put their differences aside and reunite, we really doubt that's going to ever happen!
Here's hoping that you two can eventually let go of all of the anger and at least be BROTHERS again!
