About Noel Gallagher
Noel Gallagher joined his brother’s band Oasis, then called Rain, in the early ‘90s. It was his knack for catchy pop melodies, in the vein of classic pop and rock songwriting such as Marc Bolan, The Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols and The Beatles, that hit a nerve with music fans and the media. The latter of which were looking for the next big thing while Grunge was slowly on its way out.
The five lads from Manchester took the scene by storm with their debut album, Definitely Maybe. The collection received praise from all corners and quickly established Oasis as a major force. They went on to find global fame and stardom with the release of the second album, 1995’s What’s The Story (Morning Glory)?.
Oasis was soon locked into a chart battle with fellow Britpop band Blur. The new legendary battle saw Oasis’s Roll With It take on the band. Oasis famously lost the battle but went on to win the Britpop war.
What’s the story (Morning Glory)? became one of the bestselling UK albums of all time and its single Wonderwall was adopted as the anthem of a generation. It established Noel Gallagher as the songwriting genius that he’s recognised as today.
Oasis went on to release more albums but never reached the commercial success and critical acclaim of their earlier work, but as a live band Oasis were a force to be reckoned with. Tickets were quick to sell out for any Oasis gig and the band played sold-out shows across the globe.
The band’s rollercoaster lifestyle on and off stage, especially the at times violent relationship between Noel and his younger brother Liam, have made headlines throughout the band’s career and eventually led to Oasis’s breakup.
Noel Gallagher was involved in several side-projects throughout the years with Oasis, but he typically shied away from a full solo project. However, with Oasis now part of Rock ‘n’ Roll history Noel Gallagher went on to release is first solo project with the moniker of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
