Artists and Bands

I think that Liam and Noel should each have a slice of Magic Pie

Could this really be the end of Oasis, the band of a thousand firings? According to Ananova and Heat magazine it certainly appears that way. I love Oasis, always have and I love them for two main reasons. The first is that I think they are a great, unapologetic rock and roll band that pumps out songs that are just perfect for screaming out at the top of your lungs in concert. Some complain that they steal from the greats like The Beatles, et al but rock and roll has been stealing from itself for fifty years and there is nothing uncommon in that. As a matter of fact, I would much prefer that they cop a couple of licks from The Beatles or The Kinks than Limp Bizkit or The Smashing Pumpkins. Enough said. The other reason I love Oasis is that they put a bit of fun back into rock and roll. The scandals, the taunts, the drugs and booze, the potty mouths. It all adds up for some quite entertaining reading! Even if Oasis were to break up, and I hope that they don’t, the Gallaghers, like the Davies and the Everlys and the Robinsons are stuck with each other. Oasis are our real life Spinal Tap. Like Nigel and David they are stuck with each other till death do them part. Patch it up again boys and get back to the studio. If you want to fight, do it onstage, preferably during the encore.
