I don't recal a time when he wasn't taking the piss to be honest he is a grade A attetion seeking loud mouth bloke.
I'd respect him if he was 'trolling' just to piss people off for his own amusement. However, I have this worryng feeling that he is not....
Arguably there is no British band since who've managed to successfully pull off the mass appeal crowd sing-along rock band and thing since Oasis and I think that's a bit of a shame. (You could argue Coldplay or Travis but I'm not sure either are "rock" bands per se whereas, despite all the sales, I'm not sure the Arctic Monkeys have that wide a fanbase)
I mean Oasis aren't my favourite band in the world by any means but I do think, when on form, they're doing something that has no other current British equivalent and maybe it would be good if there was.
That's not because Oasis is good, but because the advent of the internet has made saturation of the market by one band or genre totally impossible.
For the record: Oasis were shit then, are shit now, and will always be a festering amorphous lump of fecal discharge on the ashheap of popular music history.
Alan McGee has posted 56 blogs on myspace. I really haven't the time to check any of them.
Myspace really is fo' twunts.
who heralds dirty pretty things as musical saviours has an invalid opinion

"It's as if they have re-imagined their discography and made their true follow-up to What's the Story Morning Glory, completing the elusive and perfect rock'n'roll trilogy that began with Definitely Maybe"
10 years too late me thinks, too much exiting music around to be getting excited about this......although Noel's interviews are always quite entertaining!
Anyone else think that he's wishing for a return to form as fervently as Oasis themselves?
And really, is Glasvegas the sound of the United Kingdom currently? I'm tempted to agree with him - they're the pitiful noise of a band that cobble together different musical genres to make some hideous pastiche that the great British public go crazy for.
He's got a good point about Revolver though. After all, it is pretty much the worst record that the Beatles recorded.
i cant say i agreed with what either said on the whole but i did agree with this ......"They claim to be inspired by the Beatles but, and this so saddens me, they have failed to grasp that the Beatles were about constant change and evolution"
