    Proper response to anything a Gallagher says: A polite chuckle before moving on.

    Good thing 'ol Noel Gallagher is looking after us music lovers. You know since he's giving us an outlet from the unoriginal Radiohead with his incredibly original tunes.

    Yeah, this is really controversial stuff. :rolleyes: Maybe next we'll find out that commercial radio sucks.

    The sentiment behind the second quote set off a flurry of discussion in the "rock is dead" threrad here, if you'll recall.

    isn't this what rock stars are suppose to do?

    say things to piss people off... no matter who it is?

    where the ************ is it written that rock stars want to make people happy... they just want to play their music, ************ their chicks and do their drugs

    everything else is after the fact and really getting in the way... we got too many bands going around trying to be all things to everyone... ************ off and be you

    there is no such thing as a bubble gum pop individual... well, there are, but these people live in a psych ward

    rock will be "back" when the next set of bands show up and don't care...

    most of that thread was pure crap, i think i did my post... then one or two more after comments occured, and said ************ it

    why the hell should i care about a bunch of people that are going to belittle the next arrival anyways... think about it... most of us are going to miss the ride... i probably will too

    rock ain't dead, people move on and forget what was that is... they expect things to move with them

    it ain't about them, it never was, it never will be... if it is, we got britney and her minions

    in a local mag here, Noel said that the American music scene was better than the British music scene and that the American music press had more integrity than the British music press.

    I'd love to read the full interview instead of just afew lines from it .
    Noel just tries to wind people up for a laugh.
    In one of his recent interviews he had a dig at robbie williams .He said something along the lines of .." im not a violent man but I'd like to push robbie down the stairs afew times .I'd also like to see him held down and slapped by men in white coats "..lol

    I'm normally the first person to critisize the Gallaghers for being press hungry shock-value idiots, but I find very little wrong with what he says here. The US records executives are total scumbags who have no sense of taste or good art. There number one priority is money and "what is going to get us rich quicker"?? I worked with label executives for nearly six years and they are complete idiots who have no business being in the line of work they are in.

    I'm more surprised if someone is surprised at this. Those guys are and always have been classic "MFJ"'s if you ask me... Misfits, Fvck-ups and jerk-offs.

    But he's not the LEAD singer. When someone just uses the term "singer" it's generally understood to be a reference to the lead singer.

    Oasis did very well in the US in the mid 90's when alternative rock music was very popular. The type of music they do isn't going to get much airplay now with nu metal bands getting most of the rock music attention. I remember tuning into local rock radio stations in the mid 90's and Oasis got a lot of air play those same stations now are playing bands who are a lot heavier than Oasis is now maybe if they starting rapping they'd get some airplay.

    Hmmmmmmm, not sure about that one. I mean, Limp Bizkit ?, New found glory ?, Blink 18poo ?. Personally speaking both scenes are a bit rubbish at the moment. Oasis have lost that sparkle, loads of US or US-influenced pop-punk crap like Blink 182 and Offspring and whiny moany metal for 14 year olds like Papa Smurf and Korn.

    The whole retro thing with The strokes (1 song, different words) and the White Stripes (fast Bob Dylan) is a bit boring as well.

    And bands that have split up like RATM, Divine Comedy etc. are being missed, as they sound different to the above tripe.

    I think we need another Oasis, Metallica, Queen or whoever, who as a bit of spunk about them and are that bit different to the rest doing the rounds.

    Thank God for Oasis. Ego, attitude and talent make rockstars, not corporations, make up artist and stylist.
