During his thirty-something years in the public eye, Noel Gallagher has evolved from a gobby, mono-browed Mancunian to a wry, dry elder statesman of rock. However, while he might be best known for his Oasis days, there’s much more to him than meets the eye.
Noel Gallagher shook up the UK charts with the swaggering rock ‘n roll band Oasis. As the songwriter and composer behind the band, he’s responsible for anthemic songs, such as Rock ‘n’ Roll Star, Don’t Look Back in Anger and Wonderwall. However, check out the B-sides and you’ll hear more sensitive songs, such as The Masterplan, Talk Tonight and Rockin’ Chair.
Oasis famously disbanded in 2009, but refusing to sit on his laurels, Noel formedNoel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Almost as if he wanted to prove there was more than bombastic Brit-rock, he embraced electronic and experimental music, which has divided his fanbase.
