BOMBSHELL?: Noel quits Oasis

Noel Gallagher has announced he is to leave Oasis.

In a message on the band's website, the guitarist and songwriter said: "It's with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer. Apologies to all the people who bought tickets to the shows in Paris Konstanz and Milan."

The news comes after the band cancelled their second big festival show in the space of a week.

They were due to play tonight at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris. However, according to reports Noel and Liam were involved in a fight backstage minutes before they were scheduled to go on stage.

Last weekend Oasis pulled out of the V festival, with Liam reportedly suffering from viral laryngitis.

Noel's announcement follows months of speculation that the band might be splitting.

In an NME interview last week, Liam admitted that the pair weren't currently speaking, saying: "It takes more than blood to be my brother."

This is far from the first time the Gallagher brothers have fallen out.

In 1995, Liam famously refused to join the band on a crucial American tour, leaving Noel to take on lead vocal duties.

However, neither Noel or Liam – the two pivotal members of the group – have ever officially left the band before.

Oasis formed in Manchester in 1991, releasing their debut album Definitely Maybe three years later.

The follow up, What's the Story (Morning Glory), arrived in 1995, establishing them as the biggest rock band in Britain.

It was at this point that the stormy nature of the Gallagher brothers' relationship came to light, with tales of late night brawls marring the recording sessions.

However, the band continued, releasing a further seven albums, and despite frequent and public squabbling between them, the brothers always reconciled.

Whether this latest argument will be resolved remains to be seen.

Not really a bombshell I guess, it was bound to happen one of these days judging by all the reports. Shame, Noel was the man behind Oasis imo.

I hope they stay broken up. They haven't released an album that wasn't either boring or a complete embarassment since the Masterplan. Besides, Noel wrote the songs, he played the guitar riffs that made them so popular and frankly, has a much better voice. I always thought he should do a solo would probably be great.

I think it is Carlitos Tévez´s bad influence:

Eleni Daniilidou - Iveta Benesova - Melanie Klaffner - Gisela Dulko - Daniela Hantuchova - Jelena Dokic - Karolina Sprem -

Re: BOMBSHELL?: Noel quits Oasis

The sudden departure of Noel Gallagher from Oasis this weekend has left fans wondering just what went down between the brothers Gallagher!

Noel and Liam Gallagher have always been known for their infamously volatile relationship, but a recent remark Liam made regarding Noel's daughter, Anais, was reportedly the final nail in the coffin for Noel!

Liam allegedly "jokingly suggested" that Noel was not the real father of his 9-year-old daughter!!!

"It was a dumb thing to say," an insider close to the brothers says. "They had a big fight when he made the gag. Noel went for him. He was in a blind fury. And he still hasn't calmed down."

Noel considered his brother's comment "unforgivable," which led to his abrupt exit from the band before Oasis' gig at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris on Friday night.

Liam is confident Oasis will succeed without Noel, telling his friends: "If Noel thinks he can just walk away from me and the band then I will obliterate him. He'll be begging to rejoin my band."

Re: BOMBSHELL?: Noel quits Oasis

liam gallagher is simply thick as pigshit - his mother must be ashamed - as his brother, who's not exactly ego-less, has pointed out time and time again.

anyway, oasis are quite meaningless these days anyway, so i don't think too many people care.

They haven't made a decent record since the 90s.
