Noel Gallagher is the one guy in the group I never did like. I liked it when Liam got sick and had like lunge problems cause of all the drinking and smoking and sat at his own concert and watched it. That was funny.

Liam is a rockstar, this Noel guy is like Paul Mccartney lite. Also, on their best day Oasis was never ever ever ever as Good as Echo & The bunny men or Morning runner. Oasis is good, just not profound.

Yeah because music, films and other social problems pay no part what so ever in knife crime at all.

members of a band called Oasis, who are role models to millions of fans, yet go around getting drunk and beating up reporters doesn't have anything to do with with violent crime???

Ahhh come on. Noel, stick to playing the guitar and moaning about Jay-Z. Leave video games alone!!!

Maybe he's pissed because he can't master 'Through the fire and flames' on GH3!!!

My big question is, why haven't they shut down 'Stabby-Stab Knife Warehouse and Emporium'. Who's handing out the knives to everyone?
