by Andrew David James

…After 15 years struggling along with his failed outfit Oasis, little known singer/songwriter Noel Gallagher decided to leave the group after a rather nasty altercation with lead singer and his younger brother Liam that involved a plum. Oasis had a small but loyal fan base who followed them as they toured British Legions and Working Men’s clubs in the North West of England.
