And I love Oasis too. I think the reason lots of people don't is because of the Gallaghers' arrogant attitude. I got into them with the lowest of expectations, thinking that I will hate their pompous asses and then I heard Definitely Maybe and it changed my life.
When they came to Australia they got massive bad PR, Liam in his first press conference said he could have stabbed a crew member, Australia turned there backs on them really after he said that. I like a couple of theyre songs like Wonderwall & Half The World Away but to me its all a bit same'y, they were good for their time, I always preferred The Smiths though with Morrissey singing.
Heres the story;
Perhaps if they had been flying to Australia from the UK – a journey which can take up to 26 hours – you might excuse those bad boys from rock band, Oasis for being a bit fidgety. But in 1998, ahead of their tour of Australia, the band's members and their two dozen tag-alongs were making the much shorter journey from Hong Kong to Perth, on Australia's West Coast.
Apparently drunk before they got on board, lead singer Liam Gallagher defied the no-smoking policy on board the plane, and was promptly asked to stub out his cigarette. The Mancunian responded by throwing a hissy fit, thundering "obscene, offensive, and horribly abusive" language at other passengers.
While his brother Noel apparently slept, Gallagher began throwing food at those sat around him, encouraged by other band members, who promptly began raucous sing-alongs. The plane's captain threatened to conduct an emergency landing unless the group quietened down.
Eventually Gallagher led the stumbling entourage off the plane at Perth. Asked what he recalled of the event, he said: "Some panhead told me to shut up – some panhead who needs stabbing through the head with a f***ing pick-axe."
Following the flight, Cathay Pacific issued the Gallagher brothers and the rest of Oasis with a lifelong ban.
