“And all the roads we have to walk are winding.”
Noel Gallagher (1967- ) “Wonderwall” (1995)
A Manchester native, Gallagher started in rock as a roadie and technician for the band
Inspiral Carpets, but quickly joined Oasis, originally formed by his brother Liam, as guitarist and songwriter. Leaders of the Britpop movement, which was a less dour alternative to the grunge and metal also popular at the time, the career of the band was marked by the battle between the brothers, and their extreme lifestyle. They enjoyed a marked degree of commercial and artistic success with several top selling records, but the turbulence, and a public fight, led to Noel Gallagher leaving the band in 2009.
