Noel Gallagher Proposes Petition To Break Up Foo Fighters

Noel Gallagher Proposes Petition To Break Up Foo Fighters

Definitely Maybe is 25-years-old, Oasis broke up 10 years ago - and it seems Foo Fighters are as keen as the rest of us for the band to reunite already.

The US rockers used their headline set at Reading Festival to campaign for a much-craved truce between the Gallagher brothers, with drummer Taylor Hawkins even adorning his bass drum with a photo of the pair.

According to Consequence of Sound, Hawkins told the crowd: "One of these days we'll get Oasis back. One of these days.

"We're trying. Let's sign a petition. Everyone here, okay?"

Frontman, Dave Grohl, then asked: "How many people wanna see Oasis f*****g play a show?"

Presumably, the Foos never really envisaged their rallying cry healing more than a decade of mutual resentment. However, even given the brothers' infamous lack of care for diplomacy, Hawkins and Grohl will most likely be quite disappointed by the response.

Addressing the crowd at a gig in San Diego last (Wednesday) night, Noel said: "Any Oasis fans in the house? F*****' love that s***.

"Is anyone gonna sign the petition Dave Grohl wants to get us back together? I'd like to start a petition to get the Foo Fighters to split up. If that would be at all possible."

Ouch.

Meanwhile, younger brother Liam is a little preoccupied pitching a musical about the story of Oasis.

In a tweet, he said: "Oasis the musical, five lads from Manchester start a band and take on the world. The little 1 who writes the songs turns into a massive c*** sacks everyone except his little brother as he ain't got the a*** splits up the band there's a story line for ya THE END LG x"

There is clearly an appetite for the musical, as the tweet has received more than 60,000 likes - however, Noel would no doubt have a few issues with the script as it stands.

One thing that's for sure, is that the band's remarkable rise all started 25 years ago with the release of Definitely Maybe.

To mark the anniversary, a new exhibition will showcase never-before-seen images of Oasis.

Memorabilia and behind-the-scenes photos will be displayed at the London show. Images from guitarist Bonehead's front room to shots taken during recording sessions at at Rockfield Studios.

The scenes were captured by photographer Michael Spencer Jones, who was the genius behind the Definitely Maybe album cover. He was also the only photographer to be given full access during the bands's pre-fame days and their infamous world tour in 1997 and 1998.

He said: "I hope this exhibition gives fans a chance to pause and reflect and look back upon a time when the face and image of Britain was being revolutionised from below."

Michael Spencer Jones' Masterplan25 exhibition will run from 23 November until 12 January at h Club Gallery, London.
