Noel Gallagher

Noel Gallagher, the iconic songwriter and guitarist, was born on May 29, 1967, in Manchester, England. His musical journey began in the late 1980s when he joined the band Inspiral Carpets as a roadie. However, it was his role as the lead guitarist and principal songwriter of Oasis that would catapult him to fame.


In 1994, Oasis released their debut album, "Definitely Maybe," which became the fastest-selling debut album in UK chart history at the time. Hits like "Live Forever" and "Supersonic" showcased Gallagher's knack for crafting anthemic melodies and memorable lyrics.

The following year, Oasis released their sophomore album, "(What's the Story) Morning Glory?," which catapulted them to international superstardom. The album featured iconic tracks like "Wonderwall" and "Don't Look Back in Anger," solidifying Gallagher's reputation as one of Britain's most talented songwriters.

Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, Oasis dominated the Britpop scene with albums like "Be Here Now" (1997) and "Standing on the Shoulder of Giants" (2000). Gallagher's songwriting prowess and distinctive guitar playing were central to the band's success.

Offstage, Gallagher was known for his outspoken personality and sharp wit. His colorful interviews and candid remarks made him a media darling and earned him a reputation as a rock 'n' roll provocateur.

In 2009, Oasis disbanded following a feud between Noel and his brother, Liam Gallagher. Noel went on to form his own band, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, releasing a string of successful albums including their self-titled debut in 2011 and "Chasing Yesterday" in 2015.

Despite his brash exterior, he's been known to express gratitude for his success, once quipping, "I'm not arrogant, I'm just aware of my own greatness."
