Noel Gallagher takes a tumble on YouTube
Music lover floors Oasis guitar-botherer
A fan at the V Festival in Toronto has posted on YouTube entertaining footage of Noel Gallagher taking an unscheduled tumble during a performance of Morning Glory:
Quite what provoked this attack is a bit of a mystery, but one commenter suggests the assailant had "obviously heard the new album". Whatever the truth, the chap was evidently lucky to escape a battering at the hands of Noel's fist-happy bruv Liam. ®
Get a grip, Reg commentards
Whether or not you think the Gallagher brothers are gobshites, whether or not you think Oasis is a crap act, the fact is that drunken pusballs attacking the turn is not only mindless and potentially injurious but is sticking one up the punters.
If you think assault is funny, put your favourite band in Oasis's place. Still funny? Watch some 'happy slapping' footage. Still funny? Two hoodies kicking the shit out of a pensioner. Still funny?
Assault. Very fucking droll. To laugh at this is to condone mindless violence.
I can't stop watching it....
It's like ten Christmases rolled into one :-)
What also makes me laugh is media reports that Liam had to be restrained from retaliating!
If you actually watch you see he stays back until Security have a good hold of our hero, then he gingerly goes in whilst holding his arm out backwards for someone to grab hold of and 'restrain' him.
He's a soft shite!
Noel vs Keith...
....comparing this incident to the video of Keith Richards attacking a stage marauder with this guitar isn't valid - Noel didn't see this bloke coming at all, or certainly not until it was too late to do anything about it.
Richards on the other hand (if you watch the vid) has enough time to take his guitar right off, balance himself and tw*t the little bleeder before he even has a chance to lay a finger on him.
