As the driving force behind Britpop giants Oasis - and, more recently, his own High Flying Birds - Noel Gallagher has been hailed as one of the finest songwriters and most notable rock stars of his generation. Off stage, however, the forthright frontman is just as notorious for his quick wit and unfettered remarks as he is for his musical genius and iconic songbook. From stories of his famously tempestuous relationship with younger brother Liam to candid appraisals of the (lesser) talents of fellow musicians, the Mancunian motormouth is never one to shy away from controversy, and has spent more than two decades commenting on topics as diverse as politics and popstars, novels and narcotics, fame and family, the Beatles and Blur - as well as the not infrequent blowing of his own trumpet. Here, in this laugh-out-loud volume, Melissa Bond brings together his sharpest insights and most gratuitous insults, providing the ultimate guide to Noel Gallagher and his high-flying words.
