Noel Gallagher - AOL Music - 7th November 2006
Oasis' Noel Gallagher has embarked on a mini-world tour to promote his band's best-of CD, 'Stop the Clocks,' due out Nov. 21.
The axeman's next tour city will be Los Angeles, where he'll play Friday. So far Gallagher's solo sets have consisted of 14 songs, only half of which actually appear on the new CD/DVD package. Gallagher says the shows, including one in London, England, last week, have been, well, interesting.
"[It] was very boisterous. It was quite overwhelming, to be honest," he tells AOL Music. "I sat on a chair with a guitar, and I couldn't hear anything over the crowd singing. My sound engineer tried to rectify it and ended up blowing up the PA."
Known for their tumultuous history, which has seen walkouts by frontman Liam Gallagher and the departure of several members over the years, we wondered whether the album provides some kind of closure.
"I guess it's the end of something. I don't think it's the end of the band," Gallagher says. "Nobody's expressed any interest in doing anything else other than another album."
