noel gallagher Biography
Noel Gallagher, the English singer-songwriter and musician, was born in Manchester, England on May 29, 1967. He is the former lead guitarist, principal songwriter and occasional lead singer for Oasis. Currently Gallagher is the frontman for Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, his own solo project.
Gallagher grew up in Burnage, Manchester and started to play guitar when he was thirteen years old. After working several construction jobs, in 1988 Gallagher started to work as a technician and roadie with a local band called Inspiral Carpets. During this time his brother Liam started a band called The Rain. Eventually the band became known as Oasis. Noel joined Oasis as a guitarist and songwriter.
In 1994 Oasis released "Definitely Maybe," their debut album. The band rose to fame, heading the Britpop movement. In 1995 Oasis released "(What's the Story) Morning Glory," their second album. The set topped the album charts of several countries. "Be Here Now" the band's third studio album, was released in 1997. The album became the fastest-selling in the history of the UK charts. Eventually Britpop became less popular and the next two albums from Oasis were not able to revive it. Despite this, the last two Oasis albums, 2005's "Don't Believe the Truth" and 2008's "Dig Out Your Soul," found renewed success and were considered some of the band's best efforts.
In August 2009 Liam and Noel got into an altercation before a Paris concert. In October 2009 Noel left Oasis and confirmed he would be pursuing a solo career. In October 2011 the self-titled "Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds" album was released.
