“still stand by my thoughts”
This enquiry from the fan comes after Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs a former bandmate of Gallagher, criticised the selection of Oasis’ ‘Live Forever’ as Radio X’s Best of British for 2023. A track which also featured on ‘Definitely Maybe’.
According to Arthurs, the B side track ‘Bonehead’s Bank Holiday’, should have received the nod.
“I still stand by my thoughts on that,” Arthurs insisted. “It’s a fix, right? I want steward’s enquiry. There must be a a sort of version of VAR in radio”.
“It got me, because I love listening to the [Best of British] Top 100 and it got me how many Oasis songs are in it. I genuinely love it. And it was getting to the Top 10 and I thought, ‘You know what? The winner’s gonna be Bonehead’s Bank Holiday. It really is!’”.
Elsewhere, Arthurs stated that neither he nor Gallagher would accept a Knighthood from the British monarchy if they were offered. More on this here.
