“pretty battered” tambourine

After the album was released, engineer Nick Brine took the tambourine for himself.

“It was pretty battered by the end of the session and was going to be thrown away. But I claimed it”, he explained.

According to Brine, the tambourine has also been used by the likes of the Verve, Artic Monkeys, Kasabian and Supergrass.

The tambourine was sold at Hansons Auction in Derbyshire, following a bid of £3,600 from an internet bidder. This was seven times the guide price of £300-500.

The new owner of this instruement had said that they wanted the “opportunity to own a slice of British rock history”.

“The price took my breath away, its musical pedigree proved irresistible to bidders”, said Josh McCarthy of Hansons Auctioneers.

As for Liam Gallagher himself, the former Oasis frontman confirmed last month that his new album “C’mon You Know” will be released in May 2022.

He also revealed to Radio X the title of his next single.

The next single is gonna be called ‘Better Days’ and it’s full of sunshine”, he said. “And then there’s another one, ‘I Wish I Had More Power’, and it’s dedicated to Noel. Yeah, it’s a naughty little tune, but it’s lovely”. 

Liam also confirmed that he will perform live solo at the famous Knebworth stage on 4 June 2022.

It’s gonna be ‘This is history’ – Part Two, mate!”, Gallagher said. “The young folk want it. They’re always telling me, when are you gonna do this Knebworth thing? I think the time is now or neverI am excited, I mean I’ve done it before, and it was mega. The beautiful thing about it is, I couldn’t remember much about the first time.
