Noel Gallagher has said there is an Oasis lyric book missing somewhere, most likely in the bin after the band got thrown out of a hotel.
Speaking on Matt Morgan’s Funny How? podcast, he said:
“I did lose a load of lyrics early on in Oasis,” he admits. “We got slung out of a hotel in Manchester – The Britannia, The Midland…one of those – by the police and a lyric book went missing.
“It has not surfaced, and it was in 1993 or 1994, so somebody has just launched it in a bin haven’t they?”
Gallagher also went on to explain in the podcast how the band had ruined their chances of cracking the US:
“It was the start of our big crack at America and our first gig was an absolutely f***ing shambles of drugs and booze,” he said.
“That part of the tour, I don’t really remember it. They were crazy days. It was fun. We wore it well.
“The American tours were always fraught with tension. We were just being drunk and idiots – young and daft and running with the wheels off.
“You can only do it at a certain age.
“It’s insanity – but they were good days, though.”
