Don't Look Back in Anger



Video: Filmed by myself 29th of November 2008. Monterrey, Mexico.

I had been working all morning long so I decided to take a break… I found on Facebook this thing on which you have to answer a few questions with songs from only one singer or band…

Of course, it had to be Oasis…

Right when I was about to finish answering the questions, I got a Tweet from Oasis’s official Twitter:

“RT @oasis: A statement from Noel: http://bit.ly/VTa6W”

That was a bit shady, so I rushed in and read:

“A STATEMENT FROM NOEL"
28 August 2009

"It's with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.

Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan."

Are you serious?! Is this for real?! During the last months, Liam and Noel had been arguing over the internet, Noel posting insults against his brother on his blog “Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere” and Liam answering back on his Twitter page. I had seen this as pure entertainment... But tonight, they have cancelled their second festival appearance in a row.

As for now, I feel very anxious, nervous and I’m laughing out loud... I don’t think I feel sad because after all this feels like nothing but like a flashback or a déjà vu!!

I’ve been a fan of Oasis for 14 years now, I’ve seen them live 8 times in my life in 3 different continents and own over 200 items of Oasis memorabilia but because I know them I’m not sad right now... I simply don’t believe they’re actually splitting up.

No, it’s not denial, it is knowing their history and just how many times they’ve done this in the past... Only thing that worries me is: This time it’s been posted “officially”.

We might be living the end of an era and I’m still laughing... Well, we’ll see what happens...
