A look at the musician who is as well-known for his singer-songwriting talent as he is for his controversial, outspoken statements and his tempestuous relationships
With the renowned Britpop band Oasis at the forefront of the Britpop movement in the 1990s, Noel Gallagher was responsible for writing some of the big anthems of the period, including "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova." At their peak they were playing sold-out concerts to more than 200,000 people. But what is the truth about the boy from Manchester? How did his relationship with his father affect him? What caused the public and personal rivalry with fellow Britpop band Blur? Why has he always had such a turbulent relationship with his brother and the front man of Oasis, Liam? Is the band over for good this time? This book maps out Noel's story from the beginning, taking readers from his dysfunctional upbringing in Manchester to the man fans know now.
