Noel Gallagher has revealed that he once lost a full book of Oasis lyrics.
Speaking on Matt Morgan’s Funny How? podcast, Gallagher revealed that he lost the lyrics after being thrown out of a hotel in Manchester in the early nineties.
Gallagher said: “I did lose a load of lyrics early on in Oasis. 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.”
He added: “It has not surfaced, and it was in 1993 or 1994, so somebody has just launched it in a bin haven’t they?”
In the same podcast, Gallagher also opened up about how he thought the band ruined their chances of finding success in the US.
Gallagher added: “It was the start of our big crack at America and our first gig was an absolutely fucking shambles of drugs and booze.”
“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.”
