    Also this


    Oasis got noticed covering "I am the Walrus," but aside from some passing similarities, I don't hear them as a Beatles copycat. Saying Oasis is ripping off the Beatles is like saying all (people of whatever ethnicity) look the same.

    OK, here they have an undeniable Slade influence, with agreed, their own sound. In the studio, the Beatles comparisons cannot be ignored. They are there, whether one wishes to acknowledge it or not. We are all influenced by our predecessors.

    oh absolutely they use beatles riffs/lines here and there, noel isn't shy about saying so. they don't have the subtlety to really sound like the beatles though, much closer sex pistols/slade in delivery live. Early on liam was penned as half lennon half jonny rotten

    Noel Gallagher is one of the funniest rock stars ever, the right mix of asshole and self depreciation. He's been doing his own band called High Flying Birds for a while.


    His voice is really good. Much better than Liam's imo.

    Noel Gallagher is arguably the best songwriter of his generation. Yes, there are Beatles influences, but also many others. Let's be honest though, how can one be working in this genre of music and NOT be influenced by the Beatles.

    However, I think Oasis, like many of the greats, continued to grow and evolve over the course of their many albums. I agree with the earlier post that "Dig Out Your Soul" is easily one the their best (it didn't hurt that they had Gem, Andy, and Zak along for the ride either).

    I mean, seriously, look at Beatles, starting off with a cover of "Twist and Shout" and going on to record the White Album and "Abbey Road." Light years, but you got to start somewhere.

    Just because Oasis were English and absolutely huge, they get the obvious Beatles comparisons, but to me their music is just not the same.

    I visited England in the mid 90's and it was just so cool to feel how vital they were.

    Yes, I do like the Verve too! (and the Smiths, Jam, Kinks, Blur, on and on)

    The singer is in a new band, I saw them on "Live At Abby Road" a few weeks ago on axcess tv. I will have to go look at it again and repot back. Even though it has nothing to do with OP.

    Noel is a huge Slade fan and had Noddy Holder as guest of honour at their Manchester stadium gig in the mid 90s.

    I'm almost positive I was at that Sac show. Incoukdnhabe sworn it was 94. I saw fIREHOSE the same year at the Cattle Club as well. If I remember there was one local Sac band and another national act. IDK. Saw the Verve about 4 times or so.

    Oasis was up there with the 2nd tier US rock bands in the 90s as far as popularity goes. I don't think they were as popular as STP, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, etc., but they had Wonderwall and Champagne Supernova all over the radio for a good while.

    I really liked "What's the Story Morning Glory" although the way it was produced gave my ears listening fatigue after a while (too much treble or something?). Don't Go Away is also a great song.

    As for being copycats or whatever, I wouldn't say they were revolutionary or anything, but everyone is inspired by someone, so...who cares? /shrug

    They wrote a handful of solid, memorable songs if nothing else.
