Oasis "shitstorm" gets closer?
Oasis leader Noel Gallagher recently told told Q magazine that brother Liam "will fucking freak out" at Noel's suggestion that every Oasis member should record a solo record before the band reconvene.

"If everyone starts going off doing solo records then you might as well just split the band up" Liam Gallagher
"I could do that, but I don't want to do that," Liam growls. "I'm in Oasis, you know what I mean. If everyone starts going off doing solo records then you might as well just fucking split the band up, you know what I mean? I'm part of a band and that's the way it is.
"If you go on going off doing solo records then there's no Oasis, you know what I mean. Someone's gotta be here keeping it together."
Noel Gallagher has confirmed he will record a solo album next: "I've got a lot of songs lying around and some of them are really great. But they're not Oasis songs.
"They're going to sit there and do nothing, so hopefully at the end of this tour I'm going to go and do something for myself."
