Oasis’ Noel Gallagher wishes Barack Obama was British
Oasis’ Noel Gallagher has been writing a blog documenting his band’s current US tour, in which he revealed that he wishes that US Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama was British.
Gallagher explained that he watched Obama making his recent acceptance speech on US TV, which he felt particularly inspired by.
“Managed to catch that Barack Obama’s speech to the Democratic rally,” he wrote. “Impressive stuff. Spellbinding in fact. Wish he was one of ours. Why do Americans believe they’re electing the president of THE WORLD though?”
In Noel Gallagher’s blog, which is available to read on Oasisinet.com, the guitarist also revealed that he finds one of the most frustrating things about being on tour is fans constantly asking him for photos.
Writing about being in a hotel at the same time as a wedding, he wrote: “Some old lady approaches us to ask if we’d mind doing a ‘quick picture’ with the bride and groom! ‘Erm… no, I don’t think so’ (who do they think we are? Robbie Williams?) ‘Oh, go on, the bride will be heartbroken’. ‘Good’, I think to myself, and off we go to the venue.”
Gallagher also reveals that he has spent at least one night on the tour bus drinking until well into the next morning, that he managed to find fish and chips in the States and that the band listen to Jimi Hendrix and Hawkwind on the bus.
