I added other things in the previous post about Alcatraz. Here's another "amarcord", that means "memory", name from a movie by Federico Fellini (in his dialect, ="I remember" :).

They spent the night drinking, the brothers had a fight and Liam made a comment towards Meg, Noel's former wife, doubting Anais was really Noel's daughter, lol. Noel left the band (as in 1994 and 2009...) and in those days went to Ibiza where he met Sara...
In Milan @ Assago FilaForum there was another guitarist, Matt Deighton, and it was the first time live in Italy for Gem and Andy. Gem was the lead guitar in the place of Noel, Matt the rhythm guitar.
