Noel Gallagher's new fans should be fans of Justin Bieber

MILAN - Couldn't there be the daily, Christmas bullshit from Noel Gallagher fans? Of course not. In Italian we call it the "guastafeste", the killjoy.
"Who r the Griffiths?? Never heard of em." ...wondering whether they even call themselves 'Oasis fans'...leave it now.
I hope they're joking. Of course they're not. They're probably 11 years old. They ask if I have any INFO!!! ahahaha They think the Griffiths are probably a DETAIL in Oasis!!!!!
I wish they were "new" fans... they're just the usual blinded fans, idolsing Noel.
I understand that the new fans are kids, as Noel said, and of course they know a few things, and think Noel God Genius Galliga even created the world, but I think they should follow their new things, like Justin Bieber. Jesus Bieber, just born today.
Because of course I am also a fan of bands that existed even before I was born, as the Beatles, etc., but I didn't go around showing my ignorance before having studied their lives, and even saying that I know everything to older people who knew more than me and lived in that period. At least know the basics.
Without the Griffith brothers (Christopher and Anthony "Tony") Oasis wouldn't have existed. The Real People from Liverpool were one of the very first bands to play what is today known as “Britpop”.
Oasis were still unsigned and Noel contacted Tony and asked him to help record something decent to send out a demo to record companies.
"Because we'd got our own eight-track studio we let them come down to the Dock Road and record there," says Tony. "They were quite naive about recording, so we'd show them how to play the songs, how to think about the structure of the songs and the dynamics. We were just helping them because that's what bands do in Liverpool. I don't think it's quite the same in Manchester, because no one had done anything for them before."'
Chris and Tony Griffiths' input into the writing and recording process has since been fully acknowledged by Oasis.
Chris co-wrote "Rockin' Chair" with Noel in 1993 (published in 1995), Oasis' best song. Chris also wrote the lyrics for "Columbia" (main song at the beginning of Oasis) with Liam Gallagher being responsible for the chorus, and they're not credited. The truth is that the Griffiths helped Noel to write his first songs, Whatever as well.
Tony McCarroll, one of Oasis founders (with Bonehead and Guigsy, then Liam and NOT Noel) of course was there and in his book that had to be titled "Noel truth is nothing like the truth" he wrote that Noel 'acquired' much of his early songwriting catalogue from other bands (and here we're not just talking T-Rex, John Lennon, etc. etc. all the songs Noel copied). Tony suggests on numerous occasions that he took riffs, vocals and more from "Liverpool cult heroes The Real People (aka Chris and Tony Griffiths)".
"We spent over 3 months with The Real People and without them we would never have created 'Definitely Maybe'. The Griffiths boys were like a musical factory. After each session they would invariably sit us down and play us something new that they had composed. I clearly remember a fantastic ditty that Tony had knocked together on his keyboard. This melody would be later used by Noel as he constructed the single Whatever [and Noel had to pay money to Neil Innes for the copyright, having copied that too, from "How sweet to be an idiot"]. On top of this there was also Columbia, Rockin' Chair and Don’t Go Away. All songs that were ‘inspired’ by The Real People."
