Noel is successful thanks to Oasis only

LONDON - A rare photo: Noel signing an autograph. As every old Oasis fan knows, he almost never wanted, not even photos. In fact, here he still doesn't seem to be happy.
The narrative that Noel Gallagher was Oasis, and that Liam missing his own band is 'news' is absurd. Liam didn't quit the band. He may have fought with his brother, but Noel's made a career out of throwing Liam under the bus at every opportunity.
Noel recently talking about the infamous 1996 US tour:
"The first gig was a 16,000-seat arena, and the singer's not turned up. That killed us stone dead in America. This is rock'n'roll. Would Johnny Rotten have gotten a house on the eve of an American tour? Keith Richards? John Lennon? You either want it or you don't, and I blame him for us never becoming as big in America as we were in England."
(For the record, John Lennon incited Americans to smash Beatles albums with his infamous 'bigger than Jesus' comment and they still remained "big in America").
While Noel's claim is ridiculous (and often repeated), it keeps him from accepting the truth. There's something that is much more likely to have killed Oasis dead in America: "Be Here Now".
Liam's voice was perfect on "Be Here Now". Liam wasn't the problem. It was the songs and the production. The songs were (in some cases) not good and (in most cases) an overproduced mess. Johnny Depp on guitar for the ludicrous "Fade In-Out" (that seemed to channel Bon Jovi) and "Stay Young" is a b-side? It was the captain that ran that ship aground. Just listen to the acoustic version of "Stand by Me" without the ridiculous guitar intro. Great song. "Magic Pie" on the other hand...
You can't claim to be "The Chief" and only take the credit. You have to take the blame as well [same for the split: Liam took his part of the blame, Noel didn't... it's unreal]. All the negative attention that gets directed at Oasis always falls on Liam, and Noel likes it that way. "Whatever gets you through the night", eh?
Oasis was Liam's band. He loved it enough to stay. Noel wanted out. So did McCartney. It's just easier to blame John and Yoko (and play the victim) than man-up and accept the fact that you're the one who decided to leave.
This 'My little brother was picking on me!' routine is getting old, and Noel is still killing his new work with overproduction.
Beady Eye achieved whatever it did on its own merit, and with the intense scrutiny that always gets directed at Liam. Noel, with all the credit and benefit of the doubt, didn't do much better with his album, and he sold tickets to his concerts with Oasis' hits, not his new album.

Noel fans saying it was 100% Liam's fault, shows how unreal they are.
It was 99% Noel's fault.

God bless Liam! All these years Noel pretended he was Abel and Liam was Cain--now it's been PROVEN that Liam really was Abel and Noel is Cain.

Let me know when Noel does something new and massive outside of Oasis, and then he'll have done something Liam hasn't. HFB did sell more records than BE, though. Justin Bieber's album has sold more albums than both of those albums combined. Is that how we should define success?
There is not one song on the album that compares to his best, he hasn't had a hit song since "The Importance of Being idle", and his creative output has slowed to a trickle.
The new music is anemic, to say the least.
There are Beady Eye b-sides that have more vitality than some of Noel's HFB 'hits'.

The only other Brit in the 20th Century as great as Margaret Thatcher was Winston Churchill. I hope she is given the huge state funeral she deserves, and is buried in Westminster Abbey. Noel can go be a toadstool in Hell.
