Oasis – The Artist
Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (lead vocals, tambourine), Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs (guitar), Paul “Guigsy” McGuigan (bass guitar) and Tony McCarroll (drums). Upon returning to Manchester, Liam’s older brother, Noel Gallagher (lead guitar, vocals) joined as a fifth member, which formed the band’s core and settled line-up. During the course of their existence, they had various line-up changes, though the Gallagher brothers remained as the staple members until the group’s demise.
StandBy Me – The Song
‘Stand By Me’ is a song by the English rock band Oasis, written by lead guitarist, Noel Gallagher. It was the second single to be released from the band’s third album, Be Here Now. Noel Gallagher claims to have written the song whilst suffering from food poisoning when he first moved to London. His mother Peggy would phone him to check on him and repeatedly told him to ensure he was eating properly. This spurred Gallagher to cook himself a proper British Sunday dinner, which resulted in a bout of food poisoning. The title for the song likely comes from the song “Stand by Me”, which was covered by the Gallaghers’ idol John Lennon. In a characteristic example of Noel Gallagher lifting elements from songs of which he is fond, the rousing sequence of chord changes between the repeated chorus lyrics ‘Stand by me/Nobody knows the way it’s gonna be’ bears a remarkable similarity to a similar chord sequence in Mott The Hoople’s “All the Young Dudes”, acknowledged by Gallagher: “It’s a bit like “Live Forever”, I suppose, with a touch of “All the Young Dudes” in the background—though I made sure I changed the chords.”
