During the 18 years that Oasis was a band, brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher, when not drinking, drugging and making outrageous statements to the press, bickered constantly. One imagines the fighting went back decades, but the first public signs emerged in 1996, when Liam refused to perform with Oasis at a taping of MTV Unplugged in England, opting to heckle the band from the balcony. He then refused to fly to America with Oasis, but joined the tour later and drunkenly acted out during a performance at the MTV VMAs, prompting Noel to fly back to England alone. The next dozen years proceeded similarly, with the two brothers constantly at odds as Liam’s substance abuse led to bar fights and botched or cancelled concerts. In 2009, Noel quit the band, issuing a statement that read in part, “I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.”
