Liam Gallagher, wild-man vocalist of British rock band Oasis detained after a brawl in a five-star Munich hotel at the weekend, has been freed from jail after posting bail of more than $100,000, police said Monday. A Munich police source told Reuters Gallagher was released Sunday after his management team came up with the bail. He faces charges of grievous bodily assault and resisting arrest for beating a number of people, including a police officer
DDP: Well, there's this little passage I got memorized, Diamond Dallas 25:17. Sort of fits this occasion:
"The path of the bookerman is beset on all sides by the inequities of the talented, and the tyranny of workrate freaks. Blessed is he, who in the name of tradition and sports entertainment carries the stiffs through the matches of Nitro, for he is truly the workrate's keeper, and the finder of lost quality. And I will lay the smack down upon thee with great vengeance and furious roid rage those who attempt to outwrestle and expose my brothers. And you will know my name as the Bookerman, when I lay my catchphrase upon thee!"
Correct me if I'm wrong on this - Noel writes the music, writes the lyrics and sings half the vocals. Liam sings the other half of the vocals, and has an annoying nasally voice, whereas Noel has a decent singing voice. Why exactly is Liam still in the band?
"Of course the people don't want war ...but, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship ... voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger." ----------Hermann Goering, one of the original Nazis at his Nuremberg trial in 1946
"According to witness statements, the band members first argued among themselves," he added. "Then they started hitting each other and were shoving each other around in the nightclub.
"In the midst of all of this one of the musicians fell on a table at which a group of five to six Italians were sitting ... A brawl ensued -- band members and their security guards attacked other guests in the club."
Speaking as a big Oasis fan ... ha ha ha wicked. ROCK AND ROLL BABY.
You wouldn't see any pansy boy band get into a brawl in a Munich night club. You wouldn't see any poser nu-metal band get into a brawl in a Munich night club.
The Beatles got into brawls in Munich night clubs. Killed one of them too -- or maybe that was a brawl at a Liverpool night club. The Clash I could see get into brawls in Munich night clubs. And fucking Oasis get into brawls in fucking Munich night clubs. Here's a new test for Rock and Roll Authenticity: Would the fucking band get into a bloody fucking brawl in a fucking Munich night club?
Think I'm gonna put on Standing on the Shoulders of Giants and crank it up nice and loud ... if the neighbours complain they're gonna get a punch in the mouth, just like Liam would do!
You put on your brave face and slip over the road, for a jar. Fixing your grin as you casually lean on the bar. Laughing too loud at the rest of the world, with the boys in the crowd. You can hide, hide, hide ... behind petrified eyes.
Remember when I was gonna quit doing these? It turns out that I'm good at slowing down but bad at actually stopping. Normally, I stick a list of upcoming shows at the bottom of each concert review, but what the heck, let's put the list first this time.
