Gallagher Regrets Recording Be Here Now In Paradise
Noel Gallagher regrets jetting off to write much-criticised Oasis album BE HERE NOW with celebrity pals Johnny Depp, SIR Mick Jagger and Kate Moss - because he came back with a dud.
The rocker decided to write and record the demo for the album on the Caribbean island of Mustique, while hanging out with his superstar pals - but he admits it was a big mistake.
He tells the new issue of America's Spin magazine, "I was doing it for the wrong reasons. And thats how you get a situation where at the beginning of (Be Here Now single) DYou Know What I Mean? theres no music for the first minute. Its the sound of an airplane landing.
"Of course, we thought it was the most amazing thing wed ever recorded. We took the tapes back to Sony in London, and youve got all the suits sitting round the boardroom stereo thinking, 'These f**king jokers are riding on the biggest expectations of any band this decade, and they have recorded a plane landing.'"
