No Musical For Oasis

Rocker Noel Gallagher has dismissed rumours his band are preparing to write the score for an Oasis musical.
The group were reportedly set to pen a staged musical adaptation of their inspirational rise to fame - from their tough upbringing in Manchester, England, to the height of their Brit Pop success.
The musical was alleged to be in a similar style to Queen's We Will Rock You stageshow - which has proved a huge hit with theatre-goers in London's West End.
But the musician doesn't believe his backstory would be a good musical - mocking the idea of a huge Liam Gallagher statue outside a well-known theatre.
He tells BBC 6 Music, "It would have been funny to have that theatre with Freddie Mercury in front (but instead) a big Liam with his hands behind his back."
"Live Forever a.k.a. Mad For It The Musical. The rags to riches story of four lads from Burnage who shook the end of the street."
