Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher Shocked By Burglar

Rocker Noel Gallagher was left unnerved after a crazed fan broke into his home just weeks after George Harrison was stabbed by a schizophrenic.
The former Oasis star moved to the British countryside in the late 1990s in a bid to kick his partying lifestyle in London after blowing $1.6 million (£1 million) on drugs.
Within weeks he arrived home to find a "weirdo" sitting in his kitchen - and the star kept the man talking while his then-wife Meg Mathews called cops.
Gallagher admits the incident was "freaky" and he was left shaken as Beatles legend Harrison had recently been stabbed seven times by crazed Michael Abram at his home in the English countryside.
The Wonderwall hitmaker tells NME magazine, "I'd been out one afternoon and come back and there was a bit of a commotion in the kitchen. There was a guy sat at the kitchen table who had just broke into my house. Just a guy. And this is just after George Harrison got stabbed and all.
"He'd travelled all this way, and he'd heard I recently moved there so he was just in there waiting for me, like it was the most normal thing in the world. I was with a friend of mine... so we sat around the kitchen, made him a cup of tea and kept him talking while my missus (wife) went to call the police.
"Now, where I lived was on a country lane and the police couldn't find the house, so I went down to the gate to let them in and said, 'There's a bit of a weirdo in the kitchen - I don't know what's happened, but it's pretty f**king freaky.'"
Cops arrested the man but it's believed no charges were brought.
