Oasis Star Admits Plagiarism
Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher has openly admitted plagiarising a Burt Bacharach hit for his B-side HALF THE WORLD AWAY. The LAYLA guitarist has often been accused of being too heavily influenced by THE Beatles and T-Rex, but he has no qualms about revealing his pilfering of the Bacharach/HAL DAVID composed song THIS GUY'S IN LOVE WITH YOU. He says, "It sounds exactly the same. I'm surprised he hasn't sued me yet."
