  • Chris Sharrock Is Awesome

    …because he digs Stella and can hold his drink, at least according to his new employer, Liam Gallagher:

    It was cool when we went out the other night. Chris didn’t chew me ear off, he let me speak. He drinks Stella and he’s not a fucking lightweight. He can handle his beverages and he can play the drums.

    Gallagher recruited Sharrock last year to play drums in Oasis, swiping the stickman from Robbie Williams’s band.

  • Oasis Pick New Drummer

    Well, Zak Starkey is definitely not manning the Oasis throne any longer (though we still don’t know if he was booted or jumped off), and the brothers Gallagher have wasted no time in announcing a replacement—Chris Sharrock.

    …Who the hell is he? Sharrock is none other than the drummer who until a few days ago had spent over a decade backing up Robbie Williams.
    And just who the hell is Robbie Williams? He’s that Brit dude who did “Angels” way back in 1997 and still makes a good number of 30-something Continental hotties swoon.

    Because Oasis still makes only a small number of 30-something music geeks swoon, we’re not terribly sure Sharrock made the right decision.
    (A side note more interesting than the actual news item: swiping Sharrock is apparently quite a catty coup for Noel Gallagher, who once called Williams “the fat dancer from Take That.”)
