Surprise! Not!

To the surprise of no one (and by no one, I mean me because I knew their peace of the last couple years would never last) Noel Gallagher is quitting Oasis because he hates his brother Liam and "simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.". Again.

It's about damn time! These two make the best music when they hate each other, and they also have the most entertaining drama when they hate each other.

Some of the Gallagher brother's greatest hits(pun intended) include:

*During their first American tour in 1994,Liam took to changing the words of Noel's songs so that they were offensive to both Americans and Noel. A confrontation after the show led to a chair being thrown and Noel leaving the tour.

*During recording sessions for the second Oasis album, (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, the brothers had a violent fight involving a cricket bat, when Liam invited everyone from a local pub back into the studio while Noel was trying to work. Noel got a hold of the bat and whacked Liam over the head with it. The fight ended with Noel breaking Liam's foot.

*Tension mounted between the Gallaghers when Liam backed out on Oasis' MTV Unplugged set minutes before it was due to start. Noel was forced to fill in at the last minute. Liam claimed to have been struck down with a "sore throat" and that he doesn't like performing acoustically, though Noel claims he was hung-over. Noel was further angered when Liam proceeded to heckle him from the balcony while the band performed.

*While on tour in Barcelona in May 2000, Oasis were forced to cancel a gig when drummer Alan White's arm seized up, and the band spent the night drinking instead. During the night, Liam made a derogatory comment about Noel's then wife, Meg Mathews (apparently questioning the legitimacy of Noel's daughter), leading to a fight. Noel announced the next day he was quitting the tour.

You know, I never want, say, the JoBros to end up like that, but for some reason I *love* it when Liam and Noel hate each other.

Oh, those two. If they weren't so gruesome I'm sure there would be gallons of incestfic about them.

I don't know if they can ever eclipse the original fighting brothers of British rock, Ray and Dave Davies, but the stories are rather glorious.
