According to the Oasis chief, the pair performed The Beatles’ “Birthday” song and the classic hit “I Saw Her Standing There” after Gallagher played their set at the fashion designer’s party at the Cliven House Hotel in Buckinghamshire last week.
He told Matt Morgan weird how? podcast (via) Sun): “It wasn’t like I was there and they pulled me out of the crowd like a surprise. I was asked a few weeks back.
“I performed, I did some of my own stuff, and then someone said, ‘We’ll get you on stage with your dad.’ And I said, ‘Yeah fucking!’ It was quite a night and, as you can imagine, it was quite a moment for someone like me.”
Gallagher also stated that Ringo Starr attended the party and was disappointed that the Beatles drummer did not join the pair on stage.
“I performed with the bassist while the drummer watched,” he joked. “The only thing that could have made it better would have been that the rest of the Beatle was playing drums, but he wasn’t.
He said: “It wasn’t my party. I was only a guest so I can’t say, ‘I’ll only do it if Ringo does it. I’m either playing with the two of you, or I’m with either of you’ I am not playing.’ It was a good night though.”
During this, Oasis Nebworth 1996, A documentary capturing the iconic show, is released in theaters this weekend.
Gallagher recently stated that the documentary captures the youthful diversity of his audience when the band was “at its peak”, before developing what he called another “yoobish element” among them towards the end of his career.
Yesterday (20 September), previously unseen footage of Oasis performing ‘Champagne Supernova’ with The Stone Roses guitarist John Squire was also shared ahead of the film’s release..
In a five-star review of the documentary, Granthshala said: “For those who were there, the film provides a portal into a golden age. For everyone else, it is reminiscent of those special teen years – when a plastic cup full of hot lager in a park and a The sunny afternoon makes for the biggest adventure of your life.
Last week, meanwhile, the film’s director Jake Scott said he thinks the band will get back together.
“I would love to think so. It would be lovely,” he said Granthshala. “Oh my god this would be great wouldn’t it? Music has gotten so manipulated in the studio now. Just to see a solid rock n’ roll band again would be a wonderful thing.”
