Manchester supergroup Oasis have parted company with the latest in a long line of drummers.
Former Robbie Williams drummer Chris Sharrock has left the band after a disagreement between himself and lead singer Liam Gallagher turned violent over a 50/50 question about the capital of Australia during a live broadcast of Celebrity 'Who wants to be a millionaire?'.
Noel Gallagher confirmed Sharrocks departure and blamed the high turnover of drummers in Oasis on his brothers flippant and superior attitude toward percussion artistes in general.
"Our Liam's hated drummers since Ringo Starr told him that Pete Best was George Best's brother..... He calls them 'bongo boy's.' I dont blame them for leaving, who wants to ridiculed by monkey boy singing 'the bongo songo?'
It's no life."
Oasis are currently touring the UK but Noel was keen to point out that all concerts will go ahead as planned.
"We've already got a drummer up to replace Chris, you know the Gorilla on the chocolate ad?...... 'Dairy milk Dave, Dave Silverback. Signed this morning and starts rehearsals tomorrow. See Liam bully this one.
I wanted to sign him a few years back but he was busy filming wildlife documentaries with National Geographic and trying to run a gorillagram business at the same time.
Kin great drummer!
