We don't want to accuse Noel Gallagher of lying... oh, alright, we do. Perhaps he's just trying to create a myth to challenge the old Crossroads one. But we don't believe his reasons for why he values Sgt Pepper:
“So when I was being born in St Mary’s Manchester it was being played on hospital radio.”
Hospital radio. In Manchester. In 1967. Getting - and playing - a prerelease album. And it's on in the delivery room.
You might as well claim that Ringo was drumming to help Peggy keep her breathing in rhythm.
Nowadays, of course, Noel is great muckers with Paul, mind:
“I was gutted about missing the gig but when your missus is pregnant, it’s like you’re pregnant, so I didn’t go out.”
So Noel's not going... anywhere... out... but... it's like he's phoning it in or something, isn't it... phone... how would you use the phone if you only had little legs? In an emergency or something. Hmm...
