Noel Thomas David Gallagher (born 29 May 1967), an English musician of Irish background, is best known as the former lead guitarist, backing vocalist and principal songwriter of the English rock band Oasis.
Raised in Burnage, Manchester with brother Liam, Noel began learning guitar at the age of thirteen. After a series of odd jobs in construction, Noel worked for local Manchester band, Inspiral Carpets as a roadie and technician in 1988. Whilst touring with the Inspiral Carpets, he learned that Liam had formed a band of his own, known as The Rain, which eventually took on the name "Oasis". After Noel returned to England, he was invited by Liam to join Oasis as songwriter and guitarist.
Oasis' debut album, Definitely Maybe (1994) marked the beginning of the band's rise to fame as head of the Britpop movement. Oasis' second album, (What's the Story) Morning Glory? reached the top of the album charts in many countries. Britpop soon declined in popularity, and Oasis' next three albums failed to revive its popularity, however the band's final two albums Don't Believe the Truth (2005) and Dig Out Your Soul (2008) were hailed as the band's best efforts in over a decade, which found the band renewed success. On 28 August 2009, following an altercation with Liam prior to a gig in Paris, Noel announced his departure from Oasis and on 23 October 2009, he confirmed he would embark on a solo career.
