Noel Gallagher, one of the most astute observers of pop culture has claimed that Oasis were the last great traditional rock n roll band.
Noel told Time magazine:ÃÂ “We don’t live in an era where indie rock bands sell 60 million albums. Oasis were the last great, traditional rock’n’roll band.”
Is he right? Is pop music a playground for X Factor pop? Has the Internet killed rock n roll? Are rock n roll band’s over or is there a bunch of 16 year olds our there somewhere in a grimy rehearsal room about to re-write the rules yet again?
