“Oasis: What Happened to the Band Members Since Their Iconic Era?”
Oasis, 30 Years Later
Nearly three decades have passed since Oasis stormed onto the music scene with chart-toppers like “Wonderwall” and “Whatever.”
Over the years, much has changed for the iconic band, with its members embarking on separate journeys, including solo music careers.
Oasis’ Early Days and Lineup Changes
Oasis, born in Manchester in 1991, initially comprised five members:
Liam and Noel Gallagher, Paul Arthurs, Paul McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll. However, the band has seen several lineup changes over the years.
Bitter Feud: The Gallagher Brothers
One of the most prominent aspects of Oasis’ history is the longstanding feud between brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher.
Their rift became public when a backstage fight at a Paris festival in 2009 led to the band’s breakup. Rumors of a reunion have periodically surfaced, but so far, none have materialized.
Solo Careers: Oasis Members’ Musical Ventures
Since the Oasis era, many band members have pursued their own musical careers. Noel formed “High Flying Birds” in 2010, and his albums, including “Chasing Yesterday” and “Who Built The Moon?,” enjoyed chart-topping success.
Liam, on the other hand, found success with rock band Beady Eye and as a solo artist, with all his solo albums reaching number one in the UK.
Paul McGuigan, Tony McCarroll, and Paul Arthurs’ Musical Paths
While Paul McGuigan’s musical endeavors are less known, Tony McCarroll reportedly performed with the band Raika.
Paul Arthurs, who didn’t abandon music after leaving Oasis in 1999, established his recording studio at home.
He also formed another rock band, Moondog One, and collaborated with Liam and Beady Eye.
Fatherhood: Oasis Stars’ Family Lives
Noel Gallagher, now a father of three, shares children with Sara MacDonald and from his previous marriage to Meg Mathews.
Liam Gallagher, with four children from various relationships, including Lisa Moorish and Patsy Kensit, has also become a father figure to his 10-year-old daughter, Gemma.
Cancer Fight: Paul Arthurs’ Battle
Amid their diverse journeys, some band members faced adversity. Paul Arthurs, known as Bonehead, bravely fought tonsil cancer.
After announcing his diagnosis and taking a break, he shared the good news that he had successfully beaten the disease, expressing gratitude to his supporters and the medical team at @TheChristieNHS.
Conclusion: Oasis Members’ Varied Paths
As Oasis’ legacy endures, the individual paths of its members reflect a mix of musical achievements, personal challenges, and family milestones.
Despite the band’s tumultuous history, the Gallagher brothers’ ongoing feud, and various career endeavors, Oasis continues to hold a special place in music history.
