Unbelievably, 2015 marked the 20 year anniversary of the ‘Blur vs Oasis’ feud, ignited by the decision of both bands to release a chart single on the same date. It was a feud so bitter it even made the evening news! It wasn’t just the fans who were involved in the almighty falling out though, as Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn got busy slinging insults at each other too.
But now that Gallagher has his Highflying Birds, and Albarn has his newly awarded OBE to treasure, the rock stars seem to be mellowing with age, and have even made it up with each other – with a little help from Noel’s wife Sara. In an interview with the Sunday Times, Gallagher recalled how Sara approached Albarn in a nightclub to compliment him on his Gorillaz project, and Gallagher suggested that they go grab a beer together. And the rest, as they say, is history.
