Former Oasis guitarist Bonehead has chosen a winner after his Twitter giveaway of a piece from wood from the legendary Haçienda dancefloor.
Yesterday, Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs took to Twitter to announce that one lucky follower would win the small piece of music history from the hallowed and legendary nightclub.
Now, he has selected the lucky fan – and demanded a video of them dancing with it on Christmas Day.
Dan White then replied to voice his delight and gratitude – declaring that he would ‘treasure it forever’:
The Haçienda was opened by Tony Wilson and Factory Records in 1982, hosting gigs by the likes of New Order, Madonna, The Smiths and many more – but is most famous for being a seminal part in the creation of the ’90s rave scene and launching the ‘Madchester’ scene. The club closed in 1997 before being demolished to make way for apartments in 2002.
As well as admitting that he’d ‘be there like a shot’ in the chances of Oasis reforming, Bonehead also recently took part in a lengthy string of banter in a Twitter exchange with Liam Gallagher – after being accused of ‘wearing women’s underwear while listening to old Roger Whittaker outtakes’.
