High Flying Birds man has, unsurprisingly, opted for one of his songs
The guitarist, who plays again at Coachella this weekend, revealed to NME that the 1994 track is the one that changed everything for him.
Speaking in a video which you can see by scrolling up to the top of the page and clicking, Gallagher responding to the question, “What was the song that changed your life?” by simply answering “When I wrote ‘Live Forever’.”
Asked the same question, Two Door Cinema Club‘s Alex Trimble picked Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit, which he revealed was the reason he picked up a guitar, Katy B picked Skream‘s ‘Midnight Request Line’, while Wretch 32 joined Noel in picking his own song, ‘Traktor’.
Arctic Monkeys, Enter Shikari and Graham Coxon are among the artists who’ve revealed the records that changed their life in this week’s NME.
