OASIS have reportedly been rehearsing with RINGO STARR’s son on drums.

The group, who are without a drummer following the departure of Alan White earlier this year, are said to be trying out Zak Starkey behind the kit.

According to The Sun, Noel and Liam, guitarist Gem Archer and Starkey were set to support Stereophonics when they play a charity gig in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust at the London Royal Albert Hall later this month (March 30). Not true, say the band's management.

A statement from the band reads: "Contrary to reports in the UK press today Oasis will not be participating in this year's Teenage Cancer Trust concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

"They have played the event in the past but although big supporters of the TCT could not take part this year due to studio commitments. They hope the event is as successful as it has been in previous years."

Oasis are set to go back into their own studio shortly to continue work on the follow-up to ’Heathen Chemistry’. Death In Vegas, who produced early sessions for the record, will not be producing.
