Onstage Meltdowns


In 1996, one half of Oasis’ infamous Gallagher brothers pulled a stunt that would have his brother “looking back in anger” for a long, long time. Just minutes before the band was scheduled to perform an acoustic set for MTV Unplugged, Liam backed out of the show. Left with no other option, guitarist Noel Gallagher took the stage and sang lead in Liam’s place. As if that weren’t difficult enough, he had to do it under constant heckling from his brother, who had perched himself on a balcony above the band. Liam later claimed he had to cancel due to a sore throat; Noel insists he was just hung over. —Jeff Royer
