Oasis’ Noel Gallagher had become tired of performing “Wonderwall” until he heard Ryan Adams wonderful version of the group’s most well known tune.
“I went to see Ryan Adams in Manchester… So he’s playing away and he just does ‘Wonderwall’ right in the middle of the set. The fucking place went silent. It was so beautiful. I was just like, ‘Fucking Jesus Christ what a fucking song!’ Afterwards, I told him, ‘You can have that song, man, because we could never quite get it right.’
Adams’ version, was first performed in 2001, and later released in 2004 on the E.P. Love is Hell. Gallagher subsequently changed the arrangement and played it a la Ryan Adams. Check it out….
