Oasis has always owned up to “ripping off” their idols The Beatles when it came to their music and sound. Well this time it looks like the roles have been reversed as Paul McCartney has ripped off Noel Gallagher. On June 4, 2012, McCartney performed at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and he unveiled a special edition “Union Jack” version of his signature Hofner violin bass guitar.
Which of course brings back memories of the mid 90’s and Gallagher’s famous “Union Jack” Epiphone Sheraton Guitar dubbed “Supernova“.
I know it’s not full blown plagiarism on McCartney’s part but I’m pretty sure Gallagher is flattered. Click below to check out the long line of Rock Stars “Rockin” the Union Jack!!!
