Then, Noel Gallagher took to the mic and made probably the biggest a-hole comment he has ever made in his career.  Noel said,

 “Has-beens shouldn’t be presenting awards to gonna-bes”.

Hutchence who committed suicide a year later was humiliated and embarrassed with many insiders saying that his incident contributed to his downward spiral.

Before his death, Hutchence did get a slight bit of revenge on Oasis.  On the first single of the 1997 INXS album “Elegantly Wasted” the chorus has a drawn out lyric of:

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Elegantly wasted”.

When Hutchence recorded his background vocals for the song he sang:

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII’mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Better Than Oasis“.

As a huge Oasis fan, I respectfully say Noel was a dick here.

    Noel has since apologised. Hutchence was everything Liam Gallagher wasn't, intelligent, charming, talented, and able to conquer the US…

    Hutchence was about one billion times more talented than Gallagher. And he didn’t look fugly either, quite the contrary in fact.
