Noel and Liam Gallagher of Oasis, on the ‘Be Here Now’ tour, in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1997.

Oasis. Brit Pop. It was a great time. Oasis were the men of the moment, and you could never have too many Oasis, Liam, and Noel Gallagher, photographs.

First time I photographed them was at T In The Park. There were in one of the smaller tents, 4th on the bill, not even headlining. But already they had a huge audience. Someone told me to shoot Oasis, they’ll be big. So I went along to the tent, and the place was crazy busy. Hot, steamy, packed. And Oasis came on and rocked the place, and I shot it on transparency film. Those were the days of transparencies. Nervous exposures at gigs.

I went on to photograph them another few times, they were never dull. You were always assured a picture. I remember at one gig the PR person warning us photographers not to put our lenses on the edge of the stage as Liam will kick them off. Never a dull moment with the Gallaghers.
