Oasis 2005

""|  summary  |  releases  |  live  |

Some Background:

For the genesis of Zak's involvement with the band Oasis, see the Zak with Oasis 2004 page.

For the most part, the 6th Oasis album was finished by the very end of 2004, and tour dates had begun to surface for 2005. There was initial confusion among some fans about who would be the drummer on the tour - as Terry Kirkbride's site had listed him to play "percussion" with Oasis for some UK dates. Then in Feb, Noel confirmed in various radio interviews that Zak was indeed the drummer for the tour.

Be sure to check the dedicated Don't Believe The Truth page for all the background, recording, release and chart avtivity!

The Band picked up two Q Awards in Oct 2005
Best Album: Don't Believe The Truth, and
Peoples Choice Award.
