Zak Starkey's Work with:
Oasis 2007

""|  summary  |  releases  |  live  |

Some Background:

For the genesis of Zak's involvement with the band Oasis, see the Zak with Oasis 2004 page. He was their drummer for 2005's "Don't Believe The Truth", and the world tour that ran from May of 2005 and continued through the end of March 2006 to promote it.

2007 Activity

Oasis, or at least most of, had spent about 6 weeks earlier in the year (around Aug 6th) at Abbey Road Studios followed by a 6 week break while Noel spent time with his family after the birth of his son. The band began another round of recording sessions at Abbey Road Studios Nov 5th, where according to Noel, "we'll probably work through a couple of months there, have Christmas off, then go and mix it and see where we're at." They are expected to move to LA in early 2008 for the mixing process, and the release date would possibly be set for August 2008.

The Brit Awards Feb 14th 2007

In Dec of 2006 it was announced that Oasis would be given the Outstanding Contribution To Music award at the 2007 BRIT Awards. Initial announcements claim the band will be their in person to pick up the award and perform live. The awards were broadcast live Feb 14th from Earls Court, London.

In yet another twist of their Fab legend aspirations, It was reported Feb 2nd that Ringo Starr, Zak's dad, would be presenting the award. And what is all this hype BS touting this as the first meeting of the parties involved?? The so-called journo's across the internet are all picking up the ERRONEOUS line about the band having never met the Starkey senior and are spewing it over and over and over again. But I know I have somewhere an interview were Noel describes meeting the ringed-one back stage at one of the 2005 gigs, and mentions being given one of Richard's white "Peace & Love" wristbands and how he was all 'old-hippy like'. When I find it, I'll post it. [Meanwhile if you can narrow my search, please drop me a line!].

 So, the whole Ringo thing was nothing but total hype! According to Ringo's official website as well as in a reply by his publisist to a fansite, Ringo was never set to do the presenting in the first place!

Anyway, The band accepted their award and then performed live: Cigarettes & Alcahol, Meaning of Soul, Morning Glory, Don't Look Back in Anger, Rock and Roll Star
