It all started last weekend at Reading Festival when, during a Foo Fighters performance, Dave Grohl drummer Taylor Hawkins announced to the audience that he wanted to start a petition to get Oasis back together.
The Foo’s drummer had covered his bass drum in cut out faces of Liam and Noel Gallagher. Meanwhile, Grohl assured the crowd that they’re trying to get Oasis back together.
“We’re trying. Let’s sign a petition. Everyone here, okay?” Hawkins told the crowd.
“How many people wanna see Oasis f*cking play a show?” said Grohl.
So then, during his performance with Noel Gallagher and the High Flying Birds in San Diego, Noel brought it up.
“Any Oasis fans in the house?” asked Noel. “Is anyone going to sign the petition Dave Grohl wants, to get us back together?”
He quickly turns the enthusiastic cheers into laughs. “I’d like to start a petition to get the Foo Fighters to split up… If that would be at all possible.”
“These next two are for f*cking Uncle Dave,” he says before carrying on with the set.
