Oasis Roughed Up in Germany

Liam Gallagher loses two teeth in brawl, may face charges

December 2, 2002 12:00 AM ET

Volatile British rockers Oasis canceled two German tour dates, one in Munich yesterday and one scheduled for Hamburg today, after a fight in a Munich nightclub early Sunday morning ended with singer Liam Gallagher and drummer Alan White in police custody.

Authorities say Gallagher, who lost two teeth in the melee, may have kicked an officer in the chest, and as a result could face assault charges. He and White were released from custody yesterday after questioning.

Witnesses told Munich police that the incident started after members of the band and its entourage, who were drunk, started pushing each other, one falling onto a table where other club-goers were seated. Liam's brother Noel is not believed to have been involved in the fight.

The band's Web site tells a different story, claiming Oasis "were the victims of an unprovoked attack by a group of youths." There is no word when the band will resume its European tour in support of this year's Heathen Chemistry, next scheduled for Dusseldorf December 4th.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
