It was a good week for Oasis fans at Rolling Stone. Frontman Liam Gallagher revealed that he’s open to reuniting with his brother Noel to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band’s hit album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory in 2015, though he notes “there’s got to be two-way respect” between he and Noel, who haven’t talked since breaking up the band in 2009. Also, the Beady Eye rocker spoke about his award-winning fashion line, Pretty Green.
We also chatted with Ben Folds about reuniting with the Ben Folds Five, talked to Shirley Manson about Garbage‘s forthcoming album, caught up with T.I. about his post-prison plans and learned about how the French electronic duo Justice made their hot new record Audio, Visual, Disco.
Rolling Stone also reviewed hot concerts by Kelly Clarkson, Florence and the Machine, Death Cab For Cutie, Odd Future and Little Dragon. We analyzed this week’s pop charts, looked back on this week in rock history and, as always, reviewed all the week’s biggest releases.
