It speaks for itself when another fan such as Ulrich claims his love for Oasis. Very much, and just as much as movie-star Bradley Cooper too — who has also said he loves Oasis.
Ulrich recently spoke to NME about the band.
“Oasis has been the soundtrack to my life for the last 20 years on this wonderful planet. I have stories and pictures in my mind that go along with everything, from the first time I heard particular songs and read certain articles, to hearing about the band’s shenanigans and festivities.”
And he adds he once manned the lights for an Oasis gig back in 1994:
“They didn’t have a crew guy to run the light board, and I was the only one in the building that knew the songs…”
Previously in mid-Summer this year, Ulrich also revealed Gallagher helped the drummer kick his cocaine addiction.
Speaking to The Mirror, he said “I loved the social elements of cocaine. I loved the danger of it. (But) about 10 years ago, I read an interview with Noel Gallagher, in which he said, ‘I just stopped doing cocaine’. I thought that was really cool. It felt so fresh, so honest, so pure - I love that side of him. I’ve never had an addictive personality, so I woke up one day and said, ‘Enough’.”
Oasis' reissued and remastered (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? is available now.
