Noel Gallagher Could Feature On Coldplay's Next Album
One of Coldplay's roadies has revealed Noel Gallagher could well feature on one of the band's future recordings without even stepping foot in the studio.
Gallagher performed with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin earlier this week at the BRIT Awards. During the rehearsals, Gallagher presented Martin with a guitar loop.
On the Coldplay website the roadie wrote "Noel stamps on a pedal and starts off a loop of glorious noise. Immediately Chris is on his feet and shouting 'What the hell is that?'. Chris has his iPhone out to record it, excitedly proclaiming it the most amazing thing he's ever heard. Noel is laughing as the pedal loops away through the stack. Fast forward to the dressing room on the show day and Chris is handing me the pedal responsible for all the fuss. It turns out that Noel has come in today and motioned Chris over to his dressing room next door with the words "I've got a little present for yer..."
He continued "Chris is holding it with great reverence and excitement. "Can you record what's in here immediately? And then give it Rik? We're going to take it back to the studio and run it through Jonny's rig and mic it up". The pedal is only the size of a block of butter, but I find myself carrying it through the backstage in both hands as though dropping it could send the whole place up in smoke. Where it'll end up, I've no idea, but if it finds its way into a song, Noel could easily be playing on the next record without ever having set foot in the studio. Wonderful madness..."
