The NME (quoting The Sun today) reports that Zak Starkey has quit Oasis after a falling out with Noel Gallagher. The newspaper quotes a source close to the band as saying: “There have been arguments with Noel Gallagher and general disagreements.”
Starkey unofficially joined Oasis in 2004, replacing drummer Alan White and is credited on two albums, Don’t Believe the Truth and an upcoming studio album set for release this year.
Starkey’s membership in Oasis remained unofficial supposedly because of prior commitments to The Who and to leave open the possibility of working with Johnny Marr’s The Healers again. Seems old Zak likes to keep his options open, which isn’t such a bad idea if your main paycheck is signed by a Gallagher brother.
