Friday Night: Snow Patrol & High Flying Birds at Bayou Music Center
Throughout the show, he and this fan had a running dialogue. At one point during the set, Gallagher even said, "No, it's not my best song. This is my best song," before breaking into "AKA... What a Life." The banter reached a peak when the British songwriter told the fan, point blank, that he had no intention of playing the song.
"I played it last night, and it was brilliant," he said. "Unfortunately for you, I'm not going to play it tonight. Do you know why? Because I don't give a fuck."
Glad to see that Noel hasn't lost his spark.
Personal Bias: Came for HFB and left with a newfound appreciation for Snow Patrol.
Overheard In the Crowd: "These guys suck!" "Then why'd you buy a ticket?"
Random Notebook Dump: I have this vivid memory of sitting in a Japanese restaurant/karaoke bar, watching some poor, drunk man's failed attempt to sing "Chasing Cars." The words were drowned out by the sounds of his sobbing. No matter how hard I try, I can't shake it.
