More wibbling rivalry from Oasis brothers

In the most shocking news of the day, Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has criticised his frontman brother Liam.

The elder Gallagher was unimpressed after his sibling told fans to stop clapping halfway through the song 'The Shock Of The Lighting' at their recent concert in Coventry's Ricoh Stadium on July 7.

He told BBC Newsbeat: "In the middle of 'The Shock Of The Lightning', 50,000 people have got their hands in the air and he starts shouting at them to stop clapping.

"I was thinking, 'That's nice – you pay £70 quid for a ticket to be told what to do by the singer. 'You! Stop enjoying yourself - no clapping in between these songs'."

An arguement about clapping. Remember when they used to get drunk and kick lumps out of each other? When did it all get so tame?
