About Tony McCarroll
Tony McCarroll, the original Oasis drummer launches his Q & A – Live Podcast tour about the making of Definitely Maybe in the Sugar Club in 2019. In this candid and hilarious live Q & A styled podcast event, Tony tells one of the most in-depth rock ‘n’ roll stories of modern times. He reveals the truth about the early years before the band was even formed; he tells of the drinking and drug consumption. Plus, he talks of his much-publicised rift with Noel Gallagher. Tony’s recollections include stories involving David Beckham, Prince, Eric Cantona and John McEnroe.
In 1991, five wannabe Mancunian musicians came together and cracked the spark that ignited the explosion which became Oasis. The band went from obscurity to a global phenomenon in the space of a year, achieving world-wide recognition and selling over 70 million records. What started out as five young lads with a common dream of becoming rock stars eventually disintegrated into in-fighting, clashes of egos, and financial disputes. In 1995, following the release of Definitely Maybe – the fastest-selling debut of all time – things came to a head and drummer Tony McCarroll left the band.
