Noel Thomas David Gallagher (born May 29, 1967 in Manchester, England) is a guitarist and vocalist. Active since 1991, he is best known as the frontman and songwriter of the Manchester rock band Oasis. Raised with younger brother Liam Gallagher in Burnage, Manchester, Gallagher began to teach himself the guitar at the age of thirteen during a period of probation. After a series of odd jobs in construction, Gallagher joined local Manchester band Inspiral Carpets as a roadie in 1988. In 1991, he became a member of brother Liam's band Oasis, quickly asserting his dominance over the group.

Within a few years, with Oasis' early success due to their debut album, 1994's Definitely Maybe, Gallagher assumed center stage of the Britpop movement, during which Oasis continued to enjoy much critical and commercial success. This stage of the band's career was epitomized by the band's release of 1995's UK #1 album (What's the Story) Morning Glory? and a rivalry with fellow Britpop band Blur. With Britpop's end in 1997 and Oasis' loss of founding members and popularity, Gallagher and the band have assumed a lower profile, but Gallagher has become noted for his public conflicts with Liam, which have resulted in a few brief departures from Oasis. Currently, he is working with Oasis on the band's seventh studio album.
