Here’s a cracker. An excerpt from a piece I shot and edited for Shortlist.com on the last day of August, which was also the last really hot day of the summer: the legendary Noel Gallagher having his picture taken and his mind probed. Mr Gallagher arrived with a bit of a hangover (to put it mildly) and was pretty much grumpily silent for the first 15 minutes or so of the shoot. Uh-oh, we all thought. But then our canny photographer, Paul Stuart, started to talk to him about football and Noel instantly perked up, taking particular delight in dissing Paul’s love of Brighton & Hove Albion FC. After that the witticisms cascaded with the usual Mancunian flair.
Music is ‘AKA… What a Life’ by Noel’s solo project, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
