We are given so much insight into why the constantly battling Noel and Liam are the people they are today, with the use of childhood tales and revelations that had never been previously known before. Partly told by the lads' long-suffering mother Peggy, the woman who held the family together, we read what it was like to live with such an abusive father, and how this undeniably affected them in a way that I don't think any of us who haven't lived through it, can ever really understand. There are also chapters about how the band was formed, how they got the record contract, and memories of those first gigs.
'Brothers from Childhood to Oasis: The Real Story' offers up the truth behind the headlines, and is told in an entertaining, often harrowing, and frequently witty and sarcastic way. There are two sections of ultra rare back-and-white pictures, including many cute and priceless pictures of the boys from their childhood right up to snaps taken in the then present 1996 day. Towards the very end of the book, there is also a discography, listing the impressive chart history Oasis already had in the UK, Ireland and USA, just with two studio albums, and a string of hit singles.
This hardback is a must-read for serious Oasis fans, and will be of interest also to music lovers in general, and aspiring musicians.
