What is really annoying is the many "this is where the Oasis sound started" etc, stories that keep cropping up. Utter nonsense. The Oasis sound started when Noel got involved and took over.
Also ridiculous are the claims that The Rain where about to become a huge band, rather than just another nothing Manchester band. Does Hutton really believe Oasis or The Rain would have been succesful with him as the singer?
To me, it seems this book was only written so the authors could have several digs at the Gallagher brothers. At the end of the day, Hutton has not, and never has had, anything to do with Oasis. This book smacks of "I was the fifth Beatle 'cos I once touched Lennons guitar" syndrome.

Written by Chris Hutton, a founding member of Oasis forerunner, the Rain, DON'T LOOK BACK IN ANGER challenges many of the myths that have sprung up about the band's beginnings. Hutton reveals how football was not quite the all-encompassing passion that most band members claim and that tales of a rabble-rousing youth were frequently exaggerated.
The gigantic impact of the Stone Roses, Madchester and Spike Island prompted Hutton to form the Rain with Guigsy, Bonehead and Tony McCarroll. Hutton recounts the early days of the band and shows how this period was vital to the development of the Oasis sound. And Chris tells how his friends unceremoniously dropped him from the band to make way for Liam and Noel Gallagher and describes what it was like to be left behind, watching the others change as they progressed from anonymity to stardom.
