Noel Gallagher Attacked


Oasis front man Noel Gallagher was treated in hospital after a man ran onto the stage and attacked him while he and his brother Liam were performing at the annual Virgin Festival here in Toronto.  As you'll see in the footage below, Noel Gallagher "fell heavily onto his monitor speakers," and may have fractured his rib and sustained ligament damage.

This kind of thing scares me.  I always think about John Lennon, Dimebag Darrell and Monica Seles.  The attacker appears to come from behind the stage and may have been a roadie or member of the crew.

It was during one of my favourite Oasis songs, too.
