Oasis is a band from England, they formed in 1991 in Manchester. The group was formed from another band called The Rain. The original band line-up consisted of Liam Gallagher on vocals, Paul Arthurs on guitar, Paul McGuigan on the bass and Tony McCarroll on drums. Noel Gallagher joined the band a little after and became the lead guitarist while Arthur took over rhythm guitar. In 1993, the band was discovered by the co-founder of Creation Records and signed to the label. The following year, the band released their debut album Definitely Maybe. The record was number one in the UK and was critically acclaimed. Tony McCarroll was replaced by Alan White before the release of the band’s second album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? in 1995. The band’s second album included hits such as “Wonderwall”, “Some Might Say” and “Champagne Supernova”. The record topped the UK charts and came in 4th place in the Billboard 200. In 1997, the band released Be Here Now which became the fastest-selling album in the UK and shot to number two on the Billboard 200 charts. Following the album, Arthurs and McGuigan left the band while the rest of the band worked on their following record. They were later replaced by Gem Archer and Andy Bell. In 2000, Oasis released Standing on the Shoulder of Giants via their own label Big Brother. The album was influenced by psychedelic rock and was a UK number one. That same year, the band released their first live record entitled Familiar to Millions which was recorded at Wembley Stadium. In 2002 the band released Heathen Chemistry (first album to feature Archer on guitar and Bell on bass). This album’s overall sound returned to a more basic rock and it held writing contributions from all members for the first time. In 2004, White was replaced by Zak Starkey on the drums and a year later, the band released Don't Believe the Truth. Two years later their band released a compilation album called Stop the Clocks and in 2008, the band released their last album Dig Out Your Soul which topped the UK charts and came to the 5th place in the US billboard 200. Starkey then left the band and was replaced by Chris Sharrock during their last tour as a band. They broke up in 2009 after an altercation between the Gallagher brothers. Noel Gallagher went his separate way and worked on his project Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. While the rest of the band worked on a project called Beady Eye (broke up in 2014).
