BRITS 2007 Red Carpet: Interview with Noel Gallagher of Oasis

This is the first in a series of red carpet interviews I did for the BRIT Awards back in February. As I posted before, lots of celebrities simply bypassed all international outlets (except for MTV, natch). Thank you to all the stars who actually stopped and chatted with me. One of those stars was Noel Gallagher, who mistook me for some fool with a camera (well, that part's true). I grabbed him by the arm with almost inappropriate force to get him to talk to me. He could have clobbered me (ok, I'd like to have seen him try, if only for the free publicity it would have given me), but the end result was one of the cooler interviews of the night.

P.S.: I promise I wasn't drunk when I filmed this. It's tough to play both amateur cameraman and hack journalist at the same time.

More interviews to come…

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
