Noel Gallagher leaves Oasis (again)

Via Rolling Stone's Rock Daily blog: Noel Gallagher quit Oasis before a scheduled gig in France today, leaving the Rock en Seine festivalgoers wanting for an appearance by the veteran British rock group.  Though many in the crowd saw the cancellation announcement as a joke, realization soon set in as time passed and no Gallaghers appeared.

Liam and Noel Gallagher, co-leaders of the band, are famous for their bitter fights, and this isn't the first time Noel has quit.  However, all future Oasis tour dates have been canceled and Rolling Stone reports that this time, it might be for good.  Noel posted his resignation letter on the band's MySpace site:

"It is with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer. Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan."
 Anyone who knows the band knows this has been coming for a long time.  Only time will tell whether the brothers will be able to mend their differences.

It appears Noel finally and officially looked back in anger.
