In a recent column in the U.K.’s the Guardian, Metallica founding member and drummer, Lars Ulrich, wrote about the “huge impact” Oasis has had on him throughout the years.

“Oasis has been the soundtrack to my life for the last 20 years on this wonderful planet,” Ulrich says. “Doing the lights for them at a club show in the fall of ’94 at some God forsaken hole in the wall in Nowheresville, New Jersey, was a distinct highlight of my early encounters. They didn’t have a crew guy to run the light board, and I was the only one in the building that knew the songs ... go figure how things have changed.”

In the same column, the Maccabees’ Felix White shares his own sentiments toward Oasis. “They had such an effect on me that before I’d even heard one, I could tell anybody for 100% fact, with my hand on my heart, that synthesizers were rubbish ... and guitars were the best,” he explains. “And Oasis were the best at playing them.”
