Wonderwall: Summer 1997; 20 years ago.

1997 was an exciting summer in terms of Oasis. Firstly just before the summer holidays, I bought tickets for myself and Dad to see Oasis. I spent about 5 hours redailing before finally getting the tickets.

Then I was able to anticipate the release of Be Here Now; I always knew I would not be able to buy it on the day of release as we were going on holiday to Spain the day before it’s release. I was able, by hanging on the balcony of our villa; get a sneak preview as the boy from next door was playing it.

During  the holiday Princess Diana died.

I bought cassette of Be Here Now   on the ferry coming back. I  was finally able to listen to my own copy on the long  car journey , navigating through the traffic as people headed to London for Princess Diane’s funeral. The casssette was not played the whole way back; we also listened to the radio to catch up on the news that we had missed from the week. Whilst we were still travelling at midnight the news of Mother Teresa’s death came through.
