Oasis star Bonehead is just waiting for the call to reform the band

Former Oasis guitarist Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs has revealed he wouldn’t hesitate to say yes if he was asked to be part of a band reunion.
The rocker says he would be there “like a shot” if the original line-up reformed.
Preparing for the premiere of the new Oasis documentary Supersonic in his native Manchester, England on Sunday (02Oct16), which he will attend with former bandmate Liam Gallagher, Bonehead tells NME.com he’d love to get back onstage with his old mates, who shook the music world in the mid-to-late 1990s.
“There’s never a day goes by when I’m not asked by someone about a reunion,” he said, “but nothing has been said to me about that. If I was asked? Then absolutely, like a shot.”
British bookmakers recently slashed odds that the band would reform in 2017, following the release of Supersonic and the reissue of their 1997 album Be Here Now.
The new film charts the rise of Oasis from 1993 to 1996, culminating with their gigs at Knebworth Park in England, where they performed for 250,000 people.
“It was a pretty incredible film to watch,” Bonehead told the Manchester Evening News. “There was stuff on there that even the band members are thinking, ‘How did they get that?’ It’s a brilliant, brilliant film, really portrays it all.
“I think it really brought it back to me. At the time everything was happening so quick and we were reaching those heights, you really don’t get a day to sit back and think, ‘Where are we going?’ When we were doing it then there was no YouTube, Facebook or Twitter, so to sit and back and watch those early years, growing up to walking out with the band at Knebworth, it was a pretty incredible thing.”
Oasis split in 2009 after guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher walked out on a European tour after a fight with his brother, frontman Liam. The siblings have been estranged ever since.
