He"s not too keen on hip-hop in general, either. All this in response to Jay-Z headlining Glasto. Does he have a point?

Didn`t read the article but I heard Glasto was getting Jay Z as headliner...

Glasto`s gone too commercial, all about Beniccasim & Exit festival for me this year.

hip hop/rap just doesnt fit the festival. its not that kind of place.
take for example when 50cent played Reading festival in 2004. he got bottled from the outset and only stayed and did 6songs so he could get payed. not really what festivals are about

Oasis may have a few hits but alot of their songs are wimpy and Gallagher sounds like a Tosser. So forget him, Jay-Z makes good songs. This isn`t 50 Cent we are talking about here. Jay-Z is the Man and Oasis is a fruit band plain and simple.

To say Oasis is in the same league as bands like Hawkwind, Badfinger, Led Zepplin, Motorhead, The Stones(pre 1976) and the Beatles does such a disservice to British music. Before when Americans weren`t ripping off black musicians to sound good, they stole the British sound, all the way until...Oasis. By the way...Stevie Ray Vaughn is god,Jimi Hendrix is Jesus and Noel Gallagher couldn`t even wipe their flop sweat.

"Gone are the days when a guy would turn up with a microphone and grab himself while wandering around mumbling."

Right next to that quote they have a picture of Jay-Z grabbing himself, and probably mumbling.

Splendid.

@ Daegog

Thanks for revealing to the world just how far the depths of stupidity can reach. Rap, hip hop, whatever you call it, it sucks pretty badly. It`s noise, with some incomprehensible talking mixed in.

Its simple, there isn`t music more popular than hip-hop world wide. Rock sales are going down since it seems to have gotten away from the led zepplins and gone to emo/ high school rock. While it might hurt them now in the long run they will benefit from this.


"I wouldn`t go either..cant spell crap without rap :P"
You cant spell nonconsensual with sensual.

Oasis is like, the antithesis of one hit wonder. Besides, this is pretty much expected from Noel Gallagher, no? He`s pretty much a bad ass...

Dude? Who said Oasis was a one hit wonder?

Just because they didn`t chart well in the US after their first TWO albums doesn`t make them one-hit wonders.

Daegog, jay-z is just a popstar. And don`t call a band that has been around probably longer than Jay-Z, a bunch of wannabe beatles. Have you even heard Oasis?
All in all, i`m just sick and tired of hearing hip hop all over the place. I dont dislike the genre but i dont see why it has to monopolize every other kind of music out there nowadays...
That and music is getting commercial.
Although i would be really pissed if I were Noel and found out that Miley Cyrus was playing at Glasto. Now that would be terrifying!

oasis trying to slam jay-z is like a candle saying the sun is just kinda warm.

oasis isnt on his level, never will be. I dont even like Jay-Z and this is blatantly obvious.

Realistically, he is trying to get some press. Easier to gripe in the media then to make a hit song.

A billionare music mogul vs a buncha wannabe beatles?

Gimme a break.

Yep. I had all intention of going this year but decided against it when I heard Jay-Z was headlining. That wasn`t a choice against the genre but against the artist himself. I`d have been there like a shot if it was someone who in my mind was worthwhile like public enemy etc.

Poor choice on the organisers part. Poor choice.

Glasto is an arts festival, every type of music possible should be played there.

And what`s with all this `Rock or Hiphop` thing? can`t people like both? like me?

I cant stand Noel or Oasis so normally I wouldnt give a crap about what he has to say, but in this instance I have to say I know several people who have never missed Glastonbury so far, but this year 2 of them have opted not to go. I dont acctually know if it`s to do with Jay-Z or not, but I have to agree, it`s certainly a change from the standard line up and a lot of people might not like that.

What a legend Noel. Glastonbury is not a hip-hop festival, so why try to make it one? Drawing younger audiences doesn`t mean drawing ten year olds that like crap music.

most people don`t even know what hip-hop is. It`s like rock, you have heavy metal, emo, pop, punk and yet it`s all rock. Jay-Z is considerably commercial. Try some De La Soul (old skool), Vikter Dupliax (broken beat), or old portis head (experimental)....it`s all hip-hop to me btu totally different things.
