The Rain > Oasis: The Rain was a band formed by UK youngsters Paul McGuigan, Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs, Tony McCarroll and Chris Hutton who eventually brought Liam Gallagher in as a vocalist. Liam suggested the band change the name to Oasis, since he liked the word on a tour poster that hung in his room. Liam’s brother, Noel Gallagher, then a roadie for the Inspiral Carpets, brought some of his ideas in and one of the most harmonious band relationships in history began.
