3. Tony McCarroll and Oasis
Forget about the "did Liam walk or didn't he" drama, the original Oasis bust up was drummer Tony McCarroll (second from right). In 1995, the tub-thumper was "ousted" from the group, with Noel saying : "I like Tony as a geezer but he wouldn't have been able to drum the new songs". McCarroll took the Gallaghers to court claiming unpaid royalties, and was later awarded half a million for his trouble. He had to pay £200k costs, so it wasn't as generous as it may first seem.
