The former member of the Manchester band shared his reaction to the first ever time he heard the famous Oasis track.

Bonehead has revealed that he cried the first time Noel Gallagher played him Champagne Supernova, and it still makes him cry to this day.

The former Oasis rocker - whose real name is Paul Arthurs - took part in one of Tim Burgess' Listening Parties, where he's revisiting classic British albums with the help of the artist involved in making them.

Last Friday (4 April) saw them take on the classic Oasis album (What's The Story) Morning Glory? with Bonehead joining along on Twitter for commentary.

Talking about the final track of the album, Bonehead revealed: "Champagne Supernova. What a song. Liam sings it live now with just his voice and piano and it’s majestic. Noel first played us this on the back lounge of the tour bus in the USA on acoustic. I cried. Again."
