Get Out More....................................Gig News
Former Oasis guitarist Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs who played on all the band's classic albums returns to sweaty local gig roots with a show on Saturday at The Public in West Brom.
Arthurs' band Rain attracted first Liam Gallagher then Noel and he played rhytm on their first four albums - up to an including "Standing On The Shoulder of Giants".
Using the age old excuse, he quit in 1999 "to spend more time with his family" - although in Arthurs' case it was possibly true, as he had two pre-school children.
Whatever the cause, his latest band have the support of Creation Records supremo and Oasis mentor Alan McGee, who reckons The Vortex create “pure anthems for party people”.
Tickets are available for £7 in advance and £9 on the door, and are available from www.thepublic.com or via The Public Box Office.
