Noel Gallagher's stab terror

Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher thought he had been stabbed when he was attacked on stage in Canada earlier this month

Noel Gallagher thought he had been stabbed after being attacked on stage.

The Oasis rocker - who is currently nursing broken ribs after being pushed over by a stage invader at Canada's V Festival earlier this month - admits he initially thought the incident was far more serious.

He said: "Because it had been raining and there were puddles around I thought I'd been stabbed. For a split second I s**t it."

The guitarist's brother, Oasis singer Liam, also believed his brother had been more severely injured - and vowed a repeat incident will never be allowed to happen.

He said: "I thought Noel had been stabbed. It was f***ing dark, but it could have been a lot worse, that's the way I look at it. The guy's going to get dealt with.

"It won't be happening again - I can assure you of that."

Noel also said he was worried his attacker, 47-year-old Daniel Sullivan - who has been charged over the incident - would be come famous because of his actions.

He added: "Loads of Oasis fans put his name on the website and did wanted posters which just adds to the infamy."
