Tony McCarroll, co-founder of Oasis is recovering from a heart attack. He played drums on their debut album, Definitely Maybe.
The 50-year-old Englishman shared the news from his social accounts, and said, “I’m not quite out of the woods as yet but just want to give a massive, big up to our NHS. We are more than fortunate to have such a service! Thank you!”
McCarroll played a big hand in the rise of a band that was, without question, Britain’s biggest rock act of the ‘90s. He helped form Oasis with his schoolmates Liam Gallagher, Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs, and Paul McGuigan before Liam’s older brother Noel came on board.
His work can be heard on the early hits “Live Forever,” “Cigarettes & Alcohol,” “Rock ‘n’ Roll Star,” and others. McCarroll was with Oasis until 1995.
