HE’S the Prime Minister of modern rock ’n’ roll, the mastermind behind the most brilliant tracks of a generation and one of the most cuttingly observant minds in music, so I’m thrilled to reveal Noel Gallagher is back doing what he does best. The guitar legend will today unveil a brilliant return with new single We’re On Our Way Now. It is a trademark melancholy guitar anthem that couldn’t be more unmistakably Noel if it was donning round shades and a Union Jack guitar while slagging off brother Liam . Dripping in swagger, the verses darkly recount the passing of a friend without the opportunity to properly say goodbye, before a more upbeat bridge and chorus reflect more positively on the premise of being at peace. He sings: “Remember what might have been, had I walked you home and said I’d see you later?

It started by winning his first Bathurst 1000 in October last year. He then flew straight home to New Zealand, jumped in an AP4-spec Mitsubishi Mirage and won the Battle of Jacks Ridge rally.

He hadn't raced a Toyota Racing Series car in well over a decade and is several feet taller than most single-seater jockeys. His fire extinguisher went off right before the race and he had to start from pitlane, but he won the race. In February he went back to Bathurst and won both heats of the Supercars season-opening Mount Panorama 500. Exactly a fortnight before the next round at Sandown, he took a tumble off his mountain bike and broke his collarbone and three ribs. Immediate … [Read more...] about How van Gisbergen’s Supercars win streak stacks up in the history books
