Oasis' Live ForeverLive Forever is a song by the English rock band Oasis. The song was written by Noel Gallagher before he joined the band and was released as the third single from their debut album‚ Definitely Maybe‚ in 1994. The song is instantly recognizable from the beginning‚ with the beat of Tony McCarroll launching the song into Definitely Maybe. It quickly became one of the band's biggest hits‚ achieving sales of more than seven million copies. 'Live Forever' was released 24 years ago‚ but for many‚ the song was a landmark in their teenage years. Like The Residents' 'Commercial Album‚' the song captures the spirit of youth and freedom‚ and in just 58 seconds it races through the elements of songs with a capital S. The chorus‚ in particular‚ is memorable‚ as it's one of the most defining moments of the band's career. Live Forever was written by Noel Gallagher‚ and the group became one of the biggest bands of the 1990s. Its popularity was so high that the group toured the world and achieved commercial and critical success. It was also one of the group's most popular songs‚ and a part of the music video was shot in New York Central Park. Interestingly‚ the CD single cover features a picture of John Lennon's childhood home‚ 251 Menlove Avenue. Lennon's wife‚ Yoko Ono‚ later donated the home to the National Trust.
Tom Parker's widowOn April 11‚ the funeral of Tom Parker was held at a church in southeast London.

In a touching tribute‚ Parker's widow and other members of the star's family and friends carried a framed photo of her late husband. The coffin sported the words 'daddy' and 'Tom'.

She also shared a moving message from her heart to the singer's widow. Her husband had two children‚ Aurelia Rose and Bodhi Rose‚ whom he married in 2018.
