Oasis to Receive Beatles Honor

Oasis will realise a long-held dream at the 2007 Brit Awards later this month, receiving their Outstanding Contribution award from Ringo Starr himself.

The Beatles drummer has been invited to present the band their career prize after Johnny Depp, who had originally been asked to present the award, was forced to cancel his appearance over scheduling conflicts.

Oasis are famously big supporters of The Beatles, owing them much musically in their songwriting style, and will be realising a dream receiving the Brit Award from one of their heroes.

A source tells The Sun, “It is the ultimate accolade for the lads to be honored by their heroes. It is something they have dreamed of ever since they were starting out in their Manchester bedrooms.”
