"SOME might say Oasis are the best British band since The Beatles. Noel and Liam certainly wouldn’t argue.
And we suspect millions of Sun readers would make that a “definitely” rather than a “maybe”.
So, we’re giving YOU, the readers, a chance to interview the band.
SFTW’s Oasis frenzy celebrates the release of their first best-of album Stop The Clocks and the screening of their first “on the road” movie Lord Don’t Slow Me Down.
So what are you waiting for? Get those questions in by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Oasis Competition, Something For The Weekend, The Sun, 1 Virginia St, London E98 1SN.
You’ll have to be quick – closing date is next Tuesday.
All you have to do is submit ONE searching question for the brash and brilliant rockers and we’ll ask them the most original and best.
Winning entrants will win entry to exclusive fan-only screenings of the movie.
Oasis have kindly given us SIX PAIRS of tickets to each of the screenings in London, Glasgow and Manchester at the end of November. Dates and venues will be announced nearer the time.
Stop The Clocks (out November 20) is 18 tracks of mercurial brilliance over two CDs – all killer, no filler. Truly a Champagne Supernova album.
It was 12 years ago that the boys from the light blue side of Manchester first burst on to the scene with their era-defining debut Definitely Maybe. And just like that masterpiece, Stop The Clocks kicks off with the euphoric Oasis mission statement Rock ’N’ Roll Star.
All the greats are included like Cigarettes & Alcohol, Wonderwall, Live Forever, Morning Glory and Don’t Look Back In Anger.
There’s the magnificent Acquiesce, the best Oasis B-side and live favourite, also released as lead track on the Stop The Clocks EP (out November 13).
And there’s a couple of standouts from last year’s stunning comeback album Don’t Believe The Truth in the shape of Lyla and The Importance Of Being Idle.
The Oasis documentary Lord Don’t Slow Me Down is directed by Baillie Walsh and drawn from a year’s filming with the band on their mammoth Don’t Believe The Truth world tour 2005/6.
It follows one of the all-time great rock ’n’ roll bands – behind the scenes and in front of the fans across the globe. With unique access, Lord Don’t Slow Me Down is the ultimate Oasis documentary and a must-see for fans."

I ended up entering this competition back when I first posted this two weeks ago. My question for Oasis was...
"Your greatest hits album is named after your most famous unreleased track, which was then not included on the album. Many fans have been highly anticipating this song since it was first mentioned by you in interviews back in late 2002. Can we expect that the song "Stop the Clocks" will be released in the near future or will it never be released?"
Well yesterday The Sun informed me that I was one of the winning entrants.

Noel, to his credit, has an amazing ability to pussyfoot around actually answering a question. I bet he gives an answer without really giving an answer. Something like, "we were going to, but we didnt, and now we dont know." Congrats on being selected though.
I also had a reply saying for consideration which screening would I want to go to. I replied and said that as I lived in Australia I couldn't make it! Haven't heard back, don't know if they will ask my question either.
