Rock band from Burnage, Manchester, formed in 1991.
Formed out of the ashes of a band called The Rain (consisting of Paul McGuigan, Paul Arthurs, Tony McCarroll and Chris Hutton on vocals) who started in 1990. Chris was sacked and Liam Gallagher took over on vocals. His brother Noel Gallagher (former guitar roadie for Inspiral Carpets' Clint Boon) then joined as songwriter and additional guitarist.
In 1999, two of the founding members (Guigsy and Bonehead) left the group and Noel played their parts on the fourth album. Two new musicians were recruited - Gem Archer and Andy Bell (2) - initially for touring duties, but became full-time and were part of the songwriting process on the following albums.
On August 28, 2009, Noel announced that he was leaving the band after an altercation with Liam. The remaining members continue performing as Beady Eye, while Noel formed Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
