Noel Gallagher famously used an Epiphone Les Paul to record the lion's share of Definitely Maybe, the instant classic debut LP released by Oasis in 1994.
The same year, Johnny Marr had given him a genuine Gibson - a late sixties model apparently also owned by Pete Townshend - and Noel wrote Slide Away immediately on picking it up. "That song wrote itself, I swear it did," he claimed, to which Marr responded, "Well, if that's the case, then I reckon he owes me a couple of million in royalties."
That particular guitar was smashed in an onstage altercation with a fan, but over the last decade Noel has used Tom Murphy aged Custom Shop Les Pauls for the rockier moments in the Oasis live set.
