Don’t Look Back in Anger
For the cover of Don’t Look Back in Anger Noel had decided to pay homage to an incident which had happened at Abbey Road Studios in 1968. It was inspired by Ringo Starr walking out on the Beatles because he felt that he was not wanted. He was eventually persuaded to come back into the band and on his return George Martin, the Beatles’ producer, had decided to deck his entire drum kit out in flowers as a statement of love and gratitude. Noel thought this sentiment would make an interesting idea for a cover and so suggested we had the band’s equipment covered in thousands of red, white, and blue flowers, the colours of the Union Jack.
