Noel Gallagher was left starstruck on Sunday (27Nov11) after meeting Sir Paul McCartney before his show in Italy.
The former Oasis rocker spent the day watching a soccer game between his beloved team Manchester City and Liverpool, before heading to the Mediolanum Forum venue in Milan to watch MCCartney perform - and he was in awe when he spoke to his idol backstage.
In a post on his official website, Gallagher writes, "The match? Well, it ended in a draw. A fair result in the end. We should have won it, but on the other hand we could have lost it.
"From there we went straight to some arena or other to see Paul MCCartney. Somewhat predictably he was mega... as always. He's got All the tunes, innit!!!
"Actually managed to get to say hello to him before the show!! What a treat. I'm like a small boy when s**t like that happens. And he's a true gentleman. The f**kin' daddy!"
