Rock band Oasis have sacked drummer Alan White, the band's longest-serving member after Noel and Liam Gallagher.
White replaced Tony McCarroll in the band
"Alan White has been asked to leave Oasis by the other band members," the band confirmed on their website.
They said there were no plans to replace White, who joined Oasis after original drummer Tony McCarroll was asked to leave in 1995.
Oasis are currently working with dance act Death In Vegas, and said the move would not affect their recording plans.
It is expected that Noel will play drums in the studio and a session musician will be drafted in for any future live dates.
There have been a number of line-up changes in Oasis' chequered history since their debut single Supersonic in 1994.
The original band was Noel and Liam, Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul McGuigan and Carroll.

Carroll was the first to leave, followed in 1999 by McGuigan and Arthurs a few years later to be replaced by Andy Bell and Gem Archer.
In 1999, Carroll was awarded £500,000 in unpaid royalties but later attempted to sue the solicitors who handled his record contract.
But the case for compensation was dismissed because he had taken too long to file it.
