Early years

Paul Benjamin Arthurs was born in Manchester’s Saint Mary’s Hospital to Irish Catholic immigrants. In the neighbouring town of Prestwich, he attended St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Grammar School.

When he was eight years old, his parents insisted on him getting exceedingly short haircuts, earning him the moniker “Bonehead.”

“Throughout my life, only my mother and father called me Paul,” Arthurs explained. Arthurs dropped out of school in 1981 and went to work as a plasterer. Pleasure and Pain, his first band, formed in 1984. Around this time, he began dating Kate, who would become his future wife.

He formed the Rain with his friends Paul “Guigsy” McGuigan, Tony McCarroll, and Chris Hutton in the late 1980s while working as a building contractor.


Oasis: When Hutton was fired, Liam Gallagher was brought in to replace him, and he proposed that the band change their name to Oasis. Gallagher and Arthurs collaborated on a song as co-writers.

However, the band remained unsuccessful until Gallagher persuaded his brother Noel, who had recently returned from working as a roadie with Inspiral Carpets all over the world, to join the band. Noel brought a selection of tunes with him that would go on to make the band famous.

“Live Forever” and “All Around the World” were the first tunes Noel Gallagher played to Arthurs. When Noel played “Champagne Supernova” to the band on their tour bus, Arthurs broke down and cried. On the Definitely Maybe DVD, he stated that “Columbia” was his favorite Oasis song to perform live because it simply has three chords and a hypnotic beat.

When Oasis performed “Whatever” on Top of the Pops, they mimed and Arthurs took the place of one of the string section’s cellists. He began conducting with the bow at the end of the song.

Arthurs is a multi-instrumentalist who is credited as playing piano and mellotron on Morning Glory (What’s the Story). She can be seen playing the piano in the music video for “Don’t Look Back in Anger,” as well as in photos in the Definitely Maybe album booklet.

Arthurs was scheduled to deliver lead vocals on the vinyl extra track Bonehead’s Bank Holiday from (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? (named after him). Noel Gallagher sang lead vocals instead of Liam Gallagher because they got drunk on the day of recording the song. Both Arthurs and Liam provide backing vocals on the track.

Gem Archer took Arthurs’ place, and she was referred to as a “professional” after that. “It’s hardly Paul McCartney leaving The Beatles,” Noel Gallagher stated, though he also added, “We’ve got to respect their (Bonehead and Guigs’) decision as family guys.” Gallagher has stated on multiple occasions that he harbors no ill will against the former rhythm guitarist and admires his efforts.

Arthurs now resides in Manchester, where he has built a recording studio beneath his home and established Moondog One (called after Johnny and the Moondogs, one of the Beatles’ previous names before their success), which features Mike Joyce and Andy Rourke of The Smiths.
