"I know a girl called Elsa, she's into Alka-Seltzer" - the inspiration for that famous line from Supersonic was a Rottweiler that belonged to Manchester sound engineer Dave Scott.

Dave was in the studio when Noel Gallagher was writing the song.

Sadly Elsa died some years ago but the Scott family remain proud of their beloved pet's role in Oasis history.

Noel says he wrote Supersonic in ten minutes and it's his favourite Oasis song.

It reached Number 31 in the charts in April 1994.
