Noel Gallagher: 'I Don't See An Oasis Reunion Happening'














Noel Gallagher appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show last night (November 22) and shattered the hearts of many Oasis fans.

When asked by Ross as to what the problem with Oasis is and the reason they have not reformed, Gallagher informed the audience: "I don't see the appeal. If I close my eyes I don't see it happening" before clarifying, "that's not to say that it never will. I've got a lot of things going on."

Noel went on to reveal that his relationship with former bandmate and brother Liam is non-existent and that the pair do not speak: “There’s no problem. We don’t speak to each other so there’s no problem.”

Gallagher recently announced details of his new album Chasing Yesterday, under the name of Noel Gallagher & The High Flying Birds. The album will be released on March 2, 2015. The album will feature a collaboration with Johnny Marr on the track ‘Ballad Of The Mighty I’.

Earlier this week, Noel Gallagher doubted Russell Brand’s plan for a revolution, saying to XFM: "I think his revolutionary ideals might be as short-lived as his acting career! He's a good lad, Russell, and I love him dearly like a boyfriend. I think he should stand in the election, because it's alright saying the words and all, but then you're relying on other people to implement all this stuff you're going on about.”

Noel Gallagher: 'Russell Brand Should Stand In The Next Election'














Russell Brand's plans for revolution have been doubted by Noel Gallagher, who says he thinks the comedian's political career might go the same way as his acting career.

Speaking in a new interview, Gallagher was asked about the aspirations his friend Brand has for leading people into a "no-vote" revolution, to which he replied that he thinks the comedian's "heart is in the right place" and suggest that he should stand in the 2015 general election.

"I think his revolutionary ideals might be as short-lived as his acting career!" Gallagher said, adding: "He's a good lad, Russell, and I love him dearly like a boyfriend. I think he should stand in the election, because it's alright saying the words and all, but then you're relying on other people to implement all this stuff you're going on about."

In the same interview with XFM Gallagher said that he is free to perform at Glastonbury in 2015, if organisers want him.

Dave Grohl recently said that Foo Fighters would headline Glastonbury if Oasis and Prince did it too. While not commenting on the possibility of a reunion with brother Liam, Noel went on to praise Grohl and hint that he has a free weekend in June that coincides with the 2015 event.

Noel Gallagher Doesn't See The Appeal In Reforming Oasis














Noel Gallagher is a guest on The Jonathan Ross Show week’s show, and has been talking about Oasis and his pal Russell Brand.

“He is a very dear friend… He should stand in the election I think, his heart is in the right place but he does waffle on a bit you know...” he said.

He was also quizzed on whether he’ll ever get back with his former bandmates.

“Last time I interviewed you we were talking and I said ‘Would Oasis ever play again?’... You said ‘I’ll get back together with Oasis on the day you go work for the BBC again…’ Jonathan said to Noel.

“Now about three months ago, I did some work for Radio 2 again. They’ve asked me to do some more so… Are you a man of your word?”

Noel responded: “Does that mean I’ve got to reform a band?”

On a reunion with Oasis, Noel added: “I don’t see the appeal, I don’t see it, if I close my eyes, I don’t see it happening, that’s not to say that it never will but I’ve got a lot of things going on at the moment.”

Noel Gallagher On The Oasis For Glastonbury Rumours: "I'm Available That Weekend"














Noel Gallagher has poured fuel on the rumours that a reformed Oasis might play Glastonbury in 2015 in an exclusive interview with XFM's Jon Holmes this morning.

The comments came after Jon played Noel a clip of Dave Grohl calling on Oasis to reform. The Foo Fighters frontman said his band would play the festival - but only if Oasis and Prince did too.

"He's great," said Noel, "What they say about him is true. He is genuinely one of the nicest men in rock.

"We've done some big gigs with them down the year. Great lads, all of them."

When Jon pressed him for an answer on Glastonbury 2015, Noel gave a short but teasing answer.

"I'm available that weekend - it's not up to me though, is it?"

Noel Gallagher Quit Cocaine Because Of Pyramids, Aliens And The Beatles














Noel Gallagher has confessed he stopped taking cocaine in 1998 because he'd grown tired of ''talking about pyramids, aliens and The Beatles''.

Noel Gallagher stopped taking cocaine because he got ''bored'' of talking about aliens.

The 'In The Heat Of The Moment' singer has revealed that although he still smokes cigarettes and enjoys drinking alcohol, he no longer takes the Class A drug because he's ''bored'' of having bizarre conversations.

The 47-year-old rocker admits he used to spend hours ''talking about pyramids, aliens and The Beatles and who shot JFK [US President John F. Kennedy]'' at his nightly parties.

He said: ''I had exhausted every avenue of conversation. I had parties at all of my houses every night. I just assumed that is what you did. That is what is expected of you. That is why it is the greatest business in the world.''

Despite confessing to once taking cocaine in Queen Elizabeth's toilet at Downing Street, the former Oasis star claims he didn't find it difficult to kick the habit back in 1998.

Speaking on an episode of 'The Jonathan Ross Show', which is to air on Saturday (22.11.14), he explained: ''It was easy to give up. I am very disciplined and I just thought one afternoon, 'I am bored now'. And I thought, 'This is against the law.' ''

But Noel - who says he will ''never give up the cigarettes and the booze'' - insists he won't warn his three children off of drugs.

Speaking about his two sons Donovan, seven, and Sonny, four, with wife Sara MacDonald and his 14-year-old daughter Anais from his marriage to Meg Matthews, he added: ''We plan to let them find their own way in life. If they ever get too close to the edge we will pull them back.

''I would have not liked my parents to preach to me about anything about life.''

Audio: Andrew Weatherall's Remix Of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds‘ ‘In The Heat Of The Moment’














If this seems like a strange fit, think again: Weatherall’s only a few degrees of separation away from Noel through his work on Screamadelica, and he’s regularly lent his winning touch to UK guitar bands, from My Bloody Valentine to Starsailor. In typical Weatherall fashion, it’s a patient remix, hypnotically building tension for a good four minutes before letting Noel’s vocal loose. And that ending, with the flanged hi-hats? Yes mate.

Noel Gallagher Reveals He Got Drunk Recording Gogglebox












British rocker Noel Gallagher has revealed he got drunk before filming a fundraising comedy skit because his supermodel co-stars Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell were so late.

The former Oasis star predicted his modelling mates would be late and so he made sure he had plenty of good alcohol to sup while he waited - and he overindulged.

He admits he was so intoxicated when he arrived home after filming, he had no idea what his wife was talking about when she asked how the skit, filmed for last month's (Oct14) U.K. Stand Up To Cancer telethon, went.

Gallagher tells Absolute Radio, "I told the woman (producer), 'I guarantee you, Naomi Campbell will not be here before midnight... You're an idiot... You'll be lucky if Kate gets here before three in the morning!' I got there on time... (and) they both rock up at 10 o'clock, so by that time I'm already drunk. We were supposed to finish filming at 10 o'clock... We got out at quarter to two."

But he insists he had a great time with his pretty pals: "It was one of the best nights."

Noel Gallagher On Why He Doesn't Put "100 Percent" Effort Into His Records Or Live Shows














Noel Gallagher says he doesn't ever put "100 percent" effort into his records or live shows because he has to save some energy back.

Noel Gallagher "didn't put that much effort" into his new album.

The 47-year-old rocker recently completed his album 'Chasing Yesterday' - which comes out next March - but claims he only put about "75 percent" of his total effort into the LP because he got distracted.

He said: "This time I did the record in London, I mean crikey it's difficult to focus and make it. I didn't put that much effort into the album, I can only give it 75 percent at one time.

"People say, 'I gave it 100 percent,', and I'm always only giving it 75 percent. People ask me, 'Why do you say that?' And I say I have to keep a bit for the after show. I can't be leaving it all on stage."

The former Oasis star also revealed he and his wife Sara MacDonald's sons Donovan, seven, and Sonny, four, prefer to listen to U2 rather than his.

Speaking on 'The Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show' on Absolute Radio, the 'In the Heat of the Moment' singer explained: "Donovan and Sonny are massive U2 fans. It's a recent thing ... Donovan is a very good friend of Bono. It's a long story. But when that album came out with all the furore surrounding it, Donovan said, 'Lend me your iPod. Let me run my ears over this album.'

"And he's become a super-fan. Him and his mate Bono are having a bit of a loving across the ocean. It's fun to watch. I actually thought that I would be the one to turn him on to stuff like that but it's like he's bored of me now."

Andy Bell Says Liam Gallagher's Heart Wasn't In Beady Eye Any More














Guitarist Andy Bell, formerly of Oasis and Beady Eye, now of the newly reunited Ride, has opened up about the recent Beady Eye split in a new interview with NME.

Frontman Liam Gallagher announced the group's split on October 24, when he stated that the band were "no longer" and thanked fans for their support.

In this week's issue of NME, on newsstands and available digitally now, Bell said: "[Beady Eye] just sort of ran its course really. Liam had been pretty quiet for a while, and them he just let us know that his heart wasn't really in it any more".

Bell added that the band split on good terms, and the split did not come as much of a surprise. "It's been a long fade, really," he said.
