Tabloid Alert: Liam Gallagher Is Doing A Diploma In Horticulture














The former Oasis star has bought a set of DVDs to help him study at home for a diploma in horticulture.

And it seems the rocker, 42, isn’t even taking the course to learn how to grow something less legal in his back garden.

We’re told: “Liam will be taught how to grow his own fruit and vegetables.

“The learning chapters will also cover pest control, developing vegetable plots and maintaining lawns.

“He’s really interested in working on his garden, and loves the idea of having a proper qualification.

“Liam’s bought these DVDs to teach himself as much as he can about horticulture.”

And it seems that Liam may even become a farmer one day.

We’re told the star, whose family hail from County Mayo, has considered buying a farm in Ireland.

“Liam loves going back over to Ireland to visit his family.

“He’s even spoken about one day buying a farm over there,” our source said.

“He loves the idea of farming, growing crops and maintaining land.

“But he doesn’t have the space to do all that in London.”

The former Beady Eye singer, who is a regular at the Chelsea Flower Show, has also asked a local landscape gardener near his home in Hampstead to source 50 orchids for him.

Our source continues: “Liam loves his plants and has green fingers.

“He especially likes orchids and has asked for a selection of shapes, sizes and colours to display around his house.

“He likes bringing the outdoors inside.

“He has bouquets of flowers everywhere around his gaff.

"It’s quite girly but Liam doesn’t care.

Noel Gallagher On His Secret New Project, New Album And More














Notes taken by two lucky people who went to Noel Gallagher's interview and acoustic performance with John Wilson for BBC Radio 4's Mastertapes series.

I think the most potentially exciting thing was Noel let slip about a separate project he's doing he quickly back tracked as obviously shouldn't have said something.

He said he's got ten songs backing track recorded but only two lines of lyrics as he's struggling as he's not emotionally attached to the project, (he thinks they are amazing as instrumentals). John Wilson asked if was a soundtrack and he said no it will be an album.

Also the 'AKA.. What A Life' lyric came from when Noel was sleepwalking. Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno asked if he was still sleepwalking, Noel said yes and Serge said... What A Life!

John asked him what his plan was for the future after 'Chasing Yesterday' and he said his plan was not to take a long break.

He's got loads of songs left over from Oasis era.

He said most of the songs 'on the internet' that have yet to be released will probably never get recorded as he constantly writing newer songs.

'AKA... What A Life' and 'If I Had A Gun' would've been Oasis songs

The solo in 'Riverman' is very good and performed by Paul Stacey and very reminiscent of David Crosby.

John Wilson picked out 'The Right Stuff' as his stand out track (it was unprompted and he just came out with his like for the track).

Thanks to jaq515

'The Right Stuff' is left over from the Amorphous Androgynous album, perhaps why it's more 'out there' as the interviewer described it.

Apparently a cracking solo on 'Riverman'.

Noel's written an entire album of instrumentals that he hasn't yet been able to put words to for a 'side project.' The interviewer asked if it was for a movie soundtrack to which he said it wasn't and it will be an album if he can put write the lyrics for it. Was all rather odd and intriguing.

Noel Gallagher Says Kids Only Recognise Me From Gogglebox














Noel Gallagher has revealed that kids still stop him on the street for his photograph - even though some have no idea who he is.

Talking to the XFM Breakfast Show with Tim Cocker, the legend said he'd been out for a curry with Mani of Primal Scream and the Stone Roses when they noticed a gaggle of kids outside the window, staring in.

"A crowd of kids had gathered," said Noel, "watching us have a curry, about 11 or 12 kids."

Encouraged by the owner of the restaurant, Noel went outside to pose for a photo with the excited kids.

"I was kind of stood there and this girl's going 'Oh my God! Oh my God!' And I heard her whisper to her mate, "Who is it?"

It turned out that Noel's face was familiar to the girl, but not from his record-breaking stint with Oasis or even his more recent solo success. She recognised him from his recent reality TV stint.

Noel revealed: "Her mate said 'He's off Gogglebox'. And she went: 'Are you off Gogglebox?'"

Ever the diplomat, a surprised Noel kept this cool. "I went 'amongst other things, yes'".

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.''
