No Looking Back In Anger For Noel As He Soaks Up Life After Oasis

Noel Gallagher seems to be revelling in his decision to quit Oasis and is enjoying a new life in the sun away from brother Liam.

Noel, 42, was spotted in Sardinia enjoying the sunshine with his long-term girlfriend Sara Macdonald and his son Donovan, 2.

He looked chilled and happy as he relaxed in the Italian sun - a far cry from the in-band rowing he said drove a wedge between him and Liam, 36.

Over in Italy's Lake Como, his younger brother was also snapped with wife Nicole Appleton soaking up the rays.

But while the brothers seem to have at least chosen the same country to holiday in, there's little else they appear to be able to agree on.

Noel shocked the music world last weekend by announcing he was walking out of Oasis, the band he formed with his brother Liam 18 years ago.

"The details are not important and of too great a number to list," he said in a statement, posted on Saturday.

I feel you have the right to know that the level of verbal and violent intimidation towards me, my family, friends and comrades has become intolerable.

"And the lack of support and understanding from my management and bandmates has left me with no other option than to get me cape and seek pastures new."

Noel announced his departure from Oasis after getting into a fight with Liam just minutes before they were due to play in Paris.

Liam is reported to have smashed a guitar and shouted at Noel: "You're no brother of mine."

Now remaining band members Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock are deliberating whether there's any future left for Oasis.

An insider told The Daily Mirror: "They saw how Liam treated Noel, and don't know what will happen if he does the same to them. They have their doubts it can survive without Noel."

Liam has stated in the past that he and brother Noel "don't really have a relationship" and only spoke to each other when they're on stage.
