Noel Gallagher insists an Oasis reunion is “not on the cards” following the break-up of his brother Liam’s band Beady Eye.
He silenced rumours the Britpop band, which formed in 1991, would get back together calling it a “backwards step”.
The singer-songwriter, 47, who formed his own band Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds five years ago says: “It’s not on the cards. From where I sit now it’s purely a creative thing.
“I really, really enjoy where I am with my music and where I am with my band. I wouldn’t be willing to give that up for anything.”
While Noel says the question is a source of irritation for him he revealed his other pet peeve – being mistaken for his moody baby brother, who’s 42.
“It annoys me about as much as when I’m introduced to people as Liam, which happens on a regular basis,” he said.
“I was at a party the other night and loads of posh people were going, ‘Liam, how are you doing?’ It’s a common occurrence,” he tells Q Magazine.
However unlikely the prospects of the two getting back together, the diehard Manchester City football supporter says there is one thing that would make him reconsider: “I’d rather reform Oasis than wear a Manchester United shirt. I wouldn’t do that, not even if I was mentally disturbed.”
And pigs could fly.
