Noel Gallagher On Oasis, Led Zeppelin, The Smiths, And The Jam Reforming

Noel Gallagher has told the current issue of Q that he would only reform Oasis for the money and that Michael Eavis has not got enough money for Oasis to reform at Glastonbury.

He said "Nobody has made us an offer. I've been in the same room as Liam, and even then nobody's said, 'Weren't Oasis great? You should reform.' But if I was ever going to do it, it would only be for the money. This isn't me putting it out there, by the way.  Would I do it for charity? No way. We're not that kind of people. For Glastonbury? I don't think Michael Eavis has got enough money. But would we get back together? As long as everybody is still alive and still has their hair, it's always a possibility. But only for the money. Look at The Stone Roses. When you're constantly getting asked if you're going to re-form, you can only keep saying 'no' until you say, 'yes'. I've never spoken to John Squire about this, but it's like John got bullied into saying, 'yes'. Now the Roses have re-formed, no one mentions them any more."

He Added "I think it's ingrained in English psyche - this idea that the glory days, the Empire, are behind us. Led Zeppelin! The Smiths! The Jam. They should all reform! Why? So a load of middle-aged people can stand in the 02 and go, 'they're not as good as they used to be'. It'd be the same with Oasis. 'Yeah, we're not as good as we used to be'".

Q magazine is on sale from Tuesday.
