Noel Gallagher On The Plan For A Oasis Musical

In an exclusive chat with Jon Holmes, Noel said an American had pitched an Oasis "rags to riches" musical to him - and he found the idea hilarious.

Noel Gallagher has admitted that he might have blown the chance to make an Oasis musical a reality...because he found it so hilarious.

Noel was talking as he unveiled brilliant new song The Ballad Of The Mighty I, which features Johnny Marr, on the XFM Breakfast Show.

"Somebody did talk to me once about a musical, recently, an American dude," Noel told Jon. "And after I'd stopped laughing, I realised that he'd walked off."

Gallagher said the pitch was for "the rags to riches story of Oasis" to be put onstage. "After I'd belly-laughed and spewed up a drink, he wasn't there any more, so I don't think it'll be happening any time soon!"

Sting's multi-million dollar musical The Last Ship closed on Broadway after less than three months - something Noel didn't seem to have a lot of sympathy for.

"Some people have no taste, I find that staggering that people would not go and see a musical about a Geordie fella who doesn't speak in a Geordie accent who used to be in a band with a jazz drummer whose dad was in the CIA about him growing up in a shipyard.

"The mind boggles."
