Following a fight with his brother on August 28, 2009 he announced that he would be leaving Oasis.
Almost ten years on from the split fans of the Britpop band have held out hope that Liam and Noel Gallagher will one day put their differences to the side and take to the stage again.
But shutting down such wishful thinkers, Noel, 47, has said preserving the memories of his time in the group make it easy for him not to ever want to take part in a reunion.
He said: 'I don’t block anything out. I remember it which is why I don’t want to do it again.'
Formed in 1991, Oasis' first LP Definitely Maybe at the time became the fastest selling debut album in the UK and set the wheels in motion for a number of hits including Don't Look Back In Anger.
However as the band grew more popular, tension between the two brother began to mount and the pair often clashed while on the road.
In 2009 after an altercation with Liam which resulted in one of his guitars being destroyed Noel quit.
In a statement, he wrote in a statement: 'It is with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight.'
He added: 'People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.'
On Friday Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds played a secret gig at the Rivoli Ballroom in London for Absolute Radio and ahead of the show Noel spoke about how much he's changed since Oasis.
Admitting that he's grown up a lot, he explained: 'So all the things that we should have avoided doing in Oasis.
I can avoid those now and kind of keep all the good bits'.
The father-of-three continued: 'Obviously that band [Oasis] was colossal but the attitude is still the same. My attitude towards everything is still the same anyway.'
You can catch the full radio broadcast of Noel Gallagher's gig and interview on Sunday April 12 from 6pm on Absolute Radio.
