NME reports that during an interview on BBC Radio 2 last night, Noel Gallagher expressed regret that Oasis broke up. The band parted ways in 2009 and Gallagher has said there’s only about one percent chance they ever get back together.
He said: “Leaving Oasis – that was a horrible night [in Paris, 2009]. I knew that it was going to be a decision that would follow me around – there’s still not a day where I don’t read something about us getting back together – so I knew what I was getting myself into. [It was the right thing to do], definitely. What Oasis had in its future was to do bigger tours and generate more money, which is great. I wasn’t planning on going solo, but it was such a mess that I was happier off [doing that]. I wish – this is all in hindsight – that we hadn’t broken up. That we all agreed we’d all do different things, and then one day we’d all get back together – but it all got vicious, and I wish it had been handled differently. But I don’t have too many regrets.”
He also spoke about his relationship with Liam Gallagher, which is strained. He mentioned that the two won’t be seeing each other at Christmas. He added: “It’s difficult for people to understand that to be in a working relationship for 20 years with someone you’re so close with is really difficult. And there’s a whole mess that’s gone on around it. But I’ve no doubt that, one day, it’ll be all OK again.“
