There are few siblings in the world of music who are more entertaining off stage than Oasis’ Liam and Noel Gallagher. The two former bandmates have never shied away from sharing their opinions on whatever they’re asked about in interviews, which in more recent years has been about their family relationship. The two brothers famously dislike each other, but a recent string of tweets by Liam has led fans to believe that fences are being mended and there could be a reunion of the popular Brit-pop band in the works.
Unfortunately, Noel doesn’t have any interest in getting back together with his old bandmates. Less than a week after Liam and Oasis drummer Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs reunited on stage in the band’s hometown of Manchester, U.K., Noel revealed in a new interview that he has no plans on getting the band back together.
“I’m only ever forced to think about Oasis when it’s brought up in an interview, or when we did that documentary because I guess there was a nostalgic thing going on,” Noel responded when asked if the world of Oasis ever enters his mind these days. “I don’t need any more glory, I don’t need to be a stadium rocker anymore, I did it when I was in my 20s and 30s and 40s and I was good at it. I don’t particularly want to be a stadium rocker when I’m 50, I think it’s undignified.”
When asked what he thinks about how financially successful the GnR Not in This Lifetime Tour has been, Noel responded, “Well, if Axl Rose or Slash or any of those guys were as good as me, they wouldn’t f**kin’ be in Guns N’ Roses.”
Well there you have it folks, the holiday hopes and dreams of a 2018 Oasis reunion crushed in the span of two paragraphs. The good news is that Noel still has plenty of performing fuel left in him with his solo career. He released his third studio album under the High Flying Birds banner back on Nov. 24 with Who Built the Moon? He’ll be heading out on a world tour in just a few months starting with a concert at Detroit's Cathedral Theatre at the Masonic Temple on Feb. 9.
