Noel Gallagher Says Oasis' 'Don't Look Back In Anger' Is More Important Than He Will Ever Be


Watch (here) as the Oasis legend reflects on his biggest anthem with Radio X's John Kennedy.

Noel Gallagher has discussed the impact of Don't Look Back In Anger, which he says has become something like a "hymn".

When asked about the importance of the 1995 Oasis track, he told Radio X's John Kennedy: "Honestly as the years have gone by, that song is more important than I'll ever be."

"There’s footage on the internet now of people singing it in Manchester with candles and all that," he said, referring to numerous performances made by members of the public following this week's terror attack in the city.

"It is incredible to think that a few generations have attached some kind of importance to that song."

The 49-year-old rocker added: "That song now has become a hymn to something or other".

Talking about performing (What's the Story) Morning Glory? single live,  Gallagher mused: "You sometimes think; 'I probably only need to introduce it and play the first chord. I could probably walk of then and nobody would notice.'

"You know 'cause there's just people with their eyes shut, crying and - yeah. It's an amazing thing. It's something I never take for granted either".

Asked whether penning the 1995 track ever made him feel humbled, he replied: "It makes me feel - is it proud the word I'm looking for?

"I don't ever sit there and think I wrote that. I think it came from somewhere else. If I hadn't written it, Bono would have wrote it".

He concluded: "If they fall out of the sky and land on your lap, then lucky you."

You can hear What A Life! Noel At 50 on Radio X on Sunday 28 May at 8pm.

Then, on Bank Holiday Monday, 29 May - Noel’s actual birthday - Radio X will be playing YOUR favourite Noel and Oasis songs from 10am.

Radio X is available on 104.9 FM in London, 97.7 FM in Manchester, on Digital Radio across the country, online or via our apps.

Noel Gallagher Tells His Kids To Stay Away From Music


Noel Gallagher has told his kids they will never be as good as him. The Oasis legend has three children, including part-time model Anais.

But he’s warned them to stay away from the music industry.

Asked if his two sons will ask to follow his lead, Noel said: “I’d say, ‘Right, pass me that guitar, and I’ll show the benchmark here, son’.

“And I’d play Don’t Look Back in Anger, and then I’d put the guitar down, to almost certainly a deathly silence, and I’d say, ‘Yeah! f***ing dream on, okay! Now, go and put the kettle on!’”

They aren’t allowed tattoos either: “None of my kids would be getting them. I’ve never had any piercings, I just found the whole thing a bit odd, to be honest.”

As ever he’s despondent about the future of indie music.

He told Andy Bush on Absolute Radio: “All is not what it seems on records, these days.

“People don’t really play guitars any more, they wear them.

“There are a lot of moustaches in indie music now, which is completely unforgiveable. When girls start having moustaches in the indie music business, I’m leaving the country.”

Noel also says Manchester will take “quite a while to heal” after Monday’s terrorist attack.

Liam Gallagher Announces Charity Gig For Manchester Terror Attack Victims


Proceeds will go to the Manchester Evening News fund raising appeal for victims.

Liam Gallagher has announced a charity gig in the wake of the Manchester terror attack.

The former Oasis frontman will play the O2 Ritz on Thursday, May 30, with all proceeds going to the Manchester Evening News fund raising appeal for victims.

Twenty two people were killed and dozens were injured after suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated an explosive at Ariana Grande’s Manchester arena concert on Monday night.

Gallagher said he decided to donate all of the proceeds in a bid to “help pick people up”.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News he said: “I just knew I had to. I’m not in it for the money. The gig was going to happen anyway and we all have to do what we can.

“I want to try and help pick people up. People like me, doing what we do, it’s our duty to give people a good time.”

He continued: “It’s outrageous. Just so sad. What can you do? It’s just f****** out of order. There are kids and people dying all over the world. And for what?

“I’d gone to bed early - about 10pm - then got up in the morning to a text from my other brother saying what had gone on and I put the TV on. It’s just unbelievable.”

Gallagher, who hails from the city, was among several stars who paid tribute in the wake of the tragedy.

He tweeted: “In total shock and absolutely devastated about what's gone down in MANCHESTER sending Love and Light to all the family's involved LG x.”

The Manchester date will kick-off Gallagher's mini tour which will see him perform at London’s Electric Ballroom in Brixton, Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and Glasgow Barrowlands.

Gallagher teased a “massive announcement” on Thursday night, telling fans: “The wait is nearly over Brothers n Sisters massive announcement first thing tomorrow morning sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite LG x.”

The news comes days after he announced details about his first solo single, Wall Of Glass.

His debut solo album, which saw him team up with Adele's producer, Greg Kurstin, will be called, As You Were and is slated for release in October.

Tickets go on sale at 9am today.

Is Noel Gallagher's New Album Finished?


Yesterday Reverend & The Makers‏ posted this on the official Twitter page.







































Speaking to the NME in April 2016, Noel said that for his third solo record he’ll be mixing things up. “I am doing something different this time, to amuse myself – I am writing in the studio for the first time. As a rule I’ve not allowed myself to go in with any completed songs, so I am writing in there, it’s happening all around me during the day.”

“Usually I’ll go in, play a song, record an acoustic version of it and then I’ll think of something and we’ll head toward it. Everything we do is a forward motion toward that point. When you’re writing in the studio you don’t know where you’re going, so the flavour of it all can constantly shift. It’s a bit chaotic but the end results are great so far.”

May 2016, producer David Holmes told Gigwise .“People are going to be surprised. I think people love Noel and they’re desperate for him to make a really big, bold, uptempo beast of a record – a lot of Noel’s music is quite mid-tempo. This one is quite fun.”

Noel spoke about the as yet untitled album again in an interview in June 2016, saying that it’s shaping up to be a “rock’n’roll record”. “Can I point out that it’s not electronic? Everyone thinks that it’s an electronic record, and it isn’t,” He told Exclaim. “Well, not yet, anyway. The first six tracks aren’t electronic. For some reason they all associate David with electronic music. To be honest, I was hoping we might do something electronic, but it’s turning out to be a rock’n’roll record, which is fine with me".

During an appearance on his pal Russell Brand’s radio show last month Noel let slip that the album is being scheduled for a November release. He confirmed that there will be a track called ‘Instrumental Number Three’.

Noel Gallagher On Oasis' 'Wonderwall', Earrings, Tattoos, Leather Trousers And More


Noel Gallagher has said he does not "particularly like" Oasis song Wonderwall despite its enduring popularity and global appeal.

Gallagher penned the song, which was released in 1995 and has gone on to be remembered as a defining song of the 1990s and is considered one of the now-defunct rock band's best tracks.

The musician told Absolute Radio's Andy Bush that he always thinks the greatest song he has ever written is "the next one".

He added: "Wonderwall has become a worldwide hit, and I will get stopped all over the world, in any city you care to name, and people will sing Wonderwall.

"I don't particularly like that song - I think Cigarettes And Alcohol is a far superior song."

Gallagher said he struggles to understand why the group's second album, (What's The Story) Morning Glory? - on which Wonderwall appears - was more successful than their first record, Definitely Maybe.

"And for the life of me I still can't work out why Morning Glory would have sold 20-odd million, and Definitely Maybe only, like, five or six," he said.

Wonderwall, on which his brother and former Oasis co-star Liam sang lead vocals, has been named the greatest British song in various different radio station polls over the years.

It reached number one in several countries, including Australia, Canada and Spain, although it only peaked at number two in the UK charts, and spawned several cover versions.

Ahead of turning 50 next week, Gallagher said he is not currently going through a midlife crisis because he is "not that kind of person" and is refraining from the stereotypical signs of such a moment.

He said: "Not as yet. No earrings, no tattoos, no leather trousers.

"I'm not that kind of person, I've never owned a licence, like a driver's licence. Maybe I'd be buying a quarter million-pound motor this morning, if I had a licence and could be bothered learning to drive, or even a motorbike.

"I've never dyed my hair."

The High Flying Birds frontman said there are "no rock stars any more" in the charts, and that he thinks the music industry has become too much of a business.

"I have sat down and thought, if the rate of your share price depends on people like Bobby Gillespie, Liam and Richard Ashcroft, wouldn't you rather it rest on the reputation of Chris Martin and Ed Sheeran, d'you know what I mean?" he said.

"So, the people in the bands, the outlaws, people who came from council estates, have been marginalised now by the music business, because it's become more of a business.

"Chris is a very good friend of mine, but he is a very nice boy."

The full interview with Noel Gallagher will air on Absolute Radio at 8pm on Monday May 29.

Manchester Crowd Ends Emotional Silence With Oasis' 'Don't Look Back In Anger'


‘Don’t look back in anger’ - that was the message in St Ann’s Square as thousands of mourners paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester Arena attack .

A minute of silence was held at 11am among a sea of flowers laid by Mancunians and friends from around the world following Monday night’s horror, which claimed the lives of 22 people.

As the 60 seconds came to end, the crowd burst into a round of applause followed by a rendition of Oasis’ ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’.

Men, women and children sang their hearts out, many with tears streaming down their faces.

Carmel McLaughlin, from Old Trafford, said Manchester was grieving ‘as a family.’

“This is collective bereavement,” she told the M.E.N.

“We’re one big family in Manchester. It feels like we have lost members of our own family.

“That’s why we’re all here today. It’s amazing to see that so many people care.”

Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham, and other city council representatives laid flowers at the monument.

Meanwhile a police helicopter could be heard hovering above the city as GMP and counter terrorism police carry out a massive operation into Monday night’s attack.

Liam Gallagher On His New Album, Brother, Life And More


Sat in the Library Room of the Union Club on Greek Street, Liam Gallagher — a lunchtime double espresso down, in a black cagoule, black jeans and purple suede shoes — is showing me the alarm screen on his iPhone. ‘Look at that bad boy,’ he says, holding it in front of my eyes. It reads ‘05:00’, and underneath, ‘ALARM, WAKE UP.’

Liam Gallagher On Adele, Ed Sheeran And Harry Styles


The ever-humble Liam Gallagher says his new solo album is going to right all the wrongs caused by pop giants Adele and Ed Sheeran.

The former Oasis frontman is finishing up work on As You Were, his first-ever solo album and his return to music following his split with Beady Eye back in October 2014.

Liam is his usual swaggering self, promoting the record in an ES Magazine, in which he modestly describes himself as the cure for all of rock music's current ills.

"As far as I'm concerned, whether this album's a success or not, some c**t has to counteract the bullshit. 'And I'm that f**king man," he insisted. "Whether it's Adele or Ed Sheeran — I'm not arsed about them — but half of these bands that call themselves guitar bands, they're in that mob too. They're just running amok.

"These c***s are just getting away with murder: you can't tell a guitar band from a pop band these days. No one's cranking it up and having a bit of aggro.

"They're all going to the same parties, they're all f**king hanging out, they're all drinking from the same cup, they're all eating at the same f**king restaurants, and, dare I say it, they all look the same, and dress the same. Someone needs to counteract that. And I'm here to do that."

A dislike of Ed Sheeran could well be a bonding moment for Liam and his brother, with Noel Gallagher having previously had a go at the 'Thinking Out Loud' singer too. Ah, brotherly bonding!

Liam isn't down on all popstars — it seems he actually has some affection for Harry Styles now that the 23-year-old is breaking away from the Simon Cowell-created One Direction.

"I wouldn't buy [his single 'Sign of the Times'], but it's interesting. Imagine what it's like for him," Liam said. "He's got a big f**king weight on his shoulders, and he's only f**king young.

"He's probably thinking this One Direction thing ain't for me. People change, so if he wants to do a bit of that, good luck to him."

Maybe our Liam is turning into a softy in his advanced years, after all! His full interview appears in this week's issue of ES Magazine, out on Thursday (May 25, 2017).

Liam Gallagher Compares Noel To Robbie Williams


Former Oasis frontman says he doesn't regret any comments he's made about his brother

Liam Gallagher has compared brother Noel to Robbie Williams in a new interview.

There has been bad blood between the two Oasis siblings for some time, with Liam recently comparing Noel to Hitler and calling him a ‘little toad’. Liam has also said that Noel is the one thing preventing an Oasis reunion from happening.

Speaking recently to Evening Standard‘s ES magazine, Gallagher was asked whether he regrets any of the comments about Noel. He replied: “No. Not at fucking all. I think he’s had it easy off me. It’s only sticks and stones, they won’t break his bones. Wait till I bump into the cunt. Everything I say is the fucking truth. I’ve not even dug that deep yet.”

Liam went on to add: “I don’t know what world he lives in, and I wouldn’t want to live in it, believe you me, because it seems very bland, naff and contrived and just… What? He’s like the new Robbie Williams or something. It’s fucking weird.”

Liam is expected to release his eagerly-anticipated debut solo album at some point this year. His album will be titled ‘As You Were’ and its first single will be called ‘Not For Sale’.

He told ES of his current plans: “The main thing is getting a record done, getting back touring and doing what I do: singing and moving people, rather than sitting at home doing nothing, spouting off on Twitter.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Liam revealed that he’s worked with Adele’s producer Greg Kurstin on his album.

Gallagher explained why: “Ideally, you want to do it yourself. But I can’t write those fucking big songs. I’m limited. My verses are up there, but I just can’t do that next bit.”

Video: Noel Gallagher On The Manchester Terrorist Attack


Noel Gallagher has spoken to Radio X about his thoughts on the Manchester terrorist attack.

Speaking to John Kennedy as part of an interview about his career to be aired in full this Sunday at 8pm, Gallagher claimed the news had rendered him “speechless”.

22 people - many of them children - had been killed following a concert by US singer Ariana Grande at Manchester Arena on Monday night (22 May).

Noel explained: “I put on the radio [that morning] and of course you hear what’s happened and you know… it takes a while.

“Having played that arena and all that and stood in that foyer, and being from Manchester… It dawns on you that it’s aimed at young music fans.

“I’m saying that there are no words but there ARE words. But unfortunately, you can’t broadcast those words.

Noel, who hails from the Burnage area of Greater Manchester, went on: “But I suppose Manchester Arena will open again and, yeah, you have to keep going. I mean I don’t know what Ariana Grande is gonna do. I couldn’t imagine that…

Kennedy then asked if Noel felt sympathy for Ariana Grande, the 23-year-old musician who attracts a great many children and teenage fans.

Noel replied: “I don’t know what I would feel or how I would react. You just don’t know.

“I’ve got a teenage daughter, and you know, she may well have been there. But bar a couple of friends of friends who were in hospital and two very close shaves, all the people that I know didn’t get involved in it or weren’t caught up in it.

“But you know, I think this particular atrocity will take quite a while to heal.”

Noel joins a long list of Manchester artists to pay tribute to the city, with his brother Liam Gallagher, The Smiths' Johnny Marr and Courteeners' Liam Fray all sharing their heartfelt condolences.

Noel was talking to Radio X as part of an interview celebrating his 50th Birthday, which will feature a special show broadcast on the Bank Holiday weekend.

What A Life! Noel At 50, which will take a look back at the life and career of Gallagher, with reminiscences about his work with Oasis and his solo albums with the High Flying Birds, will air on Sunday at 8pm on Radio X.

Liam Gallagher Feared He Was A “Has-Been”


Liam Gallagher feared he was a “has-been” and considered moving to Spain to escape London, the singer admitted today.

The Mancunian star and former Oasis frontman, 44, told of the pressure he faced in recent years dealing with battles over his divorce and child maintenance as well as the break-up of his band Beady Eye.

Speaking before the Manchester bombing, he told ES magazine he began “drinking too much” while living in Hampstead: “I’d open the door and get mithered to death straight away. People going, ‘Oasis, Oasis, Oasis’ in your face, and it’s like you’re in a bad trip.

Skepta Responds To Praise From Liam Gallagher


Skepta has responded to praise to Liam Gallagher, after the former Oasis frontman spoke out for the grime star. Watch our video interview with Skepta above.

NME spoke to the grime hero at the Ivor Novello Awards in London, where he won ‘Songwriter Of The Year’. It has emerged that Gallagher is also a fan, after he tweeted: “Man like Skepta keeping it real. Got to stand for something.”

Responding to the praise, Skepta said: “I feel like the Earth is a re-print of a re-print of a print of a re-print. There are people who take on different objectives and missions in life. When you grow older, there’s a a void – and right now I’m filling a space where a lot of old rock, grime, hip-hop, punk artists left a vacant space. Everything has gone about the internet, everything has gone about the likes, everything has gone about social networking. I still have that…I can’t even put my finger on it, but I still have it.

“I like that these places I’m taking of the people that I respect and these people before me…Of course they’re respecting – they’re in touch. Liam’s in touch, bro. You can see. Not everybody really knows what’s happening. It’s a presence, it’s apparent, I’m here. You can see it in there eyes, you can see it in Bowie’s eyes when he takes a photo, rest in peace. There are so many of them.”

He added: “We get it, and when we see people who get it, we know that they get it as well. I’m happy that I represent that. Thanks to my mum and dad for giving me the right tools of life to get to this point.”

Noel Gallagher Is Having A Cocaine Themed 50th Birthday Bash


He's had plenty of wild times thanks to his time in Oasis and being one of the Primrose Hill set originals.

But, it would seem that Noel Gallagher hasn't lost his lust for life as his 50th birthday looms, as the former Oasis rocker is hosting a Narcos inspired birthday bash.

Revealing the theme on her Instagram account, the 49-year-old High Flying Birds frontman's wife Sara MacDonald shared an Instagram story with her followers that revealed the theme - showing Noel in a mock-up of the show's poster.

Showcasing the invite to her husband's half-century celebration, the glamorous PR guru revealed that Noel's quite the fan of the show - which in its two series has recounted the true-life tale of Pablo Escobar and the US agents who hunted him down.

Featuring the rocker stood in a pose that mimics the show's own promotional images, Noel is snapped in a cloud of smoke with white powder flying around him.

Titled "NG'S 50th", the card also features the show's tagline, "There's no business like blow business," at the top.

Waggling the card back and forth, Noel's image disappears and is replaced with that of Wagner Moura's Pablo Escobar.
