Noel Gallagher: 'If There Is an Oasis Reunion, I Won't Be Part of It'

Guitarist - surprise! - rubbishes reunion claims in new interview.

Ultimate Guitar

Noel Gallagher has rubbished recent claims that Oasis will be getting back together to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of their debut album. Speaking to Rolling Stone (via NME), the guitarist definitively stated that if there is an Oasis reunion, then he won’t be involved: "We are split up. You've heard that, haven't you? You must’ve heard ... Yeah, so, ergo, band splits up, band is no more. There is no band. So, no, I won't be getting involved, anyway. If there is a reunion, I won't be in it." In spite of Gallagher’s comments, Alan McGee, who signed the band to Creation Records in 1993, is confident that the band will return at some point in the future: "Yeah, I think they'll come back at some point. I don't think it's going to be next year or anything. If they get back together I'm sure it would be for a mega bucks tour." Who to believe?

    I swear this article is repeated weekly.
    as is a number of others (ie slayer and avenged sevenfold etc), no one really learns anything new from UG
    I don't come here for news. I come to read the comments. I'm sure we all read the updates from theprp or blabbermouth first because UG only updates once a day m-f.
    Well, people ask him more often than weekly.
    eh no dear, or you clearly don't know the media darling Noel Gallagher...
    you could hot have sounded douchier in that comment ^
    are you talking to me? 16 year old? if you want to hear one sounding douchier, listen to your daily Noely... oh but first stop sucking his short dick ^
    hahahaha do you really think they ASK him? I bet you're one of his new blinded fankids.
    Commenting on it, or even viewing it is why...These get tonnes of views and therefore more ad revenue, ergo UG are going to post more.
    Oasis without Noel? You mean Beady Eye? Seriously though, NME should just ****ing let it die. It won't happen anytime soon, that is for sure. We don't even know if it's going to ever happen. Fuck these tabloids and let Beady Eye and High Flying Birds be.
    Besides, let Liam grow as a songwriter. BE was great, it was a big step forward for him. If Oasis reunite this soon, he'll probably go back to being a lazy bastard again lol.
    the lazy one is called Noel, the people even think he WRITES songs...
    If you're saying this because Noel takes a lot of stuff from other artists, you're beating a dead horse. Noel himself admits it. Also, I was talking about the fact that Liam didn't used to write a lot when he was in Oasis and that being in Beady Eye is making him a pretty good songwriter. That being said... this is like, your 10th comment hating on Noel on this article. Shagged your wife has he?
    Does anyone even want an Oasis reunion right now?
    I do eventually. I never got to see them live. I don't even care that Liam lost his voice. It would just be a great experience.
    "Liam lost his voice" says a lot about your total lack of knowledge, in fact you've never seen them live. Just another Noely blinded fankid. Go and listen to him singing in falsetto to reach the high notes. That's not losing his voice, it's not having it.
    If they do, it'll be for the money and I think then it would completely pointless anyway.
    Doubt it. Noel doesn't need money. He turned down the Olympics for christ sake.
    get at least the FACTS right, Buckid. Your Noely said he refused because they asked him to mime, and Liam did not mime. At least at the Olympics they know Noel is no singer.
    ahahaha Bucboy, that's one of his many LIES, dear fankid. He was NOT going to be paid @ Olympics, for Christ sake, THAT'S why he refused to play, for Christ sake. Wow you talk about Oasis as a big expert and you said you didn't even seen them live. Noel NEEDS the money, he's still paying the royalties of all the songs he copied, for your info and ignorance, he must pay EVERYTIME one CD is sold.
    Then why even talk about it then Noel? Someone who needs to cling to something he says will never happen that way the tabloids keep coming back.
    Alan McGee is a tool. What would be an Oasis reunion anyway? Liam, Noel, then a revolving door for Guigsy, Bonehead, Tony McCarroll, Andy White, Gem, Andy Bell...? They haven't been Oasis since 1997 anyway.
    oh this is a big news... it was already 2 months the media darling was not repeating that... quite hilarious said by the one who left them 3 times (September 1994-summer 2000-2009) and planned split and reunion years ago, talking about a "5 year break"... They will obviously reform, as Noel repeated he's interested in money only...
