Noel Gallagher Says Oasis Will Never Reunite, Not Even For All The Starving ChildrenBy Laura Aguirre
Reunions are the hot thing right now. Everyone is getting back together, putting on reunion tours and making new music. But one band that won’t be doing that, not even if “all the starving children in the world depended on it,” is Oasis. Noel Gallagher has completely ruled out an Oasis reformation.
The former lead guitarist told NME Radio in an interview that he has no need to reform Oasis, even though he knows the band’s fans would love to see them back together.
When Noel was asked if he would ever consider reforming Oasis, he said:
“Not even if all the starving children in the world depended on it. I know it’s the done thing these days and what people do, but it’s not what I do. I know bands reform and ‘They’re bigger than they ever were’ and ‘They’re more successful than they ever were’, but Oasis were one of the biggest bands in the world.”
Noel believes that the band were one of the five biggest in the world, at one point. And that they were the biggest thing to come out of England in 35 years (ahem, he might’ve forgotten of a little band called Radiohead just then).
“Why would we [reform]? For the fans? Nobody ever gave a shit about the fans in that band. It’s done.”
So there you have it. Oasis never cared about the fans and thus will never reform. But as long as the members are alive and well, we can’t completely rule out a reunion, can we? Still, seems a bit of a long shot.
Noel Gallagher is set to release his first live DVD on October 15.
