No one dares to dictate to Noel Gallagher 😤. Recently, Matt Healy of The 1975 expressed his opinion that both he and his brother Liam should grow up and reunite Oasis. Needless to say, the elder Gallagher did not take kindly to Healy’s (and an entire generation’s) wishes, referring to the 34-year-old singer as a “loose-jawed asshole.”
During a recent interview with Spin while promoting his upcoming album ‘Council Skies’ with High Flying Birds, the topic of an Oasis reunion was brought up once again. Noel was asked about his thoughts on the comments made by the frontman of The 1975, who claimed that both Noel and Liam needed to “grow up and regroup.”
“Healy said, ‘There isn’t a single kid, not a single person, who goes to a High Flying Birds or Liam Gallagher concert who wouldn’t rather be at an Oasis concert,'” revealed the interviewer.
The comments sparked a significant online response and even garnered a reaction from Liam Gallagher, who responded, “It’s our time to waste, who made him the time boss?” Apparently, Noel was completely unaware of the conversation and only found out about the singer’s comments just now.
“Oh, that ignorant fool. What did he say?” Noel inquired when the subject was brought up.
“He claimed he could never imagine it, and he criticized his own band, suggesting they should break up.”
Noel also clarified why he has no interest in an Oasis reunion, asserting that he believes the band has already achieved everything they set out to do.
“If Oasis hadn’t fulfilled its potential, I might have a different perspective. But since Oasis accomplished everything it aimed for and more…” he explained.
“I don’t see any point in it. It was a moment in time, and if you missed it, tough luck. I missed the Sex Pistols, and I’ve moved on. So, people should do the same.”
Although the likelihood of a reunion happening anytime soon appears highly unlikely, the Brit-pop icons are preparing to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut album, ‘Definitely Maybe.’ In commemoration, Noel has confirmed that an anniversary edition containing previously unreleased material from that time will be published in 2024.
