Noel Gallagher blames Liam for Oasis reunion rumours
Noel Gallagher has blamed his brother Liam for fuelling rumours of an Oasis reunion.
The 'Wonderwall' singer claims the band have never considered reuniting since he sensationally quit the band in 2009, and has slammed his younger brother and former bandmate for giving people hope of a reunion.
He ranted: "There was a rumour last week that we've had a gentleman's agreement [to reform the band], but that rumour's come from his people. It's a 'source close to him,' and I'll tell you how close it is: She probably wakes up with him every morning. It's always left to me in an interview to let the kids down. People say, 'You're breaking these kids' hearts.' Well, what the f**k, man?"
The 47-year-old rocker also denied recent reports the former Beady Eye frontman, Liam, attended one of his shows in March - after he posted a photo online with a backstage pass - saying the 42-year-old musician would have acted "like a f***in' gobs***e" if he had been there.
He told Rolling Stone magazine: "Well, it wasn't his pass. He wasn't there. It was my other brother's pass. If he'd had been at one of my gigs, you would've known about it because he'd have made his way onstage and started acting like a f***in' gobs***e. He's being a bit disingenuous to Oasis fans in the sense that he always gets their hopes up."
However, Liam has since denied the accusations made against him in the interview, comparing his sibling to the controversial TV personality Katie Hopkins and mocking his music.
He wrote on Twitter: "I see Noel Katie Hopkins Gallagher is talking out of his slack a**e again go and polish your SAXAPHONE Ha ha LGx. (sic)"
