Noel Gallagher wants sons to form the next Oasis

Noel Gallagher would love it if his two sons formed a band together and became the next Oasis.

The 48-year-old rocker founded Oasis with his brother Liam and although they have since fallen out, leading to the demise of the band, Noel would be thrilled if his sons Donovan and Sonny, whose mother is Sara MacDonald, followed in his footsteps.

When asked if he would advise the brothers against starting a band together, Noel said: "No because we were f***ing great. You know what I mean. I don't know if you heard but we sold like 70 million f***ing albums. It (Oasis) was great but these things can't go on forever can they."

However, Noel isn't teaching his sons how to play musical instruments as he believes they will pick it up naturally if they have the talent.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the Q Awards at London's Grosvenor House hotel on Monday (19.10.15), he explained: "The funny thing is that because I was never taught I can't teach anyone because I just kind of magicked it up. So my lad has got a drum kit in his bedroom and a guitar, I don't know what he's trying to do f***ing at both of them at the same time or something. He's also left-handed which is slightly annoying.

"My theory is that if we have musical instruments lying around the house then they will just pick them up. I don't say guitar lessons today from three until quarter past. If they do it they do it and if they don't they don't."

While Noel wants his children to follow in his footsteps, he admitted they don't listen to his music.

He said: "They're not listening to me that's for sure. They listen to a lot of hip hop which is lightly annoying. They listen to what they're mum listens to and she's kind of urban as well. Hip hop hasn't grown on me, to be honest."

And when asked if he is a strict dad, Noel -who also has daughter Anais from his first marriage to Meg Matthews - said: "My teenage daughter is f***ing cooler than anybody in that room today for sure. I don't have any problems with her at the minute. The two lads they'll be what teenagers in 10 years who knows where we'll all be in 10 years."

However, Noel has no plans for any more children, saying: "F**k no way! No, no, no. We're getting a dog soon that's enough."
