Noel Gallagher Would “pay to see” Oasis Go On Without Him
When Noel Gallagher exited Oasis in 2009, the remaining members formed Beady Eye and released new music under that guise, all the while dipping back into the Oasis treasure trove of hits for live gigs. As it turns out, however, Liam Gallagher and the fellow Oasis members who formed Beady Eye could’ve, theoretically, performed under the Oasis banner.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the always candid Noel Gallagher touched on that subject, to say the least.
“On the day that I left, they could have had the name if they’d have en masse, called me up. I would have signed the name off to them but they didn’t,” explained Gallagher. “I’d pay to see that (them do it without me). I think it’d be fucking interesting.”
Gallagher went on to add: “We could start a rumour that I’m going to reform without Liam and I’m going to use a hologram like Tupac at Coachella. [But no] I wouldn’t stop them at all. It would be fucking hilarious. I’m cool with it.”
As much as that would’ve potentially entertained Gallagher, he does admit that what really gets him going now is people assuming that it’s only a matter of time before Oasis reunite.
Gallagher offered: “I get people going, ‘You will reform, you’ll definitely reform,’ and I’m like, ‘What makes you so sure?’ and they go, ‘You just will’. I’m like, ‘What the fuck, don’t be so fucking rude. Are you trying to Jedi mind trick me or what?”
He continued: “You’d do it for the money and I like money and I would do it for the money if I needed the money but I don’t need the money.”
So, definitely not maybe?
