Of Course Noel Gallagher has a Great Opinion on TIDAL


The music world is always a better place when Noel Gallagher is making music and doing Noel-Gallagher2015interviews, as both often lead to very memorable moments.

In a new conversation with Rolling Stone, Gallagher was asked about his opinion on TIDAL, the high-fidelity audio and exclusive content company in which Jay Z and loads of other famous musicians have an ownership stake in. Of course, Gallagher had something clever to say:

“I thought that the people on the stage might want to be a little bit aware that they don’t look like Jay Z’s minions. Madonna was pretty cool the way she cocked her leg up on that desk and signed the [declaration]. I think ultimately with the spiel they came out with, it was like, ‘Do these people think they’re the fuckin’ Avengers? They’re going to save the fuckin’ [world].’ I was speaking to Chris [Martin] the day after, and I said, ‘Are you after a Nobel Peace Prize? Is that what you’re after?’ They were like, ‘We’re going to fuckin’ save the music business.’ And I’m just sitting there, thinking [imitates smoking weed] you might want to write a decent chorus for a fuckin’ start. Never mind fuckin’ royalties and the ‘power of music.’ Write a tune. Fuckin’ start with that.”

Continued Gallagher: “I only watched [the press conference] because someone was like, ‘Get on these bunch of cunts on here.’ And I went, ‘Who?’ ‘Fuckin’ your mate Chris Martin and all these cunts.’ I got on YouTube and was like, [makes crinkled face] ‘Oh. Ohhh. Ohhhhhh.’ Alicia Keys made a speech that really should have been at the U.N. ‘We’re all aware of the power of music!’ But I don’t think you are. I quote Nietzche regularly too, but only when I’m talking about downloading. {laughs}

…And Gallagher drops the mic.
