Noel Gallagher and his publicity team demanded that a GQ writer not ask about an Oasis reunion in a new interview.
Politely adhering to requests not to ask about the inevitable Oasis reunion (and I say inevitable because there is no kitchen island in the world able to cope with the amount of cash such a proposition will one day deliver), I was actually far more interested in when High Flying Birds would next be treading the boards…
We met in Tileyard studios in Kings Cross, in London, with a convivial Gallagher asking about this year’s GQ Men Of The Year Awards (“If they’re on, we’re in”) and talking about his holidays. It is perhaps fair to say that he looked as though he’s ageing in a more dignified manner than his rock-singer sibling: he’s still got his hair, his voice and – thankfully – his taste in shoes.
Liam Gallagher has been eager to reunite Oasis, even reuniting with an Oasis bandmate last week. Noel Gallagher has turned down several multi-million dollar offers to reunite Oasis in the last decade, as he is financially secure and does not need the money, choosing to focus on his High Flying Birds albums and tours.
