Star Wars star Ewan McGregor recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and discussed getting into a lightsaber fight with Noel Gallagher.
“Well, it was Noel Gallagher’s 30th birthday party and he lived quite close to me in London, north London,” McGregor answered when Kimmel asked him about Gallagher’s story about the epic duel, “and I was at his party and then there was a lightsaber fight in his garden very early the next day in the morning.” Ewan did debunk part of the story, but said, “But I don’t remember too much instruction. I don’t remember any lessons being given by Noel. It was just more of a battle in the garden.”
Noel said, via a new Far Out Magazine article, “Oasis is done I’m afraid.”
“The legacy of the band is set in stone. If people have seen us, they’ll understand what all the fuss is about. If you didn’t see us, then that’s tough ‘cos I’ve never seen The Beatles or the Sex Pistols.”
“People ask me that question on a daily basis and I can only say to you that, I just don’t feel like it,” he added. “When you’re in a band, it’s an absolute compromise so no I don’t think I could come up with an idea and then run it by four people and then six weeks later, somebody knocks it back because their cat’s got a cough so I like to march to the beat of my own drum.”
He concluded: “Oasis is done I’m afraid.”
