Noel Gallagher appeared on Pub Talk this week. He spoke about a wide variety of topics, but one thing that touched the hearts of people was his non-willingness to bring Oasis back. Oasis was a famous band, but Noel thinks that he sells an equal number of records as the group did together.
Oasis’ debut album ‘Definitely Maybe‘ became the fastest-selling debut album of all time in the UK when it was released in 1994. Its 1995 follow-up ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?‘ was second only to Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad’ in being the fastest-selling album in British history. To date, the band have sold more than 70 million albums worldwide.

Earlier this year former Oasis singer and brother to Noel, Liam, said that Oasis “should never have split up,” and that he would “love” the iconic band to get back together. Ever since the band’s breakup in 2009 rumours have periodically risen about a potential reunion despite Liam and brother Noel not being on speaking terms.
As funny as this sounds, Oasis sell as many records now per year as we did when we were together. We’re as popular now in the eyes of the people as we ever were. And I’m happy with it. If we got back together there would be a circus – and there’s no point. Just leave it as it is. I’m happy. He’s [Liam Gallagher] doing his thing. He’s still selling out Knebworth. It’s like, mate, good luck to you, do you know what I mean?
Meanwhile, Blur‘s Graham Coxon said earlier this month that he’d be up for trying to get Oasis back together. Speaking to The Evening Standard, the guitarist was asked about a potential reunion with his own band and a tour next year before addressing Oasis. He said that he was excited about the prospect of Pulp getting back together and he’d be happy to see Oasis reunite. “That would be fun [seeing Pulp return]. Just need Oasis to do it. Knock those brothers’ heads together.”
Would you be willing to see Oasis together? Sound off in the comments.
