Noel Gallagher is perfectly content not being in Oasis anymore
There’s no question that now-defunct English alternative rockers Oasis live on in their hits such as “Wonderwall” and “Champagne Supernova.” But, it seems the guys keep inching further and further away from ever getting back together, as former guitarist Noel Gallagher says that he really doesn’t miss being a member of Oasis.
“I don’t think about [Oasis] too much,” Gallagher recently told NME Radio. “If it was great I wouldn’t have left… I don’t miss it, I enjoy what I do now.”
Of course, by “what I do now,” Gallagher is referring to his solo project, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, which he fronts. He says heading up High Flying Birds is substantially more difficult than what he did in Oasis.
“This is a lot harder work than Oasis was, this is very hard on the brain, Oasis was hard on the soul,” Gallagher said. “When I was in Oasis, I’d shuffle on hung over, having been up late, by the time we got to my bits in the set I’d be very warmed up, but now I’ve got to be on it from the start.”
Right now, Gallagher is focused on releasing his debut solo live DVD, “International Magic Live at the O2,” on Oct. 16.
