The Briton spoke about the breakup of the mythical band and how uncomfortable the following months were for his family.
Noel Gallagher once again referred to the separation of Oasis, this time in a new edition of the Sky Arts program, entitled Noel Gallagher: Out Of The Now.
The 54-year-old artist recounted that the famous fight with his brother, Liam, before the band’s performance at the French Rock en Seine festival, was just one of several: “The Oasis tours were always a struggle. The incident in Paris it was just the straw that broke the camel’s back. I didn’t feel any relief because I knew a shit storm was coming. And they were going to talk a lot of nonsense about it. “
The Manchester-born then referred to how uncomfortable the following months were for him and his family: “One of the biggest bands in history finally imploded. And I couldn’t go back to England because the press had come to my house and my wife was there with my kids. So we had to get her out of there in the middle of the night and she and the guys came to meet me somewhere in France. Then when we finally got back to England, of course, the damn thing was unleashed. hell”.
Still, Noel stated that the decision to leave the group was not an easy one. “It was my life, I directed it and creatively it was my thing. With the benefit of hindsight, it was the best for me and for the band,” he said.
Finally, he stated that he has no doubts that Oasis became even more iconic after the separation: “I felt that the public had stopped listening to the records and came just to see us play the hits and that is a position in which I never wanted them to. was the band. But now, of course, we are considered to be at the height of all the greats. “
