The Wisdom Of Noel Gallagher – His Best Quotes

1 images

This one speaks for itself really. Or rather, he does. Back in 2012, Noel Gallagher was announced as that year’s recipient of the Godlike Genius award. An accolade well-deserved for a variety of reasons.

Of course there’s the small matter of 18 years of Oasis and seven classic albums, from ‘Definitely Maybe’ to ‘Dig Out Your Soul’, and also his more recent foray sans Liam with the High Flying Birds and the collaboration with Amorphous Androgynous.

But perhaps he mostly richly deserves this award for his tireless services to rock mythology, his one-of-a-kind interviews and his steady stream of cutting, insightful, or just downright hilarious quotes. Here’s 20 of his more genius soundbites; share your own favourite below.
