Blur's Dave Rowntree has admitted that people still apologise to him when they mention Oasis in front of him.

On his radio show on XFM this week (Thursday, February 6), the drummer plays Oasis' 'Stop Crying Your Heart' and introduces the track by saying that people still think he's "bitter" about the two bands' Britpop rivalry.

"When people around me inadvertently mention something to do with Oasis, or to do with something to do with Oasis, they generally turn to me and apologise. So if they say: "I remember when I bought 'Roll With It'", they go, 'Sorry Dave!' Or they say, 'I think the new Beady Eye single's quite good… Sorry Dave!'. So clearly people think that I'm still bitter about the battle of Britpop."

Last week, Roger Daltrey hinted that he will try and get Oasis to reunite for a Teenage Cancer Trust gig. "Noel and Liam are brothers so it will all be alright. Don't worry. Blood is thicker than music," he said. "Could I bring them together for a Teenage Cancer Trust show? Ask me next year."
