Noel Gallagher: ‘Beady Eye should play my songs whenever they like’

The High Flying Birds man says he'll be happy as long as the royalties keep rolling in

Noel Gallagher has said that he hopes his brother Liam and his bandmates in Beady Eye continue to play Oasis songs live as he’s quite happy to pick up the royalties.

Beady Eye performed two Oasis songs – ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Star’ and ‘Morning Glory’ – during their recent gig in Warrington and at Heaton Park supporting The Stone Roses and have vowed to continue to do so in all their future live shows.

Speaking in The Sun today (July 11), Noel said he hopes Beady Eye carry on playing the songs as long as they make sure they fill out PRS royalty forms after they do.

He said of this: “Beady Eye have my permission to play my songs and they should do whatever they like. I say he should go around the world, do those songs and fill out the PRS forms.”

Beady Eye are booked to play this summer’s Fuji Rock Festival in Japan and are currently working on new material for their second album.

Noel Gallagher plays Benicassim this weekend and has a busy festival schedule for the rest of the summer, with slots at V Festival, Jersey Live, Belsonic and Rock En Seine amongst his live plans.
