Noel Gallagher reveals why he never pays for black cabs anymore

And its not because he uses Uber...

In a recent interview, Noel Gallagher revealed what the best perk of being an ex-Oasis member and it’s winning the favour of London cabbies.

The singer-songwriter released his new High Flying Birds album ‘Who Built the Moon?’ on Friday (November 24). Read the NME review here.

While promoting the album on Absolute Radio, Gallagher shared how his black cab experience usually plays out. Speaking to Frank Skinner, Noel said: “If you’re hailing a black, there’s a 99% certainty that the guy that pulls over is going to be an Oasis fan”.

Impersonating a cab driver, Noel continued: “‘I won’t charge you. You’ve given me so many great memories, son’ and I’m like ‘It’s £2.20′”.

Meanwhile, Noel recently addressed his band’s infamous scissors player, justifying the band member with the fact that she’s “snipping away at the last ribbons of Liam‘s sanity”.

During his performance with the High Flying Birds on Jools Holland earlier this month, the former Oasis guitarist had a member of his live band playing a pair of scissors.

The incident went viral online, with brother Liam responding at the time by tweeting that he had “somebody sharpening a pencil” in his band. Liam then appeared to mock Noel when he had someone peeling a potato at one of his own gigs.

Earlier this week, Noel dismissed claims he’d “coordinated” his album release with Liam for “publicity”. He stated: “It’s slightly annoying. My shit is not reacting [to Liam’s album]. It’s not reactionary on that level to anybody’s.
