Noel Gallagher responds to Oasis Rock and Roll Hall of Fame speculation

Britpop band could be inducted from 2019 onwards

Noel Gallagher has responded to speculation that Oasis could be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019, dismissing the idea that the Britpop band would reunite for the occasion.

The band’s 1994 debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’ turns 25 in 2019, which would make the group eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

When asked about the possibility, Gallagher told Rolling Stone: “I’ve already been approached by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame… The fuckin’ fella from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame came to me and said, ‘Do you know in two years you’ll be eligible for the Hall of Fame?’ I said, ‘Is that right?’ He said, ‘Yes.'”

Noel added: “And he started going on, and I said, ‘Let me fucking stop you there. I know what it is. I know what it entails, and it won’t be fucking happening, OK?'”

“He invited me down to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame itself and showed me all these exhibits of Oasis stuff. It’s a great place and all that, but I won’t be doing it, I don’t think.”

Asked whether Oasis deserve to be inducted, Noel answered: “I certainly think I do… There could be a little miniature of me somewhere – a tiny little thing with a wobbly head.”

“I find it fascinating that people find the relationship between me and Liam fascinating,” Gallagher went on to saw. “It would only be fascinating if we were a songwriting partnership and had to make this thing work.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Noel explained why he can’t write “sad” like Thom Yorke.
