Band won't reform "unless they're doing it without me", claims guitarist

Noel Gallagher has once again scoffed at claims that Oasis are set for a lucrative reunion next year – but admitted he might consider it if he was broke.

Reports have consistently appeared in recent weeks claiming that the band would get back together to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’.

Denying the stories again, Noel told talkSport presenter Andy Goldstein: “Maybe people keep thinking if that if they say it, it will eventually happen. It’s not going to happen. Unless they’re doing it without me, but without me it would be rubbish.” He gave fans faint hopes that a reunion could happen one day, adding: “One can never say never, because one might be skint. But I’ve got no intention. I’m not interested.”

Last month, Gallagher said a reunion defintely wouldn’t happen. Fresh claims of the band reforming last weekend were quickly dismissed by Gallagher’s spokesman.

Noel’s brother Liam meanwhile told NME last year that he would be interested in “burying the hatchet for a lap of honour” for Oasis, who split in 2009 following a fight between the siblings before the Rock en Seine festival in Paris.
