Noel Gallagher: ‘When I close my eyes I don’t see Oasis reforming’ – watch

Gallagher opens up about future of Oasis and his relationship with brother Liam in TV interview

Noel Gallagher has said that he does “not see the appeal” of reuniting Oasis and admitted that he is not on speaking terms with his brother, Liam.

Gallagher, who earlier this week said that Russell Brand’s plans for revolution might go the same way as his acting career while also hinting heavily that he wants to play Glastonbury in 2015, discussed the future of Oasis while on The Jonathan Ross Show, which was broadcast last night (November 22).

Asked by Ross what the problem is with Oasis and why they have not got back together, Gallagher replied: “I don’t see the appeal. If I close my eyes I don’t see it happening” before clarifying, “that’s not to say that it never will. I’ve got a lot of things going on.”

Noel then revealed that he is not communicating with Oasis bandmate and family member Liam, a situation he says helps them stay friends. “There’s no problem. We don’t speak to each other so there’s no problem.”

Noel Gallagher recently confirmed details of new album ‘Chasing Yesterday’. The album will be released on March 2, 2015 under the name of Noel Gallagher & The High Flying Birds.

The album also features Johnny Marr on the track ‘Ballad Of The Mighty I’. In addition to the album, details of a UK and Ireland arena tour were also announced with dates in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Nottingham and Belfast. Scroll down for full details.

This year, Oasis’ first two albums – ‘Definitely Maybe’ and ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ – have been reissued. NME‘s newest Collector’s Edition is an attempt to bottle up and present the wild spirit of those times. Over 100 pages it tells the story of every song they wrote, recorded and released during the time, delves into the NME, Melody Maker and VOX archives to pick out some classic interviews, and builds up to the peak of their career: playing to a quarter of a million people at Knebworth Park in August 1996.
