Noel Gallagher has claimed that God is likely to be a fan of Oasis.

Gallagher, who quit Oasis in 2009 and released his debut solo album in 2011, revealed his theory to The Sun. Explaining how he will convince St Peter to let him in when he reaches the pearly gates, Gallagher said: “I’d say, ‘You’ve heard 'Don’t Look Back In Anger'?’, and they’d say, ‘Of course’. I’d say, ‘Look it’s me, let us in. I can play you a tune. I robbed some stuff, I took a lot of drugs, but I’m all right’.”

Meanwhile, it's bad news for Oasis fans (including God) hoping to see the band reform any time soon. Speaking during a recent interview with C4 comedian Alan Carr, Noel stated that the band won't get back together unless their financial situation dramatically worsens. "What would it take? It would take Liam or myself to be very skint, and I know for a fact that ain't gonna happen. So other than that, I can't see it."

The singer also spoke about how he will approach talking to his children about drugs, admitting that it would be rich for him to preach abstinence given his well-documented history with cigarettes and alcohol – and more. Gallagher said he was "dreading" his children's teenage years as he's in no position to lecture them, so would instead say, "Everything in moderation, lads. And just remember: you will never be as cool as your dad. Remember that."
