Noel Gallagher has declared himself as "the best dressed roadie in rock 'n' roll history" and says he believes he'd still be setting up bands' gear now if he hadn't made it with Oasis.

The guitarist, who released his debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' late last year, told The Sun that he was convinced he'd still be touring with bands now as part of the backline crew as he did with Inspiral Carpets if Oasis had not gone on to become a successful band.

Asked what he reckoned he'd be doing if Oasis hadn't made it, Gallagher said: "I would have been out there now, probably in an ill-fitting black T-shirt with a tattoo and some scruffy Converse trainers. Because that is what they all wear."

He continued: "But I was maybe the best-dressed roadie in the history of music. I used to wear white jeans and never got them dirty. I was too quick for the dirt."

Meanwhile, Gallagher has confirmed the release of his first solo live DVD on October 15. International Magic Live At The O2 will feature the full gig from his February 26 show plus a second disc which will include footage of his performance from the NME Awards, where he was crowned this year's Godlike Genius, plus an acoustic set at The Mod Club in Toronto and three music videos from his recent singles.

Gallagher and his High Flying Birds will also play the iTunes Festival on September 12 at London's Roundhouse. See itunesfestival.com for full details on how to get tickets.
