Former Creation Records boss Alan McGee has said he believes Oasis will reform again one day.

The music mogul believes the band will return but it is unlikely to be long term. His comments come after former frontman Liam Gallagher hinted on several occasions that he would like the band to reform for the 20th anniversary of the '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' in 2015.

His brother Noel initially expressed some interest in a reunion in four years time but has since distanced himself from any reunion.

McGee told BBC 6 Music:

Even if it's not the Morning Glory tour, I think you will see Oasis play again, not as a band like [Primal] Scream but I can see them doing a huge gig for charity in a few years but they've just got to stop insulting each other.


Earlier this week, McGee scotched reports that he is writing a musical about the Britpop story. But he did say he was writing a show for the stage with Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh.

He told NME: "I don't want to give away what we're already talking about, but it's not going to be like 'Noel walked in and then Liam walks over, and then Bobby Gillespie walks in'. It's nothing to do with Creation or Britpop in that respect."
