Alan McGee gives update on health after being hospitalised

'I caught it in time'

Alan McGee has given an update on his health after he was rushed to hospital last week.

The former Creation Records boss first signed Oasis in 1993 and now runs Creation Management – handling the likes of The Jesus And Mary Chain, The Happy Mondays and more.

Now, the music mogual and Britpop veteran has spoken out about his current condition after being taken to hospital after suffering a hernia.


“Good news,” he shared on Instagram. “I got taken into hospital last Wednesday with a hernia come through my stomach. In the middle of that, they told me they were keeping me in as I had an inflamed colon. The blood number when I got in was 375, normal is five – I am down to 114 and if it goes down again they will let me out tomorrow or next day.”

He continued: “When inflammation goes, they will work out what went wrong, but no exploration while still inflamed. 800 is critical so I caught it in time. So glad to get out.”

McGee added: “I went in for an antibiotic and will come out a week later. For the record, NHS Wales are fucking awesome. The doctors and nurses are amazing. Ten out of ten.”

Speaking to NME earlier this year, McGee told us about his thoughts on the chances of an Oasis reunion. “I don’t think Noel will ever reform Oasis, ever – but when he’s a bit older I think Liam will probably reform Oasis and he’ll sell 10,000 tickets a night singing Oasis tunes and he’ll be happy with that,” he said. “I can’t see Noel Gallagher going back and doing it. If anything came out of that film [Supersonic], it was that it’s done, it’s finished, don’t spoil the fucking legend.”
