As reported, Gallagher dismissed the idea of drawing from his own life when looking for songwriting inspiration, saying such a strategy would produce work “more boring than James Blunt”.
Spotting NME‘s report on the jibe, Blunt himself responded and stated: “For once, I agree with him.”

Gallagher made his comment while talking to BBC Radio 2 DJ Edith Bowman (who was filling in for Dermot O’Leary) yesterday (January 31) about his forthcoming album ‘Chasing Yesterday’, and described the set as lacking a cohesive narrative.
When asked if he considered writing about his own experiences, Gallagher said: “If I wrote songs about my own life, they would be more boring than James Blunt. If that’s at all possible, which we all know, of course, it’s not.”
Speaking to NME for his recent cover story, Gallagher described ‘Chasing Yesterday’ as being full of “songs that make you kind of punch in the air while crying a little bit”.
