But the guitarist said he couldn’t face charging his friend rent and taking on landlord duties. He told Fantastic Man magazine:
I had a place in London up until about ’97, ’98 when Noel Gallagher vacated it, because I’d let him borrow it for a couple of years. I couldn’t be bothered being anyone’s landlord. I think he owes me a lot in back rent. At what, £2,000 a week?
The pair are long-term friends and both are Manchester City fans.
