Recently, Richard Ashcroft hit back at Noel Gallagher over his claim that he has an “an army of songwriters” writing his music.


In a recent interview, Noel named several artists he believed to benefit from songwriting teams, listing: “Richard Ashcroft, our kid (Liam Gallagher), all the way to fucking Ed Sheeran and the little fella from One Direction, they’ve all got an army of songwriters behind them.”

Responding to Noel’s comments on Twitter, Ashcroft fired back: “I don’t write my own songs? You want to qualify that NG”.
