Noel Gallagher says he would have let former members of Oasis carry on with the band name

Liam Gallagher admitted he wanted to reform the group earlier this month

Noel Gallagher has admitted that the remaining members of Oasis could have carried on with the name when he quit the band in 2009.

The High Flying Birds man claims that if the rest of the band had come to him, he would have let them have the name despite them going on to rename themselves Beady Eye, in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

“On the day that I left, they could have had the name if they’d have en masse, called me up. I would have signed the name off to them but they didn’t,” he said.


When asked if he would let the remaining members reform Oasis without him, he said: “I’d pay to see that (them do it without me). I think it’d be fucking interesting,” before he added: “We could start a rumour that I’m going to reform without Liam and I’m going to use a hologram like Tupac at Coachella. (No seriously though) I wouldn’t stop them at all. It would be fucking hilarious. I’m cool with it.”

He also denied any plans to reform the band himself and yet again said he would only do it for the money in an interview you can listen to below.

Gallagher added: “I get people going, ‘You will reform, you’ll definitely reform,’ and I’m like, ‘What makes you so sure?’ and they go, ‘You just will’. I’m like, ‘What the fuck, don’t be so fucking rude. Are you trying to Jedi mind trick me or what?

“You’d do it for the money and I like money and I would do it for the money if I needed the money but I don’t need the money.”

Liam Gallagher recently confirmed that he wants to reform Oasis, but that his “beige” brother Noel is refusing to get the band back together.


Liam also announced on Twitter that he is about to release some “new sounds”.

On Twitter, Gallagher wrote: “Listen up: no Oasis reunion. Rkid’s not into it. I am – he’s too busy being beige. New sounds on their way. Stay cool, and most of all stay relevant.”

He later tweeted “Not into jumping onto something that happened 20 years ago it was your idea you massive potato who you trying to kid mr showbizz”.
