Noel Gallagher has recalled the last time he heard from brother Liam since they made up following their 2009 brawl.
The pair’s backstage fight before a festival in France ended with Oasis splitting up.
“He sends me cheeky texts from time to time,” Gallagher told The Sun. “He texted me the other night asking when my duet with Robbie Williams was coming out. He’s all right.”
Gallagher also spoke about his working class roots and the reasons he sends his children to private school. “My kids go to private school because I don’t want them coming home talking like Ali G,” he said. The working class are the new middle class – and there is a non-working class, the people on benefits, below.
“When I was growing up, working class people had pride, were smart, dressed well and had joy and passion for culture. I look at all those people on Benefits Street and think there is nothing to them, The government has de-educated people.”
Noel Gallagher was announced as one of the headliners for T In The Park Festival yesterday. The singer, who releases his new album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ on March 2, has previously criticised the state of the current British music scene because of its lack of working class musicians.
“Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian, that’s 10 years ago now and shame on those two bands for a start because they didn’t inspire anybody else. The working classes have not got a voice any more, there doesn’t seem to be a noise coming from the council estates, you know what I mean?” Gallagher said.
