Noel Gallagher on Russell Brand: ‘His revolution might be as short-lived as his acting career’

Musician urges his comedian friend to stand in the 2015 general election

Russell Brand’s plans for revolution have been doubted by Noel Gallagher, who says he thinks the comedian’s political career might go the same way as his acting career.

Speaking in a new interview, Gallagher was asked about the aspirations his friend Brand has for leading people into a “no-vote” revolution, to which he replied that he thinks the comedian’s “heart is in the right place” and suggest that he should stand in the 2015 general election.

“I think his revolutionary ideals might be as short-lived as his acting career!” Gallagher said, adding: “He’s a good lad, Russell, and I love him dearly like a boyfriend. I think he should stand in the election, because it’s alright saying the words and all, but then you’re relying on other people to implement all this stuff you’re going on about.”

In the same interview with XFM Gallagher said that he is free to perform at Glastonbury in 2015, if organisers want him.

Dave Grohl recently saidthat Foo Fighters would headline Glastonbury if Oasis and Prince did it too. While not commenting on the possibility of a reunion with brother Liam, Noel went on to praise Grohl and hint that he has a free weekend in June that coincides with the 2015 event.
