Noel Gallagher rejects Liam Gallagher’s offer to reform Oasis in 2015

Star also admits that he knew about The Stone Roses reunion all along

Noel Gallagher has rejected his brother Liam Gallagher‘s olive branch to reunite Oasis in 2015 for the 20th anniversary of ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’.

The band’s ex-guitarist said his brother was welcome to go ahead and play their seminal album in its entirety, but said he would have no involvement in it.

Gallagher told BBC Newsbeat: “He’s got my permission to go and play it. He can play it if he wants. I don’t mind. I left that band for a reason and that reason still stands.”

Despite recently launching legal action against his brother, Liam said if the pair could put “their shit aside” he would consider playing their seminal album in its entirety. Noel also admitted previously that he may have been too hasty quitting Oasis and he would have love to have toured their 1995 album again.

Meanwhile, the ex-Oasis chief also revealed that he knew about The Stone Roses reunion for some time. “We’d known for a while and were sworn to secrecy,” he told The Daily Star. “It’s great for the fans and for them and nice feeling just to see them together after so long. I love them as friends and as a band.”

He added: “They’ve been split for 15 years, we split up 15 minutes ago. We’re all waiting for The Smiths to do it. They say it won’t happen but they said the same about the Roses.”
