Noel Gallagher wants his sons to form the ‘next Oasis’

Gallagher talks about the prospect of his kids forming a band

Noel Gallagher has spoken about the prospect of his two sons forming a band, saying that he would encourage them to do so.

The former Oasis guitarist spoke to BANG Showbiz at the Q Awards on Monday (October 19).

Asked if he would advise against his sons Donovan and Sonny following in his footsteps, Gallagher replied: “No, because we were fucking great. You know what I mean. I don’t know if you heard but we sold like 70 million fucking albums.”

Gallagher says he won’t be teaching his kids how to play guitar, however: “I can’t teach anyone because I just kind of magicked it up. So my lad has got a drum kit in his bedroom and a guitar, I don’t know what he’s trying to do fucking at both of them at the same time or something. He’s also left-handed, which is slightly annoying.”

”My theory is that if we have musical instruments lying around the house then they will just pick them up. I don’t say guitar lessons today from three until quarter past. If they do it they do it and if they don’t they don’t.”

Gallagher also admitted that his sons are more interested in hip-hop than his music. He said: ”They’re not listening to me that’s for sure. They listen to a lot of hip-hop which is slightly annoying. They listen to what their mum listens to and she’s kind of urban as well. Hip-hop hasn’t grown on me, to be honest.”
