Noel Gallagher has described a run-in with an alleged stalker who broke into his hotel and found his room.
The former Oasis guitarist recently spoke to TalkSport, describing the feeling after his band played Manchester’s Maine Road in 1996.
Speaking about the occasion, Gallagher said: “I was thinking: ‘I definitely want a chimp after this, and a top hat and a mirror Rolls-Royce and a couple of stalkers’.
He then went on to reveal how he has actually experienced trouble with stalkers in the past. “I have had a stalker, yes,” he said, adding: “She’s German, actually.”
Noel continued: “She’s a proper lunatic. Breaking into hotels and stuff, shouting underneath the door, as I’m calling my security guard saying, ‘Get this head case out of here!’ and she’s like, ‘I know you’re in there!'”
The Manchester musician continued to describe the individual as “not the most attractive woman” but that it “wouldn’t change anything” if she was.
