Oasis mainman reveals why he quit the tour and his plans for a solo album...

Noel Gallagher has broken his silence about his shock departure from Oasis on Tuesday, saying his relationship with his brother LIAM is irrevocably broken.

In an interview in today’s Sun newspaper Noel said: “We don’t have a relationship outside the band. We are not good at playing happy families.”

He denied that Oasis will split, saying he will record a solo album but “that doesn’t necessarily mean you are leaving the band. I intend to do both”.

He attacked Liam‘s claim that he was ‘born to be a star’, saying: “He’s just a normal kid with a good voice singing in a good band. It’s as simple as that. He’s a singer. Singers have massive egos.

“All the things about stardom are just fucking bullshit. The more you believe it the more stupid and meaningless your actual life becomes.”

In an interview with new guitarist Matt Deighton he admitted that he’s never even talked to Liam.
