Noel Gallagher: ‘I wish I’d have made ‘Be Here Now’ shorter’ – video

Former Oasis man berates long length of band's 1997 album

Noel Gallagher has admitted it was a mistake making Oasis‘ 1997 album ‘Be Here Now’ so long.

In a new video interview which you can watch on the right of your screen now, the guitarist says he was asked to edit the album down at the time, though he ignored all requests to do so.

“I can’t listen to any of that album, it’s too long,” he explained, adding: “I wish I’d have exercised a bit more quality control on that and edited the songs down.”

However, Gallagher went on to state that that period in Oasis‘ history was one of his most enjoyable.

“On the flip side of that…it was a fucking great time to be alive in that band. I’ll tell you what man, it was the best time ever. Ever!”
