Plus guitarist pays tribute to Ryan Adams

Oasis leader Noel Gallagher has said his band are in the same league as The Rolling Stones now.

The guitarist made the admission during the band’s current US tour.

“Everybody knows who we are. You have to see us in league with The Rolling Stones now,” he declared. “Everybody’s heard of the Stones, everybody knows what they sound like, everybody knows what they do. You either go because you like it or you don’t. It’s easy.”

Gallagher also praised Ryan Adams, who is currently support Oasis in the US.

He told Rolling Stone: “I’ve got a lot of respect for the man. He’s a great guitar player.

“He’s a little eccentric. He wears stripy socks and platform shoes, but not everybody’s perfect. I wouldn’t be on tour with him if I didn’t like him.”
