Noel Gallagher slams Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Kaiser Chiefs

Plus the Oasis man has a pop at Scouting For Girls…

Oasis Noel Gallagher has given his verdict on a variety of contemporary pop stars, slamming Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Kaiser Chiefs and Scouting for Girls.

Gallagher, speaking to BBC Newsbeat, compared Winehouse to a horse and suggested that Ronson should write more of his own material.

After re-naming Scouting for GirlsScouting For Idiots” and comparing Winehouse to a “destitute horse,” the guitarist joked that Ronson had “ruined” many of his peers’ careers.

“He [Ronson] wants to write his own tunes instead of ruining everyone else’s,” he said. “Mark Ronson needs to learn three chords on the guitar and write a tune.”

Referring to Kaiser Chiefs, whose forthcoming new album ‘Off With Their Heads’ Ronson has co-produced, Gallagher said, “The Monkees haven’t split up, they’re just going under the name of the Kaiser Chiefs.

“I did drugs for 18 years and I never got that bad as to say, ‘You know what? I think the Kaiser Chiefs are brilliant.'”
