Oasis leader to follow up his work on 'The Royle Family'?
“I’d like to be part of a team of scriptwriters,” the guitarist explained. “I think I’d be good. Russell has been trying to rope me into something, but at the moment I can’t commit to anything outside Oasis. But one day. Who knows?”
He also revealed that he’s friends with the comedian because of their “contrary characteristics”.
“Russell‘s a big posh Essex boy former-junkie who’s been to the dark side and found Hare Krishna. He’s never seen a council estate,” joked Gallagher. “I’m a gruff northerner who drinks Red Stripe. He finds that fascinating.”
