Noel Gallagher has said he is happy that his band have made it onto an official tourist list of British rock landmarks.
As previously reported, Berwick Street in London has been included on VisitBritain’s “rock map” after it featured on the cover of
Oasis’ 1995 album ’(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’.
Speaking to NME.COM the guitarist revealed he chuffed to be on the list, even if he isn’t as pleased with the LP’s sleeve.
“Do you think people do the thing down the street like they do at Abbey Road. That would be fucking great wouldn’t it?” he joked. “I wouldn’t mind but it’s such a fucking shit cover. [But] I’d like to think Japanese people do walk down that street in rush-hour dodging black cabs. I hope they put up one of those blue plaques!”
