Noel Gallagher: ‘Liam is frightened to death of me’

The Oasis guitarist reveals new means of controlling his brother

Noel Gallagher reckons he can easily manipulate younger brother Liam.

Despite the Oasis kingpins being known for their fighting ways, Noel claims he can now twist the singer around his little finger without recourse to fisticuffs.

“I’ve kind of learnt that instead of arguing stuff out with him and ending up in a fight, I work on his psychology and he’s completely freaked out by me now,” the guitarist told Spin. “He’s actually frightened to death of me.”


“I can read him and I can fucking play him like a slightly disused arcade game,” added Noel summing-up the full extent of his manipulation. “I can make him make decisions that he thinks are his but really they’re mine. Without fighting. It’s an art I’ve learned.”

Oasis, meanwhile, have concluded their US tour and will head to Germany shortly to be begin their European tour in Hamburg on October 20.
