Tailgunner frontman MARK COYLE has told nme.com that NOEL GALLAGER was not sacked from the band, as he recently claimed.
Coyle, who produced Oasis‘ debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’, said that although Gallagher was no longer with Tailgunner, he remained “the best fucking mate I’ve ever had”, adding that he “wouldn’t dream” of kicking the troubled guitarist out of his band.
He continued: “Noel‘s not in the group, but he’s never been sacked, I would never sack Mr Gallagher, I would never dream of it!”
Coyle‘s remarks come only days after Gallagher told UK listings magazine Time Out: “I got kicked out by the band – fired by me best mate! He signed to another label, and I said, ‘I’ve got me own label’, and he was like, ‘So what, I’ve got another one, and by the way, you’re not drumming.”
Noel is not expected to play drums on any of Tailgunner‘s forthcoming live dates in Scotland, even though Coyle commented “it would mean a lot” if he made it to see him play at the shows.
Gallagher plays drums on Tailgunner‘s eponymous debut album, which is released on September 18 through No Label Records.
