Oasis ‘no longer’ says Gallagher
Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher has said the band has definitively ended. Speaking out for the first time since brother Noel quit in August, Gallagher said: “It’s a shame, but we had a good run at it.”
“We ended Oasis. No-one ended it for us, which is kind of cool,” he said in the interview with The Times. The 37-year-old added that he was considering his next move in the world of music, and said: “I’ll be doing music to the day I die.”
He added: “I’m thinking of what the next step is musically, which is all my mind’s on,” He also said he would take his time to ensure his “Oasis headstone” was not one of anger. Gallagher said touring with his brother and the band was
“always a lot of fun”, but admitted “nothing lasts forever”. Noel Gallagher confirmed that he was leaving Oasis in August after a concert in Paris was abruptly cancelled.
He said he was no longer able to work with his brother, and made the announcement with “some sadness and great relief”. Gallagher later said on the band’s website that “violent and verbal intimidation” and a lack of support from his bandmates had hastened his decision.
He thanked his fans for an “amazing” 18 years.
