Noel Gallagher On The Future, Music, Family, Oasis And More

Some quotes from Noel Gallagher's interview on the Eddie Hearn on BBC 5 Live’s ‘No Passion No Point‘ podcast.

On the future "I’m on tour until November, I’ve just built a recording studio … but there’s no hard and fast plans .. family life is going to take over in 2020 which is great. Plans will get fucked up in the modern world.”

On music and his family "I’m a fan of music, first and foremost." "What else am I going to do? I can’t do anything else. I’m not interested in anything else. I’m obsessed with Sarah, the kids, City and music. That’s it."

On leaving Oasis "One of the reasons it wasn’t much of a struggle leaving Oasis was that we’d allowed ourselves to be dictated to by our audience. They wanted stadium rock and we thought that was it. Towards the end of Oasis I was getting restless and bored with the music.  And now I trust my instincts."

On The High Flying Birds compare to Oasis "I’m older now and I’m more considered about my approach. Oasis was all about the struggle, about the struggle from growing up to getting there, then the struggle staying there when everybody’s pulling in a different direction and you’ve kind of got to make it work".

“This is just serene. I’ve managed to get a load of people who are all on the same page, everybody’s pulling in the same direction.”

On social media “I’m quite a private person, I’m not interested in people seeing what socks I’m wearing or taking a photo of a croissant and going ‘Breakfast anybody?… I don’t want anyone to know anything about me at all, I’m not interested in people seeing the real me.”
