Noel Gallagher On Maroon 5 And More

Another feud? Former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher apparently has some pretty serious beef with the American pop-rock band Maroon 5.

In a sit-down interview with Comedy Central's Jim Jefferies on Tuesday night, the British songwriter lamented that "guitar bands are shite these days," when asked what groups he likes in the current marketplace.

Gallagher went on to tell Jefferies a story, in which "after a gig" he once encountered the bassist for Maroon 5 at a bar in Hollywood. The band's bass player is Mickey Madden, although Gallagher did not name him during the interview.

He recalled that the bass player told him, "'Hey man, you really inspired me to play' – and all that." Gallagher then asked Madden what band he played for.

After he told Gallagher he was the bass player for Maroon 5, Gallagher said his reaction was, "F**king s**t! How the f**k have you got Maroon 5 from what I'm doing?"

He finished with an instruction: "Be gone out of my sight."

But the story continued, as everyone piled into cars to head to a party. Gallagher recalled, "At about 4 o'clock in the morning, I'm coming out of the toilet. The bass player from Maroon 5 is still there, waiting to get in the f**king bathroom. And I'm like, 'F**king hell are you still here?'"

Gallagher said Madden responded by saying, "This is my house."

"And, I was like, 'This is a f**king great house,'" Gallagher said.
