Noel Gallagher Would Reunite Oasis For A Ton Of Money

Noel Gallagher would reunite Oasis, but only for the right price. In a new interview with Q, he said: “Nobody has made us an offer. I’ve been in the same room as Liam, and even then nobody’s said, ‘Weren’t Oasis great? You should re-form.’ But if I was ever going to do it, it would only be for the money.” Of course, there are a lot of factors to take into account: namely, would Liam even be down to do it? Both brothers are busy with solo projects — Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are putting out their second album in March, and Beady Eye only recently broke up. And Noel’s wary of being forgotten: “Look at the Stone Roses. When you’re constantly getting asked if you’re going to re-form, you can only keep saying, ‘no’ until you say ‘yes.’ […] Now the Roses have re-formed, no one mentions them anymore.” Read his full comments below.

Nobody has made us an offer. I’ve been in the same room as Liam, and even then nobody’s said, ‘Weren’t Oasis great? You should re-form. But if I was ever going to do it, it would only be for the money. This isn’t me putting it out there, by the way. Would I do it for charity? No way. We’re not that kind of people. For Glastonbury? I don’t think Michael Eavis has got enough money. But would we get back together one day? As long as everybody is still alive and still has their hair, it’s always a possibility. But only for the money.

“Look at The Stone Roses. When you’re constantly getting asked if you’re going to re-form, you can only keep saying, ‘No’ until you say, ‘Yes.’ I’ve never spoken to [Roses guitarist]John Squire about this, but it’s like John got bullied into saying, ‘Yes’. Now the Roses have re-formed, no one mentions them any more. I think it’s ingrained in the English psyche – this idea that the glory days, the Empire, are behind us. Led Zeppelin! The Smiths! The Jam! They should all re-form! Why? So a load of middle-aged people can stand in the O2 and go, ‘They’re not as good as they used to be.’ It’d be the same with Oasis. ‘Yeah, we’re not as good as we used to be.
