Damon Albarn: “Noel Gallagher is like a comrade”

Taken from an interview from the Rolling Stone with Damon Albarn.

How did it compare with the cocaine-themed 50th birthday party you at­tended for your friend Noel Gallagher last year?

Oh, mine was pathetic compared with his! His was spectacular. No comparison.

You and Noel were archrivals in the U.K. music scene in the Nineties, when you were leading Blur and he Oasis. How does that friendship work today?

He’s like a comrade. It’s about that specific moment in time when you both get the carpet pulled from underneath you, and everything you’ve been abstractly dreaming about suddenly becomes a reality. I was 22, and I couldn’t walk down the street without everybody recognizing me. That’s an exhilarating but terrifying moment, and we went through it together.
