Noel Gallagher spoke last month about Oasis being eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.
He said “The fuckin’ fella from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame came to me and said, ‘Do you know in two years you’ll be eligible for the Hall of Fame?’ I said, ‘Is that right?’ He said, ‘Yes.’
“And he started going on, and I said, ‘Let me fucking stop you there. I know what it is. I know what it entails, and it won’t be fucking happening, OK?. He invited me down to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame itself and showed me all these exhibits of Oasis stuff. It’s a great place and all that, but I won’t be doing it, I don’t think.”
He spoke also on how he aims to keep negativity out of his songs. “I find it fascinating that people find the relationship between me and Liam fascinating,” he said. “It would only be fascinating if we were a songwriting partnership and had to make this thing work. But my songs all contain some kind of hope in them. I try to get some kind of hope and joy in there. I write when I’m happy, and I’m happy most of the time. When I’m sad – [and] I’m never really that sad – I just don’t write. I think there’s enough fucking bullshit in the world. You can sit and write about the news. Someone is doing it right now – Thom Yorke, probably. And I think there’s too much of that in the world. It’s very easy to write angst. I find it very difficult.”
