Noel Gallagher doesn’t think he’ll ever reconcile with his estranged father.
The former Oasis rocker, his brother and bandmate Liam and their eldest brother Paul cut off all ties with Tommy Gallagher after years of abuse, which included physical violence towards their mother Peggy.
After the Gallagher matriarch divorced their father in 1986, the brothers have never looked back and Noel has suggested he has no regrets about his father not being in his life.
Asked by the Irish Independent if he will ever make up with his dad, the 52-year-old musician said: “I wouldn’t have thought so, no. He doesn’t mean anything to me.
“The bad stuff completely outweighs the good stuff. OK, he got me into supporting Man City. Thanks a lot. That’s the least you could fucking do for me.”
Noel is extremely very close to his mum Peggy and revealed she rarely calls him up on his behaviour unless he’s slagging off his brother Liam.
When asked if he ever gets irate calls from his mother, Noel said: “Only the usual, you know, about Liam. That’s about it. But it’s like, once you get to a certain age it’s – ‘Mam, I’m not f**king 19 any more!’
“It goes back: once you leave home, mums don’t have an opinion any more. If she is complaining about shit now, I’ll say, ‘You are fucking aware that I’m 52, OK? I’m sorry. Those days are over. Over’. But you know, parents are parents. I’ll be the same with my kids. I’ll be giving out to them when I’m Peggy’s age.”
