Noel Gallagher has slammed Oasis fans, Liam’s documentary and those who believe in a reunion as he believes people cling to familiarity instead of new ideas.
He said during an interview with Spanish Magazine El Pais:
“I do not care about Oasis fans. I do not think you should, as an artist, always give people what they want. If you do that, popular culture dies. Look, nobody wanted Jimi Hendrix or the Sex Pistols. In 1961 nobody said: ‘We urgently need The Beatles’. If following your instincts means that there are people who liked what you did and not what you do now, it’s worth it.”
He also spoke about Liam’s documentary ‘As It Was’ with sarcasm saying:
“He made a documentary. What have I seen it? No. But I have been told that it is very funny, hilarious. It’s always funny to see how someone reinvents history.” He also took a dig at everyone who thinks an Oasis reunion is on the cards. He added, “Nobody has ever told me anything about an Oasis meeting. No fan has asked me. Well, that’s not entirely true. The taxi drivers in London do ask me a lot. Sometimes, I seem to be the only person in the world who does not know that Oasis is about to return. Fuck, nobody listens to me. It is tremendous. Someone comes from the press and says: ‘Oasis will come back one day’. I answer no, it’s not true. And they insist: ‘Yes, they will come back’. What the fuck is that? I just said no! This is how the world works That’s why the Avengers films are the most successful in history when it is the worst saga ever shot. That happens because in a world that changes all the time you look for something that is familiar.”
