On June 1st Noel Gallagher was a guest in James Corden’s The Late Late Show.
He was quizzed about One Direction and particularly about Zayn Malik’s departure. The former Oasis, who has never showed particular sympathy for the famous boyband, this time was lenient enough and limited himself just saying: “I can’t understand why he [Malik] would do it because they’ve only got, at most, five years left. He should just stand at the back, smoke weed and get laid. But he should get himself a good accountant”.
Obviously, Corden didn’t let slip the opportunity to ask him about Oasis and, talking about the night of the split in 2009, Noel said: “It was in a festival in Paris. As I left the band, I was walking out of the dressing room and somebody came in and said ’10 minutes to stage time.’ And that was it. And we left a load of French people very, very upset in a field”.
At the end of the interview, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds performed ‘Lock all the doors’ from his second solo album ‘Chasing Yesterday’.
