Noel Gallagher pays tribute to the late artist during the ‘David Bowie Is‘ series saying that he is “right up there with the greats of all time”.
For the series’ fourth instalment, Noel looked back fondly on Bowie’s “forever changing” legacy and describing him as “fearless and not afraid of ridicule” with “a great, unique voice”.
Noel also recalled first time he met Bowie after seeing him perform at the Wembley Arena in November of 1995 in support of ‘Outside’ album, and his last interaction with David was after the 2014 BRIT Awards, where Gallagher and Kate Moss accepted Bowie’s award for Best Male Solo Artist.
“The very next night, I got an email pinged through on my iPad,” Gallagher explained. “It just said, ‘Thanks for the shoutout last night. Keep writing, love David.’ And I was thinking, ‘David? Who’s David? I don’t know anybody called David.’ And then it slowly dawned on me, so I emailed back straight away, ‘Oh, no problem mate…’ And then he emailed back straight away, and I was like, ‘Am I in a conversation with David Bowie!?’ “
