Noel Gallagher wants to play guitar for The Smiths if they ever reunite

Noel Gallagher has revealed that he’d be up for becoming a guitarist in The Smiths if they were to ever reunite.

In an nterview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 he revealed that he’s keen on taking the background as a guitarist once more, and said The Smiths would provide the perfect place to do so.

“I would love to be in a band and just be a guitarist for a while. Not that band [Oasis], but sometimes when I sit in with Weller I just think ‘thank god for that’.”

When asked which band he would “jump at” to join, Noel revealed that the ‘Panic’ band – comprised of Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Mike Joyce, Andy Rourke and later Craig Gannon – would be the ideal choice.

“I would love, and it’s never gonna happen, it’s a thing in a parallel universe, if The Smiths got back together. I’m Craig Gannon and I’d go to Johnny [Marr] and say don’t get another guitarist mate – I’m your man.”
