Noel Gallagher would have joined Kasabian "in a heartbeat"
Speaking to Shortlist.com, the iconic and ever outspoken musician opened up about how the dynamic has changed now that he has to be a frontman for his new High Flying Birds project and revealed that he does prefer being in the background:
"I hate audience participation in any form. I cringe when I see these bands doing all that “Everybody over here get your hands up!” sh*t. F*ck off. I’m not arsed where I am or even why you lot [the audience] are here. I’ve made a record, you’ve come to see me play it live."
"I would’ve joined that band (Kasabian) in a heartbeat, by the way. But they never asked. I never really got calls off anyone (once Oasis had split). I never had Bono phoning me, saying, “I’ve always thought The Edge could do with some back-up.”
He also explained how he feels when strangers approach him to talk about his ongoing feud with brother Liam, and added:
"I get people who say, “You should really make up with your brother.” I go, “Why’s that?” “For your mother’s sake.” What the f*ck’s it got to do with her? You don’t know Liam, you don’t know me, so f*ck off.
