Noel Gallagher claims no other band will ever be as big as Oasis

Noel Gallagher has claimed that no other band will ever reach the same heights as Oasis did during their 90s heyday.

The 44-year-old, currently enjoying success with his debut solo album, 'Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds,' told Mark Lawson that even the likes of Coldplay and U2 will never be as big as his former group were during a BBC4 interview which aired last night.

He said: "Nothing anybody does can be as big as Oasis. Not Coldplay, not Kasabian, not the Arctic Monkeys, in this country not U2, not any of them, its as simple as that. 

“It's not only me that lives up to that legacy, everyone else has too. We were the last. We were the greatest. The end.”

The ‘AKA...What A Life!’ singer, who quit the band in 2009 following a bitter row with brother Liam, also argued that he was the driving force behind their incredible success:

"I've had this reputation since the band have split up for being called a control freak. And I was. I controlled them all the way to Wembley and Knebworth and all the way to the top of the charts. So you're welcome."
