Noel Gallagher says he doesn't miss Oasis at all
Outspoken musician Noel Gallagher has admitted that he's happy working on his new project and doesn't actually miss being a part of Oasis at all.
During an interview with NME, he explained that the time had simply come to leave Oasis behind and he's enjoying the material he's creating with his High Flying Birds:
"No, I don't say that in a callous way. I don't think about it too much. If it was great I wouldn't have left, if it was all sh*ts and giggles then I'd wouldn't be doing this. I don't miss it, I enjoy what I do now."
Referring specifically to the difference between the two groups, he revealed that his new band is "harder work" and more of a mental challenge:
"This is a lot harder work than Oasis was, this is very hard on the brain, Oasis was hard on the soul. This is hard, you've got to be on it every night. When I was in Oasis, I'd shuffle on hungover, having been up late, by the time we got to my bits in the set I'd be very warmed up, but now I've got to be on it from the start."
Gallagher also spoke about his solo tour, adding that he didn't expect it to be so popular with fans: "I'm on the road till November. The record blew up on the road and I don't know if it'll happen like this again."
"We've just kept adding gigs and gigs. My second album has fallen by the wayside because we've just kept adding gigs."
