It seems that there is as much discussion about a possible Oasis reunion as there was about an inevitable Oasis break up while they were together.
The Gallagher’s like to keep you guessing. During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Noel claimed “If there is a reunion, I won’t be in it”.
Here’s a exerpt of the interview by Simon Vozick-Levinson
Definitely Maybe will be 20 years old next summer.
Do you think you’ll do anything to celebrate the anniversary?
Well, there would be the inevitable reissues, I would’ve thought. But are you asking, are the band going to get onstage and have a blast through “Rock ‘n’ Roll Star” somewhere, like the Philippines or something?
Well, you could do it anywhere.
I think I’d rather not, though.
I don’t know. We are split up. You’ve heard that, haven’t you? You must’ve heard.
I did hear that, yeah.
Yeah, so, ergo, band splits up, band is no more. There is no band. So, no, I won’t be getting involved, anyway. If there is a reunion, I won’t be in it.
Are you getting tired of answering questions about this?
No, I only answer about six a day, so it’s under control. I understand people will never stop asking until it happens. I know that that’s how it goes.
Are you still proud of Definitely Maybe, when you look back?
Of course. I’m proud of everything that we ever did. I mean, some songs are pretty shit, and there’s a couple of periods you’d rather forget, but I think on the whole… I think we made three great albums and four good ones, which is not bad out of eight. Kind of a 50 percent record. That’s pretty good, I think.
But I’m cool with it. I don’t think there’s any unfinished business. I don’t think that we left anything unsaid, do you know what I mean? It’s like, if you’ve seen [Oasis], then good for you. If you didn’t, then that’s fucking tough shit. I’ve never seen the Beatles. So there you go.
