'Oasis were better when I was in charge,' says Noel Gallagher


Noel Gallagher has been detailing his opinions on the success and eventual demise of Oasis.

Currently promoting his new book ‘Any Road Will Get Us There (If We Don’t Know Where We’re Going)’, Gallagher was drawn into the conversation about Oasis and the legacy the band left behind. As speculation continues to grow about a potential comeback, Noel took a little dig at his brother Liam by explaining how he believes that the band were at the height of their success because he was in charge the creative output.

“It’s not a coincidence that Oasis was better when I was in charge of everything,” Gallagher told Rolling Stone Argentina, “and as people grow, they feel the need to assert their own voice, which does not seem bad to me… They were rockstars with that attitude of ‘you can not tell me what to do, how to sing or dress’.

He continued: ”I was happy with the idea of spending time in the back seat, but it’s no coincidence that our best time has been when it was not like that. Now in the High Flying Birds, I am in control of everything and things have returned to their place.”
