I will never forgive Liam, says Noel

Former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has said he will never forgive his brother for walking out on the band during a series of live shows six years ago.

The solo star ruled out an Oasis reunion following the dispute with the Britpop band’s then-frontman Liam during their tour in 2009.

Noel, who eventually walked out of Oasis after regular rows with his lead singer brother, was responsible for most of the band’s hits including Live Forever and Wonderwall.

The warring brothers have repeatedly been asked to comment on the prospect of a reunion – particularly at Glastonbury festival, where they are regularly installed among the favourites to headline the festival.

But in an interview with the Daily Mirror, Noel, who has gone on to enjoy solo success, appeared to rule out joining his sibling on stage again.

Recalling the 2009 tour, he said: “You would have to go out and say in English to a load of perplexed Japanese people, ’I know you don’t understand what I am f***ing saying, but the singer has gone off, so I am going to sing the f***ing rest of the songs’.

“I could never forgive him for that, ever.”

Last year, Liam sparked stories the band were getting back together with a series of cryptic tweets that led one bookmaker to suspend betting on the band playing the Somerset festival.
