Say it ain’t so, Noel!
In a recent interview with Q Magazine, the Oasis frontman hinted with one single sentence what all Oasis fans fear – that their precious Gallagher brothers may soon take a break, like a five years long type of break…
By the time we make another record well be five years older.
The reason behind the possible break?
Well, for one, Noel appears set on releasing that solo album he’s been working on recently – Ive got a lot of songs lying around and some of them are really great, Gallagher noted. But theyre not Oasis songs. Theyre going to sit there and do nothing, so hopefully at the end of this tour Im going to go and do something for myself.
Then, there’s the fact that the British native hasn’t started work on the followup to last year’s Dig Out Your Soul yet, something, which given the band’s history, isn’t such a good thing:
“Even before the end of making each Oasis album, Ive always started writing the next one, and I havent this time. I dont want to force it.
Of course, all this doesn’t jive with comments made by Gallagher last October that the band had already completed and demoed material for the followup to Dig Out Your Soul. Then again, does anything this man does make sense?
