In 2009, the successful rock band Oasis has disbanded as Noel made a breakup statement and quit after his ongoing conflict with his younger brother Liam Gallagher. Their heated argument during the festival in Paris was the last straw although they were fighting over even the smallest things like a leather jacket.
In most of the interviews he joined, when Noel was asked about the breakup, he stated that it was the best thing he could have done for himself and the band as he thought the fans were bored of them even before their split. He has also denied any future plans for a reunion saying Oasis was done. As for a piece of recent news, it is known that a documentary will be released this year about Oasis’s most famous shows with the contributions of Liam and Noel Gallagher.
In the recent interview, Noel looked back to his decision to leave Oasis and stated that the reason for it was that the verbal and violent insults towards him. He also mentioned that the fact that those around him were not tolerable as well as the lack of support and understanding from his bandmates and management while sharing the real reasons behind his decision
Gallagher was also asked whether he wrote his breakup statement by himself or someone else prepared for him. Noel stated that he didn’t write the statement, as he was in such a fury and stressful condition that he did not have the energy to say something. When asked the statement sounds so much like him, he added that he was not in such a mood, and his wife and kids came over and asked him to sign off on it when he was in France. According to the latest interview, Noel thinks someone in his office wrote it.
Here is what Noel Gallagher said:
“The details are not important and of too great a number to list. But I feel you have the right to know that the level of verbal and violent intimidation towards me, my family, friends, and comrades has become intolerable.
And the lack of support and understanding from my management and bandmates has left me with no other option than to get me cape and seek pastures new.”
He then added:
“I didn’t write it [the breakup statement]. I was in such a fury, and I was in a really stressful time, and being the way that I am was prepared to walk away and say nothing.
And my management was saying, ‘You cannot say anything to your fans.’ And I was like, ‘There’s nothing to say, it’s done.’
And I got on a flight, went to the south of France, and then [wife] Sara and the kids came over. And by the time they’d got there, they said, ‘Well, can you sign off on this?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah…’ But someone in my office wrote it.”
