The Strong Friendship Between Noel Gallagher And Bono


Oasis icon Noel Gallagher is one of the rock stars who have a reputation for being a trouble maker. The musician has a sharp tongue that many others may find unpleasant. In fact, there are numerous artists who had their share of Gallagher’s outspoken attitude including Green Day.

However, not everybody hates the Oasis lead guitarist’s controversial attitude as he has a close friend from the music industry many of you are familiar with, U2 lead singer Bono. The duo is often spotted attending shows together as well as spending time together in their private life as well.

Furthermore, they aren’t just close friends who share a dinner or a fun event. According to Noel Gallagher, the first person he would call if he ends up with a dead body is no other than Bono himself. Let’s dive into their relationship as well as this hypothetical question’s answer together.

Noel Gallagher And Bono Are Close Friends


Although one is one of the most brutally honest rock stars out there and the other isn’t particularly known for being a liked musician, Noel Gallagher and Bono have a close friendship. The two musicians don’t only bond over music as they toured together previously, but they also have fun times together including karaoke nights.

Both rockers frequently open up about their relationship during interviews as well. Noel Gallagher even praised his friend by saying that he’s a brilliant company during a night out when being interviewed by Vice back in 2015. Apparently, the two always have the best time until the sun comes back up.

About Bono’s drinking abilities, Gallagher said:

“But Bono, he is really fucking brilliant company. I’ve been drinking with him, and I’ve been leaving a bar at 6 in the morning and he’s on the bar singing opera. And he’s got a fucking gig the following night with 70,000 people. And I’m being escorted out like James Brown – fucking pissed.”

While they seem like two close pals who spend their time partying and having a good time, Bono and Gallagher actually have a relationship that includes trust. At least that’s what fans can deduct after one of Oasis icon’s interviews; let’s take a look.

Noel Gallagher Would Call Bono If He Had A Dead Body To Get Rid Off


During an appearance on Absolute Radio back in 2019, Noel Gallagher was asked about hypothetical scenarios one of which included the person he would call if he had a dead body in the back of his car. The musician directly named his fellow musician Paul Weller.

However, the rocker was quick to change his mind as Bono would be a much better partner in crime if he ever needed to get rid of a dead body. This unexpected endorsement of their friendship was crowned with a possible location to hide their crime.

According to Gallagher, the two could easily get rid of that dead body somewhere in Africa. Apparently, the Oasis icon has full confidence in the U2 frontman as he stated that nobody would understand what they were up to on their mission to dispose of a corpse.

Noel Gallagher’s statement follows:

“Paul Weller. Actually… Bono because we could dispose of the body somewhere in Africa and nobody would know.”
