Noel Gallagher is too brilliant, plans to take break from music
After British rock legends Oasis disbanded in 2009, breaking millions of hearts around the globe, Noel Gallagher started his new solo venture, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. The eponymous debut album was released in fall 2011 to mixed reviews. Lucky for us, Gallagher hasn't changed his snarky ways and in a recent XFM interview announced that he will already be taking a hiatus in 2013 as to preserve his musical genius.
"I'm taking a well-earned break after this," Gallagher said. "Why mess with brilliance? I'd only fuck it up. Look what it did to the aftermath of (What's The Story) Morning Glory?. Shit on it! Be Here Now?"
Gallagher is of course referring to Oasis' 1997 album, Be Here Now, often regarded as the band's worst album by uncreative music critics and the band itself. The record was infamously recorded while the band was on daily drug binges and is full of rich, layered, and seemingly endless songs.
So to safeguard his "brilliance," Gallagher will be taking time off from his project, as he prefers riding solo to being in a band with his brother and co-star of the famous "Wibling Rivalry," Liam Gallagher.
His response to whether or not Oasis will ever reunite? "Not even if all the starving children in the world depended on it."
Oh, Noel. Didn't some wise man once say to not look back in anger?
