Gallagher challenges McCartney to write Oasis’ comeback song
After Paul McCartney joined the clamour for Oasis to reform, Noel Gallagher has challenged Macca to write Oasis’ comeback song
here have been many calls for Oasis to reform since they disbanded in August 2009. Now though former Beatle Paul McCartney has joined the chorus, and Noel Gallagher has offered Macca the opportunity to kick-start the reunion.
In a Q&A session with Japanese fans two weeks ago, McCartney said that the Gallagher brothers should “just get together and make some good music”. Noel’s response to McCartney was simple. In an interview for Yahoo! Music he said, “Tell him [McCartney] if he writes our comeback single, it’s on. Tell him to write an Oasis track and then we’ll talk. I’ll just put that out there.”
However, fans of Oasis probably shouldn’t hang their hopes on the band getting back together to play live, as Gallagher went on to say, “I’m not really interested in what fans want. I’m not bothered about that. If you didn’t see us [before], then you didn’t see us. I’ve never seen Nirvana. So fucking what? The world’s not gonna end. Lots of people never saw The Beatles or the Sex Pistols, and it didn’t make a fucking bit of difference to music, do you know what I mean? I wouldn’t do it. I don’t need it for the glory; I get enough of that. I don’t need the money. I don’t need the fucking hassle.”
The last song that Oasis played live as a band was The Beatles’ I Am the Walrus, with the band performing the song on 22 August 2009 at V Festival in Staffordshire, UK.
