Noel Gallagher: Oasis Will Never Reunite

Noel Gallagher Oasis ReunionNext year marks the 20th anniversary of Definitely Maybe, the massive debut album from Brit-rockers Oasis. As such, there’s already speculation that the band-who broke up acrimoniously in 2009-would get back together to commemorate the event. According to Oasis’ guitarist/songwriter Noel Gallagher, that’s not going to happen any time soon.

Rolling Stone interviewed Gallagher about his former band’s upcoming landmark, but Gallagher used the interview as a chance to squash any talk of a reunited Oasis. “We are split up,” Gallagher said. “If there’s a reunion, I won’t be involved.” Not only will Gallagher not be involved, he doesn’t see a reason to reunite: “I don’t think there’s any unfinished business. I don’t think we left anything unsaid.”

Oasis parted ways in 2009 after Noel publicly quit the group, saying that he “couldn’t stand working with Liam [Gallagher, Noel’s brother and Oasis’ lead singer] a day longer.” Noel has since turned his attention to a solo career, while Liam and the rest of Oasis formed the group Beady Eye. In a recent cover story with the NME, Liam said that he would consider re-forming Oasis to commemorate Definitely Maybe‘s 20 anniversary for no financial reward.
