Noel Gallagher discusses Oasis Knebworth documentary due in 2021

Noel Gallagher doubts there will ever be another Oasis because working-class kids now can’t afford to form a band.

The musician, 54, is best known as a singer and lead guitarist for the popular rock band, formed in Manchester by him and his brother Liam Gallagher, 49, in 1991.

And while the siblings come from humble origins in Burnage, a suburb in the city, he thinks middle-class young people today have more of an edge in music.

Discussing rising talent, the Brit award winner questioned whether teenagers can still make music, with a recent question being: “14-year-olds in bands now where are you now?”

He commented: “Working-class kids can’t afford to do it now, because guitars are expensive, there’s no practice room. They’ve all been turned into pubs and apartments.”

The performer – who fronted Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – said there are now “countless middle-class bands” with members wearing guitars “as opposed to playing them.”

He thinks this is a privilege reserved for individuals with a certain amount of wealth. Noel commented: “Four or five boys from a council estate can’t afford guitars.”

In a recent interview, he also talked about how Oasis – the company he quit in 2009 after breaking up with Liam – is still selling hundreds of thousands of physical albums.

This comes despite the fact that we live in the age of online music, with the band’s success with copies of their music largely due to his brother’s performances.

Liam still performs major solo shows in which he plays the band’s biggest hits – including Wonderwall, Don’t Look Back in Anger and Some Might Say.

This brings in new generations of fans for their songs, despite the fact that the popular band hasn’t released a new studio album since Dig Out Your Soul was released in 2008.

Commenting on their continued success, Noel said: “Oasis sold 480,000 albums in 2021. It’s unbelievable, because people don’t buy albums. Liam keeps the flame alive.”

The brothers have pursued other musical projects since leaving Oasis. Liam originally founded Beady Eye, before going solo. Instead, Noel has his band High Flying Birds.
