Ed Sheeran Is Noel Gallagher's Latest Victim
Noel Gallagher is a man of many rants. There is always something that seems to be getting under his skin, and his latest target is Ed Sheeran. Noel was being interviewed for NME magazine when our favourite ginger selling out Wembley stadium, three times over, became the topic of conversation.
Noel said, “I don’t think I can live in a world where that’s even possible. When you hear that kind of polished pop and then there’s a ginger guy with a f**king guitar it seems subversive, but it’s f**king not.”
“It’s a strange time and it seems like the whole thing is embedded for good now, for f**king forever,” he continued.
“It’s not all over, but it’ll go back to the way it was in the early Eighties were indie bands are the alternative thing, the lower level.”
Gallagher also recently suggested that bands such as Oasis would have no chance in today’s music industry.
“Radio 1 judge you on how many f*cking followers you’ve got on Facebook. Music is very middle class. I’d have eaten Bastille alive in an afternoon in the nineties. One interview. Destroyed. Gone. Never to be heard of again.”
This is just the latest on a conveyor belt of complaints from Noel. The former Oasis guitarist has been relentlessly railing against the state of the music industry for years, branding any band who reaches number one “automatically s**t” and blaming Twitter for the lack of outspoken rockers.
There is at least one outspoken rocker, and that’s Noel himself. Noel has been campaigning hard to play Glastonbury soon, suggesting that he will “bring his amp and guitar” regardless of whether Michael Eavis officially books him. That’s all well and good, but you have to register and send your photo in Noel, and tickets sold out months ago. Oh, maybe not if its you, but that would be funny.
