Noel Gallagher has claimed that the start of the demise for Oasis came after he gave away a bag of clothes from Liam’s fashion label before it launched
Noel Gallagher has opened up on why Oasis split up and has confessed he was to blame.
The iconic band split up in 2009 and fans have pined for their return ever since.
But Noel has admitted the real reason he and brother Liam called it quits – with clothing brands being involved.
Noel, 54, said he fell out with younger brother Liam, 49, after he was gifted clothes from Liam’s brand that he didn’t like.
Noel admitted that when he took the clothes from the Pretty Green line he dumped them instead of wearing them, much to Liam’s dismay.
Noel confessed that Liam hit the roof when he found out he had donated the outfits to a charity shop a month before the brand launched in 2006.
He told The Sun : “Liam gave us a load of clobber, not just me, he gave the band it.
“I went straight to the charity shop and left it in the shop doorway.
“He went f****** mental. He said, ‘If you didn’t f****** want it, you should have just said you didn’t f******
want it, you c***.
“It was on the shop mannequin in Barnardo’s a month before it launched. If push comes to shove, that was the beginning of the end.”
In the past, Noel has blamed the band’s split on his brother. The Wonderwall stars were together for 18 years and landed eight number one singles from their seven albums.
Noel’s comments come a month after he paid his brother a rare compliment.
The pair have been at loggerheads since they went their separate ways but Noel has now discussed how his brother helped make the band what it was.
“I guess it’s no coincidence that as that is the band at its peak, it is because the singer is at his peak,” he said.
“You are only as good as your frontline. Any band. And if that is Oasis at its peak, which it is [Knebworth gig], it is because Liam is at its peak.
“Liam is at his zenith with his voice and the way that he looks.”
He also opened up about how a fan once punched him on stage.
In the unearthed clip, he told how a fan jumped on stage and hit him, leaving “blood everywhere”.
When he was asked why the fan did so, Noel said: “It was actually because he found out I was sleeping with his girlfriend.”
To which Liam nonchalantly adds: “Was it? Nice one,” before reaching for his drink.
