Noel Gallagher caused a fair amount of tumult back in August when he announced on the band’s official website that he was quitting Oasis. Though that was cause for alarm among Oasis fans, Noel Gallagher’s such a hyperbolic character that that announcement might not have necessarily seemed entirely true.
Well, in an interview with Times Online published Thursday, Liam Gallagher confirmed that, not only is Noel out of the band, but “Oasis is no longer.” Gallagher continued, “I think we all know that, so that’s done.” When pressed further if that was what he honestly felt, Gallagher held fast: “Oh, I know. Without a doubt. And it’s a shame but that’s life. We had a good run at it. The thing about Oasis is, no one … we ended Oasis. No one ended it for us. Which was pretty, kind of … cool . I’m thinking of what the next step is musically, which is all my mind’s on.”
That certainly sounds final enough, but in ten years when the band is strapped for cash, who knows?
