Liam and Noel Gallagher haven’t seen each other for “about 10 years”, according to the younger brother.
Liam’s distinctive voice and Noel’s talent for writing anthems helped Oasis become one of the greatest bands in British history.
But their sibling rivalry ultimately led to the group’s downfall, with Noel walking away in 2009 after one fight too many.
Fast forward to the present day and both brothers find success as solo artists; however, all these years later, they still haven’t been able to reconcile.
Speaking to Esquire, Liam – who turns 50 in September – said: “The last time I saw Noel was at a football game about 10 years ago. It’s a shame, isn’t it?
“The good times outweigh the bad times. I think it’s best to leave it at that. »
But despite all the bad blood, LG still holds out hope for a reunion one day.
“I like to think Oasis will get back together, but not this week,” he said.
“The door is ajar to everything. I wouldn’t be surprised if aliens landed tomorrow. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were already there. I wouldn’t be surprised if God walks among us. I wouldn’t be surprised by any sorts. »
Still, the idea of Noel seeking reconciliation seems perhaps even more unlikely than God/aliens walking among us.
On numerous occasions, Liam has spoken of his desire to reunite the band, but Noel doesn’t seem to have that inclination at all and seems quite content to release music as Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
Liam claimed in 2020 that Noel had turned down £100m ($122m) for a reunion, but Noel later dismissed the claim, adding that it would be sad if the band got back together in this way.
We were offered £100m for a tour still not enough for the foodie soul well stay young LG

speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show last year he said: ‘There’s not £100m in the music business between all of us… if someone wants to offer me £100m now I’ll say it now , I will do it.
“I will do it for £100m. Ridiculous. Funny thing is, I think Liam really believes in it. »
He continued, “It was all about youth and camaraderie. Once that’s gone, you can’t put that genie back in the bottle. It would be just for showbiz – and for just £100million. »
For now at least, Oasis fans will have to settle for the brothers’ respective solo releases, featuring Liam’s third solo album. Come on you know coming out later this month.
He will also play two huge shows next month at Knebworth, where Oasis played historic gigs in front of 250,000 people in 1996.
