Does Noel Gallagher Even Have An Opinion On Tibet ?
You know that much hyped Oasis show that got canceled because of guitarist Noel Gallagher's opinion on Tibet? Well, in case you had any doubt, it seems like his opinion may have been a bit overstated.
In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Noel admitted that he did indeed play a Free Tibet concert twelve years ago with the likes of U2, Radiohead, and the "f—ing Beastie Boys," but that beyond that he barely even remembers the show.
Furthermore when asked whether he has any strong feelings on the Tibet issue, Gallagher replied "No, not really, not one way or the other."
The lead guitarist for the self-proclaimed, greatest band in the world admits in the interview that while his music is "brilliant. It’s f—ing brilliant,” it rarely if ever touches on politics. Of course. Anyone who's listened to Oasis' music knows it rarely if ever touches on reality.
We're bummed that we didn't have the chance to sing along to "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova," and Noel sounds legitimately disappointed too, but its good to know that at least one band at least knows they're too strung out to care about politics. So thanks Oasis for just wanting to rock...and occasionally bicker with your siblings. At least you're not Bono.
