Noel Gallagher Told Ian Brown :There's Actually Nowhere Else to Take It
Our interview takes place in London, where the singer lives with his wife, Fabiola, and their son, Emilio. But he still keeps a home close to Manchester, where he regularly visits his two teenage sons from a previous relationship. The great northern capital of British pop remains close to Brown’s heart, and he has worked with numerous local legends during his solo career, including the Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher, Paul Ryder of Happy Mondays, and Andy Rourke of The Smiths. ........
........Brown remains an icon and inspiration to generations. Noel Gallagher has claimed many times that Oasis would never have existed without The Stone Roses. Brown pays homage to Oasis in return, and is philosophical about their recent split.
“They had a great run,” he shrugs. “It’s just a shame when you wash your dirty linen in public. I spoke to Noel the other day and he said that if he’d sat down and thought about it, there’s actually nowhere else to take it anyway. They took it further than anyone since The Beatles.”

And this is what Ian told The Guardian :
You've got this whole image that goes with your swagger, but you're actually quite gentle.
Everyone in Manchester walks like that. I am gentle. I think nearly everyone that makes music is sensitive – I don't care how hard they pretend they are. I met Johnny Rotten last year and he's nothing like his public persona. I know Liam [Gallagher] to be like that as well. He's a really sensitive guy.
Tony Wilson said Liam Gallagher learned everything from you.
Liam told me that himself. He was 16 when he came to see me live and he said that's what set him on his path.
What do you think about Oasis's split?
They've had a hard life, the Oasis brothers. They've done really well to be semi-normal. It's always sad when your dirty linen is brought out in public. You'll never find a Manchester band slagging off another Manchester band, but within each Manchester band, people will rip each other apart; Mondays, Smiths, New Order, Roses, Oasis. No one will slag each other off, but inside the band, they'll rip each other to death.
