Alan McGee: Oasis Will Reform
Former Creation label boss Alan McGee says Oasis will reform "in four or five years".
Alan McGee, who founded the Creation record label and signed Oasis, says he thinks the band will get together again, despite last year's acrimonious split.
“Yeah, in about three or four or five years time, they will," he told BBC 6 Music. "I'm pretty sure."
Guitarist and chief songwriter Noel Gallagher quit Oasis last August, announcing: "People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer."
At the time, McGee called the brothers' bust-up "the worst fall-out that they've ever had".
Now, he says, "I think they'll make up".
"I mean, they’re brothers. Its like, I’ve fallen out with my sister before and we’re best mates now. Why are brothers gonna be any different?"
McGee, who semi-retired from the music industry two years ago, also revealed he had heard Noel Gallagher's heavily anticipated solo material.
“I’ve got Noel's demos," he said. "Noel's demos are absolutely amazing. Totally amazing.
"He’s got three tunes there that are as good as anything - as Live Forever or Don't Look Back In Anger.
"The reason that guy is quiet is he knows what he's got up his sleeve."
Liam Gallagher has also been recording material with his band, Beady Eye - which features former Oasis musicians Gem Archer and Andy Bell.
The band have announced they will release a single, Bring The Light, as a free download on their official website tomorrow (10 November).
McGee said he had not yet heard Liam's new songs, which were recorded with U2 producer Steve Lilywhite.
