Liam Gallagher Says He Hasn't Seen Brother Noel In 'About 10 Years'

Liam Gallagher Says He Hasn't Seen Brother Noel In 'About 10 Years'

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 knack for writing anthems saw Oasis became one of the biggest bands in British history.

But their sibling rivalry ultimately led to the band's undoing, with Noel walking away in 2009 after one fight too many.

Fast-forward to the present day and both brothers are enjoying success as solo artists; however, all these years on, 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 match about 10 years ago. It's a shame, isn't it?

"The good times outweigh the bad times. I think it's best to just leave it at that."

But despite all of the bad blood, LG still holds out hope of a reunion some day.

"I like to think Oasis will get back together, but not this week," he said.

"The door is ajar on everything. I wouldn't be surprised if space aliens landed tomorrow. I wouldn't be surprised if they were already here. I wouldn't be surprised if God walks among us. I wouldn't be surprised by all sorts."

Still, the idea of Noel reaching out for a reconciliation seems perhaps even more unlikely than God/aliens walking among us.

On numerous occasions, Liam has opened up about his desire to get the band back together, but Noel doesn't seem to have this craving at all, and appears quite content releasing music as Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

Liam claimed in 2020 that Noel turned down £100 million ($122 million) for a reunion, but Noel subsequently rubbished the claim, adding that it would be sad for the band to get back together in such a way.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show last year, he said: "There isn't £100million in the music business between all of us… if anybody wants to offer me £100million now, I'll say it now, I'll do it.

"I'll do it for £100million. Ludicrous. What is funny though is that I think Liam actually believes it."

He continued: "It was all wrapped up in youth and camaraderie. Once that has gone you cannot put that genie back in the bottle. It would just be for showbiz -– and for a mere paltry £100million."

For the time being then at least, Oasis fans will have to make do with the brothers' respective solo output, with Liam's third solo album C'mon You Know coming out later this month.

He is also playing two huge shows next month in Knebworth, where Oasis played historic gigs to 250,000 people back in 1996.
