‘I’d stab myself with a knife!’ Noel Gallagher, 55, jokes about how his younger self would react to collaborating with longtime chart star Damon Albarn
Noel Gallagher thinks his younger self would have “pushed him in the ass” for his decision to team up with Damon Albarn.
The rocker, 55, was teaming up with his old chart-topper when the Blur frontman asked him to sing backing vocals on his other group Gorillaz’ “We Got The Power” in 2017, and he thinks the worst would have been his teenage self not exactly impressed.
He told Big Issue: ‘How would my younger self feel about me working with Damon Albarn? It would depend entirely on which side of the bed I got out of that day.
‘If you caught me on a good day, I would say: yes, I can see that happening. On a bad day I f*****g myself in the b******s.’
The former Oasis songwriter added that he likes to go back in time to when he met David Bowie because he has “no memory whatsoever” of what happened.

He said: ‘I went to see David Bowie and Morrissey at Wembley Arena in the 90s. I was high and p*****. “Then, before Bowie came, someone came up to me and said, ‘Would you like to come and meet David?
“I was taken to see David Bowie in his dressing room. And I have no memory of it.
“I remember I came in and he was applying makeup in a mirror and that was it. He’s there with John Lennon for me and I have no idea what we said when I met him.
“If I could go back, I would appreciate that so much more. I’d tell him what he meant to me growing up and how much he means to me now, and I’d tell him, “I’m gonna drop you off to fuck when you’re dead, you know.”

Noel would also like to relive his 50th birthday party, as it marked the end of a “great” decade.
He said, ‘It was great. It was a three day affair so obviously my memories are a bit hazy about it.
“But I would love to relive that weekend. ‘My 40s were the best years of my life, they were incredible, amazing.
“But every day since I turned 50 has been a ****** ballache. Literally every day for the past five years has been a pain in the ass. “But my 50th birthday party was one of the craziest parties ever.”
