“I’d stab them with a knife!” Noel Gallagher admits he’d stab his brothers Liam and Paul if he ever had to write a song with them in the studio
Noel Gallagher has admitted that he would “pinch” his brothers if he ever had to write a song with them in the studio.
The 54-year-old guitarist, who was in the band Oasis with his younger brother Liam, 48, insisted during a performance on Worldwide FM in late May that he couldn’t think of anything worse than making a song with him.
He previously made seven studio albums with the band, before a final battle ended Oasis in 2009.

Noel said, “It’s a gift to write together…I’d kill my two fucking brothers if I had to write a song with them, I’d fucking kill their two.”
He added that sitting in a room with someone to write a song was a “special talent” he “wasn’t born with.”
“It’s a gift, and it’s something I really struggle with, my skills are in being the kind of lone wolf songwriter,” he added.

Noel, who also has an older brother, Paul, made his comments on Worldwide FM while discussing his lifelong passion for the Bee Gees.
He admitted that he is amazed that the brothers, Robin, Barry and Maurice Gibb, have been able to collaborate and write for so many years without arguing.
The singer added that he loves “that band’s story” and that they were a “songwriting machine.”
He said, ‘It’s the melodies and the songwriting, but also the fact that they’re from where I’m from, and their brothers and stuff. And they’re great songs, great voices, they’re just great.”

On Monday, Noel released the new song Flying On The Ground, the second track from his upcoming best-of album Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-2021).
The star said the song was “the best thing I’ve released since the last I released.”
The album will be released Friday to mark the 10th anniversary of his solo career with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
Last month, the two embattled brothers nearly crossed paths when they both attended the Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea at Porto’s Estadio do Dragao.

The result proved disappointing for the brothers – both lifelong fans of Manchester City, who grew up supporting the team as children.
Both Gallagher brothers have been regulars at Manchester City’s Etihad stadium over the years, and Noel was also spotted on the pitch when City won the Premier League title in 2018.
The brothers’ gig comes after plans for a new Oasis compilation album and accompanying bonus disc of unreleased material were “scarred” after Noel and Liam could not agree on the direction of the project.
The album was expected to follow the 2020 release of Don’t Stop…, a previously unheard of acoustic demo recorded by Noel in the mid-2000s.
Disappointed: Liam wore a blue windbreaker, often seen hooded up, and tinted pilot screens. He looked angry that his team had lost the game
