Okay, maybe Noel didn't exactly say that; he was just reaching for a firm way of saying "no" when asked about Oasis reforming:
Then asked if he would consider reforming Oasis, he said: "Not even if all the starving children in the world depended on it.To be honest, I've never really thought of Noel as caring overmuch for the starving kids of the world so this is hardly definitive. It's not like he said "not if it meant relegation for Man United" or something important to him.
Besides, he reckons he has nothing to prove:
I know it's the done thing these days and what people do, but it's not what I do. I know bands reform and 'They're bigger than they ever were' and 'They're more successful than they ever were', but Oasis were one of the biggest bands in the world.Oh, Noel, we know the reforming of bands has little to do with the size of the band, and everything to do with the size of the member's overdrafts.
But it's true, Oasis were one of the biggest bands in the world, assuming you ignore America and bands that were able to play venues bigger than the back room in a Denny's in America.
