on Oasis

from an interview in The Guardian in 2008,
"I'd hate to have a brother like Noel Gallagher. What's he doing? Liam is Oasis - he's handsome, he's a good front man, great voice. What does Noel do except write Beatles-type tunes? I've met him a couple of times and you feel like saying, "Shut up!" "

response to a journalist, in 2010, who had claimed Noel Gallagher had attempted to make Oasis sound like The Beatles,
"You’ve heard it all before haven’t you? Well, I have at least. Liam’s got a good voice but it’s a shame he hasn’t got someone behind him cracking the whip more."
