Go solo, Brown recommends

Indie icon Ian Brown has spoken out on the recent Oasis split, urging the Gallagher brothers to go solo.

Oasis are one of Britain's best loved groups, but particularly in Manchester. The band formed in the city, and despite achieving great success have never truly left their roots behind.

However the future of the band is now in the balance. Guitarist Noel Gallagher walked away from Oasis after a row with brother Liam just minutes before the band were due to go onstage in France.

Noel Gallagher has vowed that this, finally, is the end. Since then many stars have urged the pair to reconcile their differences, with one time Stone Roses singer Ian Brown speaking of his shock in a new interview.

"What's a shame is that they're brothers," he explained. "From being 10 and six scrapping on the carpet in the front room, now they are doing it in public and worldwide - I think that's a bit of a shame for them. Life's hard enough without scrapping with your brother when you're a grown man."

"I would say go solo," he added. "I can heartily recommend it. It's a fine way to be."

Speaking to the Press Association the singer also stated that he was honoured to be an inspiration by Oasis. "I always loved Oasis because when they came out, they did express that they loved us and they saw that we did it and they thought they could do it too."

"We're lads like they are, and that inspired them. That means a lot to me."

Ian Brown is set to release his new album 'My Way' on September 28th. For a track-by-track guide from the man himself, just click HERE!
