He's not happy...
Noel Gallagher

Ed Sheeran’s success has made most people happy – except Noel Gallagher, it seems.

The guitarist isn’t happy that the ginger-haired one will be topping the charts this year. Speaking to NME, Noel Gallagher said: "I don’t think I can live in a world where that’s even possible. When you hear that kind of polished pop and then there’s a ginger guy with a fucking guitar it seems subversive, but it’s fucking not."

The guitarist went on to say: "It’s a strange time, and it seems like the whole thing is embedded for good now, for fucking forever. It’s not all over, but it’ll go back to the way it was in the early ‘80s where indie bands are the alternative thing, the lower level. In the early ‘80s everyone at indie labels, even major labels, were trying to push this music to the fore because everything else was shit, and maybe it’ll happen again, but I don’t see it for the next decade."

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will release their new album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ on March 3rd.
