Watch: Noel Gallagher Press Conference

As he discusses his new album

Noel Gallagher held his first press conference in some time this morning (July 6th) and you can watch some of the highlights!

The wisdom of Noel Gallagher would make one hell of a book. The collected quotes of Lord Noel, high priest of Britpop would take in all topics with the worldly philosopher rarely (if ever) holding back.

Holding his first press conference in years this morning (July 6th) Noel Gallagher finally broke his silence after departing Oasis. The important stuff: the guitarist is set to release a new album named ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’.

With a tour set to come, a collaborative effort with Amorphous Androgynous is also in the pipeline.

However aside from this Noel Gallagher took every question asked of him. The guitarist poured forth wisdom about the News International hacking scandal, while remaining magnanimous about his relationship with Liam Gallagher.

“I never really see myself as being a frontman and I can see it being a major pain in the ass for me” he admitted. “Now I’ve got to stand in the middle of the stage and that’s going to be weird and he’s probably better off without me because he’s in charge. It remains to be seen if I’m better off without him”.
