Noel Gallagher expected being a solo artist to be "hard work".
The former Oasis guitarist - who quit the group in 2009 due to tension with his brother, frontman Liam Gallagher enjoys the freedom he has going it alone and the last few years have been a "breeze".
I didn't know what to expect when my daughter and I walked into Noel Gallagher and the High Flying Birds at House of Blues in June 2015. His second album, "Chasing Yesterday," had caught my ear but, admittedly, I'd skipped its predecessor, "Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds." I went because she liked Oasis, a band I had followed fervently for just a few years.
Noel Gallagher "doesn't really like" Oasis' biggest hit 'Wonderwall'.
The 50-year-old rock star has admitted that despite the success worldwide with the track from the band's seminal 1995 studio album '(What's the Story) Morning Glory?' he doesn't rate it as one of the best and thinks 'Cigarettes and Alcohol' from 1994's 'Definitely Maybe' is a "far more superior" song.
