While Liam Gallagher has plans to perform the Oasis’ debut album, ‘Definitely Maybe’ in its entirety to celebrate the record’s 30th anniversary, Noel Gallagher has expressed a different stance on the matter. In a recent interview with Spin, Noel shared that although there are fans who couldn’t get to see Oasis on time, they have to overcome it somehow.
When asked if he would be hitting the stage to celebrate the album’s anniversary like his brother, Noel replied:
“Well, I’m not going to perform it in its entirety on the banjo, if that’s what you mean. I prefer to live in the moment and keep making new music. I acknowledge the past. ‘Definitely Maybe’ is great, and Oasis were great. It was an amazing moment in everybody’s lives, but you’ve got one life.”
Despite his own reluctance to revisit the album, Noel expressed support for Liam’s decision to perform live shows, saying:
“I don’t intend to f*cking live it in the past. If Liam wants to do the show, great. He’s got to make a living and all of that. Keep the f*cking flame alive. It’s not something I particularly would be able to put my heart and soul into.”
Elaborating further on his perspective and offering the fans a way to overcome this disappointment, the singer added:
“If Oasis hadn’t fulfilled its potential, I might have a different attitude towards it. But as Oasis did everything it set out to do and more. I don’t see the point. It was a moment in time, and if you missed it, tough sh*t. I missed the Sex Pistols, and I’ve managed to get over that. So, people should get over it.”
With the upcoming anniversary of ‘Definitely Maybe,’ there has been great anticipation among the fans for a potential reunion. However, the latest news is not quite in line with expectations unless, of course, one of the two parties takes a step toward this.
