Ex-Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher slams One Direction, Adele, Radiohead, his brother in profanity-laced interview BY Ethan Sacks NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Thursday, November 5, 2015, 4:28 PM A A A Share this URL Former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher is strumming up a boxed set worth of controversy with a profanity-laced interview that skewers just about every other act in the music business. Given an open mic by Esquire UK for its December cover story, the 48-year-old British musician would have made the nastiest of rock critics blush with his critiques of Radiohead, One Direction, Ellie Goulding and his own brother, Liam. "Does anybody give a f--- about what any of these current pop stars are up to? Who gives a s--- what f---- One Direction do? C---suckers, all of them in rehab by the time they're 30," ranted Gallagher. "Who gives a s--- what Ellie Goulding is up to? Really? Adele, what? Blows my f---- mind. It blows my f---- mind. Nobody cares! Fame's wasted on them, with their f---- in-ear monitors and their electronic cigarettes. And their fragrances that they're bringing out for Christmas. You f---- d----s." Much of the vitriol was saved for Radiohead, the brooding alt-rock band that was a rival of Oasis during the 1990s. "I'm aware that Radiohead have never had a f---- bad review," Gallagher complained. "I reckon if Thom Yorke f---- (excreted) into a light bulb and started blowing it like an empty beer bottle it'd probably get 9 out of 10 in f---- Mojo (magazine). I'm aware of that." David M. Benett Noel Gallagher unloaded on many musical acts in a profane interview with Esquire UK. Gallagher, however, did have some kind words for one fellow artist — an honor apparently harder to come by than a Grammy. "Fame's wasted on these c---s today. Bar Kanye," he told Esquire UK. "You watch him on the MTV Awards and you think, "You can f--- stay, you're alright." But his biggest attacks were saved for his own little brother, Liam, the lead singer for Oasis. Despite the band's enormous multi-platinum success, Oasis imploded in 2009 after a not-so-brotherly fight between the two backstage after a gig in Paris.

"I tell you what I think about Liam and this is just an opinion," began Gallagher. "He would f------ aggressively disagree. He was rightly put up there as this f--- huge rock star but he didn't write a note, not a word. "From my perspective I don't know how comfortable I'd feel about the mania surrounding us, and you knowing in your f--- soul that you were responsible for really wearing the clothes." After Oasis, the foul-mouthed Manchester product formed a new band, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. While the band released its second album, "Chasing Yesterday," earlier this year — the record he was ostensibly promoting in the Esquire UK interview — but he still misses the cocaine-fueled partying of the '90s. "I haven't got a 'My Drug Hell' story because it was f--- brilliant," says Gallagher, who added that he kicked the narcotic in 1998. "(But) what happened was I started getting massive panic attacks. You think you're going to die." Being an elder statesman in the British rock scene has given him perspective and wisdom — if not exactly softening the edges. "F---- hate whingeing rock stars. And I hate pop stars who are just… neh. Just nothing, you know?," he says. "Oh, yeah, my last selfie got 47-thousand-million likes on Instagram. Yeah, why don't you go f--- off and get a drug habit, you penis?"
