Noel Gallagher has joked he would end up "knifing" his brothers if he ever had to write a song in the studio with them.
The 54-year-old guitarist has two siblings, older brother Paul and younger brother Liam, and despite making seven studio albums with Liam, 48, when they were in Oasis together, Noel insists he can think of nothing worse than having to sit down and create a song with the singer, as he prefers to be a “lone Wolf songwriter”.
He said: “It’s a gift to co-write ... I’d kill my f****ing two brothers if I had to write a song with them, I'd f***ing knife the pair of them.
“To sit in a room with other people to write a song is a special talent. I wasn't born with that talent.

“Pre-1987. The Bee Gees for me was Saturday Night Fever and all that, I knew they were from Manchester I didn't take a great deal of notice of them. And a friend of mine who was not a friend, but he was one of the roadies for the other bands. So all the three Manchester bands Inspiral Carpets, The Stones and the Happy Mondays all had the same pool of road crew
“So one of these guys called Phil Smith, still works for me to this day, he's my tour DJ, great guy, we call him Phil Spectator ... He played all this early 60s, mid 60s stuff. I was knocked out cold. I couldn't believe it. It kickstarted a life-long obsession with that band, and I've loved them ever since.
"I just love the story of that band. And I was lucky enough to meet them down the years, separately, and they were just a proper proper, proper songwriting machine. I'm even having Saturday Night Fever now. I love it. I've got the utmost respect for them. And, yeah, I love them and they speak to me.
