Noel Gallagher details how he 'manipulated' actor Matt Smith to appear in music video
NOEL GALLAGHER has shared how he convinced Doctor Who and The Crown favourite, Matt Smith, to appear in his new High Flying Birds music video.The 38-year-old actor is best known for starring in Doctor Who and for playing Prince Philip in Netflix show The Crown.
Noel Gallagher has said that he would reunite with Oasis for £100m but he doesn't believe there is that amount of money available in the music business. However, his brother Liam Gallagher does, Noel said in a new interview.
Noel made his comments during an interview with Jonathan Ross.
The 53-year-old was responding to a comment made by his younger brother last year.
Liam claimed Noel had turned down the big sum of money for a reunion as it wasn't enough.
"There isn't £100m in the music business between all of us... if anybody wants to offer me £100m now, I'll say it now, I'll do it.
10 years of marriage! Prince William and Kate’s most romantic moments
On April 29, 2011, Prince William and Catherine Middleton tied the knot in a fairy tale wedding at Westminster Abbey in London. This year, the couple celebrate 10 years of marriage, which is traditionally associated with tin. To mark the special occasion, here are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s most romantic moments…
"I'll do it for £100m. Ludicrous. What is funny though is that I think Liam actually believes it, which is the funny thing," he told the host.
During their chat, Noel said that he didn't "particularly" miss performing with his brother, although he did get a bit emotional looking back at old footage.
Asked if he missed being on stage with Liam, Noel said: "Not particularly no.
"It's a different band. It's a different thing."
Later this year, the band will release a documentary that was filmed at the height of their fame.
Noel Gallagher health: ‘It's pretty bad' Star opens up about major condition affecting him
NOEL GALLAGHER needs little introduction. The star has spent countless years in the music industry, touring and performing for millions.Noel Gallagher, 53, is an English singer, songwriter, record producer and musician. He served as the songwriter, lead guitarist, and co-lead vocalist of the mega successful rock band Oasis. Perhaps owing to his years of touring with constant loud music, the singer's health began to greatly suffer.
"It's actually quite emotional watching it," the musician said after viewing the programme.
"That amount of people, pre-internet with no phones, nothing, the fans in the moment with the band.
"I can see what all the fuss was about now."
He went on to say that he was so close to it at the time that he couldn't see how other people viewed the band.
"Liam was at his absolute peak and the band was. I was like watching it thinking we were amazing, we really were," he added.
Frustratingly for the singer, who did not speak to his brother for a long stretch of time following the band's split in 2009, he is often mistaken for his sibling.
Noel said it happened on a "daily basis".
Earlier this year, the performer marked the 10th anniversary of his band High Flying Birds.
They have released new music and a Greatest Hits Album to mark the milestone.
During a chat with Zoe Ball on Radio Two, Noel said lockdown had given him the perfect opportunity to complete some unfinished tracks for the album.
The video for their latest release features his pal, The Crown star Matt Smith.
