“We weren’t as good as them” Noel Gallagher has his say on the Oasis-Beatles comparisons


Noel Gallagher has said that he was embarrassed that Oasis were compared to the Beatles.

Speaking at a premiere of new documentary The Beatles: Get Back, the musician said the world-famous band’s influence was “absolute”.

“They influenced everybody who influenced everybody else, who influenced everybody that came and went,” he said.

“Their influence is absolute.

“I don’t know a single guy playing the guitar or writing songs that wouldn’t cite the Beatles as an influence.

“And if he doesn’t, he’s undoubtedly going to be s**t.”

Asked if they remained an influence to him still, he replied: “Of course.


“When Oasis started, we were so big we were compared to them size-wise and musically, embarrassingly, compared to them as well.

“(It’s embarrassing) because we weren’t as good as them.

“They mean everything to me.”

He added: “They’ve definitely got the best tunes… hands down. In my record collection they’ve got the greatest tunes by far.”
