Noel Gallagher has dashed brother Liam’s hopes that Oasis could one day reform.
Liam claimed the band was his “life” and he would rather be part of it than his new group Beady Eye.
But Noel, 44, said he doesn’t want to reform the group he formed with his brother following split in August 2009.
Liam, 39, said: ‘If people think I’m going to be happy about the Oasis split then they’re wrong.
‘Even though I love Beady Eye, I’d prefer to still be in Oasis. That was my thing. Oasis was my life.’
However Noel said it was best that the band split and stayed that way, adding that his wild days ended with the band’s split.
He said yesterday: ‘All that needs to be said has been said.
‘There’s no need any more. I just want to forget the personality wars.
‘I decided, now I’m not in Oasis, that I don’t have to do that any more. In the end personal things had got so bad that it was best for everybody if we just called it a day.’
He added: ‘I was in a circle of friends where the party from the 90s was still raging.
‘I’d done too much and my insides couldn’t take it any more. I decided I’d go straight.
‘Suddenly you think: ‘Hang on, these people are quite mad, I’m not sure I like any of them.’
‘My entire life was 12 to 20 people and I walked away from them for good.’
And the final nail in the coffin came when Noel also said he would resist big-money offers to reform in 2014 for gigs to mark 20 years since the release of Oasis’ first album Definitely Maybe.
He said: ‘As it draws closer the drums will beat louder for it. But let’s wait for them, eh? It’s years away.’
Noel’s debut solo album, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, soared to No1 in the UK chart last year beating Liam’s Beady Eye disc, which peaked at No3.
