Noel Gallagher, formerly of Oasis, has an issue with the lack of rock stars these days.
On a recent episode of Matt Morgan’s podcast, Gallagher runs down his problems with the music industry. Not one to hold back strong words, Gallagher said, “The biggest-selling acts are s***, whereas when I was growing up the biggest-selling acts were the best acts. The biggest band in the world was usually the best band in the world. Now the biggest thing in the world is f****** Taylor Swift. What?! F*** off.”
As far as not having proper rock stars anymore, Gallagher said, ““There’ll never be another David Bowie, there’ll never be another Marc Bolan, there’ll never be another Freddie Mercury, proper rock stars.” Continuing, he says, ““They’ll never be people like that because musicians will never make that kind of money and the ones that do like Ed Sheeran, f****** whatever.
