For Lars Ulrich, Noel Gallagher was “brave or stupid” for leaving Oasis

Guitarist Noel Gallagher recalled in an interview with drummer Lars Ulrich (Metallica) on his radio show on Beats1, the time he left Oasis. The musician left the band in 2009, hours before a headliner performance at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris, thanks to a fight with his brother, Liam Gallagher.


Noel rescued a curious text message he received from Lars Ulrich after his departure from Oasis. “I remember that the day after I left Oasis, I got a message from the Metallica drummer,” he said playfully.

The content was revealed by Noel next. “He said to me something like, ‘Either you’re incredibly brave or incredibly stupid to do it!’ And I texted him back, saying, ‘I think it’s going to be all right.’ but I’m happy to see where I am now, “he said.

Gallagher also told Lars Ulrich that he plans to release two albums soon. “I have a large catalog of songs, I compose all the time, so I have a lot of material,” he said.

Check out an excerpt from the following interview:

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
