Liam and Noel Gallagher Agree to Reform Oasis? British Paper Says 'Yes,' Too Soon To Get Excited
It's far too early to get too excited about anything, but an anonymous source told an English tabloid that Liam and Noel Gallagher of Oasis have come to a "gentleman's agreement" to reform the Britpop giants (from Billboard).
"It's early days in terms of the details, but Noel and Liam are back on good terms and ready to give things another go," the source told The Mirror. "Nothing is signed but it's what you might call a gentlemen's agreement between them."
We don't need to tell you that anonymous sources always need to be considered in context, and an anonymous source in a tabloid can usually be trusted about as far as you can throw them. So let's juts hope this one is skinny. One trustworthy thing that the source revealed: Noel "has yet to be completely convinced."
That's not at all surprising, considering that the guitarist is currently in better financial straights at the moment (just not according to him). His band—Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds—has been selling its second album Chasing Yesterday well, while Liam's band Beady Eye folded up during 2014. Still, we can hope that the title of the High Flying Birds' most recent album is a subconscious indicator that he's ready to give Oasis another run.
The relationship between the pair has always been rocky—the band's label once released a promotional 7" recording of the duo yelling at each other—and things took a raw turn during 2011 when Liam accused Noel (via lawsuit) of skipping a gig due to a hangover. Nonetheless, things have seen more cordial (relatively) as of late.
The source indicates that the reunion would happen during 2016 however, which would skip over this year's 20th anniversary of (What's The Story) Morning Glory?
