Noel’s former bandmates introduced two Oasis songs – ‘Rock n Roll Star‘ and ‘Morning Glory‘ – to their setlist during a couple of recent outings in the UK, both of which were written by the elder Gallagher brother.
And, quoted in today’s Sun newspaper, Noel has said he is happy for Beady Eye to continue playing the big Oasis hits – as long as they remember to fill out the relevant PRS forms.
“Beady Eye have my permission to play my songs and they should do whatever they like,” he is quoted as saying. “I say he should go around the world, do those songs and fill out the PRS forms.”
Noel Gallagher has filled his own live gigs with a series of Oasis classics including ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger‘ and ‘Half The World Away‘ on the world tour in support of debut solo album ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds‘.
Beady Eye, meanwhile, initially shunned the prospect of playing Oasis tracks live while on tour for their own maiden studio effort ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding‘, but apparently had a change of heart before shows at the Warrington Parr Hall and Manchester’s Heaton Park in support of the Stone Roses last month.Just Published:
