Noel Gallagher admits brother Liam is one of the last great rock ‘n’ roll stars

Noel Gallagher, 52, took part in a Q&A session at Salford Lads Club in Manchester last week where he discussed his love of David Bowie, songwriting and his estranged brother, Liam Gallagher, 47.

The fundraising in-conversation event, put together by organiser and old friend Alison Bel, saw the singer praise his younger sibling – despite the pair not speaking in a decade.

Showing his softer side, the High Flying Birds frontman was asked who would be in his supergroup and what he thought of singers nowadays.

Rather than putting together his ideal band, he listed off his favourite frontmen of all time.

During his response, he fondly referred to Liam as "our kid".

"There aren't any real mavericks anymore, except Ian Brown, Johnny Marr, Hooky (Peter Hook), (Bobby) Gillespie, Shaun Ryder and our kid," he replied.

It's not the first time the father-of-three opened up about the Wall of Glass hitmaker's talents.

"We broke up because of a perfect storm of little things," he explained.

"Once it was done it was done. It was me and the other fella.

"I wouldn’t have gotten anywhere without him, he wouldn’t have got anywhere without me.

"Now we’re doing our separate things – well he’s doing my thing, and I’m doing my thing too," he joked.

However, Noel confessed there would never be an Oasis reunion because he loves being "a solo artist".
