More Oasis Watch Oasis - Lyla
Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has said the band deserve to be regarded as contemporaries to the Rolling Stones.

The guitarist told Rolling Stone magazine that the band had achieved a similar level of global recognition as the veteran group.

“We're not going to turn any new people on to Oasis. Oasis is a band that you either get it or you don't. Everybody knows who we are. You have to see us in league with the Rolling Stones now,” he said.

“Everybody's heard of the Stones, everybody knows what they sound like, everybody knows what they do. You either go because you like it or you don't. It's easy.”

As previously reported on Gigwise, Oasis will play a huge UK stadium tour next summer, which includes dates at London's Wembley stadium.

he's getting very modest in his old age.

Actually, the headline is a bit misleading. He's basically saying that at this stage in their respective careers most people have long ago made their minds up on each act - they're not attracting that many NEW fans.

Which is basically true - although he's talking through his arse if he DOES mean in 'global recognition' terms, which from the way the article is worded, would appear to be the writer's interpretation, not necessarily his.

he's not specifically saying they 'deserve' to be regarded as the Stones' contemporaries either (even if he probably believes it). the writer is twisting it to make it look that way for a headline.

What a load of old shite. Oasis have never had one iota of the integrity or the creativity of the Stones. Tell you what Noel - make an album as good as Let It Bleed and come back and talk.

Either Noel or the journalist needs to buy a dictionary;

contemporary (OF SAME PERIOD)
adjective
belonging to the same or a stated period in the past:
Almost all of the contemporary accounts of the event have been lost.
Most of the writers he was contemporary with were interested in the same subjects.

contemporary
noun [C]
1 someone living during the same period as someone else:
Was he a contemporary of Shakespeare's?

2 a person who is of the same age as you:
She didn't mix with her contemporaries, prefering the company of older people.

probably the journalist. it's his quote, after all. And he's merely paraphrasing someone else's interview. Very lazy journalism.

You might be right Gazza, but I can't help myself - I feel a big big ego behing thos quotes, that I don't like. But I might as well be wrong. I always thought that his brother Liam was an expert in talking like that, I thought Noel didn't boast so much.

Of course he has a big ego, but its hardly his fault in this case that some attention seeking journalist has tried to twist an interview with ANOTHER journalist into a headline, just so that it can piss a few people off.

In which case, he's been successful.

Not the first time this week we've seen a nothing story twisted into a 'quote' to get Stones fans worked up over absolutely nothing.

It seem Noel is listening to his handlers...it seems so pretentious to EVEN HAVE THE AUDACITY to compare himself and his band to the Stones, doesn't it ? NOT, "if" you have your, proverbial, head in your ARSE !

The poor buggers of this generation "need" a point of reference, so instead of picking up the REAL THING, they are stuck with listening to this EGOMANIAC, telling them to try the UN COLA, instead !

A case of the Blind Leading The Blind !

At least the mouthy monobrowed Manc now realises that the Stones are the ones worth emulating, not the pop band that split up almost 40 years ago.

I don't think Oasis belongs to the Big league (The Beatles, the Stones,U2, Elvis)They are musicians probably most wellknown in England, but outside of the UK not that much. They are not "icons". Just a popular english rock band.

Missing the point entirely. He's actually talking his own band down (for a change) - saying theyre not attracting new fans at this stage and either you get them or you dont.

Theres nowhere in that quote of his where he's saying they're musically comparable to or better than the Stones. Try re-reading it.

for once i am not going to bash noel because i dont think he was really comparing his band to the stones as being equal, it was just as far as the not attracting new fans idea is what he meant i think, because if he were really comparing the two i think even he even knows that would be a RIDICULOUS comment and quite foolish on his part

oasis are nothing like the stones.

the stones music at its best was creative, imaginative and energetic.

and they have lasted over 46 years.

wonder where oasis will be in the mid to late 2030,s.

wonder if they will write over 350 songs or release over 20 studio albums.

wee bobby lennox and Silver Dagger, He is is not comparing Oasis to the stones musicly or the amount of succes they had, he just says that they probably won't attract any new fans and that there fanbase is pretty much set for 95%. The same can indeed be said for the Stones, there fanbase is also pretty much set for 95%. Maybe some new fans will pop up but the it won't make a big impact to the whole number.

So, if you read his comments you see that he isn't attacking the stones or thinking he is just as good he just made a simple and accurate comparison.

Cheers,
Wuudy

Do people actually read this interview or just the Subject?
Schillid, what do you think is such a ridiculous about Noel's statement?

Credit where credit is due though. Definitely Maybe is probably the greatest debut album by any band ever. Similar to if the Beatles released Rubber Soul as their debut album.
