Noel Gallagher is stepping away from music for an unspecified period of time as he reenergises from touring with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Although the following comments are not linked to a specific news source, both Rip It Up and Gulf News attributed the quotes to Gallagher.
“I’m going to take voluntary redundancy and maybe grow a couple of beards. I like to get as far away from it as possible when I finish touring because it’s so full on when you’re doing it. There’s not just only the gigs, there’s all the other stuff that goes around it,” Gallagher reportedly said.
“I don’t know when it will be, but you just wait for some kind of call from somewhere – creative call or whether it be the elbow from the wife, which it was last time. ‘Get out the house, man’. She didn’t say it in as many words but that’s what she meant,” he said.
Gallager has confirmed his ‘voluntary redundancy’ via a post titled that’s that then, on his official website. In the final lines of the post, Gallagher wrote:
So . . . that’s that then. I shall, for the forseeable future, be indulging my beautiful wife and wonderful kids AND that crazy football club of mine.
There now follows a massive break in transmission.
