Noel Gallagher Delays Solo Debut

Noel Gallagher will be too busy changing nappies to record any new songs.

The former Oasis singer and guitarist has told fans they will have to wait before he writes a solo album, as he and his girlfriend Sara MacDonald too busy with domestic duties.

He told BBC news: "I'm moving house and my missus is nine months pregnant so I'm not doing anything until well into next year.

"I'll be doing nappies and all that malarkey."

It has previously been reported Noel and his estranged brother Liam - who were in Oasis together until last year, when they fell out causing the band to split - were competing for the same backing musicians, former Oasis members Andy Bell and Gem Archer.

A source said: "It's a tricky situation for Gem and Andy.

"They are working with both Liam and Noel. Liam's begun rehearsing tracks for his new project, while Noel has been doing demos of songs as well.

"It's great for Gem and Andy, though. They get paid twice, but it's bound to lead to trouble in the future."

While Noel is taking time before starting his solo album, Liam has announced his new band - which features Andy and Gem and ex-Oasis drummer Chris Sharrock - will be called Beady Eye and are presently in the studio with producer Steve Lillywhite working on their debut album.
