Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher Ends Feud With Damon Albarn After 16 Years

Noel Gallagher has ended his notorious rift with rival rocker Damon Albarn, more than 16 years after they fell out.
The former Oasis star and the Blur frontman became arch-enemies in the mid-1990s after trading insults during interviews, and their feud escalated in 1995 when the two bands went head-to-head in the British singles chart.
They've refused to speak to each other ever since, but now Gallagher has revealed the two British stars rebuilt bridges between them after a chance meeting during a recent night out.
Gallagher tells Shortlist magazine, "Funnily enough, when I was out last night, I bumped into him. I literally haven't seen the guy for 15 f**king years and I bump into him in some club. We both went, 'Hey! F**king hell!' and then he said, 'Come on, let's go for a beer'.
"So, we're sitting there, having a beer, just going, 'What the f**k was all that about 15 years ago? That was mental.' Then he said, 'It was a great time, though', and I was like, 'Yeah, it was a f**king good laugh.' It was cool, man."
And Gallagher is adamant the feud between them was blown out of proportion, citing his famous negative comments about Jay Z playing Britain's Glastonbury festival in 2008 as an example of how his image is often misrepresented.
He adds, "Look, like I said to (Albarn) last night, you can say that you respect someone as an artist a thousand times and it will never get reported. But you call someone a c**t once... you know?
"And it still rings true today. I lose count of the number of times I've had to say about Jay Z, 'Look, hang on a minute here...' and it never gets f**king printed. But I don't mind. I can live with that."
