Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher Not Chasing Success

Noel Gallagher has ''had enough'' of ''chasing'' success.

The 'If I Had a Gun' singer admits he had a much greater drive to have hits in the earlier part of his career as guitarist and songwriter in Oasis, but he's now comfortable with his solo career and High Flying Birds project.

He said: ''There was a point in the 90s and in the early 2000s where I was obsessed with success, chasing the big hits and all that, but I've had enough of that now.''

Noel added his attitude to songwriting has also changed, and he no longer worries when he gets a spell of writer's block.

He added to Absolute Radio's Pete Mitchell: ''Sometimes I can write five songs in a row, very quick, over like a five week period, and then sometimes I go months and months without writing anything, and that's when I used to get a bit edgy and nervous and like 'Oh, I'll just write something'.

''I've learned now to just let it find me, and I don't know what it is. I don't have a special place where I keep all my notes or anything like that, do you know what I mean, it's purely inspiration, my whole thing is pure inspiration, it's just 'There it is'.''
