Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher Says Cocaine Ruined Be Here Now

Noel Gallagher says Oasis were "taking all the cocaine they could find" when they recorded 'Be Here Now'.

The group released their highly-anticipated third studio album in 1997 - the follow up to worldwide hit LP (What's The Story) Morning Glory?' - and while it was a huge commercial success, Noel admits it wasn't their best work because the band were taking so many drugs.

He said: "We were taking all the cocaine we could possibly find. When you're on cocaine, you think everything you do is incredible. The album is one of my least favourites, but wrapped up in that are some seriously amazing times. We were the biggest band in the world. We brought two DJs on the road. Who even brings one?"

The 44-year-old rocker - who quit the band in 2009 following a massive bust-up with brother Liam - doesn't look back with nostalgia on the group's 15-year career but he is very proud of everything they achieved.

The singer/songwriter - who released his first solo LP, 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds', last month - told Details magazine said: "I don't look back at old photographs or listen to my old records. I don't get it? Who the f**k cares? But those seminal records like Nirvana's 'Nevermind' and, dare I say, 'Definitely Maybe', young people should be tapped on the shoulder and shown what they missed. I'm glad we made one of those albums, maybe even two, and I'm glad I wrote all the songs on them. I feel very proud that people still give a s**t."
