Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher Says New Musical Start Is Daunting

Noel Gallagher says starting his solo career is like "giving up drugs and moving on to a new circle of friends".

The guitarist is fronting his new project Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and admits he's still got to get used to his new "collective" of musicians after quitting Oasis and seeing the other members - his brother Liam, Gem Archer, Chris Sharrock and Andy Bell - form Beady Eye.

Speaking about his new group, he said: "They're a collective more than a band. Anyone can join and anyone can leave. I was sat in bed one night before I got my band together. I said to my wife, 'It's just dawned on me, I've got to find five other people. I won't know their wives or girlfriends, or mates, and I've got to share a tour bus with them.'

"It's like giving up drugs and moving on to a new circle of friends."

Noel, 44, also claims there is no animosity between him and most of Beady Eye, and he even likes some of their songs.

He added to Q magazine: "I don't want to get into one with them. They're cool guys and I wish them all the luck in the world. I've always loved 'The Roller', I've got a demo of it with me playing the drums, Gem, Liam singing."
