Robbie Williams - Robbie Williams wasn't cool enough for Oasis

Robbie Williams wasn't ''mod'' enough for Oasis.

The 'Candy' hitmaker claims his friendship with brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher in the 90s was short-lived because he didn't follow the mod lifestyle - a subculture which existed in England in the 60s which revolved around music, fashion and scooters - which they believed in.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''Lad culture was a massive, massive thing. I love Oasis. I was a big fan of their music, vibe and energy.

''I happened to know them and knock about with them for a little while. I don't think I was their cup of tea.

''At the time I think the exact words were, 'I'm not mod', so I was sort of mates with them for a bit, then I didn't gel with them, so we stopped hanging out, simple as that.''

However, the singer claims he doesn't hold a grudge against the Gallagher brothers for their snub as he felt it was an honour to spend time with the ''rock 'n' roll'' duo - which culminated with him joining them on stage at the Glastonbury, although Noel had him removed.

Robbie added: ''Liam's voice was the voice of a generation and Noel seemed to be writing the songs of a generation. They were our Beatles for around 18 months.

''It was very, very exciting, high-octane stuff with various substances being taken left, right and centre, models, late night rock 'n' roll - all good fun!''

Robbie and Liam and Noel went on to to have a feud which lasted years. Their war of words was sparked when Noel branded the 'Angels' hitmaker just the ''fat dancer from Take That''.

At the BRIT Awards in 2000, Robbie invited Liam to have a prize fight for £100,000 with him as he took to the stage to collect a prize.
