Outspoken OASIS star Noel Gallagher has hit out at drug-addled rocker PETE DOHERTY for being too soft.

The WONDERWALL guitarist is adamant the troubled Babyshambles frontman wouldn't be able to cope with life in his hard rocking band.

Gallagher says, "Listen son, you wouldn't last a rehearsal in Oasis.

"You'd be injecting washing up liquid into your sphincter within half a f**king hour."

The 37-year-old also blasts Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for resurrecting struggling British rockers Embrace's career by writing smash hit GRAVITY for them.

He says, "I don't know what the f**k he's doing writing songs for Embrace - but Chris can write a song."
