Noel Gallagher is grateful to Leona Lewis for covering Oasis' STOP CRYING YOUR HEART OUT - because he's received massive royalty cheques for her rendition of the song.
The Bleeding Love singer's version of the Brit pop anthem appears on her 2009 album Echo, and she has performed the track on several of the U.K.'s biggest TV shows.
And Gallagher is delighted his rock classic has been given a pop twist as sales of Lewis' version have garnered the musician a massive pay cheque.
He says, "One word. In fact, it's more like a sound effect. It just goes 'kerching'. Thank you very much."
