Director of the new Oasis documentary is convinced that the band will reform
I need to be myself, I can't be no one else.
This year marked the 20th anniversary of Oasis' memorable Knebworth gigs and the brothers Gallagher have rarely been out of the news. Rumours of the band reuniting refuse to go away, and while it might appear that Liam and Noel are half the world away from repairing their rift, a reunion could be closer than you think.
Some might say that Matt Whitecross, director of the new Oasis documentary Supersonic, is a man that knows more than most and he's supremely confident that the rock 'n roll stars will be back.
Speaking with NME, Whitecross said "neither of them have discounted the idea of getting back together. It will happen, I'm sure. The idea of never seeing them again for me is impossible."
He continued: "Noel said everyone is always coming up to them giving them advice about how they are going to mend this relationship. He's friends with Chris Martin and he said Chris should quit the music business and become a therapist because every week he goes 'Look this is how you are going to patch up the band'. Noel said look no one knows like we know each other and it will happen when it happens but we can't force it. Liam was like 'He's full of shit' and Noel's like 'He's full of shit'."
What would it take for Oasis to get back together? Here's what Whitecross believes: "Noel said unless it was an obscene amount of money what would be the point in any of them getting back together. Liam is like 'No fuck it we were great.' So I think they've still got it. They should go out and give it a go. I feel people out there want it so I hope they get it.
Will Oasis be back? Definitely maybe.
Supersonic is out in cinemas on October 2 and it's produced by Asif Kapadia (director of Senna and Amy).
