Noel Gallagher Was Left “Stunned” After a Girl Asked Him What He Does For a Living


Noel Gallagher said he was “stunned” recently after a girl asked him what he does for a living.

The former Oasis singer-songwriter appeared on Absolute Radio yesterday (January 17), announcing the fourth High Flying Birds album “Council Skies” and sharing the new single “Easy Now”.

At one point in the conversation, Gallagher mentioned that walking and socializing are still a big part of his life. “Every Thursday you can catch me in the West End – not on stage — usually at the firehouse, when I’m chatting nonsense with someone.

“The other day at the fire station, someone asked me, “What are you doing?” And I’m like this… I didn’t know what to say.”

Gallagher continued, “Well, I didn’t know what to say because I’d never been asked before. I thought: “Really?” He then pointed to his face and sang the chorus to the classic Oasis hit “Don’t Look Back in Anger”.

“[The girl said], “So what are you doing?” and I was like, “I’m changing people’s lives for the better.” She’s like, “Oh, what? Are you a medic?” I’m like, “In a way.”

The musician went on to say that the interaction left him “really stunned,” adding: “I thought: “Listen, Google it, my love… just type in “Noel Gallagher”, “High Flying Birds”… if you want. ‘Oasis’.

“Insert Liam Gallagher, you’ll probably see my picture.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Gallagher weighed in on the current debate about “children of nepotism” and talked about his next album.
