"That’s why people like me, I’m a do-badder," Noel Gallagher said, teasing his long-term rock 'n' roll friend.
Noel Gallagher has explained why people don't like Bono in a new interview.
The Oasis frontman spoke to Absolute Radio’s Andy Bush and Richie Firth about how people don't actually dislike U2, but are irked by Bono's "do-gooder" attitude instead.
“I get a bit frustrated when people are like ‘I don’t like U2',” Gallagher said.
“And I’m like no, what you are saying is you don’t like Bono. It’s like you’re not telling me you don’t like one single note that they’ve ever done. It’s rubbish, it’s nonsense.”
He added: “I’ve said this to him, so I’ll say it to you: nobody likes a do-gooder, nobody likes it. That’s why people like me, I’m a do-badder.”
The 'Wonderwall' singer has a great friendship with the Irish rock legend, telling the radio show in 2019 he would choose Bono to hide a body in the unlikely situation he would ever need it.
“Paul Weller. Actually...Bono because we could dispose of the body somewhere in Africa and nobody would know,” he said.
Earlier this week, the British singer released his latest track with Noe Gallagher's High Flying Birds titled 'Flying On The Ground’.
He described his new song as "If Burt Bacharach wrote for Motown this is what it would sound like...only not as good...obviously.”
