Robbie Williams wasn’t cool enough for Oasis
ROBBIE Williams has admitted the Gallagher brothers ditched him in the 90s because he wasn’t “mod” enough for their tastes.
The ‘Candy’ hitmaker claims his friendship with brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher in the 90s was short-lived because he didn’t follow the mod lifestyle – a subculture which existed in England in the 60s which revolved around music, fashion and scooters – which they believed in.
He told The Sun newspaper: “Lad culture was a massive, massive thing. I love Oasis. I was a big fan of their music, vibe and energy.
“I happened to know them and knock about with them for a little while. I don’t think I was their cup of tea.
“At the time I think the exact words were, ‘I’m not mod’, so I was sort of mates with them for a bit, then I didn’t gel with them, so we stopped hanging out, simple as that.” BANG!
