Oasis leader Noel Gallagher spoke in an interview that shared by a Youtube Channel called “Sound Bites”. He slams a lot of names from music world and politics.
He said that Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are boring. Also Dave Grohl and Josh Homme are making boring music. Here’s the statement:
“I think that it’s very easy for guys with guitars to pick up those guitars these days and just sing about what’s on the news. I don’t know what the point of all of that is. I think to write songs in this day and age that are full of joy and hope, is almost revolutionary.
I think that guitar music has become more about fucking shouting, like Dave Grohl, what’s he on about? Green Day, and the guy from Queens of the Stone Age, what are they shouting about? They’re shouting about the fucking news. Who wants to sing about the news?
The news is boring. Donald Trump is fucking boring. Politics is boring. The little fat guy from North Korea, he looks funny, but he’s fucking boring.
So why would you want to write music about that [stuff]? I think to write songs about joy and hope is fucking revolutionary. There, I just said it, revolutionary.“
