Terminal gob-shite Noel Gallagher is shooting his mouth off again and this time Ed Sheeran is in the firing line. NME report that Gallagher has expressed his dismay at the fact Ed Sheeran will play three gigs at Wembley Stadium later this year.
However, Gallagher is not happy this is happening. He told NME that “I don’t think I can live in a world where that’s even possible. When you hear that kind of polished pop and then there’s a ginger guy with a fucking guitar it seems subversive, but it’s fucking not.”
Gallagher continues by giving a pretty bleak appraisal of the current music scene. He said,
“It’s a strange time, and it seems like the whole thing is embedded for good now, for fucking forever. It’s not all over, but it’ll go back to the way it was in the early ‘80s where indie bands are the alternative thing, the lower level. In the early ‘80s everyone at indie labels, even major labels, were trying to push this music to the fore because everything else was shit, and maybe it’ll happen again, but I don’t see it for the next decade.”
Of course Sheeran might justifiably fire back “What does a washed up has been know about the current music scene.” After all Sheeran’s Album “X” is the best selling album of the year and in addition it has been streamed over 430 million times. Figures Gallagher can only dream about.
Sheeran took to twitter in response to Gallagher’s comment that he can’t live in such a world simply saying “I can live in it, its really enjoyable”
Sheeran has sold out three 80,000 shows at Wembley, he will play at at this year’s 57th Grammy Awards and is nominated for three awards at this year’s ceremony.
Gallagher on the other hand has done none of these things.
