Simmons "loves" the Arctic Monkeys, but says of most British musicians, "I don't care what they do, who they're s---ing, where they live ... they're not interesting people. The most interesting people to me are the Gallagher brothers. The interesting thing about them is they're drug addicts and alcoholics and they fight with each other. That's really it."
The Oasis brothers are currently pursuing projects separately, but are certainly keeping fans including Simmons entertained with their ongoing spats, which came to a head last summer when Noel walked out on the band after an argument with Liam backstage at a festival in France.
Rumors that Oasis was finished circulated, with both brothers fanning the flames in the press. In November Liam clarified that the band would go on without Noel, who apparently "wanted out."
"We had an argument -- but we've had bigger ones, about more important people," Liam said at the time. "Basically, I think [Noel] wanted out, wanted something different, but he hadn't got the bollocks to tell the band or the fans."
Oasis is currently working under the name Oasis 2.0, and plans to release a new album this year. Meanwhile, Noel is preparing for solo spots on Mar. 25 and 26 at London's Royal Albert Hall as part of a series benefiting the Teenage Cancer Trust. The shows will be his first solo performances since leaving Oasis.
