Noel Gallagher says he hid from Courtney Love. The English musician, who served as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and principal songwriter of the rock band Oasis said at the time he visited Los Angeles he was unable to handle Love. The Burnage, Manchester native,who learnt guitar at the age of thirteen and the brother of Liam Gallagher says that the opportunity did arise to meet her but made the decision to hide instead, saying what he couldnt handle about her was her “rowdiness”.
Speaking in the new issue of NME, Gallagher talks briefly about Love and admits that there is a reason the pair have never met.
“I read an interview with her once and she said, ‘I can’t fucking believe this. I know everyone in London and I’ve never fucking met Noel – was he hiding from me?’ And the answer is: yes,” he says.
Gallagher the continues:
“I was in a studio in LA and we were in the back recording [2005 Oasis album] ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’. And reception called us as said ‘Just to warn you: Courtney Love’s just walked in. I knew Liam was running around in reception and I though, ‘Brilliant, that’s a fucking meeting of minds right there.’ I could hear her shouting, ‘Where’s Noel? I gotta meet Noel!’ So I grabbed a cig, exited out the back door and went straight back to the motel and locked the door. I was like, ‘I can;t be dealing with her rowdiness – fucking hell, no way.’ But I applaud her.
