Noel Gallagher won’t be happy if stumbles upon reggae covers of Oasis
Noel Gallagher has warned anyone making reggae versions of Oasis hits “there will be trouble”.
The ‘Wonderwall’ group’s former guitarist is seemingly unaware that the internet is rammed with reggae renditions of the Britpop group’s classics, as he quipped he’d be wanting words if he ever hears anyone doing a cover of ‘Live Forever’ in the Jamaican music style.
The 54-year-old guitarist is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper’s Wired column as saying: “They don’t have to ask permission to cover the songs if you’re not changing the arrangements.
“If you’re doing, like, reggae versions then it’s kind of courteous to ask.
“Goddamit, if I ever find out there are any reggae versions of ‘Live Forever’ out there, there’ll be f****** trouble.”
