Noel Gallagher had the best response to Liam calling him a potato

Some might say Noel Gallagher has been rather quiet of late.

Not for nothing is Noel one of the most outspoken men in rock – he loves giving an opinion - and yet following an oddly spectacular barb thrown his way by brother Liam recently, who called him “a potato” of all things, there wasn’t much in the way of a retort to the spud-based insult. Until now.

Speaking to The Toronto Star, Noel said:

"That’s so unlike him. I guess it was about him staying relevant. If you’re him, what else is there to tweet about? How his spring/summer collections are doing for his clothing firm? I’m not sure that warrants a tweet. Should he ever climb out of the 'where are they now' basket and grant you an interview, ask him. I’m sure you’ll get a typically f---ing surreal answer."

Not done there he then revealed the pair hadn’t been on proper speaking terms since 1996:

“I tolerated him up until he stopped being able to sing. When singing becomes shouting — I switched off then. I was just amassing money.”

Adding, “I’ve always been a loner anyway, even as a child. I prefer my own company. I’m literally the only person who can put up with me.”

Also revealing he still has no real ambition to ‘crack’ North America, Noel found time to talk about the two candidates potentially vying to become the next President of the US:

“I checked out Donald Trump’s bets bits on YouTube. It’s him and Clinton, innit? Which pretty much means America’s f---ed. ’Cause they’ve got enough s--- on Clinton, haven’t they? Aren’t those two in it up to their armpits? Then you’ve got the comedic genius that is Donald Trump. Is Canada preparing for an influx of refugees?

“I don’t really take much notice of American politics. I resent the way you have to know about it. Who gives a s--- who the president of America is? And I hate the way they say 'leader of the free world', just because they’ve got the most rockets.”

Like we said. Never shy of an opinion.
