Noel Gallagher says he is going sober TODAY after drinking too much local cider in lockdown
NOEL Gallagher has revealed he decided to go sober for three months after he spent most of lockdown drinking cider.
He said last month he was planning on quitting booze yesterday and in a new interview said it was his love of scrumpy which was to blame.
The former Oasis singer said: “I never used to drink at home as a rule, ever. If I wanted a drink, I would go out to the pub and have a drink.
“I started drinking at home during lockdown and got right into it. It was just red wine and cider, not in the same glass.
“I drank a lot of red wine. Because I live out in Hampshire, the local cider is pretty spectacular.
“The good thing about country cider is you can’t have that much of it or you lose the use of your legs.
“So you can have one at night and feel good about it and feel good the next day.”
Noel, 54, said the new songs on his latest album with his band The High Flying Birds, Back The Way We Came, was written while he was drinking the local tipple.
Speaking to BBC Radio 2, Noel explained: “I’m kind of strolling around the house slightly sozzled going, ‘This is a great life I wrote another song today. I might have another drink.’ You can see people are just like, ‘Really? Nice one.’”
Noel, who became famed for going on huge benders with his brother, Liam, 48, during their Oasis hey-day, said he will attempt to go sober for three months.
He said last month: “I think it’s going to be like the 12th of September, because I’ve got parties to attend to and the last one is on the 11th.
“I’m going to do three months which takes me up to the middle of December and then I can get in training for Christmas.”
