Sir Noel Gallagher backs U2 - despite not knowing anyone else who likes the band!

However, the 'Falling Down' rocker admits his bandmates - brother Liam Gallagher, guitarist Gem Archer and bassist Andy Bell - and friends in the music business don't share his love for the Irish group.

He added: "I am a fan and I wouldn't think that they could do a great deal wrong in my eyes. Well I have to say, much to the disgust of everybody else that I know in the music business, I'm actually a fan of U2. No one else I know likes them, but I do, I love them."

Noel Gallagher Interview by Oasis - Absolute Radio Media Player

He also talks about going for PM!
Says he is Glad U2 are opening the Brit Awards
Says he likes Boots

Its towards the end of the interview for those who wish to skip the other chitchat

He's a smart man is Noel.

Paul Weller is another person who's made no secret of his dislike for U2, funny that he also happens to be a close friend of Noel Gallagers.

If you want to be at the top you have to be prepared for people to not like or envy your success. It's human nature.

Ah good old noel gallagher, couldn't give a stuff if no one else likes them. Good for him I say.

Am very suprised at Paul Weller disliking them so much though

Fuckin' Oasis, dude. It's hard to even give the music a chance when every member of the band is a complete tool.

Well this is true lol The music is good as well, but like you say, they are a bunch of idiots these days.

And last time I saw Liam sing on some awards show OMG it was terrible.....

Yes, they say many stupid things but to many they are very influential figures - if you read about their lifestory you might understand why they act like they do.

Noel is right 99.9% of the time - he is also a comedic genius
Andy and Gem - no one really cares about but they to can be funny (see Dig Out Your Soul on the Streets)

Liam - got to give the guy credit for his self belief - he is also funny but not as much as Noel
His voice sometimes sucks but the tunes are designed for him - he suits the music

Too true.

But those first two albums are classics regardless.

Well, the guys might be a bunch of idiots (I find Noel very funny though), but we're going to marry then or listen to their music? If the music is good, I usually, not always don't give a fuck about the band says, their personal beliefs, etc.
