THE LINK ABOVE IS FOR THE FULL INTERVIEW WHICH IS HILARIOUS!
THE TEXT BELOW IS A SUMMARY FROM ANOTHER ARTICLE, I SUGGEST YOU READ THE TELEGRAPH VERSION ABOVE


Oasis' Gallagher To U2's Bono: 'Shut The F**k Up' About Africa
By Staff
Feb 8, 2007

Noel Gallagher has told Bono to "shut the f**k up" about Africa. The Oasis guitarist is sick of the U2 frontman campaigning to end Third World debt in the continent, and insists Bono's fans don't want to be constantly lectured by their idol.
Noel told Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper: "With U2 it's like play 'One' , shut the f**k up about Africa. People don't want to hear about it all the time."

The outspoken songwriter has also blasted Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke for brow-beating his fans with his political beliefs. He has urged him to ditch his serious attitude to music and write a 'proper' rock song.



He said: "Thom Yorke sat at a piano singing, 'This is f***ed up', for half-an-hour. We all know that, Mr Yorke. Who wants to sing the news? No matter how much you sit there twiddling, going, 'We're all doomed', at the end of the day people will always want to hear him play 'Creep'. Get over it."

Noel - who along with brother Liam and the rest of the band will collect the prestigious Outstanding Contribution To Music award at next week's BRITs - has no intention to stop writing hit songs.

The rocker - whose band has scored an incredible eight UK number singles, including 'Lyla' and 'Don't Look Back In Anger' - added: "Somehow I don't ever see myself on stage playing a mouth organ to 150 people on a Wednesday. Every time I write a song, I envisage them in football stadiums with loads of people going f***ing mental - that's Oasis." (c) BANG

I must say well done Noel. I went to see U2 in 2005 and he bored me for ages. A whole 10-15 mins banging on about Africa, i just wanted to hear the tunes.

Honestly, I prefer Bono's inane rambling over Noel's lame attempts to generate some self publicity.

It would be best if they both shut up !

Bono could get rid of third world debt with all the money he has. That's the amusing part.

yes, that's what's the most annoying part of listening to Bono pontificate about Africa. i'm sure he does contribute, but being lectured on giving to charity by a multi-millionaire is somewhat jarring.....

He is right. A point can be made subtly. People don't want to be banged on the head. They need to think it through for themselves.

Didn't know human life was reduced to a
"political view". What a wonderful thought!

Then again, this is Africa!
Who cares about Africa!

Rock on Bono!
Keep up the good fight!

It's good to bring the issue to the public spotlight, but overdoing it is something else. Once you pass the message, it's useless to keep banging it on our heads.

Bono urges the Irish government to spen more on Africa....yet all his money is locked away in off-shore accounts, meaning that the Irish government receives practically zero in tax from one of it's wealthiest citizens.

What a hypocrite

THE SUNDAY TIMES RICH LIST 2006: THE FILM & TELEVISION MILLIONAIRES

U2 sit on top of the Irish entertainers list, now worth EUR690m (GBP469m). The band generated more income than any other in the world last year, according to Billboard magazine. Digital and album sales, plus box office receipts totalled more than EUR215m (GBP146m) last year alone. The four band members, headed by lead singer Bono, split all income five ways with an equal share going to manager, Paul McGuinness.

That's nice.
