FORMER Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher says he has never had “one serious offer” to get his old band back together.

The musician, who walked out of Oasis in 2009 after regular rows with his lead singer brother Liam, was responsible for most of the band’s hits including Live Forever and Wonderwall.

He told The Times: “Given all the rumours, I haven’t had one serious offer for a reunion gig.”

Last year, Liam sparked stories the band were getting back together with a series of cryptic tweets that led one bookmaker to suspend betting on the band playing the Somerset festival.

But Noel said: “Michael Eavis has never called up and asked if Oasis will play Glastonbury.”

He refused to totally rule out any prospect of a reunion, saying: “It’s always like this. At the end of the interview some guy will say, ‘I’ve got to ask...’ And I reply: ‘If, if it was happening, do you really think I’d let the world know by telling you?’”
