The millionaire Noel Gallagher (but his fans think he's a poor rebel) should bring his own merchandise to gigs (as he repeated, he's interested in money only). The singer (?! singer one singing in falsetto to reach the high notes?) can’t understand why fans ask him to autograph scrappy pieces of paper rather than an album cover or poster (another strategy to sell more albums, as continuously menacing to retire soon). Maybe because you're a scrappy piece of paper... you look like a faded picture of what you used to be, I see the cracks freezing on your skin... You're not half the man you used to be.
He fears his signature will be tossed in a drawer filled with Z-lister scribbles and forgotten about.
Noel said: “When you are outside a gig and someone hands you an album to sign, that is great.
“But when people stop you in the street and say, ‘Can I have your autograph?’ and they pull out a receipt and say, ‘Just put your name on there’, you look at them and say, ‘Are you kidding me?’
(oh really? should they go around with your albums?)
“I sometimes ask, ‘What are you going to do with it?’ I bet they stick it in a drawer with autographs from people like Dale Winton and Barbara Windsor.
“Oh, nice one. Thanks, mate. I mean, what is the point in people signing stuff?”
(that's right... who is Noel Gallagher?)
Not surprisingly, Noel admits he’s never asked for an autograph. But he has requested a picture with another celebrity – once.
Noel said: “That was with Neil Young. I have never owned a camera.”
