Noel Gallagher: Rock 'n' roll in hibernation

Noel Gallagher believes rock 'n' roll is "in hibernation".

The 'Ballad of the Mighty I' singer thinks the genre is currently experiencing a lull because he can't see any new bands emerging who are as good as rockers such as Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian who launched over a decade ago.

Asked if rock 'n' roll is dead, he said: "Not as long as I'm still going, it's f**king not!

"It's there but it's certainly lacking the re-generation process.

"Since the Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Razorlight and The Libertines there has been nothing. You name me one band since them.

"So that's ten years ago. So the evidence is that it is kind of in hibernation."

The 48-year-old former Oasis musician continued to say the band were part of "the old world" before the internet revolutionised the music industry.

He added: "Oasis was the last band from the old world. We happened before the digital age."

But Noel said he believes the internet has actually had a negative impact on rock because less people seem to be interested in it and record labels don't want to invest in up-and-coming bands like they did when Oasis launched.

Speaking on BBC Four's 'What Ever Happened to Rock 'n' Roll?' he explained: "In theory the internet and YouTube should be helping new bands get off the ground but it hasn't - it's got worse. The record labels just aren't interested in working-class bands any more."
