Noel Gallagher has said that this year’s Brit Awards made him feel very old and asking the question on many people’s lips; “Who the fuck is Ben Howard?” (Now Ben’s album is very good late night listening.. but it ain’t rock!)
Gallagher attended the Brits alongside Blur‘s Damon Albarn with the pair on hand to celebrate the success of War Child, who were handed a Special Recognition award for their services to the music industry.
Speaking to The Mirror about his evening, Noel said: “I shared a table with Damon. I could see us collaborating in the future, why not? Maybe at next year’s Brits.”
Damon Albarn was equally complimentary, saying: “Noel’s a great laugh. I love him.”
However, Noel was left bemused by the Brit Awards and, in particular, who the winner of Best Male and British Breakthrough Act on the night is:
“I mean, who the fuck is Ben Howard? I suddenly felt very old tonight. I’d never heard of anybody. I’m sure he’s brilliant but where are all the rock bands?”
It’s The BRITS Noel.. hasn’t been rocky for many’s a year now in my head!
