Noel Gallagher Claims to Have Lost Millions Since He Went Solo

Noel Gallagher seems to have entered an economic desert ever since he left Oasis. In an interview with Loaded magazine, the U.K. singer said he’s lost millions of dollars since he went solo. “Everything I’ve done since I left Oasis has come from my own pocket,” he said. “You’ve got to pay for the tour, got to pay for the wages and you don’t really break even for about nine months.” Exactly how much did he lose, you ask? “I mean I lost a fucking shitload of money,” Gallagher answers. “It was a few million, like. I had to lie to [my wife Sara MacDonald] at first, and when I eventually did tell her, she freaked out.”

It’s not all bad. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ new album Chasing Yesterday debuted at No. 1 in the U.K. when it was released last month. (via Billboard)
