Noel Gallagher on TIDAL: “They’re Going to Save the Fuckin’ World!”

noelgallagher

from a recent Rolling Stone interview….

Rolling Stone: You’ve said in the past that you want people to own music instead of stream it. What’s your take on Tidal?

Noel Gallagher: [Long pause] I thought that the people on the stage might want to be a little bit aware that they don’t look like Jay Z’s minions. Madonna was pretty cool the way she cocked her leg up on that desk and signed the [declaration].

I think ultimately with the spiel they came out with, it was like, “Do these people think they’re the fuckin’ Avengers? They’re going to save the fuckin’ [world].”

I was speaking to Chris [Martin] the day after, and I said, “Are you after a Nobel Peace Prize? Is that what you’re after?” They were like, “We’re going to fuckin’ save the music business.” And I’m just sitting there, thinking [imitates smoking weed] you might want to write a decent chorus for a fuckin’ start.

Never mind fuckin’ royalties and the “power of music.” Write a tune. Fuckin’ start with that.

    Mr. Gallagher’s opinion on a decent single malt scotch would be credible.

    This issue, not so much.

    Not helpful, Mr. Gallagher.
    Even if you write a brilliant “chorus” or “tune”, it matters whether the work generates income or that income is merely pirated and siphoned away, to profit others who have nothing to do with its creation.

        Right, and even if it wasn’t a Gallagher, how in the world does someone read a sentence that comes after ““Do these people think they’re the fuckin’ Avengers?” and take it as a serious statement?

          Yes, obviously a sarcastic statement. Not sure if DMN didn’t get that or was intentionally being misleading with the headline. Not good either way.
